"Salon des Grandes Complications will bring together some of the greatest horological masterpieces of today, and the masters who make them, for the first time under one roof in the UAE. Guests will encounter a hands-on experience of the heritage, craftsmanship and artistry behind the brands and their commended timepieces. As the leading importer of luxury timepieces in the region, the UAE is a natural location to host an exhibition of such a caliber and we are excited to be presenting the first annual edition," said organiser Nader Freiha, Director of MPP Middle East and Publisher of Arabian Watches & Jewellery magazine.
