Time is of the essence when there's so much to do but don't worry, we've got you covered during Dubai's first watch week

The countdown is over and the show has begun. As Dubai Watch Week (DWW) ticks into action, you won't want to miss any of the happenings during the week, and there are many. So to make things a little easier for you, we're sharing the events list so you can zoom in and clock on.

There will be several galleries and exhibitions for the public to view. These include:

'GPHG exhibition' at Opera Gallery

'Rebels of Horology' at Farjam Gallery

'The Independent Journey'

In addition to the main exhibitions, DWW incorporates other events across a series of panel discussions, conversations and watch-making workshops. Including discussions on the 'Transmission of Knowledge', 'The Art of Horology', 'Innovation & Technology', 'How to Buy at Auctions', 'Effect of Social Media', 'Historical Collectors', 'Haute Horlogerie', 'Fake Watch Industry' and 'Collecting Vintage Watches'.

If you're interested in getting an insight into the minds of the movers and shakers of the industry, join in the Conversations and hear the thoughts of industry bigwigs like Guillaume Tetu from Hautlence, Edouard Meylan from H. Moser & Cie and Pierre Jacque from De Bethune. For those who are more hands-on, stop by the Watch-making masterclasses by exceptional artisans like Marco Lang and Peter Speake-Marin.

With so much to do, see and hear, you'll be surprised at how quickly time flies when you're at DWW.
