n original concept pioneered by Dubai Watch Week, the Horology Forum is an intellectual space comprised of free-flowing discussions between master craftsmen, captains of industry and seasoned collectors. In light of current events, the Horology Forum will take place digitally, on the Dubai Watch Week YouTube platform.
The panels will be pre-recorded and will air on 24th, 26th, 28th October and 9th November.
Hind Seddiqi, Director General of Dubai Watch Week commented: “We are delighted to announce the first online edition of the highly anticipated Horology Forum. Our objective of uniting the watch community and providing an educational platform is at the forefront of what we hope to achieve via this experience. We look forward to hosting our esteemed speakers and connecting with our audience around the world.”
Some new formats will be introduced during the 6th Horology Forum; instead of moderators, panels will be led by individuals from the Dubai Watch Week Committee to play ‘Devil’s Advocate.’ As each panel airs, the audience will be able to pose their questions instantaneously by engaging in a live Q&A session through the comments on YouTube, with opportunity to submit follow up questions on social media in the days that follow.
