This year’s edition of Dubai Watch Week celebrates two of the industry’s biggest progress drivers; innovation and technology. The intersection of radical thought coupled with enhanced technical ability has impacted progress in watchmaking not just technically speaking, be it the transportation of clock movements into wristwatches, to producing pieces that can be lifted thousands of miles into the air or hundreds of meters underwater or to watches that now connect with mobile and digital applications.
