I’ve learned a lot over the last few days at Dubai Watch Week â about modern collecting habits, how independent watchmakers see the current market, and how various industry parties are working to create ever more innovative and interesting products year after year. But it turns out that Mohammed Seddiqi (the curator of Dubai Watch Week and Chief Commercial Officer of Seddiqi Holding, the company behind Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the Middle East’s largest retailer) is an extremely savvy collector of both vintage and modern watches, and he was kind enough to offer us a small peek into his vast collection. What you’re about to see is some pretty serious horology, my friends. Pretty serious indeed.
This is far from the complete collection â we’re talking just 14 watches here, but they show the great diversity of Seddiqi’s collection, which includes limited edition modern pieces, iconic models from the history of 20th-century watchmaking, and seriously rare vintage watches too. Enjoy.
