Welcome to the Scottish Watches podcast, episode 288! Our cohost today is Barbara Palumbo who returns to welcome our guest of honor Hind Abdul Hamied Seddiqi, chief of marketing and communications officer at Seddiqi Holding and director-general of Dubai Watch Week. Dubai Watch Week is an event that has been occurring since 2015 and it’s back to an in-person event this year. It’s free to visit and during the show, you’ll be able to enjoy different panel discussions, auctions, master classes on watchmaking, and obviously, there will be many brands showcasing their watches. It is a very interactive environment, so there’s a chance you could get to meet and touch, to see if they’re real, your favorite CEOs, journalists, watchmakers, etc. Hind recaps the previous years of the show and foreshadows what we could expect in this year’s show. We also get to know how she fell in love with watches, it’s a story that includes a family business, the JLC Reverso, and camel races. It’s a fun one.
