Salon des Grandes Complications (SDGC), the region’s top watch show, will make its debut in Saudi Arabia, after three successful editions in the UAE.
Featuring an impressive line-up of some of the world’s most reputable and respected horological brands, the event is the first of its kind in the kingdom and will run from May 8 to 11.
SDGC will run alongside the prestigious Jewellery Salon at Al Faisaliah Hotel in Riyadh. It will showcase well-known maisons and independent ateliers such as Breitling, Bulgari, Chopard, Czapek & Cie, Fabergé, Girard-Perregaux, Greubel Forsey, Kerbedanz, Lang & Heyne, Panerai, Rudis Sylva and Vacheron Constantin.
Between them, these companies have crafted some of the most complicated and highly valued timepieces ever and won numerous awards at events such as the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève and Middle East Watch of the Year.
Jewellery Salon is taking place for the seventh consecutive year and attracts an impressive number of visitors including members of the royal family, distinguished VIPs and dignatiaries, and influential buyers from across the GCC.
Being held outside of the UAE for the first time, SDGC will make an exciting addition to the Jewellery Salon with a wide-ranging display of ground-breaking innovations, novelties and unique timepieces.
The watchmaking exhibition premiered in 2014 with the aim of offering the world’s best horological brands a platform to engage with watch enthusiasts and collectors from across the Middle East, and has since become an annual event.
SDGC is held with the full support of the Swiss Embassy in Saudi Arabia and social media partner Watch Anish.
