Salon des Grandes Complications | Jeddah – Riyadh

MissNewzy is extremely enthusiastic about the Horology exhibition that will be held for the third year in Saudi Arabia, sixth year in the region.

Returning to Saudi Arabia for the third year in a row, Salon des Grandes Complications will once again be held in both Jeddah and Riyadh, showcasing the latest masterpieces from some of the most celebrated watchmakers in history.

The fine watchmaking exhibition will kick off in Jeddah at the Hilton Hotel from 8th-11th April and then move to Al Faisaliah Hotel in Riyadh the following week from 15th-18th April 2019.

One of the most prestigious events of its kind in the Middle East, Salon des Grandes Complications debuted in Dubai in 2014, later branching out to Saudi Arabia due to high demand and the appreciation of exceptional timepieces.

Saudi Arabia is a key Middle Eastern market for watchmakers – last year saw a year-on-year increase in the import of Swiss watches by 6%, and this figure is only set to increase with new policies. The capital is home to over 10,000 collectors; Jeddah on the other hand is Saudi Arabia’s commercial hub, with almost as many horological aficionados estimated to live there.

Designed to offer a platform for Maisons and enthusiasts to convene, Salon des Grandes Complications creates opportunities for knowledge to be exchanged and collectors to discover – often for the first time in the region – limited editions, the newest launches, and unique rarities. 

Among the international brands present at the 2019 edition are Bell & Ross, Blancpain, Breguet, Breitling, Fabergé, Girard-Perregaux, Greubel Forsey, Harry Winston, Montblanc, Rudis Sylva, TAG Heuer, Ulysse Nardin and Zenith.
