Following the success of the global event series Two Decades of F.P. Journe & De Bethune – A Retrospective Exhibition, WatchBox will roll out the next chapter of its world tour in Dubai from February 15-17, in a dedicated environment at the Four Seasons DIFC.

“Dubai is an incredibly important region for watch scholarship and collecting,” said Danny Govberg, WatchBox co-founder and Executive Chairman. “Our retrospective exhibition has been established as an unmissable experience for discerning collectors of modern independent watchmaking, and we’re excited to meet the passionate collector community on the ground.”
