Our sister publication WatchTime Middle East, in association with Momentum Dubai, staged its first collectors’ night for a gathering of some of the country’s biggest watch aficionados.

Held at the Cigar Lounge at The Address Downtown on May 20, the event included presentations by two UAE-based collectors, Adriano Davidoni and Oliver Wullf, who talked about vintage Longines and aviation watches from the Second World War, respectively. Guests were treated to a display of rare timepieces from both their incredible collections. Also on display were a selection of watches from Rivoli.
