The Stellar Odyssey by Jaeger-LeCoultre comes to Dubai

DATE & TIME

This exhibition by the luxury watchmaker brand pays homage to the astronomical phenomena at the core of time measurement.

Calling all watch enthusiasts! 

For the entire month of February, Dubai gets to play lucky host for The Stellar Odyssey, a major exhibition by Swiss watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre.

The exhibition marks an exciting time for both watch lovers and the general public alike, to discover how the mysteries of the cosmos are translated into micro-mechanical wonders that capture the universe in miniature, in order to tell the time.

Following the inauguration of The Stellar Odyssey at Watches & Wonders in 2022, Dubai has been chosen as the first stop on a tour of major world cities. The exhibition will be staged in a spectacular pavilion ‘floating’ on the waters of the Dubai Fountain, with Burj Khalifa as its backdrop.

Catch the exhibition from 4-23 February, open daily from 10am to 12am on weekdays and from 10am to 1am on weekends. And the tickets can be booked online for free! 

Through all that we observe in our night sky, The Stellar Odyssey reveals the awe-inspiring phenomena that the watchmakers of Jaeger-LeCoultre express through their celestial complications. 

Explore some of their most remarkable timepieces – including the extraordinary Atmos clock and the Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 – the exhibition features multi-media installations that will take visitors on a virtual journey to the cosmos. 

Within the main exhibition pavilion, The Stellar Odyssey explores the creative and cultural universe of astronomically-inspired watchmaking in eight chapters. In the heart of the main pavilion beneath a geodesic dome, an immersive digital show will take visitors on a virtual journey through space and time, transporting them through infinite space and 13.7 billion years of time to reveal the mysteries of the cosmos in five episodes – from the origins of our known universe to the present day.
