Mohammed Seddiqi, chief commercial officer of Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, the Middle East’s largest luxury watch retailer, describes how Dubai is edging back to normality.

Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons continued to trade through the month-long lock down in the United Arab Emirates, despite all of its boutiques closing.
The company does not yet sell watches online — something Mr Seddiqi hints is likely to change — but his associates were busy every day speaking to their key clients and taking orders.
