Created in memory of the former President of the U.A.E. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the exclusive watch collection saw a fitting venue for its glittering launch which took place at the Burj Al Arab on 18 December, 2005 and was attended by top VVIP’s, dignitaries, business and government personnel from both GCC countries and around the world.
This majestic line pays an emotional homage to one of the great visionaries of our time and has been designed and crafted in the best traditions of Swiss making. The company has produced exactly 86 pieces of this exquisite collection globally, with certification for pre-identified/ selected individuals and VVIPs. Each of the 86 watches represents a year in the life of this noble leader and comes packaged in a wooden collector’s box that carries a book on the life of the late President and his achievements, which have put the region firmly on the international arena.
The special limited edition of watches is an exclusive line of creations crafted in 18k solid gold, ringed by 71 diamonds, and carries a profile of Sheikh Zayed on its watch face and engraved image of this legendary personality on the case back.
It is a product of stringent quality control measures and is a brilliant scintillating piece that is an apt testimony to the great watch making tradition of Montres Appella S.A.
“The exclusive watches have been designed keeping in mind the sentimental and emotional reason behind its creation and bears an aesthetic elegance that sets it apart as a timeless product. Each watch from this collection has been certified by the Swiss Office for Precious Metal Control. Part of the proceeds from the sale of this collection will be donated to the Al Noor Foundation as a humanitarian contribution towards a noble cause, reflective of the company’s mission to share and care with the society, as part of its corporate social responsibility to produce an overall positive impact on society, and a continuing commitment by the company to behave ethically and contribute to economic development,” said Mr. A. S. Jamal, Chairman of Appella International.
