New Start-Up Watch Brand Pushes The Limits Of Skeleton Watch Design

Share Article

Premium watch brand, WQT, has created luxury watches at an attainable price that celebrate self-expression over status symbols.

Either you can buy a generic-looking quartz watch at $150 or a Swiss watch in the thousands. There is not much in the middle, and that is why we believe that WQT Watches will play such a crucial role in filling this void.

WQT, Dubai-Los Angeles based watch startup was founded on the idea that your watch should be a reflection of your unique identity. Founders Umar Bajwa and Youssef Ayoub belong to a new generation of watch designers who value self-expression over generic status symbols. They undertook an ambitious journey to design a premium watch composed of carefully crafted excellence and stylish ingenuity with an attainable and attractive price point.

Their thoughtfulness and dedication are reflected in one-of-a-kind elements found in the watches. “It was important to us to create a watch that you would not be able to find anywhere else, and that pushed the limits of what’s possible. After extensive research, we confirmed that rarely do you see a skeleton watch so exposed with such a thin case. We delivered a fresh design to the watch market. We are also very mindful of the ease of wear each owner would have. We intentionally designed the weight and used butterfly clasps so that the watch remains very comfortable to wear all day.” said WQT Watches co-founder Youssef Ayoub.

The Eclipse Collection debuted February 17, 2020, with four skeleton watches: Eclipse N.01, Eclipse R.02, Eclipse N.03, and R.04. Notable features include a custom brushed mechanical movement, sapphire glass, 316L stainless steel, IPL coating, and Italian leather. Each watch weaves in storytelling through hidden crescents and a custom Arabic font.

WQT Watches is filling a niche in the market by designing a watch for our multicultural world that is crafted from premium components – at an attractive price point. The watches were inspired by the founder’s unique own multicultural experiences.

“We truly celebrate luxury from the East and the West. Our watches, like our identities, are layered. The custom Arabic numerals, the hidden crescents, and the elegant curves all pay homage to the past. We refined every element, even the packaging, to give you an experience only associated with Swiss brands. Either you can buy a generic-looking quartz watch at $150 or a Swiss watch in the thousands. There is not much in the middle, and that is why we believe that WQT Watches will play such a crucial role in filling this void,” said Umar F. Bajwa, co-founder at WQT Watches.
