A  $190,571 (AED700,000) clock designed by award-winning architect Amjad Al Haj was unveiled at the Hotel Show yesterday as what the designer terms “a symbol and a reminder of the city of Dubai.”

The ‘Dubai Clock’ is designed for indoor or outdoor squares, hotels or parks, and is three metres high with a combination of numerical shapes adorned with numbers arranged on glass surfaces and made of steel.

“The name Dubai Clock has been derived as a symbol and a reminder of the city of Dubai,” a statement said. “It has been stunningly designed as a piece of artistry and features a combination of magnificence and attraction.”

Al Haj said the clock has been designed with the purpose of creating a “unique feel” in hotels in mind.

“While designing the beautiful masterpiece, the only things I imaged was how it would enhance the look and feel of any luxury hotel,” he said.

“It is not wrong when one says that the right timepieces accentuate the architecture, complement the other furnishing and improve the overall guest experience.”
