Could Dubai Clock be emirate’s newest landmark?

 

DUBAI – If Dubai has its oldest clock tower in Deira, a new 100-metre installation may rise in the emirate to become Dubai’s newest time-keeping landmark.

Dubai architect and horologist Amjan Al Hajj is hoping that his latest work will be picked up by an investor who will fund a version that is 100 metres high.

Al Hajj has spent much of his time creating a prototype for the “Dubai Clock”, a 3-metre high glass and steel art piece that beautifully tells time. He hopes that a gigantic, real-life version will be commissioned to become a new Dubai landmark.

For now, his Dubai Clock, which has a 140cm x 140cm base, will be displayed at The Hotel Show at the Dubai World Trade Centre from September 16 to 18.

The design is inspired by Dubai’s sand dunes. It is being sold for Dh300,000. GAD/Expat Media
