This skyline just gets better and better…

Dubai will soon be home to stunning new residential tower. But it isn’t just a regular tower, it will be the city’s first residential clock tower. However, since this is Dubai, it is going a step further to making it the tallest residential clock tower in the world.

The collaboration is between Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Franck Muller and UAE’s premium real estate developer, London Gate. The Franck Muller Aeternitas Tower will be Franck Muller’s first venture into the world of real estate, which makes it all the more important to the watch manufacturer.

Here’s what we know about the tower

The Franck Muller Aeternitas Tower will stand at a height of 450 meters adding another jewel to the (already) gorgeous Dubai skyline. It it set to the built in the Dubai Marina. From the renderings of the clocktower shared (see above), one can see the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah in the background.

According to a post on Franck Muller’s website, ‘The luxurious residential project will be officially unveiled in January 2024 and residents can expect a handover by 2026.’

We are keeping our eye on the skyline and for any updates on this project, so stay tuned.

The Deira Clocktower: a timeless classic…

If you look at old pictures of Dubai, a black and white photo of Deira Clocktower would have been one of the most iconic pictures you would have come across.

In May 2023, the historic landmark underwent a 10 million dirham restoration which included revamping the water fountain design, the addition of hard floors with greenery and more.

A very notable change is the clock face managed by Omega. The time has been managed by the Swiss Luxury Watch manufacturer ever since 2010 and now, its classic red logo is more larger and visible than before.
