May 2019, Dubai, United Arab Emirates:
Following the success of the Khaleeji 2018 line, D1 Milano is thrilled to announce the second edition of the collection which isset to launch in June 2019. The Khaleeji 2019 line similar to last year will be a limited-edition collection, featuring only 500 pieces, each individually labelled with a special serial number. Just as the earlier version, the Khaleeji 2019 line too takes inspiration from Arabian architecture in the creation of the timepiece, featuring the iconic Mashrabiya on the back casing, meticulously engraved as well as a blue stone dial which signifies wisdom, induces peaceful sleep and provides mental clarity and awareness.
Creators of the D1 Milano brand looked to nature and architecture for inspiration when designing the all new Khaleeji. The striking blue dial which is only 6mm in thickness was inspired by the Lapis Lazulistone valued for its brilliant blue tone. Mined in Middle East some six thousand years ago, this opaque gemstone was one of the first stones ever to be worn by humans for jewellery.
The exclusive timepiece comes in a stunning stainless-steel case, with a full metal bracelet, completed by a custom-made metallic soleil blue dial with Gold Arabic indexes uniquely made for this edition.
The Khaleeji line took all of three months to come to life following a stringent research and development process to ensure the Middle Eastern traditions and architecture wereheavily incorporated in the design.
The limited- edition line has only 500 pieces and will retail both online as well as physical stores across the region.
