Swiss watch manufacturer, Louis Moinet, unveiled a timepiece watch inspired by the UAE’s founding President Sheikh Zayed’s mosque.

This comes in celebrations of Sheikh Zayed’s hundredth year since he was born. The timepiece took three years to manufacture, and showcases a miniature painting of the late president’s Grand Mosque on the mother of pearl dial, according to Watch Time Middle East.
