Founded in 2011, Momentum was born from Tariq Malik's profound passion for exceptional timepieces and the unwavering conviction of his dedicated partners, Anas Halabi, Adam Roan and Dr. Hamid Haqparwar, that it was time to make a dent in the Dubai market, where the real watch lover community did not have a home yet. Our journey began with a specialization in vintage Rolex watches, where we curated an extensive collection of timeless and sought-after Rolex models. As time passed, our expertise focused on the rarest and most iconic Rolex Day-Date specimens, solidifying Momentum's position as one of the world's premier Rolex Day-Date specialists.

While Day-Dates continue to hold a special place in our collection, we have broadened our horizons to encompass a wide range of iconic Rolex timepieces, including Submariners, GMTs, Daytonas, and Datejusts. Additionally, our curated selection features vintage treasures from timeless brands like Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Cartier, Omega, and more.

Based in the prestigious Dubai International Financial Center, Momentum operates globally, offering a comprehensive ecosystem dedicated to vintage watches, associated services, and an array of accessories and collectibles.

Our strong commitment is all about creating trust, building open relationships, and delivering top-notch service quality without compromise.

“Every watch tells a story. What's yours?”
