    Favre Leuba interesting Mecca dial

    Saw this watch a while back and thought id share it here. Its a Favre leuba with the dial showing the Khana Kaaba housed inside the Masjid al Haram. The kaaba is the holiest place in Islam and muslims worldwide face towards the Kaaba while praying.

    Anyone seen one like this before or have more info?

    That's really unusual and striking.
    Is the image done in relief or flat?
    Thanks for sharing,

    That is interesting. Likely custom made dial/case sold on site to those on the Haj?

    Did not actually see it in person. The guy who offered it said the features on the dial were raised. The minarets definitely look raised. Don't know if its custom made or original but it looks like a cool unique watch

    Interesting watch. I would say the dial was custom made since the perspective is way off.

    Kind regards

    I think I bought the watch pictured above for 40 USD. All the features on the dial are raised . The case is 20 microns gold plated and has plexi glass. The watch keeps accurate time and everybody who sees it admires it.

    I am quick at grabbing such unique watches. Saw your adds for selling quite a few watches including the one (Seiko Grand Quartz) I probably sold to you. Good luck with the sale
