About Equals Money

Why Dubai stands out for Omega watch purchases

Dubai's luxury shopping scene is unrivalled, especially when it comes to purchasing luxury watch brands, such as Omega. The city offers distinct advantages that make it an attractive destination for watch enthusiasts from the UK.

1. Extensive collection

Dubai's authorised Omega boutiques and luxury watch retailers present an extensive range of Omega watches, including the latest models and exclusive editions not readily available elsewhere.

2. Competitive pricing

Thanks to Dubai's tax-free shopping policy, Omega watches can be more cost-effective here than in the UK. This pricing advantage, coupled with duty-free benefits, can lead to significant savings on your investment.

3. Authenticity assurance

Buying from official retailers in Dubai ensures that you are purchasing an authentic Omega watch, complete with a full international warranty for peace of mind.

Navigating your Omega watch purchase in Dubai

Here are some key considerations to ensure a seamless purchase experience:

  • Select authorised dealers: To guarantee authenticity, purchase your Omega watch from official boutiques or certified retailers in Dubai.
  • Understand warranty coverage: Familiarise yourself with Omega's international warranty to understand the protection and services available.
  • Monitor exchange rates: Keeping an eye on the GBP to AED exchange rate is crucial to grasp the real cost of your purchase in sterling.
