TimeVallée, the luxury multi-brand watch boutique, recently opened its first Middle Eastern location within Doha International Airpot’s Duty-Free Section.
Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Switzerland, TimeVallée offers access to prestigious watch brands and creates an inviting space for watch lovers to experience the world of watchmaking. With over 34 boutiques worldwide, TimeVallée has embarked on an ambitious international expansion plan. The Qatar boutique is their first in our region.
Qatar Duty-Free, a subsidiary of Qatar Airways located within Doha’s Hamad International Airport, was named the World’s Best Airport by Skytrax in 2022. Occupying over 50,000 square meters, Qatar Duty-Free is home to over 130 retail outlets and some 40 Food & Beverage outlets.
Qatar Duty-Free, given its location within Doha Airpot, offers its retailers access to more than 70 million passengers annually. These figures are projected to grow significantly in the coming years, and the recent expansion project has increased retail space by over 15,000 square meters.
The TimeVallée boutique at Qatar Duty-Free opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony for VIP guests, which included Qatar Airways Group’s CEO, Akbar Al Baker, Hamad International Airport’s COO, Badr Al Meer, Qatar Duty-Free’s Vice President, Thabet Musleh, and TimeVallée CEO, Michael Guenoun.
