Stunning Roger Dubuis Excalibur Essential timepieces now available in Dubai

Lovers of the stunning Excalibur Essential 36 series for women are in for a treat with exclusive new arrivals at Roger Dubuis’ boutique at Dubai Mall.
These exclusive models exude all the style and sophistication that the Excalibur Essential Automatics are known for, and each of them are head turners in their own way. With their dynamic shapes, sharp edges and striking appearance, the Excalibur Essential 36 Automatic are truly a definite statement of intent and style for the woman of substance.
Simultaneously evoking fire and ice, the sparkling gems reflect and accentuate the cool gleam of the dial with its shimmering sun-brushed finish. This elegant smaller-sized interpretation of the Excalibur, carries the collection’s characteristic fluted bezel and triple lugs, together with the radiating Roman numerals.
The latter are deliciously “interrupted” by an ever-useful small seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, complete with a discreet yet legible date display. The timepieces are equipped with the RD830 calibre featuring a 22K pink gold rotor that may be admired in action through the transparent sapphire crystal case-back and ensures a 48-hour power reserve.
The RDDBEX0588 dazzles with its rose gold case embellished with 48 brilliant diamonds. The brilliant sheen is accentuated by the gleam of the mother of pearl dial which is etched with rose gold indexes with elegant stylized Roman numerals. Brilliantly accessorized with a purple alligator strap, this exquisite timepiece comes with sapphire crystal glass and 18k rose gold and sapphire crystal case back.
The RDDBEX0587 provides a telling contrast between the sparkling sunburst dial etched with slimline Roman numerals in black set on the gleaming mother of pearl dial, all of which is stylishly encapsulated in the 18k pink gold dial. Offset with rose gold bezel and crown, this timepiece is accessorized with a brilliant blue alligator strap.

Careem honors outstanding captains in Riyadh

Careem held the first edition of its Captain’s Excellence Award Ceremony in Riyadh on Saturday. The event, which will be held annually, was the first-of-its-kind in the region and welcomed over 300 top-performing “captains” (Careem drivers) across the Kingdom. 

The captains were awarded based on different criteria such as: Captains with the highest number of trips, highest (customer-given) ratings and longest serving captains. Rewards were also handed out to captain ambassadors, i.e. those with the highest number of referrals and captains that were given a special shoutout on social media by customers for their dedication to their service. Several rewards were handed out along with the grand prize, a brand new car. 

Abdulla Elyas, chief people officer and co-founder of Careem, opened the event with an ode to the captains in attendance, thanking them for their service and commitment in driving impact through meaningful initiatives across the Kingdom. Some of these initiatives included the vaccination campaign in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, which helped more than 100,000 men, women and children across 17 cities get vaccinated in their own homes. Careem also collaborated with Bupa Arabia during Ramadan this year to donate clothes from customers to people in need, where over 180,000 donations were collected. 

Elyas also announced Careem’s partnership with Alwaleed Philanthropies (AP) in delivering the first installment of cars for the empowerment of people with special needs. The foundation, chaired by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, will provide a number of cars over the course of seven years to men and women of the Society for Physically Disabled Adults (Harakia) after being trained.

“Our captains are the lifeblood of our business and we wanted to celebrate these men and women for helping us achieve our mission of simplifying and improving the lives of people in the Kingdom,” Elyas said. 

“We are proud to have 395,000 ‘captainahs’ (female drivers) and captains registered with us to date in Saudi Arabia, providing over 122 million rides. This ceremony is our small way to thank them for their service and reward them for the hard work they put in every day so that people have a safe way to get around. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today” 

Muaaed Al-Saeed, a representative from the Public Transport Authority (PTA), said: “We are excited to have you all; you have overcome each obstacle you were faced with in a short span of time and for that we are extremely proud.” 

He added: “On this occasion, I convey the regards of PTA President Dr. Rumaih Al-Rumaih. The participation of myself and Majed Al-Zahrani, PTA general manager, is proof of our support to all the captains.”
