Time Zone brings new brands of substance and style for Malaysian watch lovers.
It used to be a Seiko or Casio watch that sparks the beginning of one’s journey in collecting timepieces, but with the mushrooming of new brands, there are more choices to choose from.
The world of horology is still a time honoured realm. Every couple of years where will be new brands with the right balance of watch-making credibility and style at the same time.
Through the Habib Group, Time Zone has brought new watch brands to Malaysian shores.
“We were more inclined to work with brands whose founders are still directing their growth. The objectives are purer, of course, profit is important, but growth also means spreading the culture and developing the brand value,” said Mirzan Meer, director of Time Zone.
As a distributor of multi-labelled watch brands, these are some of the brands Time Zone has brought to Malaysia.

The founder, William, had years of watch-making experience at luxury watch houses but wanted to make great designs accessible to more people.
