Arafat Mohammad Kabir, a Geneva-based Bangladeshi entrepreneur, founded Kabir Watches & Co some 25 years ago in Switzerland. Kabir Watches retails world-famous, luxurious Swiss watch brands locally and imports the timepieces to Bangladesh also.

Mr Kabir, whose basic background was in the travel and tourism industry, hailed originally from greater Chattogram region. This window-shopper became a passionate mechanical watchmaker in 2015 and specialised in vintage watches.

At a well-known watch, he discovered some Swiss watch brands. He soon realised that the present Bangladeshi market is ready for other quality Swiss brands which are as good as or even better than many existing watch brands.

Mr Kabir thought that new customers would be able to experience the quality of five Swiss watch brands Aerowatch, Mathey-Tissot, Cornavin, Claude Bernard and Richelieu as exclusive distributors for the local market. Moreover, the attractive market prices of these watches range from $100 to $800.

Kabir Watches & Co is organising a three-day B2B Brand Launch event in the first week of December.

Business as well as corporate leaders from Swiss-Bangla Chamber of Commerce, DCC, BIDA, Abul Khair Group, Well Food, Babylon, Radisson Blu, S Alam Group, Pacific Group, Uttara Club, Aman Group and Swiss Embassy will attend the programme.
