Promoted: Time Gallery by Time Keeper Now Open

Time Keeper, the extremely popular watch platform, has opened their first store called Time Gallery, but it’s not your everyday regular watch store. Time Gallery is a way for them to share unique brands and watches with those who appreciate the mechanical timepieces.

The store is located in Salhiya Complex and they’re authorized dealers for a number of interesting watch brands including Behrens, ClockClock24, Gerald Charles, Lebois & Co, Nivada Grenchen, Graham, Ikepod, Raketa and more. They also WOLF watch winders and boxes, leather and rubber straps for different watch brands, as well as watch related books.

The store is pretty cool looking with all the watches out on display. My favorite two brands were probably Lebois & Co and Raketa. Lebois & Co had a vintage look since the watches were all based on their vintage line. Raketa on the other hand is a Russian brand with their own in-house movements and have a very interesting and unique look to them. Also the fact they carry the brand WOLF is great since when I wanted one of their boxes, I was forced to buy it online because there was no local dealer back then.

If you’re looking for a new unique watch or if you’re just into watches and want to check out something new, Time Gallery is located on M1 of Salhiya Complex. Just head up the escalator and walk straight, they’ll be on the right hand side. @timegallerykw

Promoted: Buy Supplements Worth 25KD & Get 25KD Back!

Provin (@weareprovin) is a local brand that provides customers with access to high quality supplements and herbal remedies.

They carry around 100 brands including some really popular ones like NOW, Goli, Optimum Nutrition, Sundown and many more. If you aren’t sure what supplements you might need, not an issue, they have a short quiz you can take. I took the quiz and chose “Brain” as my health goal since I have a horrible memory and after answering a few questions, the app recommended three different supplements that could help me out. They make finding the right supplements for you really easy.

Because Provin is an online store, they’re also able to keep their prices very competitive. If you compare their prices to international platforms, they are generally similar once you factor in shipping and customs, but with the added benefit of having your supplements delivered in under 3 hours.

Right now Provin have a crazy Hala Cashback offer going on for the holidays. If you spend 25KD in their store, you get 25KD back as credit in your wallet, simple as that! Spend 25, get 25 back plus they will also deliver for free during this period.

This is a limited time offer so head over to their website provin.me

Promoted: Autocapital Opens New Larger Location

I posted about Autocapital last year, they’re a very easy to deal with one-stop shop that buys, sells, leases and rents cars. They’ve been around since 2018 and have been growing rapidly.

Last week, Autocapital opened their brand new showroom in Al-Rai, in place of where the Aston Martin dealership used to be. The new showroom is huge encompassing three floors with lots of cars on display.

I passed by the showroom to check it out for this post and I ended up getting a full tour of the facility, including the VIP area where they display supercars for sale that their owners prefer to keep private.

They had a pretty nice collection of cars on display, ranging from electric vehicles for lease, like Teslas and the Mercedes EQS, to cars for sale, like the Yaris GR, a classic 1948 Chevrolet Fleetline, and rare cars like the Hummer H1 Alpha. There’s a car for everyone and even motorbikes available for lease.

With high-interest rates and the cost of cars getting higher, lease-to-own or buying used makes a lot more sense nowadays. To find out more about Autocapital, visit their location in Al Rai, near The Avenues, autocapitalkw.com or their Instagram @autocapital.kuwait

The new location is located inside the brand new Safat Al-Mubarakiya Mall, inside Souq Al-Mubarakiya.

Promoted: Moon Laundry Premium Service

Moon Laundry is a premium laundry service that has been open since 2020 and is one of the few I tend to recognize because of their cool branding. Although they refer to themselves as a premium laundry, their prices are actually very reasonable. Their use of the word premium is because of the higher level of care and attention they give to each garment compared to your run of the mill laundry. More importantly, they also have an app.

The app is my favorite thing about Moon Laundry since it makes requesting a laundry pick up very easy. The app even has an option to let the Moon Laundry team count and sort your items after pick up so you don’t have to do it if you don’t want to.

After receiving your laundry the first thing they do is conduct a thorough inspection for stains, damages, and special care requirements. If anything is found before a wash, they will contact you and let you know. They will also record any specific instruction or preferences you might have given them when requesting a laundry pick up.

The next step would be to sort your clothes based on color, fabric type, and care instructions. Any stains will be carefully pre-treated before starting the washing process. Once the items are washed, dried and ironed, they will go through one more quality control check before getting packed and sent out to be delivered to you.

If you use laundry services often then you might find their packages interesting since they offer more value at a lesser price. They also work with urgent requests so in case you forgot to wash or iron something you need urgently, they can accommodate you.

Finally, in addition to the regular laundry services, Moon Laundry also offers the service of cleaning handbags and shoes/sneakers.

If you’re looking for a convenient and reliable laundry service, then have a look at Moon Laundry. For a link to the app and more information including special offers, visit @trymoon.app

Promoted: AAB World Certified Used Cameras & Lenses

AAB World, my favorite photography store, recently opened a new store called AAB World Marketplace that specializes in selling certified used cameras and lenses, new old stock products, as well as open box items.

I passed by the store last week to check it out and they had a pretty large selection of cameras and items on display. The used cameras and lenses are carefully selected and rigorously tested before being put up for sale. They also have little notecards in front of them with a description on the condition which I thought was pretty cool.

Their “new old stock” products on the other hand are brand-new items that have just been in their inventory for an extended period of time. They’re being sold at discounted prices and could be very useful for people with old cameras or drones.

Finally, their open box items are products that were part of their showroom displays or maybe items that had their packaging damaged during shipping or customs checks.

With the opening of their marketplace shop, AAB World now also have a permanent trade-in service. You can bring your photography gear and their team will evaluate your items on the spot. If you agree to the evaluation, they will offer you a voucher which you can redeem at their stores.

The trade-in items are what they end up offering as “Certified Used” at the AAB World Marketplace and each item goes through rigorous checks and comes with a 3-month warranty.

The AAB World Marketplace is open daily from 10AM to 10PM except on Fridays when they open at 2PM. They’re located in the basement of Symphony Mall in Salmiya in place of where their old service center was. Their Instagram account is @marketplace.aab

Promoted: Elevation Elevated by Farelo Studio

You might have noticed that Elevation Burger recently went through a major rebrand. The Elevation identity was given a much needed facelift by Farelo Studio, a design studio based in Portugal. The new look is not only cleaner visually, but also environmentally.

Pedro Farelo, the creative director of Farelo Studio, explains that the central idea was to take the Elevation Burger motto “ingredients matter” and expand it to “everything matters” encompassing health, the environment, and the community. This is because being a market leader comes with a responsibility of setting high standards for everyone else, which is why the new Elevation Burger packaging uses recycled paper, while the new minimalistic design helps reduce ink usage by up to 95%.

Farelo Studio aren’t strangers when it comes to Kuwait based projects, their first client in Kuwait was back in 2015 and since then have helped create several other local brands. If you’re looking for a talented and creative design studio with local experience, reach out to Farelo by sending them an email to [email protected] or check out their website farelo.com
