Maldives watch club

Hello watch enthusiasts , I am based in Maldives , a small country in Indian Ocean .
I am working as an urologist in ADK hospital , Male city .

If any of you watch enthusiasts are from Maldives

or expatriates working in numerous resorts

or any one who frequently visits Maldives

let's bond and make a group, we can share our passion and love for horology, and it's a great help for beginners like me to interact with you all .

I am not sure I can write my contact and mail here ? ( Moderators help ! )



Thank you

It truly is the best place on earth and I will be going back soon.

In the Maldives you'll likely be stuck on one single resort island, which you will get to directly from the airport without going to the main island of Male. On the offchance that you get bored on your honeymoon, or feel like leaving your resort, you could perhaps get a boat to Male (depending how far away you are) but I don't believe it has too many interesting watch shops.

Wow, what an awesome place to live. Just curious, are there Rolex ADs in Maldives or must you travel to another country to get your Rolex’s?

Closest Rolex ADs to Maldives are in Sri Lanka.
