-The Esquire 100 - Tariq Malik
Tariq Malik bought his first Rolex in 1996. It was the purchase that would trigger something inside him and change his life.
Nearly fifteen years later he would open the UAE’s first vintage watch shop, Momentum in DIFC, helping foster a budding horology obsessed set of clients.
Today Momentum continues to be the go-to place when it comes to vintage and collectable watches in the Middle East, especially vintage Rolex. His clientele is mostly local but the former Esquire columnist sells a lot of watches abroad and usually attends the big shows and auctions internationally.
