The Clock Tower is one of Dubai’s oldest and well known landmarks, built in 1963. The tower provides a significant landmark that still stands as a marker for visitors and residents around what has become one of the busiest areas in the emirate today. It stands at the gateway of Maktoum Bridge, which was the first permanent structure to straddle Dubai Creek, providing a vital link between Bur Dubai and Deira and was connection between northern and southen emirates.


In 1989, ECC was commissioned to reconstruct the iconic and historical landmark, however, it was on condition that no disruption to traffic should take place, nor should there be any threat to public safety.

Through careful engineering, skilled and dedicated teams of both engineers as well as workforce, the Clock Tower reconstruction was completed and ECC received an appreciation letter from Dubai Municipality. All four clock faces were replaced with Omega models, incorporating GPS devices for accuracy. This also removes the need to manually change the hands on the clock.
