It’s a new month, so of course that means it is time for us to cycle in yet another watch for you to have a chance to win. This time around, it’s a watch we reviewed a few years back, but that certainly does not diminish the beauty of the mother-of-pearl dial. Read on for how to enter in the giveaway for a Klaus Kobec Taj Mahal.
What really struck me about the Klaus Kobec Taj Mahal was the use of mother-of-pearl, and, in this case, in a rather dark tone. While I have been more recently enamored of a lighter color MOP accent, here, the black MOP gives a rather intriguing effect. As I noted in the review this gives the appearance of a night sky. This, in turn, works rather well with the silhouette skyline of the Taj Majal that appears on the lower portion of the dial.
It also works quite well with the gold tone of the 42mm case. You may not be overly excited about the quartz movement contained in said case, but I think it works just fine for a dress watch you are likely to be pulling out on occasion – just set the time, pop the stem back in, and you’re ready to go. Is this the watch for everyone? No, likely not. As our own Victor pointed out, some may have an issue with a watch that depicts what is – basically – a mausoleum on the dial. For those not turned away by that, you have a simple process to enter in this month’s giveaway:
- Comment below on what your favorite watch with a mother-of-pearl dial is
- Go over to the contest page and complete your entry
Be sure to do both parts, as we are matching the email addresses from steps 1 and 2 to completely validate the entry when we are selecting a winner. Also of note, this contest is open to residents of North America (to contain shipping costs).
These giveaways are our way of saying “thank you” for being loyal readers. Good luck!

Jaquet Droz Twelve Cities Aventurine watch
Twenty years ago my bride and I were in San Antonio and noticed a ladies Citizen Eco-Drive with MOP. She immediately fell in love with it; and still wears it. I think it is the best MOP ladies watch I’ve seen.
I do like the dark effect of the dial on the KKTM.
Rolex Day Date President MOP
I saw a Seiko MOP many years ago. All I know it was a dress watch, not sure which model.
I’ve been eyeballing the Seiko Velatura Chrono with m.o.p. dial for a while now.
I like Seiko very much, so Seiko MOP velatura
Patek Philippe Calatrava 4959J with a mother of pearl diamond dial.
My fav is Klaus Kobec Taj Mahal 🙂
Rado hyperchrome mother of pearl- womens watch
I don’t generally like mother of pearl on watches. It looks good on other items such as small boxes or jewelry, but it seems to clutter a watch face and I prefer watches with a cleaner look. This watch, though, the Klaus Kobec Taj Mahal, is a different animal altogether because the dark MOP blends in so nicely and creates a richer, deeper beauty. And I’m not at all deterred by a mausoleum on the dial — after all, the Taj Mahal was erected not just to contain a body, but to honor a love and that’s a suitable topic for ANY watch.
Citizen Signature Collection Eco-Drive. A gift for my wife with MOP and diamonds.
Another vote for the Patek Philippe Calatrava 4959J – just stunning!
Not too thick, not too thin, just a classic looking watch.
my favorite watch with a mother-of-pearl dial is Waltham SW39 which was featured at:
I think I’d have to go with the Cartier Men’s Ballon Bleu de Cartie Mother-Of-Pearl Dial (W6920033.) I know it’s on the small side, but it’s simplicity and uniqueness make of for it.
To me I think the best looking watch with mother of pearl is the Omega Seamaster as i like the vibrant and amazing combination of the colours of the orange and mother of pearl
I’m not very well versed in watches…so I’m going to have to say this one…the Klaus Kobec Taj Mahal.
