Zakaa was founded in 2011 by Deremi Ajidahun. Zakaa is a Hole19 Group company, where Deremi is also CEO. With the Zakaa boutiques, Deremi Ajidahun, a keen watch collector and Haute Horlogerie enthusiast, as well as a regular visitor of Baselworld, has created a network that gives all Nigerian collectors the opportunity to buy their watches locally. This means buyers have access to a quicker and simpler process, as well personalised advice from Zakaa’s dedicated teams.
This approach also gives Zakaa’s partner brands (Hublot, Bvlgari, Ulysse Nardin, TAG Heuer, Louis Moinet, Rebellion, Louis Erard, etc.) the opportunity to refine the offering of each boutique, developing a range that is carefully curated and calibrated for its clientele, who can also place individual orders if they wish.
Zakaa is present in a number of luxury hotel complexes, where it has found favour with foreign visitors, who appreciate the unusual and sometimes unique items it offers. The Zakaa network also provides collectors with an array of basic service options – battery replacement, new straps, adjustments – to ensure the products it sells can be properly maintained. For more serious servicing requirements and customisations, Zakaa can rely on its close relationship with the major Swiss watchmakers to ensure the work is carried out to the highest standard and under optimum conditions.+ Read the rest
