OUR HISTORY

THE BEGINNING OF 19TH CENTURY

Palestina black and white

 Yafa, Palestine

The beginning of CONSTANTLY traces back to the beginning of the 19th century.

In the workshop of a watchmaker in Yafa, Palestine, a mother of three children is about to make an agreement with a relative watchmaker to teach her eldest son named Subhi Aldabbagh as an apprentice.

This day marks the beginning of a big family tradition. The agreement was about the daily exchange of a lunchbox for teaching him. Day in and day out, he continued to learn, until he had mastered all the secrets of watchmaking.

A LEGACY IN TIME: THE WATCHMAKING HERITAGE OF MY GRANDFATHER

Grandfather the watchmaker 3

Subhi Al-Dabbagh I

The story was passed down by the first-generation watchmaker, Subhi Aldabbagh I, who as a young man began to learn all the mysteries of  watchmaking from his relative.

He started his own business in 1940 during the troubled times of the Second World War.

Terrible years had come suddenly but with bravery and high ambitions he went through all the challenges. It was a long and tough road which he was able to conquer.

It was difficult for him to fight against life's downturns. In 1948 during the Nakba, the military arm of the Zionist movement expelled Palestinians from their homes and lands. Suddenly he lost everything, his workshop was destroyed. He was forced to flee his native country with his family, carrying a dream of one day returning. One day the palestinian people got a promise to return to their homeland, but this promise has never been fulfilled. After an almost unbearable episode of his life, he struggled against new constant challenges. He had a big passion for watches. He fastened a board to a belt, using it as a table, to walk around and repair watches in the camp where he lived for a while after fleeing. Soon he could again stay on his own feet and make the impossible possible.

Driven by nature, with his mind engrossed in dreams of a bright future and his hands at the watchmaker's table, my grandfather continued to express his passion for watches. Despite all the challenges, he did not give up, and over the years he gained huge experience. As a result, he made his name and became a successful and renowned watchmaker.

INHERITING PRECISION: MY FATHER THE SECOND-GENERATION WATCHMAKER

Father the watchmaker 3

Ali Al-Dabbagh

The dream of creating exceptional timepieces will continue to be passed down to future generations, along with the accumulated knowledge and experience of those who came before. My father and his brother inherited the knowledge passed on to them by their father, and in turn, my father imparted his expertise to me.

TIMELESS TRADITIONS: CONTINUING THE FAMILY LEGACY IN WATCHMAKING

Constantly watch

Subhi Al-Dabbagh II

As a team, we worked extensively with renowned luxury brands, including Audemars Piguet, Rolex, Patek Philippe, Omega, and more. Out of all these brands, Patek Philippe stood out as my absolute favorite. It was while admiring their exquisite timepieces that my appreciation for refined style and exceptional quality was sparked. I found myself captivated by these watches and dreamed of one day create my own. Even as a child, I spent my free time sketching watches.

It's now my turn to take the lead and be inspired by my family's unwavering spirit and passion for the profession. While the profession itself is a shared interest, we also share a drive to achieve the highest levels of quality in our work.

This shared aspiration led me to pursue a dream: to establish an own watchmaking company. Today, my focus is on designing and producing exclusive timepieces where each design carries a ful meaning. These timepieces go beyond the basics and embodying inspirational concepts in their aesthetics.
