Given how the stress of modern life has made people yearn for deep comfortable sleep, the Philip Stein sleep bracelets have undoubtedly taken the hospitality and spa industry up by storm.The sophisticated wellness accessories, provide 24-hour wellness to the wearer and they are immensely popular with UAE customers who are progressively spending more on their own wellbeing than on traditional luxury goods.

As far back as the 1920s it was understood the human brain displayed electrical activity. In 1952 German physicist Winfried Otto Schumann discovered the Earth has a pulse i.e. a measurable frequency (7.83 Hz) surrounding life – identical to that of the human brain. Philip Stein’s response was to develop a medium through which existing natural frequencies could be harnessed and delivered directly to the wearer. The result is what has come to be known as ‘the feel-good watch’: a luxury wristwatch fusing Swiss craftsmanship with Philip Stein’s proprietary Natural Frequency Technology.

Since the launch of Philip Stein’s first stand-alone store in the iconic Burj Al Arab, sales figures for the brand have considerably risen- especially in hospitality retail outlets and spas. The brand is currently partnered with leading hotels and spas in the UAE, including- Burj Al Arab, Zabeel Saray, Rixos the Palm, Anantara Palm Jumeirah, Eastern Mangroves Abu Dhabi, Address Dubai Mall, Jumeirah Etihad Towers, and Anantara Desert Resort Spa, Abu Dhabi, to name a few.  

Philip Stein’s stylish wellness products, ‘Horizon Day Bracelet’, ‘Sleep Bracelet’, and ‘Horizon Sports Bracelet’ provide a 24-hour wellness experience, all of which incorporate a Natural Frequency Technology disc designed to channel natural, beneficial frequencies towards the wearer’s body to help counter the potentially harmful exposure of modern technology.

The brand’s iconic watches and bracelets are designed to help wearers feel more focused and less stressed, while the immensely popular Sleep Bracelets encourage optimal sleep patterns so users awake feeling refreshed and alert. Having sufficient sleep is thought to aid memory and problem-solving as well as promote a balanced appetite and help regulate the body’s natural functions. Each wellness timepiece incorporates a discrete disc which is worn next to the skin and acts as a tuned antenna designed to reduce stress, promote concentration and encourage peak performance and overall wellbeing. 

Dubai-based Precious Times DMCC has the sole selling distributorship rights for the Philip Stein brand in 41 countries – including the Middle East. Commenting on the increasingly popular 24-hour wellness experience from Philip Stein, Dambir Chadha, chairman of Precious Times said: “The demand for Philip Stein products in hotels and spas has risen drastically. Hotel properties have been aggressively approaching us to place Philip Stein goods in their respective retail. From being placed in only 1 hotel 8 months ago, we are now in a total of 15 of the most prestigious properties in the UAE, and this number is increasing.”
