Dubai: A newly married woman is demanding a divorce from her husband after discovering the stylish Dh700,000-worth Chopard watch she received as dowry was fake.

The Arab woman discovered the truth when she took her watch for repair and was told it was not genuine.

The couple, who have been married for less than six months, had a heated argument that ended with the woman seeking a divorce before the Dubai Sharia Court.

Sources told Gulf News the wife was demanding the real value of the Chopard watch be paid to her as compensation.

“The man paid his wife Dh700,000-worth of watch as dowry... five to six months into their marriage, the watch broke and the woman discovered that her husband had cheated her by presenting her a fake Chopard when she went to fix it,” said the source.

The trial continues.
