We have introduced new brands for customers looking for more choices. This will also reinforce our commitment to providing the world’s best watches and luxury experience in India.”
German watch brand Meistersinger has become synonymous with single-hand watches and a relaxed perception of time. These watches come in classy looks, backed by ultra-modern technological features. While some watches are extremely elegant, others are sporty. Meistersinger watches are available between Rs 52,000-200,000.
Festina is one of the top-selling brands in the midrange watch segment in several European countries, and leads the market in France and Spain. It is recognised by sports-lovers everywhere as a key sponsor of the TOUR-DE-FRANCE, the world famous bicycle race, for nearly 25 years. Synonymous with elegance and functionality and priced between Rs 6,000-24,000, Festina imparts a sporty look through its distinct designs.
Junghans, based in the heart of the famous Black Forest region of Germany, is one of the oldest watch brands, founded in 1861. Each watch is produced with great attention to detail, technological expertise and high standards of design and quality. The collection comprises charismatic timepieces.
Junghans had set new standards in 1990 with the invention of the radio-controlled wristwatch – a technology that is still used today in combination with environmentally-friendly solar power. Priced at Rs 35,000-175,000, Junghans offers a wide variety of technology in its watches.
