Wristwatches...

The watch industry should have been dead long ago, don't you think? Especially Indian watches? Once upon a time, we had HMT, who made watches like they made tractors and machine tools or was it the other way round? Then cheap imports and battery power made chimti watches a thing of the past. And then, watches (and cameras) became return gifts or freebies. Since mobile phones displayed time, who needed watches? So, while there are a thousand reasons for people to stop buying and wearing watches - watches still sell well. And this is the background to the context of my visit to a Titan store. (The Titan story, here )

I am fan of Titans designs, see here and here...

Spotted a design that really stood out. The Raga chocolat (why does it have to show up only with a particular Rao on search results?) Brown as chocolate on steel or vice versa, the watch looked really cool. So, if you are a woman looking for a watch that stands out, check out the Raga Chocolat...

Hi, yes Ecophilo you are right, really watches industry didn't do much long time ago, Indian watches are good and nice in shape. I bought some Italian Watches, they are elegant and awesome but they are expensive too. I like Titan too, your titan designs are really awesome. I want to buy. Suggestions are welcome
