To commemorate a milestone event, where Kapoor Watch Company celebrates 55 years of being an institution in India, as well as to salute India celebrating a landmark 75 years of Independence, Kapoor Watch Company has tied up with its long-time partner, Franck Muller to exclusively retail 150 pieces, first India limited edition watch collection.
With a green leather strap, these detailed timepieces come in two options, with 100 pieces of the steel and gold edition, and 50 pieces of the rose gold edition. Each of the uniquely numbered 150 pieces has the map of India etched onto the back of the watch case.
Erol Baliyan, MD of Franck Muller Middle East, Africa, and India shared, “India is an inspirational country that has 29 states and a very rich and diverse culture. With over 22 spoken languages, it is a place where people live and celebrate each other's festivals and diversity every day. We couldn't have chosen a better year than this beautiful country's 75th year of independence to announce India's first Franck Muller limited-edition timepieces. Etched with India's map on the back of each case, these watches connect with the heart and soul of everyone who lives here.” These finely crafted luxury timepieces are priced at Rs 11,70,000 and Rs 18,72,000 respectively.
The entire evening was an ode to ‘haute horology’, where everything from the red carpet with the ‘crazy hours’, reflecting another popular collection from Franck Muller to the uniforms of the bar staff, were kept in sync with the event collective of Kapoor Watch Company, that was held at the DLF Emporio mall, New Delhi.
Pratiek Kapoor, Spokesperson, and one-half of the third generation family legacy that is Kapoor Watch Company, who heads the Marketing and Operations, was very pleased with the event turnout. “We are happy with the response we’ve received for the watches in just a brief amount of time, and anticipate that this limited-edition collection will be sold out in two weeks. We look forward to many such collaborations in the future,” he said
Echoing his sentiments, Raunaq Kapoor, who looks after Sales and New Business Development, and comprises the other half of the third-gen legacy, said, “we are touched to be able to celebrate this momentous year with a brand and patrons with whom we’ve had such long-standing associations. The success of this launch shows us that this is only a small part of the long roadmap ahead of us.”
With the launch event flowing smoothly like clockwork, the soiree was a sterling success. The collection is exclusively retailed at the Kapoor Watch Company stores.
