MUMBAI : FOSSIL along with brand ambassador Varun Dhawan launch an all-new limited-edition watch. Each timepiece is individually numbered and comes encased in an exclusive packaging with Varun’s signature and a personalised message for his fans.
Blending Fossil’s timeless style with Varun’s personality into a dynamic design, this watch features Fossil’s bestselling Machine watch case with a sleek black dial with a polish of Varun’s signature red on the three hands that display the hour, minute and second. Varun’s initial and birthdate are inscribed on the dial, making this exclusive watch that much more personal. The watch case comes with two premium strap choices for additional versatility– a black steel bracelet and black silicone strap with croc pattern and red accents.
This limited edition watch aligns itself with Fossil’s curator series – a collaborative collection of watches fueled by a creative class of artists and innovation icons.
Varun Dhawan, Celebrity Brand Ambassador commented, “Fossil is an iconic brand that has always celebrated creativity, authenticity and optimism, everything that I swear by when it comes to my style. I am honored to be associated with a brand that is so close to me, to create a watch that truly personifies what I believe in – something new, exciting, and affordably classy. I hope everyone loves it as much as we do.”
Talking about the launch, Johnson Verghese, Managing Director, Fossil Group India, said, “We are proud to announce the launch of Varun’s watch – a one of its kind curation. This elegant timepiece embodies Fossil’s ethos, rightly blended with Varun’s personal style. With our brand spirit translating perfectly into a distinctive design that is in line with the current style trends, we are certain that this limited edition watch would be loved by Fossil’s and Varun’s fans. ”
Taking forward this personalized initiative for Varun Dhawan and reflecting his compassionate side, Fossil has collaborated with the NGO Magic Bus, whose efforts are centered on helping children develop the necessary life skills to lead a brighter future. The timepiece is the latest iteration of Fossil’s commitment to community impact: Make Time for Good.
