Bestsellers in India

Viraal Rajan – Director, Time Avenue, Mumbai :

Indian consumers have been focusing more on size in recent times. Many of them are upsizing to larger watches. Those who wear a 42 mm want a 44 or a 48 mm model, while those who have a 38 mm watch are ready to take a 41 or 42 mm. In a nutshell, everyone seems to want their watch to ‘grow’.

The bestselling watches over the past few weeks are a Lange & Söhne Time Zone model in pink gold and an Audemars Piguet 41 mm chronograph. I suppose the reason behind Audemars Piguet’s considerable success is that the Royal Oak chronograph is sophisticated, elegant and classy, as well as being suited to all seasons and all occasions. As far as Lange is concerned, this is a real easy-to-wear watch that is perfect for jetsetters and globetrotters.”


Mr Anil Madan – Managing Director, Johnson and Watch Company, New Delhi :

“The watch that has been most successful and sold best over recent months in our store is the Reine de Naples by Breguet. The unique shape and the exceptional design of this magnificent piece explains this success, not to mention the historical touch, since it was the first wristwatch, created for Caroline Murat 200 years ago. Today, the refined and resolutely modern Reine de Naples collection is inspired by this legendary creation. When it comes to Haute Horlogerie, Breguet has a broad range for men and women. There are several lines and designs to choose from. Indians generally prefer a combination of steel and gold, since these models are available at very attractive prices.”



Mr Sandeep Kapoor – Director, Kapoor & Company, New Delhi :

“Indian men seem to like pink gold, so it is not surprising that the Millenary 4101 by Audemars Piguet is proving so successful. Adorned in splendid pink gold finishes, it exudes a Grande Complication aura, yet it is affordably priced. The other model much sought-after by our customers is the Royal Oak 41 mm chronograph  by Audemars Piguet, followed by the new Excalibur 42 mm gold and steel chronograph by Roger Dubuis. Indians obviously particularly like Rolex watches, and the GMT in steel with a blue and black ceramic bezel is also selling fast.”


Mr Ashok Doshi – Managing Director, Helvetica Pvt Ltd

“On the men’s watch side, the Rolex Yacht Master II in steel and pink gold has sold very well. It was the first 44 mm watch offered by Rolex. Women from the south seem to prefer the Breguet Reine de Naples in pink gold. This jewelry watch is equipped with a mechanical movement and features a truly unique oval shape. Classic designs are currently in favor.”
