The Raajsan Watch Company opens a new store, with high-end watches and cuckoo clocks
From a small store in Ratan Bazaar to a swank outlet in Purasawalkam, Raajsan Watch Company brings some pizzazz to North Madras. The 35-plus-year outlet has evolved over the years to accommodate over 50 brands of watches and 20 brands of clocks. Their newly-inaugurated 3,500 sq ft showroom is the single largest space retailing specialty timepieces in the city.
From the ubiquitous Swatch to the more elusive Rado Cermaica, expect to find a range that will cater to most budgets and occasions. Proprietor Shradha Malvania is a connoisseur and has hand-picked each one on display. a�?I follow local buying trends and cross reference with what is hot in the national and international markets,a�? says Malvania, who has over 50 watches in her private collection, and plans to get an Omega Seamaster next. a�?Omega is the one brand we dona��t have, but we are working towards getting it.a�?
If the curated selection does not appeal to you, Malvania promises to source any model from any retailed brand within two working days. a�?Each counter is equipped with a touch-screen display which shows you the features and prices of all the watches in the catalogue. We will special order anything at no extra cost,a�? she explains.Rs.400 onwards. Details: 26422976
