Commenting on the launch Mr. Trevor Kuna, Global CEO of QNet said, “We are committed to developing a range of high-end luxury watches for India, given the success with our Swiss Watches earlier. We wanted to offer our Indian customers a high end timepiece with a more affordable price point compared to imported Swiss watches. The response to our Chairos range of watches has been very encouraging. These watches use similar components that our Swiss Watch range does, with the only difference being that they are assembled in India.”
Elaborating on the new watches Mr. Kuna added, “A watch is more than just a device that tells time. It’s a statement that reflects the wearer’s personality and moods. The Chairos Essenza was developed for the modern Indian woman, a combination of grace and strength. The Chairos Amore is the perfect luxury watch for couples who treasure their time together, while still expressing their individuality.
