Titan: Inside India’s Most Successful Consumer Brand
When Titan Company Limited launched its quartz watches some 30 years ago, the founders – a merry bunch of Tata employees who started out simply wanting to do something different could not have foreseen just how completely they would capture the imagination of Indian consumers in the post-liberalization era of the 1990s.
The brand they created at first against tremendous odds and restrictive norms injected freshness into the market and in retail spaces through its cutting-edge marketing strategy and empathetic advertising. Not only did the new watchmakers on the block transform watches from being utilitarian objects to fashion statements, but it also systematically ventured into areas untapped by corporate entities with its brands Titan, Tanishq, Titan Eyeplus, Skinn and Taneira, and established itself as a winner across multiple verticals.
