Virat Kohli walked on the ramp in the Capital on Wednesday evening in the company of sports stars to launch a special edition watch – Tissot Chrono XL Classic Virat Kohli 3018 line.
Golfer Aadil Bedi, F3 racer Jehan Daruvala, tennis player Karman Kaur Thandi, boxers Manoj Kumar and Pinky Jangra, squash player Sachika Kumar Ingale, basketballer Satnam Singh and swimmer Shivani Kataria had joined the iconic cricketer and India’s biggest brand icon to launch the Tissot Chrono XL Classic Virat Kohli 3018 line.
Kohli presented all these athletes, all part of the Virat Kohli Foundation, with the special edition watch.
The Tissot Chrono XL Classic edited especially for Virat Kohli embodies a unique set of customizations that personify the Tissot Ambassador. Known as the Tissot Chrono XL Classic Virat Kohli 2018, the watch features his navy blue logo engraved on its white silk-printed caseback and a navy blue leather strap enhances the sporty aesthetics of this special edition.
The stopwatch number 20 is changed by 18 and stands out in red, representing Virat Kohli’s number and the color of the swiss flag. This piece is limited to 3018 only: 18 relates to Virat Kohli’s Indian Team jersey number and the year 2018 is the year during which he will celebrate his 30th birthday. Therefore, the number of units produced is 3018.
François Thiebaud, Tissot President SA, sent a congratulatory message to Virat from Le Locle, Switzerland. He said, “This is the first time we have launched a special edition for a cricketer and I feel extremely proud since it is for Virat, who has excelled in every genre of the sport and has aced innumerable records.”
“I’m thrilled to launch a personalized Tissot Chrono XL Classic edition. My three years of association with Tissot have been a wonderful journey. I was totally involved in the designing of this line and I hope you all like it as much as we do,” said Virat Kohli.
The watch will be in stores from October 2018 onwards.
