Luxury watchmaker Longines inaugurated its latest Indian boutique in the heart of Bengaluru recently as brand ambassador Aishwarya Rai Bachchan graced the occasion with her presence. The brand also took the opportunity to highlight the new models from its Master Collection, featuring a sunray blue dial.

The blue variations in this unisex collection are perfectly in line with the classic and understated spirit of the brand, said a press release. The sunray blue dial shows the hours, minutes and seconds thanks to rhodium-plated hands that stand out subtly. These models are available with stainless steel or an alligator watch strap of the same colour as the dial for total harmony.

“I have been part of the Longines family for an elegant 18 years now, and I continue to feel a sense of pride and honor every time I inaugurate a new boutique from the brand,” said Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the city’s UB Mall.

“This one is special, since it is a first in this beautiful city of Gardens, Bengaluru. I have always felt a sense of home here and have loved visiting this city. I think the mall will provide the brand with the right environment, imperative for growth. Finally, I wish this boutique and Longines all the very best,” she added.
