EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Today, a wristwatch is considered as much of a status symbol as a device to tell time. In an age when cell
phones and digital pagers display tiny quartz clocks, the mechanical wristwatch has slowly become less of an
object of function and more a piece of modern culture. The Indian watch industry began in the year 1961 with

the commissioning of the watch division of HMT. The first watch model manufactured by HMT was the
Janata model in the year 1962. HMT was the leader in the watch market till the Tatas formed Titan Watches
in association with Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation in the year 1987. Titan was the first
company to launch quartz watches in India. The Indian watch market is today of 40 million units, out of
which 60% is in the unorganized sector in which the maximum number of watches are sold are below Rs.300.
Quartz watches form two third of the organized sector and the rest is split between mechanical and digital
watches. Even in the organized sector, three fourth of the sales by volume comes from watches that are priced
below Rs.1000.
Watch is one of the consumer durables whose replacement rate is very high. The replacement rate of
watch is 33.8 %( Source: India market demographics report, 1998).

This is also due to the fact that the

estimated scrap rate of wrist watches is 7.8%, which is applicable after 6 years (Source: India market
demographics report, 1998). So, due to high scrap rate, outdated models, and the shift from the mechanical
watches to the quartz watches it is causing a very high replacement demand for watches. This along with the
low penetration level represents the untapped market potential for watches in India.
After liberalization of Indian economy in 1992 many international players have entered the Indian Watch
market posing as competitive threat to the Indian companies.
Lately Titan has tried to reposition its Brand to capture more segments of the watch market retaining the
already served market segment. The strategy has been studied in deep during the project. Many brands and
companies are constantly reinvigorating their businesses and positioning them for growth. There is a constant
need to innovate, reinvigorate, update, recalibrate, or just simply fend off the competition in an effort to better
explain "why buy me."
Brand positioning creates a specific place in the market for the brand and product offerings. It reaches
a certain type of consumers and delivers benefits that meet the needs of several key target groups and user.
The actual approach of a company or brand's positioning in the marketplace depends on how it
communicates the benefits and product attributes to consumers and users. As a result, the brand positioning
