Timex Watches Ltd, has come up with a new brand campaign ‘Timex – What Next?’ The company also unveiled its new Timex 2006 international collection in the presence of its brand ambassador, Brett Lee, in the Capital on Tuesday.

Along with our extensive initiatives in retail and emphasis on bringing new differentiated product collections to the market, I am confident that 2006 will be the year in which Timex excels.”

The new brand campaign will follow a 360-degree approach and will be enhanced by innovative online and out of home campaigns, in store promotions and other consumer initiatives to complete the 360-degree approach to this new look campaign.
