Tata’s Sonata in ‘youthful’ makeover mode; spends Rs 4 cr on new brand identity

Sonata, the watch brand from the house of Tata, has announced the makeover of its brand identity with the unveiling of an all new refreshingly vibrant logo and a new brand tagline: ‘Wait Mat Kar’.

The new tagline: ‘Wait Mat kar’, reflects the urgency, impatience and go-getter attitude of the youth.

Commenting on the new brand identity, Harish Bhat, COO, Time Products Division, Titan Industries Ltd, said, “Sonata started its journey in 1997 with a promise of delivering quality timepieces at a competitive price. While our market share has continued to increase over the past years, we felt that there was a need to renew the brand identity, and further strengthen the link between Sonata and the younger consumers of India.”

On the thought process, R Balki, Chairman & Chief Creative Officer, Lowe Lintas, who has been one of the key persons involved in developing the new identity for Sonata, shared, “For me, the essence of rebranding is to maintain the best of what the brand already stands for and blend it with what’s new and current. We believe that its compelling that a watch brand tells you not just the time, but also highlights the need to make the most of it.”

Bhat further said, “With India having the largest population of youth today in the age group of 15-26 years, this rebranding exercise is a reflection of the ever-changing aspirations of this generation. Sonata, as a brand reflects young India’s mindset today – of strong aspirations, coupled with a sense of urgency and impatience to make things happen.”
