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.”
