launched an exclusive limited edition collection of Maxi Marine Chronometer watches limited to 34 timepieces in the honor of legendary Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar. Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan presented the time piece to Sunil
Gavaskar. From one legend to another, each representing their respective
fraternities, Bollywood and Cricket.
These 34 watches
symbolize the 34 centuries made by the sportsman and more importantly, each
watch has engraved the name of the city where the century was made. The self winding movement watch crafted in 18K rose-gold and the exhibition case back is one of its highlights. Gavaskar fans will love that the elegant 43mm case is individually numbered and dedicated to each one of his memorable centuries. It makes a great gift for the cricket buff or the watch connoisseur and collector.
To commemorate the
event, luminaries from bollywood and cricket were present to support Sunil
Sunil Gavaskar was
touched by the respect and gratitude showered upon him. "Couple of years from now I would complete 25
years since I retired from the game, and to be remembered almost 25 years later
is overwhelming. It is a true honour to represent India," said
between Mr. Bachchan and Mr. Gavaskar was evident from the former’s tweet later
that day when he tweeted, "Just had
the great honour of felicitating dear friend and sporting icon, Sunil
Gasvakar... A great son of India... Privileged," the 70-year-old actor
"Sunil Gavaskar is as gracious and as
entertaining as ever. He is a great mimic among many other special attributes
he possesses, and had the entire audience in splits," Amitabh Bachchan
Patrick Hoffman, CEO,
Ulysse Nardin graciously took stage to inaugurate the proceedings that
followed. This exclusive timepiece retails for approx USD 25,000 and is a must-have for the
cricket loyalist and aficionado.
