As a high-end manufacturer, SAVOY competes with some of the most well-known luxury watch brands worldwide.

SAVOY’s designs are bold, modern, edgy and supreme targeted at those who seek quality products with a high style and design quotient and believe in innovation over price or name.

Speaking about the launch of SAVOY Watches in India, Mr. Pascal Savoy, Founder of SAVOY said, “I have always been infatuated with the world of luxury and innovation and it’s this passion that has helped me build the SAVOY brand and fill the void in the watch industry for Swiss Made watches. When retailers put out watches in their showcases, you can’t tell which watch belongs to which brand. SAVOY watches stand out because of their stylish square-shaped barrel and round face design. We are confident that SAVOY’s iconic designs, affordable prices and unique style statement will have a huge fan following in India.”
Highlighting the new trends in the Luxury segment, Mr. Savoy further added, “Nowadays, men are changing their watches more often compared to 10 years ago. Despite mobile phones now serving as timepieces, watches remain an expression of personal style. SAVOY is not a fashion watch that follows trends, it is attractive because of its understated elegance. The watch positions itself as affordable luxury synonymous with confidence, character and class.”
