Varun Dhawan and Shruti Haasan as FOSSIL’s first ever Indian celebrity brand ambassadors

Fossil Firsts is a multimedia campaign. This campaign is starting a movement reminding you of not only your first watch but also the memories associated with that watch. Some customer’s first watch was likely a Fossil watch; however, Fossil knows that the customers have changed, and so have they. Fossil also introduces the Fossil Q series including various types of smartwatches, with fashion and design as the cores. And these are ready to become everyone’s first smartwatch. Fossil collaborates with influential Korean celebrities, Ji Chang Wook and Song Ji Hyo for this campaign. This campaign also celebrates their “firsts” and how these milestones shaped them to become the entertainers and persons they are today.

Speaking on the collaboration, Mr. Johnson Verghese, Managing Director, FOSSIL Indiasaid, “We are very excited to partner with young, refreshing talents like Varun and Shruti. They not only represent the next generation of Fossil fans, they also personify a rare blend of talent, class, intelligence and popularity. More importantly they complement FOSSIL’s legacy and brand ethos which hinges on three pillars – timeless style, authentic inspiration and spontaneous creatively. Both actors will be endorsing our latest Gen 3 touchscreen smartwatches in a multi-media campaign which is all set to kick off. The campaign aims to appeal to the discerning Indian customers, who seek the best of both fashion and technology. We firmly believe this engagement will open up new avenues for us to engage with a broad set of young consumers. We extend a very warm welcome to both actors and look forward to a fruitful journey”.

Q Venture on Shruti Haasan
Q Venture features two styles – luxury and classic. The new luxury style makes the touchscreen smartwatch an exquisite accessory thanks to rose gold-tone stainless steel bracelet and sparkling stones. The classic one crafted with a soft curving, multi-finish case, making it simple yet traditional.

I am truly delighted to endorse the brand for their smartwatches and leather bags which blend great style with functionality. I am incredibly flattered to represent a brand of global scale and to feature in one of the most interesting campaigns this season.”
