CHENNAI: Drummer Kalaimamani A Sivamani inaugurated the renovated showroom of Raajsan Watch Company at Purasawalkam, recently. Checking out the range of wrist watches and wall clocks available at the store, Sivamani said, “I have never seen so many watches in one place before!”

Later, the popular drums player enthralled visitors at the store with a live performance. He was accompanied by models, who paraded the floor  displaying the latest collection of watches.

Shradha Malvania, one of the proprietors of the building where the store is located, says that the company existed in a small 400 square feet room till 2010, after which it was shifted to the present building.

“The company then expanded to the top floor as well. Now, it is spread across a whopping 3,600 square feet including both floors,” she says.  Back in 1978, the small watch store was inaugurated by the then Governor of Tamil Nadu Sri Prabhudas Patwari. Now, the showroom includes 50 brands of wrist watches and 20 brands of wall clocks ranging from indigenous budget range to exclusive Swiss makes.

Customers can also select and order models displayed on television screens provided at all the counters.

The showroom also ensures after-sales care with experienced technicians available in-house for maintenance and repairs. Raajsan Watch Company is managed by Sandip Shah and his daughter Shradha.
