Designing modern luxury is no easy task. It has to come with a contemporary outlook combined with authenticity and innovation, and since 1941, working on a vision born in a small New York City leather workshop, Coach has been applying a modern American approach to classic techniques invented in Europe centuries ago.
For over 75 years, Coach has inspired the dreamer, the fashion lover and the discerning.
Building on the heritage of craftsmanship and a confident New York style to provide a complete lifestyle statement to the modern-day maharanis. To ensure the same philosophy of focusing on craftsmanship and quality across the watch category too, the Group has partnered with the Swiss-headquartered, Movado Group International, to manufacture their luxury timepieces. Since 1998, designed by Coach and manufactured by Movado Group, the Coach Watch Collection for men and women have been offering fashionable signature design and quality workmanship.
A perfect blend of classic American style with the New York spirit, the design elements combine style and functionality. What makes the Coach watches distinct are use of iconic elements of Tea Roses, the Horse & Carriage logo, hand tags and story patches on the back cover, and the signature print and the C emblem brand code as seen across the Coach bags and other categories too.
Not to shy away from going bold and youthful, in lines with the brand DNA, we can see use of distinct colours of royal purple, signature browns, deep greens, soft blush pinks, midnight blues, rich blacks, and gorgeous golds. Pavé crystals which showcase brilliance and clarity, elegant mother of pearl dial, pressed jewellery mesh adorned watches add the perfection to the luxurious watches from Coach. Confident of the quality on offer, Coach watches come with a 2-year international warranty on the watch and also the plating, something not very common in other brands.
Complimenting Zee Zest’s August Digital Cover star Huma Qureshi’s looks, are three stunning timepieces from Coach, personifying the strength of character of a modern independent and successful movie star like Huma.
