India's first international watch magazine WatchTime India launched with its first edition in July. The magazine is collaboration between the Malayala Manorama Group and Watch Time USA. The official launch has taken place at The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel on 28th June with actress Priyanka Chopra and an eclectic guest list of the city’s glitterati expected to attend to show their support.
Popularising and celebrating the evolving watch culture, WatchTime India will offer enthusiasts and aficionados an enriching mix of informative and entertaining articles on watches and lifestyle. This will be India’s first exhaustive watch magazine with an international partner and will have insights from experts and legendary watch writers like Joe Thompson, Editor-in-Chief of WatchTime USA. Neha S. Bajpai, one of the leading writers on premium watches in the country, will edit WatchTime India.
On the occasion of the launch Riyad Mathew, Senior Assistant Editor & Director of the Malayala Manorama Group, said, “We are happy to bring WatchTime, the ultimate authority on fine watches, to India, to cater to the connoisseurs of luxury watches. This is one of the fastest growing segments in India”.

It clearly shows the strength of WatchTime as a worldwide watch media brand. We are now looking forward to expanding our cooperation with Malayala Manorama into other media channels in India and beyond.”
