Titan Company changed the way watches were designed, manufactured and marketed and revolutionized the Indian Watch Industry. Today, Watches are considered as a fashion Accessory, rather than a time keeping device.
Titan Watches, the most trusted and popular Watches in India are manufactured at Hosur, an Industrial suburb of Tamil Nadu, India. Set up in 1985, with initially planned annual capacity of 2 million, today the unit produces components for over 11 million quartz analog wrist watches, thanks to the state-of-art manufacturing facilities at the unit.

In 1989, watch case manufacturing technology was obtained from Citizen Watch Co. of Japan and in mid 90's, the technology for complicated watch cases and solid link bracelets manufacture was obtained from a Swiss company. State of the art physical vapour coating facilities have been established with the help of technology from German and Swiss coating expert companies.
