In the spirit of producing world-class wristwatches that tell stories from India, Bangalore Watch Company™ announces the launch of two new watches in its Cover Drive sports watch collection that celebrates the undying spirit of Indian Cricket.
The first of the two watches is named ‘The Yellow Jersey’ with a mustard yellow dial, and other named ‘Men in Blue’ with a pastel blue dial colour.

Speaking about the release, Nirupesh Joshi Co-founder and Creative Director said, “The earlier models of our Cover Drive collection in 2020 drew inspiration from the Cricket ground, namely – the Outfield, the Pitch, and the Pavilion; the two new colours for 2021 extend the Cricket narrative by paying tribute to the coveted jerseys of cricket teams.”
“Since launch in 2020, our Cover Drive collection is the new favourite among our customers. The collection is a perfect sports watch for the urban gentleman with a surgical-grade steel case, a rotating bezel to track elapsed overs, 100 meters of water-tightness, a Swiss automatic movement, and high-quality leather straps. We believe the new watches will be the perfect summer accessory and apt for the 2021 Cricket season,” said Mercy Amalraj, Co-founder and Head of Customer Experience.
The Cover Drive sports watches have design features that borrow from cricket. The primary 12 O’clock marker is shaped like the wicket, markers 4 and 6 are prominently displayed on the dial denoting the boundary shots, the seconds-hand is designed in the form of a cricket bat, and the watches come with an innovative mechanism that allows the wearer to track elapsed 50 overs, or 20 overs during the game, using their wristwatch.
