Favre-Leuba, the second oldest Luxury Swiss Watch Brand has announced India’s no 1 off-road racer, CS Santosh as the brand ambassador for their Raider Sea Sky timepieces. As a Dakar competitor, CS Santosh is synonymous with testing the limits of performance. He has already won several races such as Raid de Himalaya, Desert Storm and India Baja, and is also the winner of P1 Power Boats.
Taking on the new role as Indian brand ambassador for Favre- Leuba, CS Santosh said, “It is an absolute delight for me to be associated with Favre-Leuba. It is a brand that believes in celebrating its strong heritage and conquering frontiers. I consider this to be a very exciting collaboration. Finally, their belief of breaking new barriers aligns very well with my personal mantra in life.”
Since 2016, the brand has been testing the time piece and its performance across challenging environments. This proves it as an instrument with genuine functionality beyond telling time. The watch has successfully managed to withstand various extreme weather conditions and environmental changes. This makes it an ideal fit for a rugged environment as extreme as off-road racing.
The Raider Sea Sky combines the functionality of a chronograph with the practical benefit of a rotating bezel. This allows the wearer to calculate speed and precise time. Favre-Leuba says the Raider Sea Sky aligns perfectly with Santosh’s unaverred adventures. Lastly, a pop of color makes an impact and complements the luminous index marks on the dial.
CS Santosh, as an off-road bike racer needs a device which can be his time keeping companion. Additionally, the timepiece must stay put on his wrist and function through a very rigid environment. This makes the Raider Sea Sky the most compatible time piece for him and all his racing expeditions where even a hundredth of a second can define results.
Speaking on the collaboration, Vijesh Rajan, brand head of Favre-Leuba said, “It bring us great joy to announce CS Santosh as our Indian brand ambassador. Santosh has represented India for more than a decade now as a front runner in the world of motor sport. His limitless imagination to conquer new frontiers reflects perfectly in the DNA of Favre-Leuba. Globally, we’ve associated with Pen Hadow, Adrian Ballinger and Sayuri Kinoshita as Brand Ambassadors. We look forward to conquering new frontiers together with CS Santosh.”
All in all, the Raider Sea Sky is a great companion for adventurers that have exceptional demands when it comes to design and functionality. And CS Santosh will be putting it to the test!
