From being a useful tool for telling the time, it became a fashion accessory and post-that, a wearable communication device. Today, the Burberrys, Fossils and Calvin Kleins watch in dismay as Apple and Google make a forays into the market. It was in this scenario that two entrepreneurs with an artistic bend of mind dared to launch a wooden analog watch brand recently. Tsar (meaning Emperor in Russian) is a lifestyle watch brand that sells wooden watches.

Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters. Things that lure us today may not possess the same charm over time; with repetitive designs and dreary concepts in line of production.

Haider stumbled upon the idea of wooden watches. It was certain that the product was not available in India, making the prospect even more challenging.
