MUMBAI: Swiss watchmaker Tissot has roped in Om Shanti Om star Deepika Padukone as its first Indian brand ambassador, and also as the ‘Face of Tissot’ worldwide.

She has that fighting spirit, with the ability to accept failure and still wanting to win. She justifies Tissot’score values of performance, precision and setting new records,” he added.
Padukone commented, “I was drawn to Tissot through my admiration of the company’s 154 years of watch-making history and its international reach as the traditional Swiss watch brand with the highest volume.”
