Speaking to newsmen at the launch, Titan Watches chief operating officer Harish Bhat said "the Company would contribute a sizeable amount from the sales proceeds of these watches to the WWF. The main objective was to spread awareness about some of the highly endangered species in India," he said. The dial of these watches draw inspiration from six endangered species, namely Bengal Tiger, Indian Rhino, Gangetic Dolphin, Red Panda, Whale Shark and Oliver Ridley Turtle.

WWF India Secretary General Ravi Singh highlighted the need for more design houses across the country to spread the message of preservation of some of the endangered species in the country. He said it is alarming that the number of the species chosen for the Titan line had reduced drastically in recently years. Available in 13 different styles, the watches have been priced between Rs 3,000 and Rs 3,800.
