Lord Venkateshwara Swamy’s image on Swiss watches?? Yes, it is true that the image of Lord Venkateshwara will soon appear on the dial of watches made by Switzerland-based Centurion watch company.
Company representatives met Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) officials on 20 February 2013 and sought the permission to use the image of the Lord on the watch dial.
The Centurion watch company will make 333 diamond-studded watches, each worth several crores of rupees, to be auctioned in London.
It has come forward to donate a percentage of its profit to the TTD-run Balaji Institute of Surgery and Relief and Rehabilitation of the Disabled (BIRRD) Trust.
