Krishnan Nair Watch House

The Krishnan Nair Group had its beginnings in 1911, when the late SRI. M.R. Krishnan Nair set up an outlet in Kottayam, under the name Krishnan Nair and Sons, for the sales and service of watches, wall-clocks and time pieces. With his courteous service and honest dealings as well as firmly believing in the motto "The Customer is King" he quickly acquired a vast happy and satisfied clientele, such that, at the time of his demise in 1948, he had made Krishnan Nair and Sons a household name in central Travancore.
