Eastern times, Correspondent, Dhaka, 17 November: The Indian High Commission in Dhaka has unveiled three special edition wristwatches marking the birth centenary of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

The watches made by Titan, a concern of the Tata group in India, contain the portrait and signature of Bangabandhu on their dials.

Road, Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader unveiled the special edition wristwatches at the Secretariat alongside Indian High Commissioner to Bangladesh Vikram Doraiswami on Tuesday, said a press release.
