What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear “I’d Like To Buy the World A Coke?” The famous Italy Hilltop 1971 commercial of Coca-Cola comes to life in front of your eyes. What if you could experience the same emotion through a watch?
Leading giants Timex and Coca-Cola have come together with an iconic launch of their limited-edition watches, namely Timex Standard, Q Timex, and Timex T80. This iconic drop brings together vibrant colours and classic imagery together to unite the cry of tolerance with hope. It also reinforces America’s creativity, which they want the Indian consumers to strongly connect with.
The Hilltop commercial for Coca-Cola was one of the most persuasive advertising of all time. Its themes of peace, love, harmony, and hope perfectly characterized the changing cultural scene of the 1970s when it was first broadcasted in 1971.
The classic quote from the jingle, “I’d Like to Buy the World a Coke,” became a campaign slogan for sensitivity and wish almost overnight, elevating the bottle from a remedial course enjoyed by millions around the world—to a richer notion that still represents a shared experience between all people even now.
As for Timex India, its rich history resonates with the unity collection. From symbolising independent women in the 20th century to earning the name of people’s watchmaker, this brand is an embodiment of impeccable craftsmanship, quality and design. Rebel watchmakers for a cause right from 1854, its utilitarian nature makes it a preferred choice.
While the industries of these outstanding American businesses differ, they share a common belief in each of their products, whether an antique watch or an ice-cold bottle of Coke. What do Timex India and Coca-Cola have in common? Asking someone for a bottle of Coke equated to the gesture of asking someone for the time. Beliefs of overcoming obstacles, starting a decent dialogue, and forming a connection.
