Quotes

"The only evidence I have that I got the call to play Amy is a selfie of me jumping in the rain in the Highlands," Pike says. "I look both happy and thoroughly daunted—the whole ‘You got the best gig in years’ scenario gives me the creeps.”"
Speaking about the watch industry, Hemal Mihir Kharod, COO of Trade Post & chief organizer of the fair said, "The size of the Indian watch & clock industry is estimated to the tune of around Rs. 10,000 crore. The present levels of import duties, multi-point taxation and other intermediary levies imposed upon watches are far too high and at times as high as 60% of the actual cost of the watch, thus making the product entirely unviable. The immediate need of the hour is to lower this structure to a fair play level and do away with the cascading effect it has on the final price of the product. This is also hindering the growth of the industry in India. If we compare the present government levies on watches in India, with those enjoyed by other lifestyle products in India such as writing instruments, eyewear, mobile phones, fragrances etc. Watches are perhaps the only exception, which are riddled with the highest duty and taxation structure."
"2014 will be a momentous year for us - Expo 2020 is now a reality and as a nation we are forging ahead with the Vision of His Highness Sheikh MohammedHis Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. At Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons , we have always endeavored to nurture a progressive and innovative outlook, ensuring that we remain at the forefront of not only international practices but also, trends and consumer needs. This new concept is a result of meticulous research and planning on how to further engage with our customers and offer them something above and beyond their expectations. We are confident that guests at our store will feel the difference as soon as they walk in and leave delighted" commented Mr. Abdul Hamied Seddiqi, Vice Chairman at Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons
"You give them a feel-good factor when they do something good for themselves and buy an expensive watch, and on top of that they give back: 'This is a beautiful watch, I love it, and on top of that I contribute to something intelligent'.”"
