    Meanwhile, Babin added that the company has also revised the starting price of the phone from Rs 2,20,000 to Rs 2,70,000. However, the phones, once launched, will be available through exclusive Tag Heuer boutiques and select stores. In India, the company has recently opened 2 boutiques, one each in UB Group’s UB City Mall and DLF’s Emporio Mall.
