Fastrack was launched in 1998 as a sub-brand of Titan. It was spun off as an independent brand of watches targeting the urban youth in 2005. Since then, it has infiltrated the lives of India’s youth with designs that were refreshingly different and affordable. After tasting success with watches, the brand jumped headlong into the sunglasses business and in the last 4 years, has deservedly earned the title of being the largest sunglasses brand in the country.

Matching and wearing is another tenet publicized by the brand in which they encourage youngsters to match and coordinate sunglasses with their bags, watches and attire.
When it comes to product design, Fastrack has not shied away from bold colours and styles reflecting the tastes of their target consumers. Moreover, these were available at reasonable prices starting at Rs.699. Fastrack recently launched its collection of Tees sunglasses which is all about basic wayfarer frames in stylish
