Hey @450X-Pre-Orders ,
There is a collector in all of us, (okay maybe just some of us :p) For some it might have started off with a few old coins or stamps lying around the house, or a hot wheels car as your 10th birthday gift. Perhaps you were trading and collecting Pokemon cards, or the Beyblades, or vinyl records? There are a few among us, who persevered and grew those collections over the years and collected some really cool and unique pieces all along the way.
Our collector’s edition for the Ather 450X is not so different, it appeals to the enthusiasts who want a special slice of the Ather 450X experience, an exclusive limited-edition version, which the rest of the world won’t be able to get their hands on.
Our passion and enthusiasm for the Collector’s Edition started internally at Ather. We asked a few of our folks at Ather if they had collections and what made them special. Here’s some of what they shared with us.
“I loved cars when I was 2 years old, and I love cars when I am 26!”
Bernard is one of our Customer Service Executives, and many of you might have interacted with him if you reached out to our team anytime. His collection of scale models of cars looks amazing, and you can spend hours staring at the incredible detail in these models.
“I take my music seriously and collecting physical formats of the music I love comes naturally to me. “
Karthik works in our Business Tools team, where he works on solutions that keep the business aspects chugging along smoothly. Karthik has a collection of Original Vinyls and CDs, which for some of the younger folks here, vinyl are like large CDs.
Keval works with our Business Tools team, and his collection gives a hint into his wide range of interests and passions. Right from unique stamps, to pokemon cards it’s impressive that he’s managed to keep these for so many years.
Chacha Chaudhary comics have a special space in my childhood. I didn’t like to travel back in the day, so as a bribe I used to get 1 comic at the bus stand whenever we used to travel and every night my father used to read me 1 chapter. So it made traveling gratifying for me. My father had a transferrable job, so one time while moving cities I lost my whole collection of about 40-45 comics. Then just last year I found few and only diamond comics at blossoms and I brought them back home
Nischal is our interaction designer and is the face behind the clean and beautiful pages that you see at atherenergy.com. Nishcal has shared a photo of what appears to be one of the early editions of Chacha Chaudary!
Grammophone Records: The records represent hardcopy of the history of music and music tech and emotions associated with it. Most of my records were lent to me by people who no longer found it useful. But they have fond memories associated with their elders enjoying them. Whenever guests are at home, I don’t miss a chance to demonstrate a part of my collection
Stamps: They are a unique insight into a country. You have stamps covering places, events, people, animals, national treasures, and whatnot. Each stamp collection is a study of the country/era
Tej is part of our Program Management team and works on ensuring that all teams work together, to get software delivered to you, that is tested and on-time. While he brags about multiple collections of coins, currency notes, vinyl, and stamps, here’s a small sneak peek into his stamp and vinyl collection.
Jashan is part of our team which focuses on testing electrical and electronic systems at Ather. His impressive collection of scale models of cars is incredible, and even categorized by color!
The Collector’s edition reminded us of all the collections we had stocked up at some point. We started this internally and then felt our community would be no different, with similar interests and passions. And if this finds a lot of takers we could even turn this into a collectibles exchange or barter system Why not?
