I was shown the Nicolas Rieussec but since I was not in the market for a watch I dint look at them seriously.

Stowa, again is an interesting brand. I like their chronograph model range. Please do post the pictures once you get it.

Guys,

Any idea if HMT Kohinoor is still available? Saw the pics somewhere and realised my father used to have one, for a long time - but somehow got lost now. Would be a nice gift for him, if i can buy it.

EDIT: Where is store in bnagalore?

CrAzY dRiVeR, on this thread you will find all details of the HMT stores in Bangalore.

In case of Thursday morning laziness blues (happens to the best of us ), here goes:

1) Lakshmi Watch Store (or Works?) - Unity Building, opposite the "official" HMT watch shop. Proprietor: Mr. Shetty. Free: badam milk in plastic cup.

2) HMT Bhavan - a little north of Mekhri Circle. Proprietor: Rotund, greasy-haired, shifty character. Free: improve your kannada slang in 15 minutes!

I'm sure your Dad would love to have a Kohinoor. Do share some pics when you get one.

Cheers,
Rahul

I'm in love with all-black watches. Don't know how much of a fashion statement they are, but they work for me.
Currently have this Titan Obaku

Appears to be a pocket watch with a hunter case - an unusually decorative one at that. Would be interesting to know what it is and where you got it from.

Yes, it is unusual and very beautiful has a very clear proceline dial that has no cracks or an sort of damage. It took my attention in a split of a second. I got this watch from a person who got it as a family heirloom here in USA. This watch came with the original lady's picture who owned in at least 100 years back (?). The photo of the lady looked old but not sure if it is 100 years old, who cares end of the day it is a antique piece of beaut to be preserved.

Presenting there the American Waltham gold huntercase pocket watch, circa 1902.

When I bought it I thought it was from 1877 based on the serial numbers from the case but later learned that the date of the watch could only be determined by the movement serial number and as per the movement serial number it is 1902 model Waltham watch.

The pictures below shows the original color and shared by the seller, above pictures were an outcome of my iPhone.

You mean you didn't have to pay for it? Wow!!! You have a piece of American heritage in your possession. Did you manage to identify the lady and/or the child in the picture?

Oops I did pay for it, no I didn't want to do the investigation to identify the lady as I took it from heirloom and also not enough time and saved myself from unwanted attention as stranger from her family

Parents gifted me a Titan Edge when I got my first job through campus placement in 2008. It's very elegant and formal. Has a sapphire crystal onthe face hence till date it is scratch less and looks as good as new!

I can't help but smile at this fully Indian Devnagri HMT Janata watch, whenever I steal a glance at it ticking away merrily!

After a long delay at customs, my Stowa is finally delivered to me. Either Stowa or Fedex goofed up and messed with the delivery which resulted in 10 days delay. Anyway, I received this beauty last Tuesday. Am not sure if the pics do justice to this magnificent piece. It really looks very elegant and classy, just the kind of chrono I was looking for. These are night pics which I clicked just a while ago, I'll hopefully add day pics very soon. It uses the Valijoux 7753 caliber which is now used in most auto chronos.

Let me be the first to congratulate you on this stunning acquisition. The watch looks better everytime I look at it. The online pics do no justice to the beauty. Im especially smitten by the picture of the back casing with all the exposed mechanicals. So how do you plan on using it? Daily wear or dress watch.

Once again congratulations. This watch is a stunner. And probably an expert conversation starter
