Default Re: I'm a watchaholic!!

I completely agree! The biggest charm about HMT is that it's a 60's watch with a 60's design at a 60's price. I don't think there's any other watch which can claim the same. Sad that they've shut down now.

The Sea Urchin is one of my favorites. It's equally comfortable with crisp formals on a monday as it is with a tee and a pair of jeans on friday. It now has the SKX009 for company. The quintessential Seiko Diver with a pepsi bezel. I've ordered a Super Oyster bracelet as the Jubilee which comes factory installed is too jiggly (I can't call it anything else..) for my taste.

Got a Timex Weekender from Amazon for a awesome price of Rs1245!

A good friend got me a Seiko 5 brown dial from USA. Lovely watch!

Has anyone bought HMT watches from https://www.hmtwatches.in ? I am doubtful of the ones available in Flipkart. Many reviews say what they received aren't original HMTs. Do we still have a showroom in Bangalore where HMT watches are available?

If you find anthing you like and are prepared to wait, go for it.

A few of us bought from hmtwatches.in The watches arrived in about a months time. There is no option to check the order status other than calling them up. I received a call before the actual shipment stating that the exact model was not in stock and am I ok with a slightly different model.

Casio Edifice EMA-100D-1A2V .
Bought from Doha, Qatar last week for 546 Qatari Riyals which is about 9515 INR when converted! I believe or so i was told that watches are marginally cheaper there, thats the sole reason i bought it. Wanted something from Seiko Sportura series but i couldn't find 1 of my choice.
This Edifice was retailing at Flipkart(or was it Casio website?can't seem to remember) for 12k so i assume in the neighbourhood mall it must be for 13-14k ?! Shall post better pictures later.
