Here is one of my current favourites. The Orient Saturation diver. Lovely watch and not too common as well.

In watches the movement is referred to as caliber, not calibre by the way. As opposed to the case.

I took a look at the Mitch & Marc website. Their products are of high quality, however their prices are also quite high for my needs considering that I am looking to house the 35 odd HMT watches that I bought on a shopping spree last year. Hopefully someday I will be able to afford more expensive watches.

Got for myself a Skagen:

It looks pretty slim and very much fitting. The red contrast on the black dial looks awesome!

I recently bought an apple watch stainless steel model (38mm) from australia and loving it. it completely stands out and the interfacing with my iphone 6 makes it very tempting. i have bought Milanese loop separately which gives a luxury feel.

After having spend most of my life dreaming about Speedmaster (thanks in part to Schumacher), I got myself a Speemaster '57 (Reference: 331.10.42.51.03.001) with Omega's Self-winding 9300 chronograph movement with column wheel mechanism and Co-Axial Escapement.

This was the Omega that won my heart. Absolutely adore it.

P.S - As you can clearly tell, my photography skills are quite pathetic. The watch does look a lot better in person

Casio Enticer Analog White Dial Men's Watch - MTP-1379D-7BVDF (A869)

I also saw it displayed in shopping malls in Chennai, but it was cheaper online.

The watches I currently have.

Tag Heuer Formula 1; bought it in 2012 in Seattle.
Ferrari Formula 1 watch; bought on board a Singapore Airlines flight
Swiss Army Renegade with compass: my oldest, most used watch. Bought at a Victorinox shop in Seattle in 1997.

I want to buy the Omega Speedmaster HB-SIA watch but its a bit too expensive for me at the moment.

Could anyone recommend good places that stock watch straps in Bombay?
Need to change straps on two of my watches. Want high quality leather.
I'm new to Bombay, so don't know where to start.
I live at BARC and work at Tata Memorial Hospital..
