@rm_arjuna - looks like you did not go through the posts above :-). The link I mentioned is the same royal image and the only difference is price. Shankar and me already ordered the same.

Please post some real picture of the case if you have any

What watches do I have? Well, I have 3 watches that I keep rotating between, all through the week. I do have two more lying there somewhere in one of my cupboards or locked suitcases which are also pretty nice things.

The current 3 that I use are,
* A thick, heavy, rectangular Giordano Chrono. I do not know the model but the back cover says GIORDANO 1228.VD54
* Another thick, heavy but round Titan Automatic (Dyad, I think). I just love this one in particular.
* A regular, rectangular, steel Titan for rough-and-tough usage.

Mine are el cheapo Timex and Sonata models.

My maternal grandfather had bought a Favre-Leuba in the late fifties. It's a hand-wound model and a prized possession of my maternal uncle even today.

I remember my father wearing a watch branded Anglo-Swiss when I was very young. I still remember its logo - the cursive a. Has anyone heard about the brand?

1. TIMEX fastrack gifted by my Gf (now wife)
2. TITAN Edge gifted by wife on our first anniversary in last August and the battery has gone dead. No wonder it is the slimmest watch in the universe and seems that the batery is slim as well (it ran out in 5 months)

Titan will give you a free battery replacement if you present the watch with the guarantee card to them (any Titan World or Titan service centre). The battery life is guaranteed for 1 year. Otherwise the battery for EDGE costs Rs.130.

Received the watch box from Royal Images today. It was neatly packed and there was no damage at all. But fit and finish of the box is not top notch and I have a doubt in the quality of leather they used.

Something is better than nothing
