Sir, You have some magic to read my mind

The moment I saw this, I wanted to ask you if you could check with the dealer for one more white dial Sona/Pilot or any other military styled HMT.

Got it just an hour before>>" White dial Sona" for you..( No MORE)
JAWAN is the only military watch from HMT, all other stuff you see at various sites are FAKES ( especially one with Arabic numbers & a Arrow on the dial is a FAKE....they are Taiwanese Dups !!)
& for your kind information: There is no white dial PILOT watches, that to are fakes OR imitation White Sona dial has a PILOT script instead of SONA
any way while returning..had a call from our friend ..& news was MONDIA the Spanish watch ( Swiss movements though!!)
Clean & neat H/W quick date adjust watch with SOFT PVC Original strap!!




And couldn't stop with that saw this beauty 52mm SEIKO automatic,( largest diameter round watch in my collection) with original bracelet


& finally my POLJOT H/W date( Made in USSR) only watch arrived after service, still not confident with this Russian machine ( due to lack of suitable parts)

@Powertwin thank you so much. When comes to HMT in my watch collection you are the only one to be remembered.

Ok, now my update as discussed over the phone I went to the TIMEX showroom with my wify and she gifted me a brand new Timex automatic watch (20% deepavali discount made the trick). Here is the picture of my actual Timex purchase, We went thinking of buying the calendar watch as advertised but somehow I was attracted towards the all black automatic watch from Timex SLX series.

This one's not an automatic, right?
You'll have to wind it every few days, I think.

I got my first watch when I was standard 3, a hand-me-down Favre Leuba from my mom. Since then, I have collected several watches and added them to my collection including a very rare 1965 automatic gold watch from Citizen.

Below are the 2 of my daily-wear watches. These are not the pics of my personal watches but what I could find online. I will post the pics of my other watches soon.



This is a Blue dial Fossil Speedway that I received on my wedding.



This is a 2004 Swatch Pheidipides celebrating the Athens Olympics. The consignment was submerged in the Mumbai Floods. Only the main hands work and not the sub-dials.

I also have the HMT with dual display gifted to me by my principal for topping the list, a slimline watch, a Carriage by Timex and some more. Not a great collection, but an interesting one. The only one I don't have and want to add some day is a moonphase watch.

@karankapoor, thats a nice watch. I am impressed with Titan's latest offerings. Its on par with its international counterparts.

What would be the price for that watch?
