Must be the Decker Chronograph Mesh Strap. Looks equally good.

I currently own the Timex Automatic Steel T2D921 Watch for daily use.
I want to own a Tissot as my next watch.

I have a passion for automatic mechanical watches. Had a series of Seiko, then bought Tissot day-date ten years ago, gifted it to my son and bought a Rolex GMT Master-II four years ago. Will post pictures when I take them.

I took my Citizen Ecodrive to a neighborhood watch guy for removing a couple of links.

I had tried doing that earlier in my house but was unable to do so. Lucky me!

The old guy removed the link and showed me a small bush that holds it in place. The bush was about 1 mm long and .5 mm wide. It would have been so easy to miss, if not looking for it.

As per him its a little difficult to source as well.

So guys with new watches be careful where to get them fitted. Find an experienced guy to do it.

Today's TOI edition had a special feature and discount details only on watches.

From the numerous watch pictures I liked only a couple of them (Timex ) & one simply irresistable (Citizen Eco-drive)

Will check them out in person during this weekend.

@bblost
Yes, some watches have an extra bushes some have split pin. But not to worry if you are removing more than one link. You can take it from the removed links. Did you do this adjustment in US or here? Repair guys charge $10-15 there in USA. I bought a small watch strap adjustment tool from ebay for $7 and do the adjustment myself. Its a 5 minutes job, as you said need to be carefull about the small bush in some watches.

In India, Hyderabad.

I like this watch repair shop. Its run by an old man and sometimes his son.
He regales you with jokes and stories, while repairing watches.

Charged me Rs 10/- for this.

Hello all,

Though not an avid watch enthusiast I have small collection of watches including one of my grandfather.

Have anyone come across british make ACCURIST. That is my latest possession. Pretty decent designs. Heavy though. But built to last forever. Other piece I am using ofr over 4 years on day to day basis now which includes working in workshops / engine room etc. Have held its appearance.
Pls check link Accurist Watches: Home.
they are more like what Titan or say HMT is in India as per my brit pals.
Rgds.
