Absolutely worth. Any Omega is. Swatch has a company-owned and run service centre in Delhi. The address is
Swatch Group (India) Private Limited
4th Floor, Rectangle – 1,
Plot No. D – 4, Saket District Centre
IN-New Dehli – 110017
India
Phone: +91 11 4609 2900
Fax: +91 11 4609 2999

Talk to them, and if any further help required, PM me.

Edit: looks like the glass, hands and strap are missing - I hope the mechanism inside is there and repairable.

Help ! Mine is a Titan one. Any one knows how to check the model no/name of a watch. I really wish to check related info online. Just can't figure out the exact model no. I even tried Google image search !

Try HMT Bhavan near Mekhri circle. If its not available, you can request them to keep you informed whenever the model is available.

Another store which keeps good stock of HMTs is in BVK Iyengar road. Just enter the street and you will find the store on the right hand side apprx 50 meters from the signal.

After seeing your watch I couldn't resist and on an impulse I bought it on the same day from Lenskart. I got it at Rs.5666 with an EMI of Rs.944 for 6 months and I also got a free Sandisk 4gb pendrive.

My new watch..
Got myself a Citizen Skyhawk AT Titanium (JY0010-50E)
Got it from US (skyhawk is not available in India, only Navihawk watches are available as of now)

Looks super cool and light weight too.

I got this gift from wifey on sunday for being patient with her shopping. It was on my check list for a long time. Actually this was Number 2. The first on wanted list was G Shock Mudman 9300. But sadly after checking with a dozen shops in Ahmedabad i couldnt find it any where. Some how i wasnt 100% sure of ordering it online. So i settled for the 2nd best on my wanted list; Classic Tough Black 7900. Ever since i got my Enfield last b'day i wanted a Defy + & a G Shock. Now my set is complete. Enfield Class 500; Defy + & G shock. Out doors here i come

The price was 5995/- at shoppers stop + 10% discount. Paid 5395/-.

It looks great! Congrats.
I am also an eco-drive owner for the last 6 years now.
Runs like a charm with ZERO issues, touch wood.
Coming to your specific one, it doesn't work in India as it is supposed to. Isn't it?
Reason is that the preset time zones that it supports are only those time zones that are +/- from UTC in hours.
India being UTC + 5:30, it isn't supported. So whenever you would want to switch from one time zone to another, it is always flawed. Isn't this the case?
Atleast this is the case with my eco-drive which is also skyhawk, i presume. I don't remember the exact model number anymore.

Yup, it is light b'coz the body and the strap is all made of titanium.

Cheers,

Thanks..
Deepak,
It has preset 43 cities timezone.
Delhi is also included as part of the city timezone.
Also you can add HOME CITY by adjusting the hours from the UTC (+5.30).. Not an issue ,So works like a charm..
Sad part, As it's an Atomic time keeping watch, I'm still not able to syncro the Radio signal with any satellite here in Bangalore.

That is really great to hear Sushrutha.
Sadly, my watch is i guess ver.1 and this one does not support timezone like ours.

doesn't look as small all Navihawk.. but not bulky either.
Just perfect for my hand (will post the pic later).
Good part is it never needs a battery & never needs time adjustment as long as it catches radio singals nd exposed to light ;-)

Folks, Once again couple of watches added to the collection. Now the finance ministry also added to purchase. Hence the month of August harvested a Concord(His), Omega Geneva GP(His) and a Longines (Her) watches.

The Omega pictures are not available yet but other two.

In what could be the lowest priced watch on this thread, I own a Casio F91W-1 that I bought 4 years ago when I was in the US, studying. Got this for $11 and continue to use it till date. I really do not have to bother about it once it is on my wrist. It's very lightweight and you barely feel it on the hand. You get replacement straps for ~Rs50 and the battery supposedly lasts 10years. Haha... I'm cheap
