Great pic of the Pilot. Mine is about a year old, use it often for office wear. You will love the versatility it provides for different occasions.

Pilot is available in most of the HMT authorized stores. Should not be difficult to find.

Is the HMT Pilot available online somewhere? I own 2 Tissot Chrono watches (which I absolutely love) a couple of Timex and a 1949 Favre-Leuba Seaking Automatic. Which has been running since 1949 and never went to the service center even once.

Better to buy the Pilot from a store. A friend had ordered throug ebay and he got a scratched watch. Best place to buy would be HMT Bhavan near Mekhri circle. And its the model which most stores stock.

Great to hear on the Favre-Leuba. I was very close to picking up a refurbished Favre-Leuba Zenith model but backed off at the last moment, regret it now.

One of those spontaneous purchases. Did not plan to buy this, just happened to be love at first sight.

Smile Edifice all the way

A nice macho Edifice. Prior to this- had a Titan.

Had an offer from my M-I-L for getting an Omega (Till she heard the price! )

But I am quite careless (as my wife says) - so no mega buck watches for me.

Congratulations. A beautiful watch indeed. Care to share the price, discount offered, if any etc.?

Buying watches spontenenously is actually the best fun. I have bought almost all watches like that.

Nice watch. Do they have other straps and colors on offer too?

P.S: Guys, it would be appreciated if everyone while sharing pictures of their watches can share price, discounts availed, bought from where details which would help fellow watch loving members

Glad you liked it This particular model comes only with a yellow strap But there are couple of other expedition series that come with a light brown dial and black dial with matching straps. Am attaching pictures for your reference. By the way the cost of the watch is 11K

Hi Avinash: Thanks! This one retails for around 1250 USD I think, but I am not at liberty to reveal the final price! Procured directly from the company, no retailer / reseller involved. Sometimes, for a variety of reasons including those of privacy, it is not advisable/feasible to share details of prices, discounts and sources of procurement on a public forum. I hope you'll appreciate that and not mind my not mentioning the final price.

Hmm, I absolutely dont mind as I anyways cannot afford such luxury watches

But, i dont agree that prices and discounts cannot be shared here as majority of us buy it through normal channels from stores or internet either in India or abroad so it should not be a problem unless its a rare case like yours which is procured directly from company

Hi all,

I am old to this site but new to this thread.
I am a real Casio fan. I have been wearing different Casio Watches for the last 20 yrs.
What I love about Casio is that you get so many features apart from the time itself.
A Rolex or Omega will just give you time, and they are good if you value design and brands. On the other hand Casio will give you Solar Power (No Batteries for Life), World time, ABC (Altitude, Barometer, Compass), Temperature, Alarms, Stop Watches and most of all pretty good reliability.

I have owned Casio Databanks before we could store phone lists on mobile. I have had watches with TV/VCR Remotes, BP Monitors, and what not.

But then that's my logic for loving Casio. But as they say Different Strokes for different folks.

Now to the Watches I own currently :

The 2 watches I have bought myself are :

1. Casio Pathfinder PAW1500-T (My regular use watch)

2. Casio Protrek PRG5100-1 (Still not started using it, just got it from the US in June)

Both are ABC, with Tough Solar Powered, Atomic Syncing. World time is really useful when I travel abroad.

Apart from this there are regular Analog watches which have been gifted to me and I like and keep.

1. Victorinox
2. DKNY
3. Studio Armani.

I gave away all the Titans that I got as gifts at various times as I feel they are of bad quality, and have nothing but the titan brand name.

I am attaching the Stock Images of the 2 Casio Watches I love.
