My re-serviced Frankensteined HMT Pilot. Pretty happy with it for $15 from India. Changed the ugly strap it came with to a generic quick release strap.


EDIT*** not sure if it's shows with the picture I posted, but this also has a domed crystal. Another plus for me πŸ˜ƒ

cool watch. another watch with cool Indian ties is the Anglo Swiss Watch Company [Bombay originally i believe]. These are decidedly harder to come by, let alone in all original (non Frankenized) condition, but they are swiss made some with decent and attractive movements and low demand in the used/vintage space has them a little undervalued (sometimes a lot) for the quality/build and conservative watch designs. ex https://www.etsy.com/listing/530153786/anglo-swiss-watch-co-cavalry-swiss-made?gpla=1&gao=1&&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_b-jewelry-watches-wrist_watches-other&utm_custom1=b1945c8a-3c3a-4732-98b2-6f6eb2c48a09&gclid=Cj0KCQjwsZHPBRClARIsAC-VMPAqGC3bDoZibhildl_YBafCWf7tGpaIAU-73KzLw5HeVPCahgMyBbYaAohwEALw_wcB someone owns the rights of the name to this day but i don't know if it's a Stencil brand or an evolution of the original company
I feel like there's a major thing ppl are forgetting here,/not mentioning here, these are re-serviced ** pieces. I hope you all get a piece that's working as well as mine. Best of luck

Ditto.... hope every one enjoys these if you grabbed one!
Thanks for the link! This company has some pretty nice styles too. Also I'm Indian so this is actually pretty cool.
Very nice looking watch. Can you share the purchase link of the product?

OK, I couldn't resist..here's a sneak peak of an HMT I just ordered, it's an unused NOS so it cost a little more but still dirt cheap. Sorta reminds me of the Panerai I just got, and that's a handwinder too. I'll show it on the wrist as soon as it comes in. Quite the watch day today...(-;
Wasn't my intention lol.
Is that light play on the dial, or is it patterned? It’s nice !
@StainlessOnly The middle just inside the hour indicators has a swirl texture, looks really nice in natural light. Unfortunately I work nights and sleep mornings, I rarely have time to see it lol.
