Hey Hari , Thats a coincidence , but I was there earlier, evening i think 24 th(it was raining) I barely had the time to visit the unity building showroom, and as you stated they did not have any mech watches, I guess they are waiting for the increase in price probably from 1st oct. Bellary road did have a few mech watches , but i did not want to miss my flight , so I skipped . I think they are getting watches from all closed units to bangalore , and then retail or maybe auction.The Bangalore Unity Buildings watch scene:
I am in Bangalore at the moment. I had the morning free today, so I decided to go to Unity buildings which is quite a short distance from my hotel. I landed there early at around 9:45 and found that the HMT showroom was closed, so was Lakshmi Times (a shop bang opposite the HMT showroom). Some other watch shops just adjacent to the HMT outlet had just then opened, and the staff were cleaning the shop. I entered and discovered that this shop had a full counter devoted to HMTs, I browsed through their stock and selected a couple of pieces and bought them. By the time I finished it was 10:30 and the HMT outlet had also opened
HMT showroom at Unity:
They were all sold out of handwinder watches, but they did have a good stock of the supreme automatics.
Lakshmi times opp was still closed.
see how close these shops are:
After chatting for a small while with the HMT staff, I went on to the stationery market (another hobby of mine). On the way back, I decided to take my chances and return to Unity bldgs to see if Lakshmi Times was open, and yes it was:
Bought a couple of watches from him.
The owner Mr. Satyanarayana:
a poor pic of the occupants of Unity Buildings
True and its somebody else who's getting the icing due to all this confusion , Pilot black selling for Rs.9999 on snapdeal !! At first I thought it was a misprint but i guess its not. all other mech on flipkart / snapdeal are for 5K-6K ... ouch!!! Hope nobody falls for these.I was there on the 23rd morning. God alone knows the plans of HMT, it is beyond my comprehension... Earlier it was that the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing, now even the left hand's thumb does not know what the left hand's forefinger is upto.
Hey Prashant, Its a beautiful watch. Congratulations on a nice find,This a Bangalore produce?Thank you Hari for posting these images. I fell in love with this watch after looking at your photographs and finally got this watch recently. Thanks to you and thanks a lot

Raami fantastic finds , I missed a beat on seeing PRAVEEN's dial, I think I have a pramod lying around, will try to post a pic if i find it.
Thank you Hari Sir . Who had found the dial, Thanks to him it was a good hunt, Hari Sir, how do I send you email?, Thankswonderful find. congrats!
I really like these simple little watches, very good value for money, they also have a timeless charm about them (no pun intended). Just don't expect Seiko build quality and you'll truly be able to appreciate them.
