My HMT watches

HMT Tarun: Tarun is the Hindi word for Youth and this watch is meant, I suppose, for the very young watch users. I bought this watch for a friend and a fellow WIS.

The Tarun with a new Janata that I bought today, again for a fellow WIS:

This Janata has a pressfit case back, my other art deco Janata has a screw back, so I guess it depends on what case stocks HMT has at hand while assembling the watches.

Hey, I actually found an HMT I like. The modern, almost bauhaus look here is really nicely done for a dress watch in this price range. If the Janata were just in a bit more modern font like the rest, it would be perfect. But still, quite nice.
I don't have something against handwritten script, it's the fact that it's out of character for the rest of the watch. They chose a bold design statement with those ultra modern numerals and minimalist case...and then threw it out the window in order to keep their more "classic" proprietary Janata font. I can understand why, it just isn't a cohesive aesthetic move. Sort jumps out at my eye like a sore thumb.

I agree that the script works much better on the pilot, and it works really, really well on Pankaj.
