This watch is made my one of the India's Leading watch manufacturer, HMT (Hindustan Machine tools).HMT (Hindustan machine tools) is a Public Sector conglomerate (government owned) company established in early 50s, is involved in various manufacturing activities, Like Machine Tools, Tractors, etc. and of course watches. They started their watch manufacturing activity in 1962, in technical assistance from Citizen of Japan, and they still use same technology to produce watches, their mechanical hand wound watches have Citizen caliber 0201 movement and mechanical auto uses Citizen Caliber 6500 movements. which have proved them selves in hostile conditions of India, for decades Hmt was a leader in watch manufacturing in India, with over 70% share. they have sold millions of watches in hundreds of designs, they have suffered badly from the quartz wave.
Wonder ful thing is that they manufacture their own movements in house.
