No amount of euphemisims can disguise today’s 1980s effort. It is what it is, cheap ‘n’ cheerful, Indian-made through and through and running on their 17j HMT 1802/0231A, itself a barely modified version of the same Citizen calibre, so it goes well enough.

Hindustan Machine Tools Ltd closed their watch production business in 2016, but having been made in their Bangalore factory, at least these things can’t be accused of being “Bombay Specials”.
