A couple of reasons for wearing this “Titus  - one as a reminder of my enthusiastic if naïve newbie self, but mainly as an entreaty to today’s newbies to be wary of these must-have bargains from India (for example) unless you’ve done your homework and have then thought long and hard about it. I hadn’t, and didn’t.

Unfortunately the image of today’s effort doesn't, indeed couldn't, do proper justice to the "rare and original" dial which is a rather fetching, not to say unusual, high gloss shade of olive green/sludge brown. Inside is a rough-looking, but creatively-decorated, 17j FHF/ST 96N which against all odds runs well enough whenever asked, which admittedly is almost never.

I don’t dispose of any watch and this Bombay Special was one of these embarrassing tenners which I’ll never get back, although nowadays I’ve mostly got over that.

I'll give this one a run-out today. This is one of my favourites: albeit modest, it loses a couple of minutes a day and therefore gives me the false impression that my daily idling into my rapidly approaching dotage is actually lasting a bit longer than it actually is.
