No.3 Sneak Preview

Over the years many people have written to me about my skeleton watches. Some have inquired if I have a uniquely Indian watch. Some have mentioned that even 41mm is quite large for their wrists. Many have requested me to make something a little more accessible.

Well, No.3 is an answer to all these requests! It is based on the venerable HMT hand wound 020 movement (which is basically a license built Citizen 0201). One feature of this movement is that it has direct centre seconds. So you get a unique layout of the train and none of the infamous second hand slop. Here are some pictures of the skeletonised movement (minute wheel is yet to be done).

This movement will have blued steel hands and will be housed in a 36mm stainless steel case with sapphire crystals front and back. Stay tuned :-)
