Mechanical wind up "Citizen" movement with stainless steel case fitted with quality leather NATO strap. No box or papers.

This Series ll military watch has genuine Indian Defence Ministry references on the back. The watch is in exceptional condition and I recommend that you look at the HD photos which form the majority of the description.

It is a myth that these watches were worn by British Armed Forces as they had left India following Independence in 1947. The HMT Bangalore watch factory was opened in 1961 with technical assistance from Citizen! Sadly HMT watch operations have or are being phased out as of last year. I know that until recently "HMT" watches were on sale in Cyprus. These wouldn't have been correct military issue unless they were used.

The watch has a quality leather NATO strap fitting a 20.5cm wrist. The 17 jewel anti-shock movement has been cleaned and serviced and is running well, keeping reasonable time for a 40 year old watch. The face has luminous Arabic numerals and Obelisk hands plus sweep second hand. There are no 'Seconds' numerals as in the Series l but larger 'Hour' ones. Both glass and face appear unmarked.

Shipped Colissimo International Insured & Signed For.

    El reloj funciona, atrasa -3 min/24hs. - La aguja horaria interfiere con la de segundos entre las 5 y las 7,con lo cual se para el segundero (este detalle no lo expone en su descripción de venta).

    Response by seller
    Siento mucho escuchar a este. El reloj tomó dos semanas para ir de Francia a España y me pregunto si no reciben un shock. Era de 12 días en su país antes de que sea entregado a usted. Esto podría haber causado los problemas con las agujas y también hizo el reloj ir un poco más lento.

    Los 586 K ha sido probado durante 24 horas antes de que se envían y se pasó como OK para un reloj de más de 70 años de edad. Como sospecho que usted sabe, usted puede quitar fácilmente el cristal para ajustar las agujas.

    No habría sido posible saber qué ocurriría durante el embarque y yo trate de asegurarse de que los relojes me enviar están muy bien embalados.
