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.
