Bangalore Watch Company (hereafter referred to as BWC, because typing is hard), was founded by husband-wife duo Nirupesh Joshi and Mercy Amalraj. The two left successful tech careers behind after falling in love with watches and returned to their native India to start the brand in 2017. They settled in Bangalore—India’s tech-hub and former home of HMT Watches, perhaps the country’s best-known brand. But BWC has aims to change that. Their first release was a classically designed dress watch, the Renaissance, and they’ve followed that up with the MACH 1 pilot watch, which celebrates the Indian Air Force’s first supersonic jet, the MiG 21 Type 77. The MiG served the IAF for 50 years from 1963-2013 and the watch does a beautiful job of commemorating its legacy.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
