What happens when a brand dies? HMT Watches, India’s government owned watch company sold more than a 100 million watches before it shut its factories in 2016. It was once a symbol of a rapidly industrializing India, but what is the legacy it leaves behind today?
The defunct Indian brand of HMT Watches stands alone in watchmaking history for valid reasons. For one, few other companies can speak of leaving behind a colony of unemployed workers so large, it might overshadow an African war zone. That is to imply how vast the empire of HMT (Hindustan Machine Tools) Watches once was.

Reading this makes me sari.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Not a shocker here. The only HMT I ever saw or had
was won at an auction here at WatchLards. It was so sketchy I fucked up the crystal just to see if I could buff it out. No dice, threw it away. So Sari.
