The second major watch collection from India-based Bangalore Watch Company is the MACH 1, which comes in a few flavors (and first debuted on aBlogtoWatch here). The watches are directly inspired by the brand founder’s childhood interest in the IAF (Indian Air Force), as well as the MiG 21 Type 77 planes which apparently were the cornerstone of the IAF’s fighter plane arsenal for 50 years during 1963 all the way until 2013. To celebrate 50 years of the MiG 21 Type 77, Bangalore Watch Company created this handsome and affordably priced MACH 1 collection.
The “MACH 1” names comes from the fact that the MiG 21 Type 77 was the first supersonic plane in service for the IAF. The MACH 1 comes in both “Civilian” (natural brushed steel case) and “Aviator” (black PVD-coated steel) flavors. Each of the watches further comes with two dial options that differ only in the style of hour marker, which on one version uses traditional Arabic hour numerals, and on the other uses Arabic numeral minute indicators as the hour markers. Without being able to choose one or the other dial — Bangalore Watch Company seems to simply produce both versions, allowing consumers to select which they prefer — frankly, I can’t say which is better, as it is a matter of personal taste.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
