Mumbai (Bombay) 1st Trip Travel Report

Dear All

This trip to Mumbai - Bombay is the old colonial name, like Chennai is the new name for Madras - was actually not primarily about watches.
I had earlier helped a large Swiss company to setup an office in Mumbai and only due to the fact, that I had to travel one day earlier (no daily flights from Bangkok to Mumbai) I was able to do some watch hunting in Mumbai.
The last day of my trip was actually also planned for watch hunting, but then a severe food poisoning crossed my plans to acquire some HMT (Hindustan Machinery and Tools) watches. HMT Watches contain a Miyota movement manufactured under Citizen license. I learned about HMT Watches from Paul Delury's interesting article "Something A Little Different".
I will have to travel to Mumbai again pretty soon, so stay tuned for additional trip report in which I can hopefully present some HMT "trophies".

This trip's pictures are ordered chronologically by the way and not separated as watch and non-watch pictures like in the Hong Kong trip reports.

I hope you enjoy the tour!

Best regards
