The quality of this Rajat's back seemed to be even better then on the smaller Dipti and Pankaj. Interestingly all hmt handwinds have snap-on cases while this one is a screwed back with standard slots. Obviously hmt invests a bit more in their screwed backs, they all looked a bit better then the snap-on backs. Maybe there is a simple physical reason for this: it is easier to stamp an inscription in a thicker metal sheet then in a thinner back and thus the writing looks nicer. Again I have (not yet) any idea how to read those hmt serial numbers, if you know, please mail me, thank you. And now the big moment: how does the Automatic hmt movement look like? I had so far only seen handwinds... the tensions raises...
