For HMT watches, the time is up as the company has been shut down after continuing losses. Pt Jawaharlal Nehru had inaugurated the wrist watch plant but from today, it will be a collector's item. In fact, the closure has prompted many customers to buy it as a memento.
For more than 50 years, the iconic HMT watch has invoked different emotions for different people. For many, it was a reward promised for passing an exam and for others, it was the perfect wedding gift. Unfortunately, after timekeeping to the nation for 53 years, the 'Desh ki Dhadkan' has lost to changing times.
