Monday blues with WOTD, Hedge & Golay Shreeshyla, 17J hand-wound mechanical watch.
This company was based out of Bangalore. They made a great effort to make watches indigenously by sending its employees to Switzerland for knowledge transfer and importing state-of-art machinery. However, let down by the license raj system (partly) that led to its demise around 1978. There were other issues too, you can read them here and here.
Note: It is not 1:50 PM yet. I adjusted the time for aesthetics purposes.
