------>"Ceci n'est pas une ORIS."<----- A Mumbai Special from my early collection days and I added the gold mesh bracelet. If you're new to collecting and don't know what a Mumbai Special is, I recommend you research it for a few minutes to get the gist.

Beautiful! Is this one of the ones you polished back to pristine condition? I love the lugs!

WOW! She's a beauty!! The indices, mesh bracelet and more than anything for me are the lugs, they look amazing! Great package! Have a good day Eric.

Nope, I bought it like that. If you don't know what a Mumbai Special is, be aware. They are marketed as genuine but are not, they are re-dialed and often have different movements in them, in this case, an FHF (ST) 96.

That said, it is a looker with the highly polished gold tone case and green dial, IMO. Thanks!

Thanks, I agree. I just wish it was genuine. Have a great day too! 馃憤

I think, I have come across Mumbai Specials, passing themselves of as Seiko. Some of them look interesting from a distance.. and that's where I decided to keep them.. at a distance.

That said.. your's does look good Eric, but do my eyes deceive me or are the word "Swiss" and "Made" two different sizes?

Distortion from the domed crystal. BUT STILL A LIE

Very classic and elegant 馃敟
