    Titan mechanicals: anyone know owt?

    A colleague I was working with today had a rather plain old fashioned looking watch which naturally caught my eye. It was, despite its styling, new, and mechanical. And quite thin. I've managed to find one picture online of it:

    from here: http://www.brittons-watches.co.uk/wa...ents_titan.htm

    42 isn't very much and I can spot the word India on the dial. Will that be an HMT movement in there? I'm presuming it must be a handwind.

    When I google for more Titan watches, the styles are far more like cheaper Fossils.

    Anyone know anything more?

    Didn't know they were doing a mechanical. Mostly they are known among us nerds for the "Titan Edge" which they claim to be the thinnest watch in current production (I believe some are under 4mm.) Wikipedia says Titan are now the 5th largest watch manufacturer in the world (but that's wiki, easily tweaked) - believable in the case that India is 1.5 Billion people. I don't think HMT makes a very thin mechanical movement, but Titan may have licensed it from someone else. Very interesting!

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Came across a thread Elsewhere on Titan. Said an auto had an 9015 and the handwind a 6T33, a movement I had never before heard of.

    The auto was making the most of the movement's thinness
