Thanks for that description, seems so incredibly complicated but in the scheme of thing a this was probably the least of their worries.
The pilot was a legitimate model offered by HMT. But it had nothing to do with the Indian Air Force. In the last year or two HMT has also offered it in some bright dial colours. I think the same holds true for the JAWAN (infantryman, in Hindi).
EBAY HMTs WITH BROADARROW MARKINGS
It is safest to assume that ALL HMTs, barring none, offered on ebay as military watches with broadarrow markings are fakes. The watch model in my picture is the only known instance of HMT having supplied watches to the Indian armed forces. Even these are probably rattling about in 70 year old pilots' bedside drawers. So, unfortunately, there are no genuine 'military' HMTs to be had for 4.99
