The Hamilton Khaki Pilot Quartz H64611555 Mens Watch is a big and simple to read watch. I really be glad about that the greater part of the watch’s face is devoted to large simple to read hands and indicators. The silver backdrop is quite dramatic. The brushed silver has an almost pearlescent quality. The inner index has painted hour numbers with 30 and 15-minute dashes. These are in a comparatively small font, but are easy enough to read. The main index utilizes raised numbers representing the seconds/minutes. The numbers are raised about a millimeter above the silver background and are completed with a jagged brushed finish giving these indicators plenty of disparity compared to the silver background. These minute/second indicators really make this watch special. The day and date indicators are black text on a white background and are cut into the primary and secondary indexes at the 12 and 6 positions. At the 12 position is the prerequisite pilot’s triangle indicator without looking compressed. The outer index has tick marks for the minutes and seconds, which I believe are decorated onto the silver backdrop.
The Hamilton Khaki Pilot Quartz H64611555 Mens Watch, complement the pilot style watch and reach deep into the face making total use of the space provided. The hour hand is skeletonised at the tip allowing an easy view of the date window and inner hour index indicators, and the body of the hand is filled with a generous portion of Superluminova. The minute hand is skeletonised in the body of the hand, with the tip filled with Superluminova. The second hand is a long arrow with no luminous substance applied. The luminous substance works well and after many hours on my nightstand I am still able to make out the time, though, a bit of lumination at the 12 position would be helpful for orientation in low light conditions.
The Hamilton Khaki Pilot Quartz H64611555 Mens Watch has an ETA 2834-2 movement. Other than the Hamilton logo engraved on the rotor, there is nothing special about it. Plain Jane, but functional. After owning two variants of the day/date ETA movement, I have to say that I like the accuracy, the ability to hand wind, and the snappiness of the day/date indicator changes exactly at midnight. An interesting and unexpected feature was the “H” buckle used on the strap. The “H” buckle design both looks sharp and works well on this strap.
You really cannot go wrong with The Hamilton Jazzmaster Men’s Watch as an everyday-wear watch. At 42mm in width, it is a large watch for the wrist, definitely towards the top of the scale of what is wearable for all, but not overpowering.
Bottom line: The New Hamilton Watches gives the wearer the feel of the vintage aviators. An essential piece every pilot must have and vouch by its functions and form.
