Hamilton Khaki Pilot Chronograph Review

Hamilton Khaki Pilot Chronograph Banner

Several weeks ago, we reviewed Hamilton Khaki Pilot. It is a nice and solid pilot watch made by a well-known military watch company called Hamilton. Hamilton was an official supplier to US army during WWII. If you are looking for pure blood military watch, Hamilton is a good choice.

Hamilton Khaki Pilot is good enough to tell you the time. If you like Hamilton Khaki Pilot design but look for timer function, Hamilton Khaki Pilot Chronograph is your choice.

Appearance

The case is polished stainless steel. The bezel is fixed, it doesn’t offer un-directional bezel or tachymetre bezel. Maybe the watch designer wanted to keep the watch simple and tidy. There are two options for band, stainless steel or leather. The dial is either black or silver, depending on the model.

Hamilton Khaki Pilot Chronograph Black Dial

The minute and hour hands and the Arabic number markers are polished stainless steel with luminous material. The top of second hand is red so that the second hand won’t mix up with hour or minute hands.

Hamilton Khaki Pilot Chronograph Silver Dial

Date display is at 6 o’clock position, the same location as one of the chronograph sub-dial. The crystal is scratch resistance sapphire, it is a standard configuration for luxury watch. The case is 16mm thick, it is quite thick and heavy. Indeed, thick and heavy is automatic chronograph “characteristic”. If you are looking for light and thin chronograph, you have a look at quartz movement chronograph instead.

Hamilton is under Swatch Group, the movement is Swiss automatic. Swatch Group is really doing good job in recent years. Swatch Group offers affordable automatic watch to watch lovers. Owning an automatic chronograph is not a dream anymore.

Chronograph

The location for sub-dial displays is standard without any surprise. You are not looking for surprise if you are finding a classic pilot watch, aren’t you? 60 seconds sub-dial display is at 9 o’clock, 30 minute sub-dial display is at 3 o’clock and a smaller 12 hour sub-dial display is at 6 o’clock. It offers down to 1/10 seconds chronograph display. This is good for time measuring that highly precise is required.

Recommendation

The selection for which Hamilton Khaki Pilot Chronograph model is basically a choice for dial color and band material. Stainless steel band or leather band is personal option. Go your personal favorite band material.

For the dial color, personally, I prefer black dial than silver dial as the silver color is somehow similar to stainless steel hands color. I usually try to avoid watches with similar hand color and dial color that makes reading time more difficult.
