Hamilton Khaki Pilot Review

After reviewing some Timex Military Watches last month, a reader sent me an email that he loves the pilot watch. He asked us if we could review other brand’s pilot watches. How’s about Hamilton Khaki Pilot? Hey, wait a minute, why Hamilton?

Hamilton is well-known for military watches as it was the official supplier to US army during World War II. Hamilton designers are doing good job to design fashionable military watches. Hamilton watches are popular as they are affordable, and the quality of Hamilton watches are extraordinary. You can own a Hamilton Khaki automatic watch with less than a thousand dollar (USD).

Movement may be one of the factor for the selection. Time is very accurate for quartz movement. Basically, you don’t need to adjust the quartz watch until you change the battery. However, for automatic watch, +/- within 5 seconds per day is normal. You may need to adjust the time, in case you need accuracy, every alter time. So, why automatic? It is a perfection of craftsmanship.

Case Size

Hamilton Khaki Pilot H64785835 and Hamilton Khaki Pilot H64715535 are 46mm while Hamilton Khaki Pilot H64611555 and Hamilton Khaki Pilot H64611135 are 42mm. The choosing of the case size may be personal preference. 46mm may not be suitable for small wrist, however.
