Hamilton Khaki UTC Review

Hamilton Khaki UTC Review

Postby sweetb » October 21st 2014, 11:06am

Let's get something straight . . . I'm a tool watch guy. I like my chunky diver watches, preferably in the 43 mm to 46 mm size range. My profession does not demand the daily use of a suit, dress shirt or tie!

That being said, even “tool watch” guys need a watch that can compliment a tuxedo, business suit or a sport coat when the occasion demands it. The watch that I would highly recommend is the Hamilton Khaki UTC (reference # H77505535) aka Skymaster. This watch is beautifully detailed and finished, is 300 meters water resistant and anti-magnetic.

Other details include:

Movement: Automatic, ETA 2893-2, Swiss Made
Functions: Hours, minutes, seconds, date, second time zone (UTC/GMT)
Power reserve: 42 hours
Case material: Stainless steel
Bezel material: Stainless steel
Case shape: Round
Bezel shape: Round
Case size: 42.00 mm
Lug width: 22 mm
Case height: 12.5 mm
Dial: Off-white / Black
Numerals: Arabic
Hands: Steel
Water resistance: 300 meters
Strap: Leather
Crystal: Domed Sapphire
Case back: screw down, non see-through

The performance of this watch is impressive. It has lost 1 second in 24 hours. I recommend the black face on leather for a look that can be worn anywhere.

Short, to the point, meat and potatoes, cool. Enjoyed the review.
Bet those Swiss Legend owners are so happy their "Sapphitek" crystals have a 10-year warranty. Oh, wait...

Nicely done. Wouldn't consider that a big watch by any measure.

The GMT function is tastefully done, very discreet! Love the off white dial lettering!

Find it a good bracelet and I would give it a home!

Nice review.

A very nice Hammy, with a swell write-up. And it makes my dick swell, too!

Good looking watch. Got any shots of the caseback? Hamilton has some unique ones on some models.
