Hammy Birfday to Me!!

Hammy Birfday to Me!!

Postby artman » April 23rd 2017, 6:12pm

Hot dayam today I turn 50! For this special day my wife bought me the Hamilton Khaki Field King Auto (H64466133) over the weekend and it’s frickn awesome.
Image

Based on the ETA 2834-2, Hamilton now calls this movement the Caliber H-40 with the fancy H cutout on the rotar. Supposedly this newer edition now has 80 hours of power reserve, which is badass if it’s for real. At 40mm wide and only 12mm thick this is perfect size for me. I also dig the sapphire crystal and the winder is silky smooth. And one of the coolest things is how the day date snaps to the next day right at midnight.

I’ve actually been lusting after this Hammy for quite awhile so it feels great to finally get one on my wrist without having to give it back. I know, we probably paid more than if we had purchased it online, but it doesn’t matter. I figured since I kept trying this one on at the AD I might as well support our local vendor.

Anyway, thanks for allowing me to share! It is a Hammy day!!

That's a serious birthday gift! Hope your birthday was great, artie. Can't go wrong with a Khaki.

Happy birthday youngster. Congrats on the Hammy. Do 50 year olds in Guam get a bunch of junk from the AARP too?

I've always liked the day and date at 12 on that watch; what a cool gift for your 50th.

Many many more happy healthies, man!
