I Snagged another Hammy...

Postby Thunder1 » June 4th 2018, 4:57pm

Well, I was fishing at the 'bay late last week..A big one slipped away(an Oris Big Pilot Cal. 111), but I made up for it w/ this baby..I've had my eye on them for quite some time now..properly referred to as a Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Chrono, ref # H77706553..this is a big, tall, heavy sucker...the SS case measures 44mm..the movement is Hammy's version of the Valjoux 7750(w/ a 60 hr. power reserve)..the previous owner was a motivated seller, letting it go for $637.77..the top of the case does have a few minor scratches & swivels, but nothing a little elbow grease & simichrome can't fix..have been wearing it since around noon today..initial impressions are 1)this is a tall, heavy watch that is probably not the best candidate for dress wear, and 2)in conjunction w/ the wide width of the silver dial, the long, slender blued hands & black Arabic numerals combine to make it extremely easy to read..there is no lume, though...so far so good!!…

What a beauty, with the H-21, to boot. Looks like it's right outta the box, too. The strap looks comfortable too. Good job; you got a steal, man.

I would rather be seen wearing an Invicta than a Hublot - at least I can explain away the Invicta.

Truly a great looking watch and at a damned nice price.

Cool movement. Cool blue hands. Cool dial layout. I love everything about that one.

Very retro styling using modern materials.
I love it.

Spot on. I've never seen that model before; wish I had!

That's really fucking beautiful, Mr. T!
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
