HAMILTON JAZZMASTER SEAVIEW CHRONO QUARTZ (H37512731).

I've wanted a new quartz chrono for a long time that wasn't a Seiko. Nothing against that brand, but my wife said I have too many Seikos! I almost bit at the Dan Henry 1964, but I don't feel comfortable buying things that I can't try on first. Fast forward to last night, I was strolling by the watch section at DFS and BANG! Flash sale on this Hammy.

At 44mm it is pushing the limits of what I can comfortably fit on my wrist. I dig the sapphire crystal, the nice mix of brushed and polished finishing and the snappy chrono but not sure about the strap though. The salesman said it was leather. The Hamilton website says it's leather, but it feels suspiciously like soft rubber.

Anyway, thanks for reading. Cheers!

Very nice, Artie. For a chrono, that dial is surprisingly clean.

fantastic purchase. I like it a lot and being a Hamilton makes it even better to me. Quartz is fine, it means not having to wave your arm around like a spastic geek aviator.

I like it - simple and clean, with nothing redundant. Well, that's excluding a few mm of the diameter - it really wouldn't hurt Hamilton to make it 3-4mm smaller. The DH 1964 is pretty much the only DH that doesn't sing to me, and that's due to the useless 24h subdial (as is the case with anything featuring the Seiko VK64).

Absolutely killer dial; this is why we need watch forums - stock photos never show nuances of a watch. Ya gotta see 'em like shown here (and not lying on a rock or on top of a reprinted 1970 issue of Thor, but what the hey).

I have a couple of older quartz Hamiltons (one a Jazzmaster) and I really like them. Hope you experience the same level of satisfaction.
I bought a dive watch from them that literally had “dive” in the name. The instructions said not to dive with it - it was only meant to LOOK like a dive watch. It was also fast by more that a minute per day. Garbage. Never again. - IWG buyer on Reddit

Wow. Dang. That's really a fucking cool watch, arty. The hour markers make me want to slam my hammy!

Thanks for the kind words. After a full day on my wrist I must say I am digging it a lot. I got a great deal on a sweet-ass watch and I'm glad to be able to share my joy with all you crazy fucks. And I mean that in the best possible way.

Great watch and not often seen. Shave off a couple mm and it'd be perfect.

Very cool- the lugs are even a modern take on a throwback and the dial is great.

I think the strap is a DiModell rubberized leather strap and they are OEM for lots of divers. I got one on a Sector diver and I have been buying them ever since (once Barzini told me what it was and where to find it). Waiting for orange to come out for my PO- $750 for Omega's which is admittedly nicer, I think they use silicone, but it ain't $695 nicer. Cod could tell us what Omega's is, I believe I've seen the black one with the orange stitching parked on his PO.

Holy crap I never knew rubberized leather straps were a real thing! Had to google and found this https://www.watchobsession.co.uk/collec ... ell-straps. Cool stuff.

They look great, they're comfortable and last a long time. I order straight from their website.

Rubberized leather straps are the bomb. I have one old watch with a similar strap and yeah, it looks leather but felt like rubber, and then, well, figured it out. I realize I'm one of the few that prefers rubber/silicone to bracelets or leather, but hey, I like Hydrox better than Oreos, too.
