[Hamilton Khaki Pilot] A “Budget” Automatic
By - buckets1987
This is my first foray into “big boy watches”, as it were. This is a special “Air Zermatt” edition that Hamilton released. The Air Zermatt is a Swiss flight school and air rescue team. I especially like the Air Zermatt logo on the second hand. I fell in love with this watch after seeing it on Interstellar, and when I found out that they had this special blue edition, I couldn’t help myself. This is my first Swiss watch, and also my first automatic watch, and I couldn’t be happier with it. The only gripe I have is the thick, stiff leather band, but I suspect that it’ll break in nicely with time.
That's awesome, how much did you pay for it?
$599 on Jomashop :)
That’s some nice looking lume
It’s actually just the color of it! The lume is your typical green, but it still looks great in the dark :)
It’s bright then! Makes it an interesting piece
Thank you! It’s kind of loud, but tasteful. Just my style.
Sick piece, what's that fire? Bullets? Nice
Figured I’d snap a pic of a semi automatic and an automatic side by side ;)
Never saw this colorway before. Looks cool!
Thank you very much!
That's a good looking watch!
Thank you! This was actually my gift to myself for quitting smoking. I realized that there are a lot of nice things I can afford if I don’t smoke haha.
Looks very cool, a nice twist of the standard one. Very very cool!
Nice watch. Great shot.
Much appreciated! I don’t care about the watch as much as I care about the photo, honestly. Thanks for the compliment :)
Great photo. Hamilton puts out some lovely watches and I like the day-date complication.
How well does it keep the time? Unfortunately the one I had a decade or so ago wouldn't keep time at all. Sent it in for service twice before ultimately getting my $ back.
Thank you! It seems to be keeping time perfectly. I always check it with my phone and I haven’t noticed a real loss or gain
Wow, nice pic! I've been wanting this watch but it's too big for me :(
Ooooh. Daddy like.
