[Hamilton Khaki Pilot] A “Budget” Automatic

[Hamilton Khaki Pilot] A “Budget” Automatic

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?


buckets1987

$599 on Jomashop :)

That’s some nice looking lume


buckets1987

It’s actually just the color of it! The lume is your typical green, but it still looks great in the dark :)


Never_Nine

It’s bright then! Makes it an interesting piece


buckets1987

Thank you! It’s kind of loud, but tasteful. Just my style.

Sick piece, what's that fire? Bullets? Nice


buckets1987

Figured I’d snap a pic of a semi automatic and an automatic side by side ;)

Never saw this colorway before. Looks cool!


buckets1987

Thank you very much!

That's a good looking watch!


buckets1987

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.


buckets1987

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.


buckets1987

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 :(
