At the bottom of the article, I’ll show you some of my recommended places to buy this watch from
I’ve always been quite the fan of Hamilton watches so I’m initially a little biased as I am often drawn to the designs built by this brand. I really liked how easy the display is to read, the use of a day and date display, plus the slim design of the seconds hand.
It’s also worth noting that powering the watch is a high quality Swiss made automatic movement, I tend to opt for automatic watches when available, and I love the fact you can take a look at this movement working away through the exhibition style caseback.
All in all, I think if you’re in the range for a watch under £500 then an automatic timepiece from a brand such as Hamilton isn’t a bad route to head down at all.
The dial on this Hamilton watch is very easy to read. The bold white Arabic numeral hour markers stand out against the black dial, with a coating of lume for better visibility in dim lit conditions. You’ll also spot the day and date calendar at the top of the dial, this is quite a popular feature lately.
It’s not something many people would necessarily notice at first, but I have to say I like the design of the seconds hand.
At the heart of this Hamilton watch is a Hamilton caliber H-40 movement. This is a Swiss made 25 jewel design that has a BPH of 21,600 and provides accurate timekeeping. As it’s an automatic self winding movement, this watch doesn’t require a battery.
Type of glass
Protecting the front of the timepiece is a sapphire crystal glass lens. At this sort of price range you start seeing these higher quality lenses so I’m pleased to see Hamilton have followed suit for this model.
Sapphire glass provides you with a very good level of scratch protection with a Mohs hardness rating of 9.
You do still need to be careful not to drop your watch, as sapphire doesn’t stand up too well when it comes to shattering.
Protecting the rear of the watch is another sapphire crystal glass lens, this allows you to peer in a view the automatic movement whilst it’s working away.
Casing & Size
They’ve stuck with the popular 40mm size for this men’s Hamilton watch. The casing is made of stainless steel with a thickness of 11mm. Whilst personally I prefer these larger 40mm casings, it is something you’d need to consider before purchasing the watch.
As I mentioned earlier on, within the dial of this Hamilton watch is a day and date calendar display. The day of the week is displayed right at the top of the dial with the actual date displayed nice and neatly below it. It uses black numbering on a white background which works well to stand out on the dial.
Watch strap and clasp
The strap of this Khaki King watch is made of a soft genuine leather in a brown croco embossed finish with light contrast stitching. The width of this strap is 20mm which is fairly standard considering the size of the casing. The strap itself fastens with a buckle style clasp.
The water resistance rating is an impressive 50m also known as 5ATM. A 50m water resistance makes it suitable for everyday use as it is splash/rain resistance.
