Hello, today I’m doing an Hamilton H77616533 review. I recently took a look at the best automatic watches for men which sadly this watch couldn’t make it into as it was over the budget I’d set for the watches in the article. It is however still one of the most popular Hamilton watches going even if it does often set you back over £1000, so I wanted to feature it on the site today.

Watch Review

Intro

The Hamilton watch company is a brand that’s owned by the massive Swatch group. They were originally an American storied watch design and manufacturing company that was incorporated in 1892 and produced their first watch in 1893. These days they produce many stunning Swiss made watches including this Khaki model that we’re reviewing today.

Dial & Case Design

This model has a very interesting dial design, they’ve somehow managed to cram a lot of information on to the dial, without giving it this busy feel. The hour and minute hands seem a little small but they still do the job. The dial has a good use of lume on the hour markers and hands to make this watch easy to read in dim lit conditions which is useful. I like the day & date display on the left hand side of the watch which is a little different to the ordinary. You’ll notice the primary crown and pushers of the watch are also positioned on the left side of the casing for easy access even when wearing gloves. The casing itself is made of a surgical stainless steel.

Type Of Crystal

Protecting the dial we have a high quality synthetic sapphire crystal glass. This glass has a Mohs hardness rating of 9 and gives you some of the best scratch resistance available on a watch. Exactly you what you would expect to find in a luxury Hamilton watches like this.

Watch Movement

At the heart of the watch we find a Valjoux 7750 Swiss automatic movement. It’s a mechanical movement with automatic winding, rotor mounted on ball bearing, uni-directional winding, hack mechanism, and a 42 hour power reserve. The movements has a 28,800 BPH which is pretty impressive as well. This is a highly accurate high quality Swiss automatic movement that I’d be extremely pleased to have.

Watch Size

Everything is fairly standard when it comes to the sizing of this Hamilton watch. The casing diameter is 44mm and the thickness is 16mm. I guess you could say it will have a slightly chunky feel at 16mm but nothing too over the top in my opinion.

Strap

The strap is made of an ultra comfortable thick, stitched brown genuine leather that measures 22mm wide. This is a standard size that suits the overall size of the watch very nicely. The strap fastens using a typical buckle style clasp.

Extra features

A key extra feature of the watch is the semi-exposed caseback that you can see in the picture below. It’s not something you often find on watches, the semi-exposed style that is, it’s often either fully covered, or fully exposed so this is something a little different and interesting.

Water Resistance Rating

The water resistance level of this watch is 100m, this is suitable for this style of watch in my opinion. A rating of 100m / 10 Bar / 300ft makes this watch suitable for recreational surfing, swimming, snorkeling, sailing and water sports.

My Final Thoughts On This Hamilton H77616533 Review:

The Hamilton H77616533 is another brilliant example of the stunning timepieces that the Hamilton brand are able to create. As I said earlier on, it’s a shame this model couldn’t make it into our best watches under £1000 list as it was above that limit, but many other Hamilton watches did going to show how popular the Hamilton brand it.

After looking into the watch design, quality, features, and pricing this watch received an 9/10 from us at The Watch Blog.
