Hamilton Watches - History and Hollywood

Hamilton watches have been in continuous production since the late 1800s. The company has maintained the same level of quality throughout the past century, and they are pushing into the 21st century with new ideas about what a wristwatch can be. The unusual sophisticated designs of the Hamilton line of watches offer accurate timekeeping in an elegant, unique package.

A Proud History

Early in the 1900s Hamilton was chosen as the wristwatch supplier for the American armed forces. Hamilton watches have been on the wrists of servicemen during both World Wars and every other conflict that the United States has entered into over the last hundred years. Accuracy and dependability can mean the difference between life and death for military personnel, and Hamilton takes that responsibility seriously. If the military can trust a Hamilton watch to be accurate in any situation, the typical consumer can trust the quality of Hamilton watches for the struggles of every day living.

An Eye Toward Innovation

Hamilton is more than a durable, accurate military timepiece. The Hamilton watch company has been at the forefront of watch technology since the 1950s. The Hamilton Ventura watch was the first ever battery operated wristwatch, and it caused a sensation in the world of timepieces. They were the first company to produce a digital wristwatch in 1970, and they have never stopped looking for new improvements to their watches. Hamilton is determined to stay in the forefront of technology as well as design.

Sophisticated Style

The unique styles of Hamilton watches have made them the perfect accessory for Hollywood and television productions. Many popular movies have featured characters wearing Hamilton watches. Costume designers are drawn to the understated sophistication of Hamilton. There are several shapes and designs that make these watches unique without making them seem like a novelty. Whether you choose a traditional analog watch that brings back the nostalgia of the 1950s or you prefer something that looks like it could belong in the next century, there are Hamilton watches to fit everyone's style. The ability of Hamilton to marry fashionable form with precision function makes them one of the premiere watch companies in the United States, the UK, and around the world.

Bottom line: although I have only had this watch for about ten days, I am very pleased with the overall quality, style, comfort and function. I would definitely recommend this watch to others after an understated, simple, durable analogue watch. I have spent the last five years wearing a very simple but durable digital Casio sports watch for all occasions and felt I needed to buy something more formal without losing durability. Enter the field watch. Although understandably larger and heavier than the cheap plastic-and-rubber affair to which I was accustomed, the extra weight and size were unnoticeable after just a couple of hours. The strap canvas outer, leather stitched to the inner is very comfortable and conformed to my wrist within a couple of days. It is so comfortable in fact that I completely forgot to remove it in the shower. The canvas outer was damp for a short while, but the leather inner prevented my wrist from feeling wet at all. While the colours are subdued something I very much wanted in a watch, the time is easily read, and the luminous hands not numbers glow very well in the dark. The movement is quiet you can hear the ticking if you hold the watch right up to your ear but otherwise it is for all intents and purposes silent. The only feature I would add is a day display to complement the date, but this is a very minor drawback to the design which as a whole is neat, understated and very comfortable, even on my small wrists. It is a shame the automatic versions of this watch are not made in exactly the same colours and style, or I would have considered purchasing one of them and avoiding ever having to replace a battery again.

Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic Day Date Firstly, I have only had this watch for a couple of days so the longevity of the watch and its components is hard to judge but based on the history of the company providing watches to the US armed forces in WWII and expertise of the parent company Swatch I wouldn’t expect any issues with this. Also I have purchased a watch from the same collection but in a different colourway see picture as that was my preference but the watch is essentially the same. Style: I like all the styles within the Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic Day Date collection in all honesty as they all work well in different situation. The white watch face with black leather strap would work very well as a dress watch in my opinion and the black watch face with brown suede strap, I purchased, will work well as a day to day watch although I will probably also wear as a dress watch as I like the colour / style. Comfort: The suede strap does not have a lot of padding but is nonetheless comfortable and will likely soften more over time to be even more comfortable. Technologies: The H-30 movement with 80hrs power reserve has not yet been fully tested by me but as noted earlier the history of Hamilton, Swatch and also the manufacturer of the automatic movement for Hamilton ETA - also owned by Swatch, is well known to be efficient, accurate and reliable. I especially like the skeleton caseback showing the movement. Overall: The watch provides me with a Swiss made automatic watch with sapphire crystal, anti-reflective coating and history at a reasonable price and I think it is a very good entry level luxury watch. For me you get effectively everything a luxury watch provide at a more reasonable cost.

Service good. Condition on recite good. Spot on time as norm. But as many times before no instructions to read. This is the only thing that lets watch shop down. So as norm I will receive nothing. 25 watches.

This is a very classy looking watch. My husband chose this for the understated, slightly vintage looks after all Elvis loved his Hamilton watch. The comfortable soft strap with a double pinned buckle is an unusual feature. The unusual shape of the glass face makes this watch stand out. Highly recommend.

I found the watch shope experience a very straight forward one received the item the next day although the outer box of the watch box was damaged on a corner and opening the watch box I found the watch with no plastics not sure if they come with some or not from the manufacturer but even still I found a couple of minimal marks on the case only visible under a light bulb gave it a little polish ano it faded a bit I was considering sending the watch back but couldnt be bothered as the aestheticsun of the watch was at 98% and Im a perfectionist all around a positive experience but could of been better if the mark was spotted in the previous sale inspection
Very good
