Hamilton Khaki Skymaster UTC praised for its value for money

First published: 11-02-2011

Hamilton is a timepiece manufacturer which those on the lookout for fashion watches should consider, according to an industry website.

Hodinkee.com stated that the firm, which operates under the Swatch Group umbrella, is a producer of entry-level mechanical accessories.

"They make some cracking watches. What we've seen of Hamilton’s latest offerings, to be launched at Basel later this year, definitely fall into the 'cracking' category. Take the Khaki Skymaster UTC, for example," the source stated.

It added that the Skymaster shares the same case and layout as many other Hamilton timepieces, including the Khaki Navy GMT, Air Race and Khaki Conservation.

However, it features a different 'skin' and the window at nine o'clock displays an international airport code which correlates with the small GMT hand.

Recently, Luxist.com reported that Hamilton was planning to release a novelty watch which is designed to look like a stick of lipstick, with the metal casing featuring the time on the outside.
