Hamilton Khaki Pilot – Movement:

The movement is one of the most respected measures of quality for watches. The Khaki Pilot runs on a Swiss, 25 jewel, 2836-2 caliber made by ETA. The 2836 offers a hack function, which stops the seconds hand while the crown is pulled to the time-setting position. While this is quite common in today’s automatic movements, it was once an important technological advancement for pilots, as it made the important task of synchronizing watches possible.

The Swiss manufactured automatic 2836-2 movement is visible via an apparent case back created from scratch resistant sapphire crystal. Coated in super-luminova, the hands enhance the readability even in total darkness.

Hamilton Khaki Pilot – Water Resistance:

The Hamilton Khaki Pilot is water resistant at depths reaching 200 meters which basically incredible. It can take any kind of water splashes and even major dives. 200 meters is a lot deep to maneuver and even though many people would say that the water resistant feature on any watch is an exaggeration of its true capacity, 200 meters is still a lot of depth no matter what you say. May you be a diver or just a person looking for that classic pilot look, then the Hamilton Khaki Pilot will never disappoint.

Hamilton Khaki Pilot – Style and Design:

A big stainless steel case, wide and easy-to-read dial, military inspired triangular marker at twelve, thick leather strap with rivets. The Hamilton Khaki Pilot takes on the classic big Pilot style of the early 1900’s. Its classical aviation look is what many men is looking for. The watch features bold, easy to read indexes with hours demonstrated via its minutes. The harsh look depicts a sense of adventure whether in the air, on the ground or at sea.

The Hamilton Khaki Pilot performs an aerobatic maneuver that brings the watches back to basics. Two separate main scales, both in Arabic numerals, a central sweeping second’s hand, and a pair of strategically skeletonized minutes and hours hands constitute the fundamental elements. With this watch, simplicity and quality is supremely highlighted.

Although undeniably sporty, the Khaki Pilot can also be dressed up. The dial has a lot to do with this. The applied, five-minute markers are made of steel, which lends some shine to the dial. The brown and black alligator-style straps that are available are also pretty classy even though they retain the thickness of the basic leather strap.
