You get a mighty Big Bang for your buck with a Hamilton Khaki Air Race. It exceeds my expectations for the money. For US $300 I get a Swiss made (ex USA) Hamilton shock resistant, automatic movement, 100m (330 ft) of water resistance & a Sapphire crystal glass. No other mechanical watch I have has an 80 hour power reserve.
I chose the 38mm Black dial with large Orange numbers, markers & hands with date complication. I have a smaller wrist & this watch fits me just beautifully & is very easy to read.
It's simple, elegant design is super functional & can be worn equally in the bush or as a casual wear with jeans & a T shirt.
This model has a very durable thick leather band with double tyne buckle, perfect for its designed function. I usually remove most bands in favour of an aftermarket choice.
I find myself wearing the Hamilton Air Race more often than most of my other, more expensive watches of which I have 12 in total.
I have made two modifications to this watch:...
