This is a very well made and sharp looking dress watch. The dial is simple and uncluttered, the gold hour and minute hands and the small second hand at the 9 o'clock position really pop against the silver dial. The magnifier over the date is functional, integrated into the case and looks great. Overall a great watch.
This is a railroad legacy timepiece. My grandfather gave me a Hamilton RR pocket watch and this new Hamilton wrist watch just made sense. The size is 44 or 45 mm in diameter which is a excellent size for a wrist watch. The hour and minute hands have glowing tips as well as each hour mark. The exhibition back is always a positive for someone who appreciates the craftsmanship of a fine watch movement. The exaggerated date window is awesome as I don't have to squint to see what the date is. This should be an heirloom much like grandfathers pocket watch.
A homage version of the intra-matic watch from the 1960s, this is a modern sized 42mm version. The contrasting silver dial is domed and the hands are curved to match in a wonderfully vintage way. The crystal is also domed and the case appears slimmer due to a step design that is well thought out and very comfortable to wear on the wrist. I have the bracelet version which is very well executed and solid. The bracelet is more of a 1950s style that is high polished and has 9 solid individual links across. There are two 3/4 length one piece links besides the clasp that can be used or removed independently for precise fitment. The links are removed via an easy traditional push pin design. Screws would be considered higher-end but the pressure pin is more practical. The butterfly clasp has tasteful circular graining and is solidly well designed. It closes very securely without play. The venerable eta 2892a2 movement is cleanly radiused and well finished giving it nice aesthetics without going over the top. ETA being part of the swatch group you could say the watch has a inhouse made movement. The price is a bargain. I haven't taken it off since I received it.
I own three Hamilton watches. They are time tested as this company built the time pieces for the railroad and the soldiers during WWII. Was one of the last American made watches. Company is now owned by Swatch Group.
