Highlights:

The Hamilton Jazzmaster Automatic Men’s Watch has a see-through caseback with rounded edges, which adds to it a charm different from others. It is the kind you find in much higher priced Swiss watches. From the inside peeps a Hamilton-engraved rotor with a brushed finish, belonging to the grand-daddy of the watch-world – the ETA 2824, with a 25-jeweled bearing format for it. Best known for being the workhorse of the ETA family, it has a 38-hour power reserve and runs at 28,800 bph/4Hz and allows both hand-winding and hacking. The regulator of the 2824 is ETA’s own Etachron system, making it an affordable choice with a “Ye God, how much?” look.

The 40mm, stainless steel case is pretty durable and slightly larger than what a dress watch should really be, but it is also the perfect size that pleases most men. Besides, an extremely good build quality echoes the sentiment Hamilton holds about the art of horology. Scratches are unlikely to develop unless you abuse it deliberately. The crystal; however, shall remain free from any blemish and also fogging. It is sapphire crystal; therefore, also easier to clean and the slight curvature looks classy.

The dial has slightly raised hour markers with razor-thin strips of lume on the hands. Don’t expect the lume to glow like a torch; it is just sufficient to make you see the time at night. The watch is supposed to look good in regular lighting and the uncluttered dial does the job fantastically.

Conclusion:

The Hamilton Automatic Khaki Watches are certainly not the prettiest dress watch around, but as a higher-than-basic –and-solid-as-a-rock watch, it can’t probably go beat.
