When looking for a luxury watch that may or may not be your starter piece but will certainly last as lifetime, it can be difficult to find anything under $1,500 at the bare minimum. Which is why when we do come across a worthy option we're eager to add it to our collection.
Our latest obsession is this damned handsome Hamilton Khaki Chronograph, available on Amazon for under $1,200. Hamilton is a storied American brand whose pieces are manufactured in Switzerland, with quality standards you'd usually have to spend a lot more to secure.
This is part of the Khaki series from the watch brand which was founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1892 and is now based in Bienne, Switzerland, and it references Hamilton's cool military field watch heritage.
Sized at 42mm it's equipped with a handsome retro-style black dial, fixed steel bezel, and in-house automatic movement. It comes on brown saddle leather strap and is water resistant to 100 meters/330 ft. Strap one on and you won't regret it for a minute.
