An amazing presence and hardcore professional features unite to create the Hamilton Automatic Khaki X-Wind Chronograph H77616533 Mens Watch. The additional oomph in this work of art is its power to predict and record crosswinds, which makes it one of a kind of a pilot’s watch; in fact, the first one in its category!
With Hamilton, you can never go wrong. It is one of those brands with a reputation that runs over a century. So it’s no surprise that the Hamilton Automatic Khaki X-Wind Chronograph H77616533 Mens Watch comes with the first drift-angle calculator in it; the name Hamilton and innovations go hand in hand.
The most wonderful part of the Hamilton Automatic Khaki Pilot
H77616533 Mens Watch is you don’t need to be a pilot or aviation enthusiast to sport it. It is ruggedly handsome yet astute by all means; enough to become the most prized possession in your collection of watches.
The silver-tone stainless steel case and a black dial create a striking contrast which at the same time is very subtle to the eyes. The brown, thick, rich, calf-skin leather strap matches the colour scheme very well and adds a different kind of brightness to the whole setup. It enhances the ruggedness of the entire watch with the bezel and the chronograph giving it plenty of sagacity.
The black dial has white Arabic numerals on it. Those who do not know what Arabic numerals mean may read it here. The placements are unique, while simple, circular numbers are placed opposite to each other at 12, 3, 6 and 9’o clock positions. All of these find use in calculating drift angles, besides denoting the current and the elapsed time (through the central seconds-hand).
The three sub-dials show the elapsed time can be measured using the Khaki X-Wind’s three sub-dials while the drift-angle/crosswind calculator is laid-out along the chapter ring at the edge of the round dial. The position of the date window is also different from the rest; it’s at the 9 o’clock position instead of the usual norm of 3 or 6. There’s also present a day indicator adjacent to it. Covering all is a sapphire crystal.
At 44 mm with 22 mm lug width, the round watchcase has a transparent case back and stands 16mm tall. The bidirectional, tachymeter bezel is an added plus.
The Hamilton Jazzmaster American Classic
Chronograph H77616533 Mens Watch runs on an ETA 7750 movement and is perhaps the most successful automatic chronograph movement ever produced. It stores power worth almost two days when fully wound. It is water-resistant till 330 feet and can take the rigors of scuba diving well, its large size being a big advantage to read time under the water. However, never try to operate the crowns when in water.
