This Hamilton Khaki, model H74511333, has an ETA 22 jewel movement and a sapphire crystal, and an unusual but effective crown guard.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the supplied paperwork, this watch was sold by the prestigious Christ Jewelers in Zurich in October 2006.
This design has two distinct features. The first is the bracelet – solid links on the outside, and dimpled plastic centre section which actually feels very strong. The bracelet is not integrated, so if it is not for you you could wear this on any leather strap or metal bracelet. The second is the unusual crown protector. This C shaped clip pivots above the crown to stop the crown either getting knocked or accidentally coming out, which would stop the watch. It is a similar solution that Panerai use to solve the same problem, albeit this is a cheaper and simpler design.
The watch is in good order, with just light signed of wear. The sapphire crystal is unmarked, and a nice sign of quality. The numerals and the hour and minute hand are lumed, and this still is effective. The chronograph has pump pushers, and measures up to 30 minutes in 1/10th second intervals. The bracelet has been cleaned on our ultrasonic bath, and a new battery has been fitted.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box, papers and our Certificate of Authenticity.
