Well this is disappointing to read. I am just getting into collecting and heard the Hamilton Khaki is one of the best swiss automatics in the sub $1k bracket. Was going to pick one up today.

You should pickup that watch. Given the market conditions today, Hamilton is probably one of the best watches. Essentially you're getting something a-la IWC for a fraction of the price.

As stated above, the AR is not a big deal and you can change the strap. Don't forget that until recent iteration of Rolex models, most of the Rolex tool models were not perfect either.

I forgot about this Thread. The Crystal has double AR on it now and I had a new Strap made to fit my XL wrist, I also got a good quality army green Nato for it so it looks more like a FIELD WATCH. I did end up sending it back to Hamilton/Swatch in Culver City and after a couple months of waiting it came back and the warranty receipt said Movement repair. So the clicking was a Defect. I'm currently having a Green Canvas strap made for it.

I'm in the same boat. They look beautiful but the quality seems to be decent at best. Maybe i'll get one second hand and see how many issues i end up having with it.
