Hamilton Pilot Pioneer Mechanical

Post by Racer-X » October 6th 2019, 10:55pm

"The Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical, in all its various dial and case combinations, has unequivocally been a runaway hit with the enthusiast community. And it's no wonder why – the watch from which it takes its inspiration, the MIL-W-3818B (and MIL-W-46374), has been championed by the soldiering community since 1962. Now Hamilton has applied the same formula that worked so well with the Khaki Field to another military model from its storied past, the W10. It's called the Khaki Pilot Pioneer Mechanical."

The nature of the "cushion" case will make these wear like a 38mm round cased watch.It's listed as 36mm from 9-3, and 33 mm (due to the intrusion of the lug cut out) from 12-6.
My Zodiac Sea Dragon is listed as 39mm, but because of the case design it wears like a 43mm watch. Cushion cases are more square than round and are best measured from corner to corner to get a feel for the true size on the wrist.
