Hamilton Jazzmaster

Post by Mark1 » December 1st 2017, 2:55pm

Got this one in the other day. I had been looking at a day date model for a while having seen and liked the Tudor Glamour that artman picked up a while back. One in silver dial popped up on WatchRecon a couple weeks ago. Wanting to add another blue dial to the collection I found this one offered pretty cheap in one of Jomashops pre-holiday sales. It is a Hamilton Jazzmaster automatic day-date. Right sized at 40mm with Hamilton H40 movement. Basically, a 2836-2 slowed from 28.8 to 21.6, this gives the movement an 80 hour power reserve. Looking at it I can't really tell any difference in the second hand sweep at the lower speed.
It's hard to get a good shot of the blue dial with the natural light as it is here currently. Might be able to do better in say July. So anyway here's a few pics.

Outstanding pick-up, Mark! I love that 'Hammy Blue,' as it truly is an iconic shade in the world of horology, and I think you did a truly excellent job of picking it up through the lens and machinery of your camera -- not an easy thing to do, as I well know from my own experience with "Demon Camera." So stop being so hard on yourself! ;)

As to the elk poop...well, let's just say that it's gonna be a long, long time before I order another black bean burrito over at El Torito... (oy-VEY, dude... :| )

Ahh, Jazzmasters - nothing not to like there. Nice going, Mark. That's definitely one I would wear without hesitation; the blue really pops.

Nice purchase Mark. Hamilton makes very good quality watches and charges far less for them then the other players in the marketplace. I give it two thumbs up!

The Jazzmasters are fantastic, especially so at grey market prices.

Love mine as well. Ya’ did right good, Mark.

Thanks all. Forgot to mention this watch uses the dreaded pin and collar system on the bracelet-lost one collar in sizing it.

It's a damned conspiracy. Used to be predominantly Seiko who used this accursed system. Now it seems like everybody does.

I'm not too sure about that elk shit (it is a pre-Christmas limited-reserve Hodinkee special?) but I like that Hamilton. At $525 per Jomashop I'd also be tempted, but at $1,300 list price in the UK I'll just have to rob a bank!
