This year, the Swiss-American watch brand will again expand its model range with a line of pilot’s watches. Meet the 2010 Hamilton Khaki Pilot automatic wrist watch.
The watch will be officially unveiled only tomorrow or on Friday, but it is already known that the 2010 Hamilton Khaki Pilot will be delivered in either a rather large 46 mm stainless steel case or a more traditional 42 mm body. One of the most visually appealing versions of the watch will feature a black PVD-coated body combined with black dial and black leather strap on two matte-black rivets.
The model will be powered by the ETA 2836-2 caliber and therefore will be able to display not only date, but also the day of week. By the way, the same caliber powers the last year’s Fortis B42 Black & Black Limited Edition (Ref. 647.28.81 K) and the more expensive TAG Heuer Aquaracer 500M Calibre 5 Diver.
As you can see on the photos, the Hamilton Khaki Pilot‘s dial sports two scales: outer for the minutes and seconds and the inner for hours. Accordingly, the broad sword-shaped minute and hour hands have different skeletonization drastically increasing the watch’s legibility and making the intentionally dull-looking timepiece a great deal more stylish.
And with a claimed water resistance rating of impressive 200 meters, you can always be sure that the piece will still work even if you have to make a crush landing on a body of water!
