Hamilton Khaki X-Wind Automatic Review

Hamilton Khaki X-Wind Automatic Watch Review

The Hamilton Khaki X-Wind mens watch is one of my favorites by Hamilton, especially in this dial color (ivory). This time I want to jump right to the automatic movement first. The X-Wind uses a Valjoux 7750, this is amazing considering a price point under $1,500 (that’s before any discounts!). For those of you that enjoy knowing what is under the hood will appreciate this value. I can think of one particular watch which uses a Valjoux 7750, it has been slightly modified and retails for around $6,800! Getting back on track the ivory colored dial adds a real sense of class to this very versatile watch. There is a nice contrast between the brown leather strap accented with white stitching against the dial. Some of the many features include small black indices on outer dial, brushed stainless steel turning ruler black with black numbers/indices, analog day and date at the 9 o'clock position, polished stainless steel crowns and pushers, display back, and sapphire crystal. 

Pros - A lot of watch for money, nice size, display back, and versatile.

Considerations - This version is only offered on a leather strap.
