Hi,

New member here - great site. I think I have decided to buy a Hamilton as a special present (to myself - for my retirement). I am considering a Khaki field or a Khaki King - I love the simplicity of these.

My queston is -- can folks suggest reliable internet Hamilton dealers? I'd love to get a better than retail price of course ;>) (I will be retired after all!). But I am new to automatic watches (and I do want one) so I am a bit reluctant to buy a grey market version in case something goes wrong. My local jeweler does not carry a wide variety so I can't rely on him.

Thnks in advance,

Tom

Hi Tom and welcome to the newest WTF forum featuring Hamilton watches.

There are several Hamilton authorized dealers that sell on the internet. Because of Hamilton requirements, the prices listed are usually MSRP but if you call these sites, they will quote you a lower selling price.

While Hamilton currently enjoys a good QC and service reputation, it is wise of you to purchase from an authorized dealer so on the off chance you need warranty service, you should be able to receive it. I think Hamilton offers a two year warranty.

There are three AD's with online sites I suggest you visit for shopping before you buy: Princeton Watches (one of the oldest internet watch dealers), Kenmar Watches in Michigan, and ewatches.com. When you order, ask whether they will provide a stamp to authorize your warranty or whether your sales receipt will suffice. I think you should expect about a 25%-30% discount off MSRP from these companies.

Good luck and hope to see you back posting pix of your new Hammie.:thumbup1:

Dear Rusty,

Many thanks for the info - it was just what I needed. Now to choose!

Bear in mind that you'll have to call these AD's as NO Hamilton AD is allowed to post a discount price on line.
They will however work with you over the phone.
If a website quotes the discount selling price in their on line site then I don't think they are Authorized dealers.(they may offer their own "in house " warranty)
Stick with those mentioned by Rusty.

Good point, foggy. And we are in no way connected to the companies cited in my earlier post nor do we receive any compensation, moolah, or even an "atta boy" from these companies. They are just three examples of Hamilton Authorized Dealers that have a presence on the Internet.
