Well.... excellent work y'all that help:wink:the Hammie Corner Forum started..thanks to John for making this happened:cool1:

My Aviation QNE arrived a few days ago... love the watch look/fit/finish ...a big piece , it shows all of those 44mm yet despite that, it is very comfortable to wear...accuracy is a PLUS 2 seconds every 24hour period (as per my atomic clock reference) at par with my Omega Seamaster (Bond GMT), better than my Rolie Sub TT (at 4 seconds plus/day) amazing considering I paid a fraction of the cost of the above named pieces for my Hammie:thumbup1:
I changed the rather utilitarian strap (IMHO) to a genuine tan round alligator piece from the folks at the JRT Exotics Shop, taking advantage of the current deals on straps at one of the 2 Shopping Networks:wink:...
A couple things I would like to see improving :sad:..lume is poor and should be a lot better in a model line intended for pilots,the crown is not a screw down deal ...call me a freak but, I like (used to) the screw down feature in ALL my pieces who are rated at 100m/330f WR (even pilots make emergencies aqualandings sometimes;))
Overall, an awesome piece for the money, exuding quality and good looks...an X-Wing will follow soon


Couple pics for y'all to enjoy...quality...well, lousy as usual:thumbup1:
Happy New Year

Hi eddie and a royal Hamilton welcome to you as foggy and I shiver and you are probably basking in tropical warmth. Of course all three of us have our Hamilton's to keep us warm.:thumbup1:

I think we'll put a chair out for you because we want you to come back and visit us often. Nice new watch btw. Enjoy.

mgiraz, that 44mm khaki you have is really eating at me. I really like that one. Might make a great start into Hamilton for me. Any other suggestions would really be appreciated. I have seen a few Jazzmasters I like as well. Wow until you guys started this I didn't really think Hamilton much. This could catch on!

Birdman, you know the CEO of Hamilton's parent company, Nick Hayek wears several watches... on each arm. He's banking on our excitement over the product.:001_smile:

I can see his watches and I can't see why any company wouldn't be proud to have a forum dedicated to its products.

Maybe we can get an interview with that guy.

Who are you kidding? That's the CEO's head pasted on Foghorns body and arms!;)

Har Har Har!!!!

Along with a Breuget and/or a Blancpain Mr. Hayek also always wears a Swatch.
I believe that it's the first Swatch ever produced way back in 1983.
I think I heard that he has been offered thousands to sell the watch.
Not bad for a disposable plastic watch!!

Can you imagine ....I remember looking at the racks of 100's of these throw aways in the store....Why didn't we buy 100's of them? I didn't because I was wearing a Elgin Sportsman.

Do you still have that Elgin?

Took it off at a park to play baseball. We didn't play barefoot so I couldn't stick it in my sock and hide it in my shoe like Foghorn! Walked off and left it after the game...Never to be seen again...:sad:

The other killer is that after that I got a LeJour Chronograph and I don't know what happened to that watch.:blushing:
