I've always been a fan of Hamiltons, and own two myself. But over the last few years, it almost seem slike they have stepped up their game. Style is nailing it, movements are excellent, and just generally, overall, they seem like a higher end product with each passing year.
Thankfully, the prices remain realistic for most folks - low enough to either purchase outright or attainable enough that a bit of saving will secure the sundial of your choice.
Each time I go looking for a manual watch (manual wind), I bump into a Hammy - maybe I should just give in and add one to the drawer...LOL
