Regardless, welcome, AOL910....I believe that would be a Hamilton Khaki (King?) model, and yes it's a classic military-style field watch. Great choice.

I will use this as an excuse to post a not-so-great pic of my 7750-based chronograph.


 

Thanks! and yes, it's a Khaki King

The black croc is extremely stiff. I much prefer it on the OEM Buffalo. btw - removing the BP strap by yourself is extremely unpleasant. Take it your AD if you do decide to switch straps in the future.

Thanks! Wow that buffalo looks great! I probably will stick with the black for the time being since my Panny does bigass case/black dial/brown strap duty already. smile.gif I hope the black croc breaks in nicely over time. Here's a shot when I put her away last night, I was a little worried it wouldn't fit in the winder, but it did, just barely!

Looks awesome! :inlove:

That's a great collection TC, but doesn't your panny get confused when you put it in the winder? ;-)

Many of us have mistakenly believed a single purchase would be it for the year....only to find out we were soooooo wrong!!!  Welcome again...oh and I might as well let you know there is no cure for wristwatch addiction.;)

Thanks! Nahh, I have that particular motor set to "off". smile.gif I have to keep it in there, because if there's one thing I've learned recently, it's that an open slot in the winder is VERY dangerous! LOL

I'm sure it would be fine in its box, TC, instead of taking up that hole that would remind you of your continued need for an unambiguously formal dress watch on a strap, possibly with a calendar and/or moonphase.  Perhaps in a precious metal, perhaps not.  You know.  Just saying. :cool:

Was thinking of telling aol910 this earlier.  Dress watches, Dive watches, non-round watches, novelty watches, and then layer on all the cool books about watches since TWAT isn't taking up all our time.

Can't help but note the even more obvious absence of a chronograph in that box too.  I mean, AOL knows he needs a Speedy...TC?

Somewhat on topic, look at how blue the dial looks on this calendar/moonphase/chrono I'm wearing today. It's like ice blue. Maybe it's a collab between Rolex and Patek for platinum pieces? Heresy!!!

:lol: Nice, Frills!

 

 

Man, poor TC has just got a peachy new IWC that is way beyond me right now, and on the heels of that AP....a watch that would make me weep for humility and joy were I ever to own one.  And all I can do is point out he doesn't have a calendar or a chronograph.  I apologise for being a TWAT. :wow:

I'd like to pretend like I'm bothered by the encouragement and enabling, and the suggestion that I am in need of anything after completely exhausting my watch funds (and then some), but seriously these discussions really are a lot of fun! smile.gif I've really enjoyed my time here.

Rose gold Daytona anyone?
