    Default New models from Hamilton

    OK, not strictly military, but certainly some military inspiration there. Some that are rather handsome, I find.

    I find it quite ironic to see Hamilton, a brand picturing itself as American, go for the Flieger look on some of its new models...

    The Flieger look has been problematic for a number of brands, not least IWC's Saint-Ex version.

    Re the new Hamiltons, I rather like a few of those. Likely to be reasonably good value too.

    Slightly off topic for NSN 6645, but the Lady Hamilton vintage watches are rather nice - I have an original Hamilton cocktail watch (white gold / diamonds) I bought last year for an anniversary present which looks very similar.
    Your bleeding-edge Now is always someone else’s past. Someone else’s ’70s bellbottoms. Grasp that and start to attain atemporality.

    I like the Team Earth Auto with the black dial and IWC Big Pilot style strap - reminds me of a sort of non-chrono Hanhart 417 with an onion crown - that would be a good beater watch, depending on price.
