I like this! However, I have visions of every hair on my wrist being slowly and painfully tugged out :eek1
I would probably wear it anyway, that looks pretty sharp
^I'm hoping the mesh is too tight - we'll see.
That's a another classic Bauhaus styled watch that takes its cue from the official clocks found in Swiss railway stations. They have a tritium-lumed auto version that I'd like over the quartz, but that slim case is sexy. I don't know how I feel about the mesh diving bracelet... Think it would look more at home on a strap, imo.
That's a nice looking watch!
It might be a nice looking watch but it does NOT say 'Swiss Made' on the dial.
Something is wrong, I would not buy this watch until I knew it's origin.
This picture come from the official Hamilton website.
A lot (if not all? The ones made for the NA market maybe?) of watches from the Khaki line-up don't have the "Swiss made" label on the dial but you can find it on the caseback.
I don't know if it's a kind of tactic to play on the "american origin" thing or what but it's the way it is.
I like the look...but I don't think there is enough contrast for these aging eyes to see time unless it is in full light.
Let us know if there is more contrast than the photo reveals.
I circled this in a catalog and
it showed up under the tree in December.
I can see this dial, 'just fine.'
link if picture it does not attatch--
Simple, elegant, contrasting face and affordable.
Did I mention accurate as well?
Doesn't that make it a great watch then? tough as and still keeps good time?
I think you mis- read that.
My take on what he said was this; it keeps great time but it already looks knackered, and it's only 2 weeks old.
You guys notice how all the watches in these "stock" photos are at 10:10?
that's so the watch has a "happy face."
Not all clocks feature the time at 10:10. shrug.
Just off hand, if 10:10 represents a happy face,
I would say this is an 'unhappy' face on this watch/clock.

Call me crazy but...
I would email the company and if they do not respond I would look elsewhere.
I think they intentionally leave the "swiss made" off certain models. They're entitled to put it there but aren't obligated. Relevant thread here:
It would be of greater concern if the watch were labeled "swiss made" but fabricated elsewhere. This WWII era one of mine is definitely made in the USA:
I love the subtle embossed Hamilton logo:
By 1969 though,
they were already labeled "swiss". (click image below to see high res)
Hamilton uses ETA (Swiss made) movements. Whether or not that is indicated on the caseback or dial is of no significance.
Hamilton is a brand of the Swatch Group. If that is a Hamilton, as opposed to a fake, it is Swiss.
