My first watch: Oris Artelier World Timer (MSRP $3650.00)
My second watch: Omega Aqua Terra 8500 (MSRP $5500.00)
My third watch: Victorinox Infantry Vintage Small Seconds (MSRP $925.00)
My Fourth watch: Hamilton Khaki Officers Automatic (MSRP $745.00)
By comparison, I don't think it is fair to compare the Oris or Omega with the the Hamilton. However, when comparing it with the Victorinox, the Hamilton can not compete. Almost every aspect of the VSA out performs the Hamilton; Fit, finish and over-all looks. I am not disappointed with the purchase of the Hamilton (you get what you pay for). However, I am very impressed with the Victorinox.
So, anyone who is considering an entry-level luxury watch, perhaps you should consider something other than a Hamilton and give other brands a look.
