    Hamilton Khaki Field Chronograph H71416137 is good watch?

    Good time of the day all!
    I much like Hamilton. Am going to buy Khaki Field Chronograph H71416137. That 38 mms in diameter.
    However, beside us in Ukraine this mark not very known. Certainly this Valjoux 7750. This it is enough for clarity. However, much depends on factory regulations and quality production.
    Who long ago has such watch (Hamilton Khaki Field Chronograph H71416137) prompt me:
    1 - what accuracy of the move?
    2 - what reliability?
    3 - possible problems?
    Excuse me for inexactnesses....
    Beforehand all thank you and good luck....

    In North America - the U.S. and Canada in particular - Hamilton is currently regarded as one of the best values on the market. Some people look with suspicion at the competitively lower pricing of Hamilton automatics.

    Hamilton does a good job of adjusting and installing both ETA 2824, 2893 and (Valjoux) 7750 movements in a variety of models. Regulation is quite good and my own Hamilton watches maintain very good rates measured on my Timegrapher MTG-500 - usually tending to run slightly fast overall. Daily use of any Hamilton automatic tends to settle the rate over time, to a point where the reliable Valjoux 7750 becomes extremely accurate.

    Finishing of cases, lugs, bezels and dials is very good. Hamilton has focused for the past 8 years on designing and producing distinctive, functional watches. The design group is talented. They've made very creative use of common watchmaking materials (316L steel, titanium, PVD/DLC) and finishing techniques (buffing, polishing, satinizing) and have also taken a very balanced approach to physical case geometry. Lug width, lug angles/curves, case heights, strap/bracelet widths and thicknesses, and even strap buckles and bracelet clasps are well thought out, functional and distinctively Hamilton.

    Enjoy your KFC.

    I have recently owned three different Hamilton Field Chronographs (the 42mm versions). The worst of the three ran at +4 seconds per day.

    Can't speak to reliability or problems because I have not owned any of them for very long. Really great watches so far, though. My only wish would be for anti-glare coating on the sapphire.

    What I would like to find is a recommended repair shop for my Khaki Field Chrono. I had it sent to Hamilton for an estimate and the repair cost was going to be about $800. I bought the watch 3 years before that for $750 so I won't do that!
    I like the look of the watch but I have never been that impressed with the quality. I certainly will not buy another Hamilton because of this.

    The bottom push pin is stuck, and I can't reset the second hand back to zero.

    An absolutely nice watch. Trying to make room in my watch box for one.

    I got the 42 mm version.
    the movement is good, is reliable and quite precise (+- 5sec\day)
    the overall feeling is to have a great watch on the wrist.
