Hamilton's Khaki line of watches have been popular among outdoorsmen/women looking for wallet friendly, rugged mechanical watches. Very useful watches, even if a tad uninteresting. The aviation inspired X-Patrol adds a new spin these watches however, with the addition of conversion scales for world travelers that haven't quite nailed down units like kilometers, liters and meters. What's more, the X-Patrol has a new movement, various dial configuration options and a sub $2,000 price tag.
What looks at first glance to be a gussied up Tachy bezel, is actually two rings that flank the dial, one of which rotates via the crown at 9 o'clock. On the inner ring are 4 separate data sets that can be matched up with the rotating outer bezel. Once you've got the arrows lined up you can make your conversion of miles and kilometers (statute or nautical); heights or altitudes in feet and meters; volumes in gallons and liters; and weights in pounds and kilograms. Pretty useful stuff if you're trying to make your way through a foreign part of the world.
The X-Patrol can do other things too, a chronograph and day/date complication round out the rest of the dial, courtesy of the proprietary Caliber H21inside. The automatic movement has a power reserve of 60 hours and is visible through fan shaped openings in the caseback. Price for all this? A mere $1,695. Check out some of the color schemes after the break.
