    Hamilton watch back is different than store pictures?

    So I just got my Hamilton Khaki Auto 38mm H70455133 from Jomashop and noticed the back is different than their pics and on Hamiltons website. Did I get an older model or something?

    mine says water resistant 10 bar/145psi Swiss made H704450

    The H704450 has me concerned because that's not the model number I ordered. Any ideas?

    thanks.

    Well, 5 minutes of Googleing yields the following:
    The picture of the back on the JOMA page looks identical to yours.
    That back, with that number, appears on several other Khaki Fields with the same number.

    What did JOMA say?

    Hamilton does change its model numbers and casebacks slightly, every so often, for what is the equivalent watch. It's hard to keep track of it but there are some threads in the Hamilton forum that might shed some light.

    As far as your watch being older, that's a very strong possibility. Where do you think grey market sellers get their watches from? They don't get fresh stock from the manufacturer, they buy old stock from authorized dealers who want to clear out the inventory they haven't been able to sell so that they can bring in new product.

    Normal. You will find more information if you check the newer threads in the Hamilton section of the forum.

    When a manufacturer update a model the old stuff tends to get shoved out to grey dealers so getting "yesterday's" watch is a constant risk.
