    FS (CONUS): Hamilton Khaki Mechanical - ETA mov't., date, black dial

    Selling my Hamilton Khaki Mechanical watch. It is the date version with black dial, ETA movement, and tan canvas strap (like new condition). I am the original owner, and I purchased the watch in May 2017. Includes box, no warranty. Since I have limited experience shipping internationally, I am interested in CONUS buyers only at this time. Thank you for your interest!

    Price = $250. This includes flat rate/similar shipping (with delivery signature required) and PayPal fees, CONUS only. I am not interested in trades. I am not accepting returns, so please ask questions before purchasing.

    Technical data:
    Movement: ETA 2804-2, hand winding and hacking seconds.
    Case diameter: 38 mm (without crown).
    Case thickness: 9.5 mm.
    Lug width: 20 mm.
    Water resistance: 50 m (when new; I have not had the watch recently pressure tested).
    Power reserve: 42 hours (per spec; I have not recently tested, but I never found issues with the power reserve)

    My notes:
    The watch is gently used with minor wear. There are two significant marks that I think are worth mentioning: hairline scratches on the "bezel" at 11 and 5. Because of the bead blasted type case finish, the visibility of these is dependent on the light and angle of the watch, and the marks can go from invisible to very noticeable. Beyond these, I didn't find any significant marks on the crystal, lugs, case sides or back.

    The watch is keeping so-so time, running fast. Please understand that I cannot guarantee in every scenario that a buyer will experience the below results, since every ownership routine/rotation/experience is different. If a buyer finds the timekeeping performance to be drastically different than below, please contact me!

    I tested the watch last night on my timegrapher and found that it averages around +15 seconds/day. This is consistent with how the watch has ran since I have owned it. In my non-expert opinion I think this watch could be regulated to keep better time, as the positional variance in timekeeping (dial up, crown up, etc.) seemed reasonable. The amplitude and beat error are okay.

    I only sell occasionally on WUS, but do have a couple examples of positive sales feedback:

    FS (CONUS): Hamilton Khaki Mechanical - ETA mov't., date, black dial

    I’ve had some adjustments done to improve the timekeeping. The watch on my Timegrapher now reads around +5 to +10 seconds a day, depending on position.

    I left the watch in a dresser drawer positioned dial up over the last 24 hours to validate this, and the watch was +7 seconds.

    On wrist performance could vary based on how often the watch is wound and positional variance, etc.

    But much better! Thanks!
