Original Vintage 1980s Hamilton Khaki 921980 Military Style Watch in unusually nice condition! Running well and keeping accurate time.Keeping accurate time as designed (well within 30 seconds/day) and in fantastic condition! Beautiful hands, dial and gorgeous case. Has been put on timegrapher and adjusted as needed and at the time it was tested it was actually adjusted to +/- 5 seconds, but since it is originally designed for 30 seconds +/- per day, I only guarantee 30 seconds. Case: 33mm, in VERY nice condition, case could benefit from a good toothbrush and some alcohol to clean it up a bit. Movement: 17 Jewel ETA 2750 (not a 2801-2).
The 2750 is a nicer movement than the 2801-2 in my opinion. The 2750 is the exact same movement used in the military issued pilots watch, the original military issue Hamilton GG W 113. In general pilots watches are of higher quality than ground forces issued watches. Winding is a little bit firmer than I would like, but it is still winding and running nicely. Lug Width: Between 17 & 18mm (but 18 mm straps do fit nicely, however snug as seen in the images) and 16mm straps leave some of the bars exposed.
I prefer 18 mm straps for this watch. This watch was designed to be water resistant & shock resistant, and designed to survive a fall from 4 feet onto a wooden block.
However, I have not and would never test these features on any vintage watch and highly recommend not dropping your watch or exposing your vintage watch to water. Water and shock damage should be avoided always with vintage watches regardless of specifications and original designs. Please see pics for more details and don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or need any more details. If for any reason you are not satisfied, I would like an opportunity to resolve or correct any issues.
