This Hamilton Khaki X-Wind chronograph watch is model H77696793. It has a Swiss made automatic movement with 25 jewels. It is the tried and tested caliber Valjoux 7750, which is often recognizable by the feeling of the rotor spinning powerfully inside. One of the reasons for this mini-helicopter-like spinning is because the rotor on a 7750 doesn’t ratchet backwards.
The case is stainless steel, but finished with a high quality gold plating that is 10 microns. The diameter is a comfortable 44mm (and approximately 50mm including crowns on the right and left) with a thickness of 16mm. The black dial is actually black carbon fiber with rose gold Arabic numerals. The layout of the dial features a day/date window at 9:00 and an internal bi-directional rotating bezel – controlled by the crown located at 4:00. The outer bezel is black (this is available in rose gold tone on other models) and also bi-directional rotating.
The original Hamilton strap is black leather with a carbon fiber texture that matches the dial. The “H” tang buckle is an especially nice touch. If you want to changeto a NATO or other style strap, the lug width is 22mm. The total weight of this watch is 142g. The crystal is a scratch resistant sapphire. Equipped with a screw-down crown, the X-Wind has a depth rating of 100m. This set from KeepTheTime.com includes the Hamilton boxes, manual, warranty card. It is in unworn condition.
