Is Happy Day! Well, yesterday was - got my first Hamilton watch, the Belowzero 1000m Diver!
avatar September 07, 2014 07:14AM
I've been a WIS for 12 or so years now and have always appreciated the quality of Hamilton watches, but never liked any enough to pull the trigger. Well, I have been looking at and warming up to the Belowzero diver for a few years and finally decided to check one out.

I absolutely love this thing. It is quite large at 47mm and heavy, but so well made. I love the case shape, dial and hands, even though I am not normally keen on dials with large numbers on them. This one though is a bit different, almost like an airplane cockpit instrument with the 0 at the 12 o'clock position. Also, the little bit of red on the end of the seconds hand is the right amount of color.

Here are some quickie wrist shots along with a couple from the seller.

I just have to agree, there are clear elements of flight instrument design in this one... PN 296 September 07, 2014 08:40AM
Yep, I think that's really Hamilton's thing, but it's a tank of a diver too! Wink (n/t) Mike D 331 September 08, 2014 04:20PM
