HASH(0x972a2b1c) out of 5 stars Looks, feels, and performs like a much more expensive mechanical watch 3 April 2013

I had a heck of a time getting one of these, believe it or not. One seller had them back-ordered for 8 weeks, so I canceled the order. Another one told me later that they are back-ordered, then that Hamilton is no longer making them. The first place I searched for it was Amazon, but Amazon didn't have this particular model at the time. I wanted gold plating, but also with a black dial (for good dial:hand contrast) and partial arabic numerals for easy reading. This one does it.

Some folks will complain that the date window is white, and ruins the look of the black dial. But I think Hamilton did this on purpose, since the date aperture is at 3:00. If it were black background with gold or white numerals, it might be confusing, since the eye is expecting '3' at that position.

The fit & finish on this watch is top-shelf; on par with a modern Rolex or Omega. The minutes hand reaches out nice and far, unlike some of the Japanese and Chinese watches these days.

The movement has a nice level of finish. One wouldn't mistake it for a Breguet, but it is quite pleasing for a watch in this price range.

I like the American 1950s art deco styling, especially the numerals, and the elegante case design. Looking at the pix, I even liked the huge crown guard. But in practice, this is my only complaint with the watch: you see, the winding position of the stem is fully in. So that huge crown guard makes it hard to hand-wind the watch. It is not a deal-killer, since the watch is an automatic. If one is the type of person who wears this watch every day, then s/he will only need to hand-wind it to get it going on that first day. I'm a watch collector, and so I wind it manually nearly every time I wear it. Of course, since it is an automatic, I could also shake it side to side for 30 seconds to get it going (ala Seiko, Citizen, and Orient, which don't hand-wind) so that is another option.

The leather strap is top quality, properly thick, but not objectionably so, and with good grain. I could do without the fake crocodile pattern stamped into it, but that is not a deal-killer either. It has a regular tang buckle, instead of a deployment buckle, but I find these more comfortable anyway. To me, the whole point of a leather strap is to have the LEATHER against one's skin, not metal. Leather breathes, and metal bracelets don't.

The crystal is sapphire glass, and is thus nearly scratch-proof. Only precious gems and possibly ceramic can scratch it. Steel just glides right off of it. Sapphire glass is more brittle though, so if abused it will shatter into a thousand tiny shards or chip at the edge of the crystal. This is not a watch that is intended to be beaten-on. For that kind of duty, either take off your watch, or put on your G-Shock. (G-Shocks only have mineral glass crystals, but the rubber bumper rises up around the edges of it, so they are also nearly impossible to scratch)

This model has the 38mm case diameter. Other models in the Jazzmaster Viewmatic series are 40 or 42 mm, so pay attention to that spec, and double check it at Hamilton's site with the reference no., as the Amazon specs are sometimes wrong. This fits just perfectly on my 6-3/4" circumference wrist. Not overwhelmingly large, and not too small either. If your wrist is much over 7" circumference, you may want to consider larger models, for a good proportion.

A great watch, I'd buy it again in a second. It just oozes class without overdoing anything.

HASH(0x9a049300) out of 5 stars Couldn't be happier with this watch (well maybe a little) 7 Dec. 2012

Purchased this watch from Amazon...have had it about 6 weeks now and I love it. The rose gold case with the black dial looks great and it's just different enough to be distinctive in an understated way. It's definitely more classic than trendy, since it's not a Big Watch, it only has one dial, and nothing spins around on the outside of the case. It just keeps perfect time and tells you the date. The gold hands on the black dial provide excellent contrast, and the non-glare crystal does its job perfectly so you can see the time at a glance in all conditions. The automatic movement works flawlessly. I wear it every day and have not had to wind it manually at all. The strap was a bit stiff at first but after a couple of weeks it was fine. The only thing I would change is that I would make the hands just a little more luminous in the dark. Everyone has their own taste in watches; this was exactly what I was looking for and I'm 110% satisfied. Great value for the money.

UPDATE 4/12/15: Accuracy has gradually deteriorated as the watch has aged. I've had it 2.5 years and it is now losing about 30 seconds a day. That's not terrible for an automatic but when it was new it kept close to perfect time. Still love the watch but re-rated from 5 stars to 4.

HASH(0x96f25cc0) out of 5 stars Very nice watch, leather strap subpar 25 Mar. 2012
By R. Jones - Published on Amazon.com

Rose gold case is a real eye catcher, love the automatic movement with the skeleton back. Great value for the price, though I can't give it 5 stars because the leather band is poor. Thinking about replacing the band. Overall 4 stars, but 5 stars for everything except the band.

Update, now that I have owned my watch for a month and a half my leather band has loosened up enough to be a serviceable/ok band. Also, this watch keeps fantastic time, very accurate.

If I could rate half stars I would bump it up to 4.5. I wish this watch was a little bigger 40 or 42 instead of 37mm, overall though I am more pleased now than I was when I first got it.

HASH(0x96fbe7d4) out of 5 stars Almost Perfect 10 Aug. 2013
By Ken Tilbe - Published on Amazon.com

I agree that this is a great looking well made watch, and overall I am very happy with it. After a year, the crystal still looks as good as the day I got it. The only problem (aside from the fact that it does run a little bit fast) is the watch band. Although also good quality and comfortable it is way too short to fit an average wrist. As a result, it is hard to buckle, and because it will only reach to the second hole it causes an ackward bend to get it to close. Because of this, the band split before it was a year old. The biggest problem is that to replace it with the same band will cost you $130, around 20-25 percent of what the watch costs.
