well-balanced looking dial
The decision to keep the tachymeter in the same color with the central dial instead of making it black like the auto version is another great touch.
The watch is highly polished all around, keeping with the vintage design.

Price & Value

We got this watch from its retail distributor at a good discount – we paid RM 6,262 for this watch (USD 1,400).

Let me get this straight, this is our most expensive watch ever and by no means I would call this an affordable one. Though, I know of many watch enthusiasts out there would call this an ‘affordable swiss-made chronographs’.

But overall, I would say this Hamilton Intra-Matic Chronograph H offers great value for its price and is still the best bang for your buck (speaking from an owner who’s been wearing this for more than 1 year).

nothing beats the feeling of unboxing your new watch
