Used Hamilton Watch
February 22, 2016 2:48 PM   Subscribe

I want to buy a 38mm Hamilton Men's H70455863 Khaki Field Automatic Watch. I'd love to buy it used, but most of the used Hamilton Khaki Field Watches I see are the larger 42mm or 46mm versions. Do you have any suggestions of places to buy this watch used? It retails for ~$400; I'd love to get it for ~$200.

Are you keeping an eye on therealreal? Looks like they have a few Hamilton watches.

If you're willing to wait until that particular model crops up, WatchRecon?

Most of the dealers are European, but there are plenty of North American dealers selling what you are looking for at chrono24.

You might try the forums at They have a sales forum you can search for keywords like 'hamilton' or the model number. You might be waiting a long time if you're that specific about which watch you want to buy, though, since as watches go ~$400 isn't at the high end to begin with, so there's not going to be a ton of resale. I'm not trying to get down on you or anything; I have a similar Hamilton (H70615733) and like it very much, and am quite happy with it for the $450 or so I paid for it. I'm just saying that the forum-based resale market is going to have more volume at a higher price point because the margins on these watches aren't as big.

Echoing what deanc said, chrono24 is basically the ebay of watches. I see 3 results there just by searching for Hamilton + the reference number. You may actually get a better deal buying from a European dealer, as the current EUR<>USD exchange rate is something like 1.1EUR<>1.00USD
