Hamilton Khaki Conservation watch is tasteful and eco-friendly

hamiltonHamilton recently teamed up with Conservation International and Harrison Ford to create the “Khaki Conservation” edition. They’ve created a “eco-friendly” version of the Khaki Navy GMT with special design elements. It’s a limited edition using recycled material for the packaging, and Hamilton has pledged to donate the proceeds to Conservation International.

The movement is a 21 jewel automatic with a sapphire crystal, and a see-through back printed with Harrison Ford’s signature and the Conservation International logo.

Retailing for around $1100, it’s one of the sharpest watches we’ve seen from Hamilton in a long time.

  1. Nice watch, but should an “eco-friendly” “conservationist” watch really have a leather band? I mean, seems a little hypocritical given that on the product page Ford says, “[o]ur health relies entirely on the vitality of our fellow species on Earth.”

    I highly doubt that these guys kill wild animals to make their leather straps. The strap is probably made from a skin of some poor calf or a cow that was anyway killed a couple of days ago for its meat.

    Anyway, what’s the alternative for leather? Rubber, silicone? You will have to waste even more energy to make this kind of a strap.
