If you are into automatic watches, great keep it up. If you are considering your first automatic, here are some things to know.

1) Maintenance. You need to have these things maintained. It can be expensive. In my area there is no one cheaper than $200. You can send it to the company but it is $190 before shipping and any actual parts or repair. Three servicings during 9 years of ownership costs more than the watch did.

2) Accuracy. Far less accurate than quartz. If seconds matter in your job, then this isn't the watch for you.

3) Convenience. You need to wear this regularly for it to be wound. Probably every day unless you have a winder. If not, you need to wear it to wind it and then set it. Also you need to set the date every month and be careful, you can break the watch if you do it wrong.

4) Heritage. Some people get uppity about the $4 movement in quartz watches. However most automatics use the same cheap mechanical movement that costs $6. Until you get into expensive watches, there is nothing special or unique about the movement in either watch.

I hope that helps people make a decision. Mechanical watches are cool and trendy right now but I just want to make sure people are well informed before making the decision to buy one. Not for everyone.

Nice watch...very tempting (considering that a nice GMT is the next on my list), but I have to hold off considering that I have purchased two Hamiltons (Khaki Aviation Auto Chrono & Jazzmaster Viewmatic) in the past week. I think I'll wait for a good deal on one of the Orient GMTs (I'll still end up with a solid watch, but I can save a couple of bills in the process).

The Orient Star GMT is a very nice watch, but it won't really save you any money. They are not cheap!

I'm not looking at an Orient Star (I'm certain they are good watches, much like a Grand Seiko is, but I would rather spend that kind of money on something Swiss/German/et cetera), I'm thinking either a Explorer or Constellation (both have the features that I want in a moderate case size...I just need to find a deal on one), which can often be found for about $200 less than the Hammy mentioned here.

Amex is offering -$50 off if you purchase $250 from Ashford. Good combo if you like the watch.

How large is this watch? (I get the specs say 44mm), but just need a visual. Does someone have a pic on their wrists? For reference, the Orient Mako fits me perfectly, and I can't imagine anything larger than this.

I'm looking for an Automatic GMT and this is so close to what I'm looking for, but just a bit too military... I think it's the combination of the all-black bezel and the numbered face, but it's just a bit too field-watch looking for me. Any suggestions for an Automatic GMT in this price and quality range that's a little closer to the look of a GMT-Master without being a full-blown homage? The only thing I've found so far is the Steinhart GMT-Ocean 1 which may be the route I go if I don't cheap-out and go for a Sterile GMT-Master homage.

Well said, The Lab. As much as I adore automatic watches, they are certainly not the right tool for everyone. That said...I really hope my new Hammy H-21 movement cost more than $6 to produce! Now if my Seiko 7S26 movements cost that...more power to 'em!

P.S.: I would expect that (and any other reputable automatic) watch to go for at least 5yrs. before requiring service...but any longer than 10 and you're pushing your luck.

To each their own, but I've never understood why the day of the week was necessary. I actually prefer a watch sans date (it's just something else to set at the end of the month when I have to reset the date (which is a feature that I like). I just looked and I have 7 with the complication, and 11 without...of all of those only three do not include a date complication (and 2 of those 3 are heirloom watches).
