It is a well respected brand, gets a lot of love here, and I'm very happy with my Khaki Field. I would say it is similar to Certina, Tissot quality. You can easily find similar threads if you dig a little deeper. Cheers.
Us simple folk call that "bang for the buck." FTFY(...) But having said all that these are relatively minor differences in the scale of things and a Hamilton is no less reliable or prone to any issues as any other far more expensive watch. And then there's the key benefit - they cost considerably less so in fact you actually get a lot more watch for your money than you do with many more expensive brands.
In terms of "bang for buck", it doesn't get a whole lot better than Hamilton. Fit and finish won't quite compare to Omega or Rolex, but my experience with Hamilton has been that they are solid, accurate, and trouble free. I'll happily buy more in future.
I current rotate between a Hamilton Navy Pioneer and an Omega Aqua Terra, and although the Omega is 6x the price, and in many ways "better", I look forward just as much to wearing both, and can't quite bring myself to retire the Hamilton and make the Omega a daily wear, even though it's a perfect all-rounder. The Hamilton somehow holds its own, and gets picked out of the watch box roughly every other day.

Longines are higher up in the Swatch pecking order so are of a slightly better standard of fit and finish etc. But no better a watch for that particularly. Really it's only your personal taste of their designs that dictates between them!How would you guys rate the Hamilton Khaki Field watches up against the Longines Conquest models?

Pleasure. Honestly you can't really go wrong with a Hamilton. Enjoy it and wear it well.Cheers hub, yeah I think I'm going to go ahead and grab this Hamilton because I really like the design. I found a great price on the GM so if it doesn't work out, no big deal.
Ha! It's like an addictive drug! Oris are another much under appreciated brand that actually give great bang for buck.After having only started with automatic watches about a year ago, I now have two Hamiltons and an Oris. Both Hamiltons have treated me wonderfully and I'm in the market for a third. I love the brand and will probably go broke because I lack any self restraint.
I wouldn't put Eterna or Oris in the same category as Certina, Tissot, Victorinox or Squale. And Oris, although fantastic, is not at Eternas level either.Have no issue with Hammie quality, it is the prices that turn me off. In short, I think they are overpriced for what a buyer gets.
To me an Oris, Eterna, Certina, Tissot, Victorinox, Squale, offer similar quality at generally lower prices.
