Recently acquired a Hamilton Khaki (quartz with black face). It looks a lot like an official military watch, but dresses it up with the following features:

* Sapphire crystal, flat and slightly domed (most military watches have use acrylic). Its much more reflective acrylic, not much good if you are a sniper, but it's much harder so it resists scratches.
* 100m waterproof, partly due to its screw back (most military watches are 50m or under)
* Looks wider than an average military watch
* Has spring bars with a thick padded leather lined fabric strap (most military watches have fixed bars and have a simple nylon strap)
* Has a huge crown like classic mil watches but it is made of bead blasted SS and is signed with an embossed H
* The dial is seperated into 3 parts, the center is shiny black and the mid ring with the numerals is comprised of tiny concentric circles (most mil watches are matt black). It also has marks between the seconds which mil watches dont have
* It has super luminova lume on all 3 hands including the tip of the seconds hand. All of the numerals glow as well as the dot markers

I rather like it! The quality is fantastic, it has the solidness of actual military watches with an extra fine finish. Much nicer than any Seiko i've owned!
