When it comes to unfussy, reliable watches, it's hard to beat Hamilton. This is especially true when it comes to its aviation-inspired pilot watches. The Khaki Pilot Pioneer Mechanical Chronograph builds on the legacy of the Khaki Pilot Pioneer Mechanical, adding chronograph functionality (obviously) for a design that mirrors watches worn by Britain's Royal Air Force in the 1970s. At 40mm and featuring Hamilton's hand-wound H-51-Si movement, it's hard not to love the classic appeal of this everyday watch.

Rooted by a Vibram Megagrip outsole and responsive Hoka ProFlyX midsole, the Tecton X should deliver the springy support Hoka is known for — no matter how far you stray off-road.
