As Hamilton enters the 120th anniversary of land, sky and ocean timing, the Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Limited Edition watch recreates the brand’s deep ocean-era history. This precision timer is a carefully contemporary interpretation of the 1940’s Hamilton marine astronomical clock, with dual uses for watches and table clocks. The conversion between the two forms is extremely clever and simple, highlighting the essence of modernity. Based on the company’s year of establishment, this watch was issued in total of 1,892, each with a serial number and an exclusive Pará rubber tree box that reproduces the ‘predecessors’ of wartime. Its design combines a proven pioneering spirit with a commitment to detail to create extraordinary looks and performance. The wearer can choose to enjoy contemporary accurate timekeeping on the wrist or proudly place the watch on the table or in the display box-keep it in a safe and level position, and it will definitely not cause fashion and operability. Any negative effects.
The original Hamilton nautical astronomical clock showed unparalleled accuracy and was called ‘zero error’ perfection by the Naval Observatory. Today’s Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Limited Edition watches share the same great ambition, aiming directly at the highest standards of reliability. The Swiss-made manual-winding mechanical movement is responsible for driving this watch. Its exclusive decoration and unique engraving are proof of the signature watchmaking craftsmanship and highlight the brand’s 120th anniversary milestone. At 6 o’clock, the continuously moving second hand perfectly matches the hour and minute hands. The waterproof and durable performance of up to 10ATM (100 meters) marks the perfect end.
The driving force of the 2012 Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Limited Edition is nostalgia, and it reflects the latest watchmaking technology and materials. The hand-crafted marine blue hands are reminiscent of the unique blue hands of the 1940s Hamilton marine astronomical clock, the traditional case shape integrates the leather strap link ring and the finely-trimmed bezel, and the silver satin-finished dial shows classic luxury . The tailor-made stainless steel universal table clock, or the stitched leather strap that secures the watch firmly to the wrist, is the ultimate design bridge between the past and the present. In 2012, the marine astronomical clock looked wearable, versatile, and stylish—and perfectly suited for terrestrial life.
