In 1968, Hamilton launched two watches, including Chronograph A with a white dial and a small black dial, and Chronograph B with two white dials on a black background, forming a ‘reversal panda’ ‘face. This dial design was all the rage in the 1960s and 1970s, and after years of refinement, fans have continued to grow. Just at the Basel 2017, we saw a new limited-edition black-and-white two-color inversion ‘Panda’ dial, inspired by the historical model of Chronograph B in 1968, with a distinctive personality and a simple black and white design, it is bound to Admired by collectors today.
The attention to detail is a key element of the new Intra-Matic 68 watch, many of which are almost the same as the prototype. The dial is particularly loyal to the original ‘reversed’ panda face design, and the outer ring surrounds the white tachometer scale. Black and white colors form the main theme of the watch, including the date display on a black background, snow-white middle chronograph seconds hand and black lacquered chronograph hands.
The Intra-Matic 68 automatic chronograph inherits the prestigious original design, with retro-style buttons on both sides of the crown and the stainless steel case back, which will surely delight Hamilton watch fans and collectors. The arched dial and curved hands further accentuate the vintage charm and heritage of the watch. The black calfskin strap is trimmed, crafted using traditional strap-making techniques, and carefully punched to show the 60’s sporty style.
The polished stainless steel case is equipped with an H-31 self-winding movement, which has a 60-hour power reserve, and ample power fits the modern busy rhythm of life. Other parts have also been adjusted to cater to contemporary fashion, including a 42 mm diameter case larger than the original, and the hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova® for a clearer reading.
