Hamilton Khaki Takeoff Limited Edition Watch Review

The limited edition Hamilton Khaki Takeoff is now available. The watch is inspired by the Hamilton elapsed time clock produced during World War II, considered at that time to be the most complicated aircraft clock.

Celebrating Hamilton's close cooperation with leading air squadrons and aerobatic pilot Nicolas Ivanoff, the Khaki Takeoff is a limited edition of 1,999 numbered pieces.

The timepiece takes inspiration from cockpit instruments with a bi-directional turning flange, driven by the bezel, which has the capacity to record a countdown. The case can be detached from the wristwatch and presented in a unique storage box.

The black and yellow colour scheme accurately reflects the appearance of its World War II ancestor, while the hands reflect the classic hands of traditional pilots' watches. A yellow, plane-shaped pointer appears on the chronograph second hand.

The Hamilton Khaki Takeoff is powered by the Hamilton H-31 movement with 60 hours of power reserve. It has a 46.3 mm stainless steel with black PVD case, and the crown is positioned at 12 o'clock for easy accessibility. Additional features include a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and water resistance to 50 metres.
