Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Watch Review

 

Hamilton has revealed three unlimited versions of its Khaki Navy Pioneer watch.

The Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Limited Edition, a contemporary interpretation of the Hamilton marine chronometers produced in the 1940s, was revealed at BaselWorld 2012. Chronometers were traditionally used by the US Navy as an alternative to radio signal, to calculate longitude and plot location and direction.

Designed in tribute to its wartime ancestors, the Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Limited Edition can be used as both a wristwatch and table clock. Owners can display the timepiece in its Pará rubber tree wooden presentation box, or attach it to the brown leather strap (store within the box) to wear on the wrist.
The watch is limited to 1,892 pieces, in reference to the brand's foundation year, and is available to order for £2,130. It has a 46.5 mm stainless steel case, and is powered by Swiss-made, hand-winding mechanical ETA 6498-2 movement. Exclusive decoration and engraving honours the brand's 120th anniversary.

Hamilton has also created three unlimited Khaki Navy Pioneer watches, with a choice of silver, black or blue dial. The unlimited model has a 40 mm steel case and anti-reflective glass. It is powered by ETA 2895 automatic movement, and has a see-through case back.

The Hamilton Khaky Navy Pioneer is available for £810, and comes in a black presentation box.
