Hamilton Baselworld 2018 Watch Review
Friday - 04 May 2018
2018 marks 100 years of timing the skies for Hamilton Watches. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a trio of aviation inspired designs. It’s been one amazing flight, with Hamilton’s pilot watches steering the way in aviation since 1918. Join Hamilton as they mark their first century of conquering the skies.
The X-Wind Auto Chrono debuts the world’s first drift-angle calculator in a watch – a feature that allows for pilots to accurately calculate and record the crosswinds they will encounter on a planned journey. Rugged and stylish, the revolutionary chronograph demands attention with its precise yet functional character and adventurous spirit. The perfect co-pilot for a smooth flight.
As a tribute to their partnership with Air Zermatt, Hamilton present a striking timepiece. The glacial blue markings and hands leap from the black dial to reflect the helicopter mountain rescue teams logo, which features as a counterweight of the seconds hand. A highly functional design that guarantees legibility especially during those night flights. With an 80 hour power reserve the special edition is always ready to navigate the skies.
Designed to celebrate Hamilton’s role as the Official Timekeeper of the Red Bull Air Race 2018, the timepiece brings a blend of chic aviation style and Swiss-made precision. The sports chronograph captures the spirit of the thrilling air race that brings speed and precision to the skies. The highly legible dial boasts a grey dial with red and blue accents and a checkered flag at 12 o’clock to bring the excitement of the competition to the wrist. Proud of their contribution to the aviation racing world, the case back features an engraving of the Red Bull Air Race.
