The new X-Copter by Hamilton is fully equipped for action, with high-flying design and functionality. The watch boasts a practical Fahrenheit/Celsius temperature converter and Maximum Take-off Weight (M.T.O.W.) calculator. Design detail is also dedicated to the helicopter theme.
The design of the X-Copter clearly signals its message of precision and finesse. The bezel bears fine markings indicating compass bearings, temperature scales and seconds – cockpit style. These are contrasted with easily visible key numbers for rapid orientation, assisted by the pointed arrow hands showing the way.
Orange touches add dynamism and are reminiscent of helicopter navigation. There is even a bold letter ‘H’ at 6 o’clock – the ultimate miniaturized ‘helipad’ – and a cut out propeller at the rear of the case to reveal the automatic ‘motor’ at work.
The chronograph counters, displaying the hours, minutes and seconds, are framed with small dots like the rivets used in aerospace construction. Access to the watch’s functionality is via easy to grip buttons with lacquered tops. The M.T.O.W. calculator is positioned at 9 o’clock – an eye-catching extension of the minutes counter. And holding position is the domain of stitched straps in sporty black or orange rubber, or an elegant metal bracelet for the true blade runner at heart.

M. T. O. W.
The M.T.O.W. of a helicopter represents the heaviest weight at which it meets all the airworthiness requirements applicable to it. At its M.T.O.W., the helicopter complies with all the structural and performance requirements stipulated by its class. On the Hamilton X-Copter, the kilogram unit is used for measurement.
