Swiss watchmaker Hamilton has drawn on its flying heritage to inspire the first of its timepieces ever to integrate aluminum, the material that propelled the aerospace sector to new heights with its use in planes, space shuttles and even rocket fuel. This versatile metal facilitates design that brings the magic of flight to the wearer’s imagination and unrivalled comfort to their wrist. The range comprises four shades associated with outdoor action in the field, from a sultry sand colour through to khaki green, and from bold black to the navy of pristine pilot uniforms.
Hamilton gives an unmistakably contemporary touch to a new family of watches inspired by pieces it created for the British Royal Air Force in the 1970s. The case is asymmetrical and the crystal with its high-tech antireflective coating has shaping alluding to pioneering models from the brand’s rich history.Performance is always on the itinerary for the Khaki Pilot Pioneer Aluminum and a turning flange with a countdown function is set in motion via a crown conveniently positioned at 2 o’clock.
The Hamilton H-10 movement contains 80 hours of power reserve to accommodate high-flying lifestyles. A special metal treatment developed by Hamilton also ensures the cases’ hardness and durability, as well as their capacity to take on intensive colour shades. The light weight of the case, in combination with aluminum’s ability to adapt very quickly to body temperature, means that wearers often forget it’s on their wrist between time-checks.
Easy to read digits and indexes with Super-LumiNova® stand to attention against the bold base colors of each of the members of the Khaki Pilot Pioneer Aluminum quartet. The impact is reminiscent of a glance into a dynamic aircraft cockpit.
Pilot watch hands integrating polishing or a black lacquered finish extend the theme. All styling elements showcase the refined Hamilton expertise for using modern design and materials to salute the brand’s enviable aviation heritage.
Colour-coordinated NATO straps enhanced with leather inserts and loops, plus an aluminum pin on the buckle, confirm Hamilton’s love of exploring previously undiscovered territories in today’s “material world”.
