Hamilton Khaki Aviation Converter Collection: Khaki Aviation Converter Automatic, Khaki Aviation Converter GMT Automatic and Khaki Aviation Converter Automatic Chronograph

Swiss watch brand Hamilton extends its range of pilot watches with models that make conversions and calculations easy. With the Khaki Aviation Converter, Hamilton is enabling crucial flying calculations to be performed on the wrist of modern aviators.

The watch’s distinguishing feature is a bi-directional rotating bezel, whose logarithmic gradations interact with the fixed scale around the dial, creating a ‘slide rule’ enabling mathematical calculations while in flight. This can be applied to critical factors like airspeed, distance, fuel consumption, rate of climb or descent and flight time – in fact, it follows the same principles as the E6B “Whiz Wheel”, a paper flight computer that’s still used widely in pilot training today.

The slide-rule bezel is also handy for carrying out various unit conversions: kilometers/nautical miles, pounds/kilograms, feet/meters for instance, or currency conversions for those flying internationally.
