Hamilton Launch Khaki X-Patrol Timpiece

By Paul Joseph

American watch-makers Hamilton have created a new pilot watch to mark the brand’s 120th anniversary.

The high-tech chronograph is billed as a “portable cockpit for navigating lifestyles”, providing conversions for distances, altitudes, volumes and weights. The conversions are read by unscrewing the crown at 9 o’clock and positioning an arrow for the first unit of measurement on the outer bezel scale.

Comprising highly resistant materials, the timepiece comes in a 42mm case and integrates the new H21 caliber with 60 hours power reserve, plus water resistance up to 100 metres.

Black or silver dials, with contrasting reflectors, are complemented by a black leather strap with fine white stitching, a sporty black rubber attachment, or a metal bracelet.

Meanwhile a nod to aviation is further evident on the back of the watch, which features a propeller-inspired design, offering regular glimpses of the automatic chronograph movement in action.

The Khaki X-Patrol timepiece is available priced at $1,695.

Hamilton Watches were founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA in 1892.
