It was a Hamilton watch used on the first US postal service flight between Washington and New York, so aviation is nothing new to the brand whose prestigious aviation heritage dates back to 1918 and has included the rank of official supplier to the US Armed Forces since 1914.
Geared toward the skyward bound, working with leading air squadrons and world famous pilots, Hamilton’s Khaki Aviation line is renowned for providing classic aviator styling and functions specific to pilots’ needs. Bursting with character rooted in aviation and the instruments that guide it, immeasurably technical and painstakingly precise, the big, aggressive Khaki X-Wind Auto Chrono is no exception to this rule.
Racy black PVD decor underscores the line’s close ties with aviation, emphasizing its reputation for precision and technicity. The Khaki X-Wind Auto Chrono is powered by a Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement that has been modified into the Hamilton caliber H-21 – upping the power reserve to an appropriately muscular 60 hours.
Now available at Rivoli and Hour Choice stores across the UAE, the timepiece with leather strap is priced at AED 4,775 while the timepiece with metal strap is priced at AED 4,600.
