Hamilton Khaki SkyMaster UTC Automatic Watch - Complication and Elegance

Feb 04, 2011
In constant pursuit of originality and excellence, the house of Hamilton has created its new Khaki SkyMaster UTC automatic watch, which is both a complicated timekeeping instrument and an elegant accessory.

The new Hamilton watch is set in a round-shaped stainless steel case, which measures 42 mm in diameter. It is outlined by a noble bezel, crafted from the same material. The case is equipped with three crowns, located at 2, 4 and 9 o’clock. The model is built to be water-resistant up to 300 meters.

Embraced by the case is a functional and attractive dial, dressed in off-white or black. It is completed with contrasting Arabic numerals. The number at 3 o’clock is replaced by a rectangular date aperture. Taking care of hours, minutes and seconds are centralized steel hands.

The new Hamilton Khaki SkyMaster UTC automatic watch also offers a second time-zone, also known as GMT or UTC function. The originality of the model lies in the fact that the UTC time is not indicated in a conventional "1-24" format.

The user should add or subtract a certain amount of time from or to the current time, indicated by means of the main hour hand on the main chapter ring.

It should be also noted that the abbreviation “CAY” stands for “Cayenne-Rochambeau Airport,” which is located in French Guiana (UTC/GMT -3 hours). The letters “NOU”, meanwhile, denote “Aeroport de Noumea – La Tontouta” in New Caledonia (UTC/GMT +11 hours). Protecting the watch face is a top-quality sapphire crystal.

The new Hamilton watch is designed around a Swiss made self-winding ETA 2893-2 movement. It stores enough power to animate the model for as long as 42 hours.

The final touch is provided by a brown leather strap, embellished with white stitching.
