Meet Hamilton Khaki Navy Sub Auto Chrono Watch

May 30, 2013
Hamilton proudly unveils its new Khaki Navy Sub Auto Chrono watch. The ultra-modern timepiece, based on present-day technology and materials, has been inspired by the iconic Hamilton Piping Rock piece born in the year 1928 and still found on the list of collectors’ favorites. It served as an official timekeeper of the New York Yankees baseball team.

The new Hamilton watch features a round dial and a tonneau-shaped case that stands out due to its unusual open corners showing tiny glimpses of the wearer’s wrist.

The spirit of the sea is reflected via every detail of the watch’s design, paying tribute to the history of the brand, famous as a supplier of timepieces to some of the most prestigious navies in the world. Hamilton watches have many times starred in aquatic-themed movies, representing vital equipment for courageous military divers in The Frogmen (1951) and an experience in shark-avoidance in the underwater action movie, Into the Blue (2005).

The timepiece is 300-meter water-resistant. The case-construction incorporates a case-back embossed with an illustration of a manta ray and an extremely sporty bezel. The bezel has been designed to provide a perfect grip - presented in rubber, it emerges from the stainless steel of the case creating an appealing 3D effect.

The 43mm case, reliable and robust, featuring polished and sandblasted surfaces, also boasts an easy-to-grip, screw-down crown and pushers that will make you think of diving bottle valves. The central part of the black and gunmetal gray dial is traditionally embellished with an H-pattern. The dial is completed with applied indices coated with Super-LumiNova.

The heart of the Khaki Navy Sub Auto Chrono watch is an automatic mechanical movement - the propriety H-31 characterized by utmost accuracy and stability. It gives an advantage of a 60-hour power reserve.

The Hamilton Khaki Navy Sub Auto Chrono watch is secured to the wrist on a sporty black or orange strap fitted with a pin buckle shaped like an ‘H’.
