Following 2011′s attractively styled Hamilton Pan Europ watch, Hamilton has released another exciting vintage inspired watch at Baselworld 2012. The Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer is a homage to the marine chronometers that Hamilton made for the US Navy in the 1940s (see pictures below), and can be worn on a strap or displayed in a marine chronometer-style box and used as a table clock (and conversation piece!). The retail price will be approximately $3,000, certainly an attractive option to other higher end marine chronometer-inspired pieces out there (e.g. Glashütte Original’s Senator Chronometer Marine Chronometer set or Montblanc’s 1858 Régulateur Nautique set). These beauties are limited to 1892 pieces worldwide, comes in a 46.5mm steel case and manual wind Unitas 6498 movement. More images after the jump.
