Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Watch

March 16, 2012

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.
