The New Hamilton Khaki Pilot Auto Day Date
2018 is a big year in aviation for Hamilton as it's celebrate 100 years of timing the skies. With 2018 Khaki Pilot collection Hamilton is bringing together the very best of classic Hamilton aviation look and feel from collections past and adding a modern twist to create pilots’ watches that perfectly represent American spirit and Swiss precision.
Functionality is guaranteed at Hamilton and the new models have H-40 automatic movements with extended 80-hour power reserves so they’re ready to fly again even after a long weekend of downtime.
The new sand-colored Super-LumiNova indexes and numerals glow neon green in the dark and offer enhanced readability to ensure an accurate dial reading even during night flights.
Authentic aviation look and feel
With ultra-readable dials, and the day displayed at 12 o’clock, they’re reminiscent of analog cockpit instruments from vintage aircraft while the new color schemes and PVD treatment offer a modern take.
Dark brown PVD treated stainless steel with a brandy brown leather strap; Steel with a desert brown leather strap and full steel with a metal bracelet are the three versions that make up the collection.
This new collection also sees the introduction of the next generation of Hamilton leather straps. Inspired by the leather flying jackets worn by top U.S. military pilots, the rugged, lived-in look of the straps is authentic to the look of leather that has spent a life in the cockpit under the stresses, strains and G-force experienced by pilots. With stylish hot stamping on the leather, the desert and brandy brown straps blend perfectly with the brown hues of the cases and dials.
