Hamilton was founded in 1892 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA. Their watches have been timing the skies since 1919, when the pioneering pilots of the era put their trust in the precision of its watches and navigation instruments. In addition to keeping the first American airmail service on track, Hamilton became the official watch of TWA, Eastern, United and Northwest Airlines, in the 1930s. Today, each watch features the unrivalled precision of the latest Swiss movements and technologies.

In Canada, Hamilton is proud to support the Canadian Forces Snowbirds and worked with the crew to design an exclusive Hamilton Khaki Aviation only distributed to the Snowbirds members.

DURING THE ATAC

CONFERENCE AND TRADESHOW 2017

 

The brand has been timing the skies since 1919, when the pioneering pilots of the era put their trust in the precision of its watches and navigation instruments. In addition to keeping the first American airmail service on track, Hamilton became the official watch of TWA, Eastern, United and Northwest in the 1930s. Adventure joined accuracy as these instruments demonstrated their unrivaled expertise partnering the first American coast-to-coast air services which took commercial flying into the modern age.

Today, many squadrons use Hamilton watches as standard equipment, including South Korea’s 121st fighter Squadron, the Patrulla Aspa from Spain, the Patrol Squadron Forty from United States, and the Apache and F-16 Demo Team from the Netherlands, among others. Hamilton uses these associations to deepen its understanding of pilot needs and the watch functions required to develop timepieces designed for pilots, such as the Khaki Takeoff for Air Zermatt, a transport and rescue helicopter unit in the Alps.


THE HAMILTON KHAKI AIR RACE 

 A special edition watch will be released for the occasion, the Khaki Air Race, available in two versions: a Team Hamilton model with orange and black dial and special case back printing to enhance Hamilton and Nicolas Ivanoff strong relationship. And an Official Timekeeper model with blue and grey dial with a red second hand honoring Red Bull Air Race colors and different case back printing. Both versions have a stainless steel case in either 38 or 42mm size, with a choice of black leather strap or stainless steel bracelet.

SWISS MADE, AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT, INTEGRATED AVIATION FUNCTIONS

The sky is the limit

Fasten your seatbelts to discover the Hamilton collection of pilots’ timepieces.

Each of these dynamic watches makes a smooth round trip between design and functionality. Dedicated aviation features are presented in stunning shapes and top quality materials. The point of departure for the Hamilton pilots’ watches is almost a century of proven Hamilton aviation heritage. Their destination is uncompromising accuracy and attention to detail.

Hamilton has been timing the skies since 1919, when the pioneering pilots of the era put their trust in the precision of its watches and navigation instruments. In addition to keeping the first American airmail service on track, Hamilton became the official watch of TWA, Eastern, United and Northwest in the 1930s. Adventure joined accuracy as these instruments demonstrated their unrivalled expertise ‘co-piloting’ expeditions with destinations as challenging as the North Pole, and partnering the first American coast to coast air services which took commercial flying into the modern age. This spirit certainly lives on. For example, Hamilton is the Timekeeping Sponsor of EAA Air Venture at Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA, regarded as the world’s greatest aviation celebration, as well as a partner of Tannkosh in Tannheim, Germany, the biggest flying meeting in Europe.

Today, fuelled by this proud nostalgia, Hamilton gives craftsmanship and technology dual control to create ‘cockpits for the wrist’. On board is a winning combination of Swiss watchmakers and highly experienced pilots, who together ensure the integration of complex, relevant functions into objects of beauty. Currently taking his place on the Hamilton design ‘flight deck’ is leading French aerobatic pilot, Nicolas Ivanoff. And if he is happy to put his trust in a Hamilton watch at speeds of up to 450 km ph and forces of up to 10 g, the sky really is the only limit…
