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.
Hamilton is also is the Timekeeping sponsor of some of the most prestigious Canadian Aviation organizations.

KHAKI CHRONO WORLDTIMER
It’s a small world–but precision timekeeping in the age of real and virtual globetrotting is a big task. The Hamilton Chrono Worldtimer is a stylish quartz chronograph with the ability to accurately tell the time across the world’s 24 major cities standard time zones. Designed in collaboration with aerobatic pilot Nicolas Ivanoff, this timepiece will be on the radar screen of pilots and all other individuals with broad horizons and a love of dynamism that looks cool. It’s the perfect co-pilot for travellers planning precise itineraries, or long-distance friends wanting to make a catch-up call without it turning into a wake-up call.
In our daily lives, counting minutes rather than hours is far more important. This also applies to pilots. The Chrono Worldtimer reflects this reality with an easy-to-read, centered chrono counter spanning 12 minutes, to emphasize the importance of this time unit. It also has pilot friendly, minute countdown intervals clearly marked on the bezel. Signalling the close collaboration between design and performance are the yellow markings of the first four minutes on the main time display. This pays tribute to the aerobatics inspiration, being the length of the freestyle program in competitions, with a penalty applying if it’s exceeded.
Ease of operation–even at high speeds – is a high priority for aviation watches. The 10 o’clock pusher is the switch between chronograph functionality and the worldtimer facility. Once in worldtimer mode, easy bi-directional adjustment enables the smart complication to calculate the current time in the zone requested from a choice of 24 locations. Ensuring all globetrotters are always on the same page, particularly pilots commuting between many time zones, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is shown when the 10 o’clock pusher is briefly pressed. Aviation influences every aspect of the watch’s design, inside and out, right down to the yellow and black striped markings on the mode display. The movement is a new, specially developed Hamilton quartz chronograph, the H-41e, automatically adjusting for daylight saving time across the globe.

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…
