No matter the preferences of those on your list this year, Hamilton’s experience designing and producing novel timepieces means that they have the requisite model diversity to bring joy to the curmudgeonly and mirthful alike. So, whether your loved ones prefer hitting the slopes or sipping eggnog in an unsightly sweater, take a look at some of Hamilton’s festive offerings and add a wintery mix to the forecast of that brainstorm.
For the Tres Chic Traditionalist – Hamilton Intra-Matic Automatic 40mm (H38425540)
Given the hustle and bustle of the season, sometimes simple is better. It is reliable, conventional, and stress-free. When in-laws, shopping, baking, and raking make for a chaotic experience, the Hamilton Intra-Matic is a welcome anchor to the beauty of simplicity. Measuring 40mm in diameter, this classic three-hand watch features a mesmerizing blue dial encircled by an eggshell minute ring. This combination is further accented by applied nickeled indices and hands complete with Super-LuminNova. At six o’clock is a discrete date window that maintains the symmetry while adding utility. Powered by the H-10 automatic movement, it maintains a power reserve of 80 hours. This time-only offering is ideal for anyone who appreciates design and sophistication that can adapt to any occasion. The Hamilton Intra-Matic retails for $995.
The Star atop the Horology Tree – Hamilton Intra-Matic Automatic Chronograph 40mm (H38416111)
Another gem from the Intra-Matic lineup is this chronograph, which pulls inspiration from the 1960s. The crème dial contrasts beautifully with the black dual counters and tachymeter ring. With the same nickeled indices and hands as the previously discussed model, the chronograph is a bit flashier accompanied by the Milanese mesh bracelet. The brightness of the high polish stainless steel throughout the case and bracelet is reminiscent of sixties muscle car chrome, while the sportiness of the pushers and dial add a racing-adjacent vibe.
The engine that runs this well-oiled machine is Hamilton’s H-31 automatic movement, which has a power reserve of 60 hours. Water resistance is rated to 100 meters, and a 40mm diameter ensures a comfortable wrist presence for all types. This winter, whether raising a toast or timing a roast, the Intra-Matic Chronograph, priced at $2,245, is up for the job.
Pairs Well with Snowshoes – Hamilton Khaki Field King (H64465733)
If your list contains a more adventurous spirit, the type of rugged soul who braves blustery blizzards, the Hamilton Khaki Field King may be just the right tool for the job. The rigors of winter vary greatly, from chopping wood to installing tire chains, and in these times, a durable watch can prove to be a welcome companion. The Khaki Field King measures 40mm in diameter and features a full PVD coated stainless steel case. Day and date are displayed at 12 o’clock, and Arabic numerals on the dial display both standard and military time. This classic field watch aesthetic is made all the more practical by the generous application of lume to the hands and indices. There is a prominent crown guard in place to ensure that the watch is well armored and ready to take on any challenge. The black case/dial combination makes for a discrete timepiece that maintains a casual presence. Behind the mellow façade, however, it has the requisite moxie to handle some serious seasonal stressors, should the need arise. The Khaki Field King retails for $695.
For the Festive Flier – Hamilton Khaki Aviation Converter (H76726530)
Where the Khaki King focused on the barebones essentials, the Khaki Aviator Converter is more complicated in appearance as well as functionality. This 44mm chronograph features a bi-directional rotating slide rule bezel that allows for quick calculation of various mathematical equations. Pilot-specific factors such as airspeed and rate of climb are within reach, as well as more ground-bound tasks like unit and currency conversion. Needless to say, this bezel, coupled with precision accuracy and chronograph functionality, makes it the “Swiss army knife” of timepieces. Though usefulness was clearly in the forefront of design, the red accents on the bezel and center seconds stand out like holly berries among the ivy. The Khaki Aviation Converter is priced at $1,845.
To Help the Trendy Relative Reminisce – Hamilton PSR (H52414130)
If one of the lucky individuals on your list this year swears by the efficiency and quality of LED holiday lighting, the Hamilton PSR might be just the watch for them. Based on a cutting edge release of the 1970s, known as the Pulsar, this digital quartz watch brings its own eclectic retro-futurist style to the table without a single unnecessary garnish. Featuring a full stainless steel bracelet and case, it measures 40.8×34.7mm. The charming rectangular shape is entirely in sync with the widely tapered bracelet. The most compelling component, however, has to be the black display with LCD & OLED hybrid technology. The intensity of the glowing crimson numerals is enough to make even a certain iconic reindeer envious. The brilliance of the display is protected by an anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal, and the watch is rated to 100m of water resistance. The Hamilton PSR retails for $745.
Regardless of how you celebrate this year, Hamilton has an offering that will make the holidays unforgettable. The time-honored tradition of gifting a watch is a way to share tidings of comfort and joy to those whose names are inscribed on your list. So stoke the fire and let the merrymaking continue by looking through the rest of Hamilton’s catalog on its website.
