Hamilton this watch brand in the usual time we introduce the space is not much, perhaps mainly due to the brand’s quartz watch too much, the lack of people can seize the bright spot, positioning too close to the people and other reasons. However, sometimes, this was born in the United States, is now Swatch Group covered watch brand, but still able to give us a little surprise, especially in the aftertaste of its rich history of the time. This year, in the 2017 Basel Watch Fair is about to open the occasion, the brand to those who have the iconic classic chronograph as the root cause, brought a good appearance, retro atmosphere, and the price is still close to the people of the automatic chronograph, It is the new Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 chronograph watch.
Chronographs are an extremely important part of Hamilton’s past history, especially between the 1960s and the 1970s. It happened that the brand had a very sensitive market judgment, and then bought Büren, moved to Biel, Switzerland, and later became part of SSIH . But also at that time, the brand to create a lot of excellent watches, some later became a very valuable collection of existence, such as Fontainebleau chronograph watch , While the other is very representative, and now still watch watch enthusiasts are sought after the timepiece, is the 1968 Hamilton Chronograph B watch . This piece of time is a typical “reverse panda” disk style design , and is the first of the series equipped with a manual winding movement of the dual-disc chronograph watch. Later, the Po Ling / Hamilton / TAG Heuer to create a Caliber 11 automatic chronograph movement, can be located in the crown on the left side of the design to identify, since then, the brand in the field of time will take the automatic On the road.
The classic chronograph of the 1960s is the source of inspiration for the Intra-Matic 68 chronograph, which is now a modern design style, but the retro atmosphere is still strong. In this table, Hamilton carefully retained a few sixties and seventies chronograph watch on the details of the elements, including the appearance of 1968 Chronograph B and equipped with a self-winding movement Chrono-Matic table On the calendar window. Therefore, we can see in the new table on these very classic design elements, such as slim bezel, the right side of the case of the mushroom head button and crown and give a sharp texture of the lugs, etc., the overall line Quite simple and simple, did not drip with water. Anyway, from the visual experience, I believe this new Intra-Matic 68 chronograph watch has overcome a lot of fans in the hearts of the high ground.
In addition, the new Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 chronograph watch also uses the “reverse panda” design layout, as well as the disk around the rectification of the speed scale and other design elements, to that era of the classic chronograph Pay tribute. Of course, the 6-point calendar window is the same as the automatic style at the same time, but it may not be a must, but taking into account the needs of modern consumers moved over. Also, this dial, as well as the pointer, etc., are used with a certain degree of design. Brand for this Intra-Matic 68 watch is equipped with a very retro atmosphere is very strong black diamond leather strap, and watch the overall look looks very much ride. There is only one place that has changed dramatically: size. The original style of the case diameter of 36mm, and now it is of course to follow the development and needs of the times , because it has changed from 36mm to 42mm, more than a full 6mm. Although we feel 38 or 39mm may be more appropriate, but the size of the words, at least for most of the table fans, is also a very good choice.
In this Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 watch is equipped with a very modern movement – Cal.H-31-type self-winding movement. This movement is based on Valjoux 7753 polished, can provide 60 hours of power reserve, and at the same time using the improved gossamer in order to get better timing performance.
