Basel 2012 preview: Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer inspired by marine chronometer

After this year’s successful Hamilton Pan Europ limited edition (I like mine a lot), Hamilton is debuting yet another vintage inspired watch at Baselworld 2012 in March. The Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer limited edition is modelled on the marine chronometers Hamilton made for the US Navy in the forties. It can be worn on a leather strap, or housed in the accompanying Para rubber tree wood box as a table clock. The case is 46.5 mm in diameter and inside is a Unitas 6498 manual wind movement. Water resistance is 100 m. This is limited to 1892 pieces. The retail price will be approximately CHF2800.

Like the Pan Europ, this looks like a well designed and reasonably priced winner. – SJX
