Look at Baselworld 2018 – The Luxurious Hamilton Khaki! A reminder of an almost forgotten era where the brand lay in frozen hibernation ala Captain America, waiting to be unfrozen and sharing its unabashed masculinity with the world.
A Swiss watch brand now based in Bienne, Switzerland, the Hamilton Watch Company had its genesis as an American watchmaking enterprise incorporated since 1892 making pocket watches and wristwatches. Hamilton earned a reputation for railroad watches. Given the size of the watches, there’s a nice historical synergy with the Baselworld 2018 Hamilton Khaki 50mm.
Hamilton Khaki History: US Rail companies purchased close to all of Hamilton’s production but as the market switched from pocket watches to wrist watches after World War I, Hamilton’s nascent dominance was nipped in the bud with the onset of World War II when Hamilton retooled its manufacture to make bomb timers and munitions for the military.
Thus, the size and modernity of the new Hamilton Khaki 50mm remount us to an almost forgotten era where the brand lay in frozen hibernation like Captain America, waiting to be unfrozen and sharing its unabashed masculinity with the world.
Most notably, the Baselworld 2018 Hamilton Khaki 50 stands out for its dial of Arabic numerals, made fully of Super-LumiNova, each almost 1mm high. Giving the dial of the new Khaki 50 a nice depth – more importantly, given the simplicity of this element contrasted with its visual potency.
As befitting Hamilton’s military provenance, the new Baselworld 2018 Hamilton Khaki 50 is also available in a variety of three NATO leather straps fitted with H-buckles and impeccably, a good coat of anti-reflection, a necessity given the large face of the timepiece.
