One of the established elites of the American watchmaking industry, Hamilton Watch Company started its existence as a small pocket watches manufacture, during the second half of the 19th century, in Lancaster Pennsylvania, USA.
However, the brand rapidly developed into a prestigious wristwatch manufacture, internationally known for creating the well-known “Watches of Railroad Accuracy”, highly appreciated for their precision, functionality, reliability and modern sporty design.
Defined by an unmistakable bold American style, Hamilton watches costarred in iconic movies like The Talented Mr. Ripley, Independence Day, Lethal Weapon 4, You’ve Got Mail, or Fight Club¸ and fascinated many celebrities and VIPs, and among those, maybe the most important, the King himself, Elvis Presley, to whom Hamilton yearly dedicates commemorative lines.
Recently, the brand presented another remarkable addition to its iconic Hamilton Khaki Navy Watch Collection, the sophisticated Hamilton Khaki Navy below Zero 1000M H78515333 Watch an outstanding diver’s model, especially created for professional divers, who dare to go down to 1000 meters beneath the ocean’s surface.
The timepiece features a robust stainless steel case, measuring 46 mm in diameter, and 12.5 mm in thickness, which demonstrates a powerful sporty appeal, enhanced by the brushed finish. The sturdy architecture of the case incorporates a unidirectional rotating bezel, fitted with a luminescent dot at 12 o’clock position, four octagonal screws, a screw-down crown and crown guards, a helium pressure release valve, and a solid case-back, individualized with a fish, and a diving mask engraving.
Bold and masculine, the model reveals a minimalist black dial, nicely completed with white Arabic numeral hour markers, and sward-shaped hands treated with luminescent substances for optimal time legibility in any light conditions. Asides from the traditional central hours, minutes and seconds functions, Hamilton Khaki Navy below Zero 1000M H78515333 Watch also ensures a date function, presented through an aperture located at 3 o’clock.
At the heart of the new Hamilton Khaki Navy below Zero 1000M H78515333 Watch beats a top-quality, Swiss-made, self-winding mechanical movement, the ETA caliber 2826, which incorporates 25 jewels, which confers the advantage of 45-hours power-reserve.
A very stylish choice, both underwater or on solid ground, Hamilton Khaki Navy below Zero 1000M H78515333 Watch comes on black rubber strap, and, has a couple other variations performed in 18-karat red gold case, or black PVD-coated steel; as far as the price tag is concerned, we expect it will cost around $1,500.00.
