Hamilton  - Chrono Worldtimer

Hamilton Chrono Worldtimer

Designed in collaboration with aerobatic pilot Nicolas Ivanoff, the Hamilton Chrono Worldtimer takes 24 time zones and features an automatic adjustment of daylight saving time.

For pilotes, minutes are far more important than hours. To emphasize the importance of this time unit, the Chrono Worldtimer features an easy-to-read centered chrono counter spanning 12 minutes. It also has pilot-friendly, minute countdown intervals clearly marked on the bezel. Signalling the close collaboration between design and performance are the yellow markings of the first four minutes on the main time display. This pays tribute to the aerobatics inspiration, being the length of the freestyle program in competitions, with a penalty applying if it’s exceeded.

Ease of operation is a high priority for aviation watches. The 10 o’clock pusher is the switch between chronograph functionality and the worldtimer facility. Once in worldtimer mode, easy bi-directional adjustment enables the smart complication to calculate the current time in the zone requested from a choice of 24 locations. Ensuring all globetrotters are always on the same page, particularly pilots commuting between many time zones, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is shown when the 10 o’clock pusher is briefly pressed.

Aviation influences every aspect of the watch’s design, inside and out, right down to the yellow and black striped markings on the mode display. The movement is a new, specially developed Hamilton quartz chronograph, the H-41e, automatically adjusting for daylight saving time across the globe.

The Hamilton Chrono Worldtimer comes in a 45 mm stainless steel case and is available with a choice of three different straps.
