Hamilton Basel 2013 – New Addition For AZFT

The latest addition to the AZFT line up that was brought in at Basel World 2013 is Hamilton.  We’ve been watching the brand for years, and with some excellent new releases and new Hamilton exclusive movements, we couldn’t pass it up.  Here’s some of the new product we have to look forward to…

Hamilton Spirit of Libetry Chronograph

The new Hamilton Jazzmaster Spirit of Liberty Chronographs feature the fairly new H-21 Caliber, made by ETA exclusive for Hamilton.  The H-21 has an advantage compared to most 7750’s, which would be a 60 hour power reserve.  Aside from the movement, the new variations of Spirit of Liberty have  a worn vintage looking strap stamped with the quote “Without Liberty Life is a Mystery”.

Tutima Basel 2013

With Tutima’s return to Glashutte, came a full line of new products.  As a matter of fact, the entire brand has completely changed, but its line up still kept to its traditional design elements.  With totally new movements and designs, Tutima had some of the most exciting introductions at Basel World 2013.

The closest in look to the previous line up (the Grand Classic) is the Tutima Grand Flieger Classic.  In the standard 3 hand auto variation, Tutima uses their new caliber 330. You will notice that all of the new Tutima movements are coated in an antique gray, giving a unique vintage look.  The case remained 43mm as in the Grand Classic, but some great modifications have been made internally.

Instead of using 3 movements to have 4 timezones, Glycine has introduced a new heavily modified movement that is capable of having centralized time with a big date, and  2 subdials for additional timezones.  The new movement is ETA based, with a unique display of time for world travelers. Not only is this new movement convient, but also less expensive compared to the earlier series of Airman 7’s (estimated in the $3-4,000 range).  The design of the dial is completely new as well with 3 colors (black, blue and green) all on leather straps.

Citizen SATELLITE WAVE – Air – Basel 2013

Citizen Eco-Drive Satellite Wave Air CC1054-56E

Citizen Eco-Drive Satellite Wave Air CC1054-56E

The long awaited rebirth of the Citizen Eco-Drive SATELLITE WAVE has finally become a reality.  About 2 years ago, Citizen debuted their original Satellite Wave Limited Edition of 990 pieces, and was near impossible to find.  I know the allotment that came to AZ Fine Time was sold out, at least 2 months before the watches even came in.  It was ground breaking technology then, and has even been improved upon today.
