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…
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”.
A new metallic blue dial in the Jazzmaster Auto Chrono will be released later this year. These models will also feature the H-21 movement, have a 42mm case, and available on bracelet or strap.
A newly designed Hamilton Khaki Aviation is on the horizon with a 42mm case. It will have an ETA 2824-2 movement and will be very reasonably priced.
The highlight of the Jazzmaster series was the new 42mm Regulator. These models will feature the new H-12 exclusive regulator movement and will come in inder $1,500, which is very impressive for a regulator.
The Pilot Pioneer’s in an Automatic Chronograph look fantastic. The new variation will feature the H-31 caliber which has chronograph minutes and seconds display, a quick set date, and has a 60 hour power reserve. For less than $2,000, it is a tremendous value.
A handful of new styles of the QNE popped up this year. The watches have a sporty and vintage look to them and utilize an ETA 2895-2.
The new Khaki Navy Sub Auto’s and Auto Chrono’s look really impressive. The 300m divers are in stainless steel, 43mm case are available in steel bracelet or rubber strap.
One of the most intriguing and unique pieces from Hamilton is their new Jazzmaster Face2Face. This wild design has an inner rotating case that displays a Chronograph using an ETA 2094 on one side, and when flipped, a standard automatic dial using an ETA 2671. The opposite movement is displayed through sapphire crystal on each side.
There’s these and a lot more coming to AZFT in the near future. Looking forward to their arrival!
