Hamilton watches promote BaselWorld collection

First published: 09-03-2010

Hamilton, a watch brand known for its strong aeronautical heritage, has unveiled a large number of novelties and timepieces for 2010 as part of its run-up to a leading Swiss watch fair.

BaselWorld, which kicks off later this month and runs between March 18th and 25th, will fully demonstrate Hamilton watches that aim to combine high technology with Swiss precision, according to the Moodie Report.

The Hamilton Khaki X-Landing caught the eye of the publication the most and is a collection of two limited-edition watches which have been inspired by the first all-metal plane created in the 1920s.

It explained: "The models, which feature 24 time zones, are said to provide pilots with a sophisticated GMT chronograph, with design touches reflecting the materials of the early metal planes."

Additionally, 24 different time zones are printed on the bezel's surface, with one model giving place names and the other using terms from the military.

Hamilton was founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania way back in 1892.
