Earlier this year WatchPro unveiled its Watches of the Year 2012 – the 10 winning timepieces and 90 highly commended watches that we felt boasted commercial appeal, innovation and had wowed consumers and retailers alike over the past 12 months.
Highly commended in the Limited Edition Watch of the Year category was the Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Limited Edition.
As part of Hamilton 120th year celebrations the brand launched its Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Limited Edition, said to reflect its long maritime history.
With a retro-inspired design that references marine chronometers from the 1940s, WatchPro fell for this beauty the moment we spotted it and anticipate its launch later this year.
It nattily doubles as a table clock and is limited to 1,892 pieces as a play on Hamilton’s founding year. It has a 46.5mm stainless steel case with a velvet-like finish to the dial and a hand-wound mechanical movement.
We adore its details too: the blued hands add a touch of classicism, while the slimline lugs complete the look.
