HAMILTON X AIR-GLACIERS

Swiss precision on the wrist and in the air: special edition Hamilton Khaki Aviation Pilot Air-Glaciers made in partnership with rescuers.

Hamilton has a long aviation heritage dating back to 1918 when the pioneering pilots of the era put their trust in the precision of its watches and navigation instruments.

In 2022, Hamilton announced its partnership with Air-Glaciers, a rescue team with a powerful dedication to honoring their duties in the mountains.

Founded in 1965, Air-Glaciers is a pioneer in mountain rescue and has become one of the most advanced helicopter rescue organizations in the world. Carrying out more than 3,000 missions per year in the Swiss Alps, performance and precision from their equipment is paramount in the success of every mission.

Air-Glaciers operates 6 bases throughout the Swiss Alps (Sion, Collombey, Leysin, Gampel, Lauterbrunnen and Gstaad) from which its crews take off to carry out rescue missions as well as passenger flights, spray, taxi and air freight transport flights.
