Since 1918, accuracy, innovation, a taste for adventure and a focus on precision have all contributed to making Hamilton the choice of professional aviators to accompany them in the cockpit. Hamilton is the proud partner of military squadrons, air rescue services, demonstration teams and aerobatic pilots around the world and, in 2018, we’re celebrating 100 years of timing the skies.
Hamilton is continuing to strengthen our presence in the fastest and most exciting branch of aviation: Air racing. As a trusted partner and Official Timekeeper of the Red Bull Air Race, Hamilton is an integral part of an event that focuses on speed and precision and requires split-second timing. Timekeeping could only come from a company that understands the world of aviation, and Hamilton was the natural choice.
Innovative, adventurous and accurate. This is what pilots need in a timepiece and Hamilton always delivers. The Khaki X-Wind features the first ever drift angle calculator to appear in a watch and helps pilots accurately calculate how crosswinds will affect their journey. With a technical look and automatic movement that also suits urban aviators down to the ground, it's the perfect everyday co-pilot.
As the Official Timekeeper of the Red Bull Air Race, Hamilton is proud to introduce the special edition Khaki Air Race. The orange and black Team Hamilton version reflects the colors of Nicolas Ivanoff's race plane and the blue, gray and red Official Timekeeper model honors the official colors of the Red Bull Air Race. Each model is available with a choice of leather strap or metal bracelet and is presented in a 38mm or 42mm case.
Hamilton is keeping the spirit of early aviation alive with the Khaki Pilot Auto. Based on the design of cockpit instruments, and sporting white details against a dark dial, it's a throwback to the first days of flight. But with an oversized 46mm case and a see-through case back offering an uninterrupted view of the automatic movement, there's no doubting its up-to-date credentials.
