Hamilton black watches: timepieces with presence
More than any other shade, black has the ability to create different effects depending on the setting. So, Hamilton black watches for men and women are as varied as the people who wear them. They range from confidently unconventional in the Ventura
to coolly sophisticated in the Jazzmaster collection and boldly adventurous in our Khaki Navy range.
Military styling with black watches
The all-black Khaki Field Mechanical
is a faithful recreation of military timepieces we produced in the 1960s – plus a few modern twists. It gives a subtle nod to military styling with its NATO strap, and is made for nighttime activities, since the triangular indexes in glowing Super-LumiNova® stand out intensely against the dark case. Equipped with an exclusive H-50 hand-winding movement, it is quite simply the perfect black watch for adventurers. While every watch in the Khaki Field range features the rugged resilience of Hamilton’s military heritage, some do so with stealth style, such as the Khaki Field King. Thanks to its black PVD-coated case, black dial and black leather strap, this automatic timepiece projects a restrained power day or night.
From military to rock ‘n’ roll
The Ventura Quartz
takes black in a completely different direction. Its futuristic look is a perfect homage to mid-century modern design – perfect for nighttime adventures in the city rather than the wilderness. Launched in 1957, the original Ventura made watchmaking history as the world's first battery-powered watch and its daring and distinctive design quickly became a collector's item. The all-black version of the Ventura stays true to its heritage, maintaining the pioneering shield shape that made it instantly recognizable.
Worn by Elvis Presley, the Ventura embodied confidence and creativity, an American spirit the pop culture pioneer took to heart – and to wrist. In tribute to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, the Ventura Elvis80 Auto is the ultimate rule breaker – from its unique design to its innovative H-10 movement and 80-hour power reserve.
Black watches: As seen on the big screen
All Hamilton’s black timepieces have a powerful visual presence – and they have appeared more than once in movies. Most recently, the Ventura Quartz black watch for women featured in “Men in Black III,” on the wrist of Agent O, played by Emma Thompson. In “The Avengers,” Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr, sports a Khaki Field Titanium Auto. Made from an advanced, lightweight material, this timepiece balances form and function with a simple, clear dial, dark rubber strap and a black case that adds a dynamic tactical look. Other box office hits that have featured our dark watches include “Ocean’s Eight” and “Tenet.”
With Hamilton, the look of an everyday watch is never dialed down. The Jazzmaster Chrono Quartz is a great example thanks to a dark finish contrasted with a sleek stainless steel bracelet. Built with uncompromising Swiss precision, it’s a high-quality timepiece that can be worn anywhere, anytime.
