Pre-Baselworld 2017 – The Very Cool Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 Chronograph

Hamilton is usually not a brand we cover much on Monochrome, maybe because they are positioned a bit on the lower side of the range, with various quartz offers. Yet, from time to time, the previously American brand, now under the umbrella of the Swatch Group, can surprise us, especially when look at their rich history. This year, for the upcoming 2017 edition of Baselworld, the brand will have something simply cool, a nice, vintage-inspired and affordable automatic chronograph., with iconic roots. Here is the Hamilton Intra-Matic 68.

Chronographs have been a great part of Hamilton’s history, especially during the 1960s and 1970s, coinciding with the Swiss ear of the brand, once it acquired Büren and moved to Biel, and later becoming part of SSIH (subsequently The Swatch Group). Some great watches have been made at that time, some becoming collectible iconic, such as the Fontainebleau (powered by the Chronomatic Calibre 11). Another one have been important and is today rather sought after by vintage collectors, the 1968 Hamilton Chronograph B (alongside the Hamilton Chronograph A). This watch was noticeable for its “reverse panda” dial (white counters on a black dial). This two-register watch was first available with a hand-wound movement. Later, it will be featured with the Büren / Hamilton / Heuer automatic Calibre 11, recognizable with its crown on the left side.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
