Hamilton

31 Baselworld 2017 novelties that really impressed me.

Why 31? That´s the number I counted when finishing my choice and putting the story together.  Please do not expect a product listing of ticking superlatives here or a ranking of the most expensive / crazy watches. What I will show you instead are watches that really impressed me - 31 in total. Either through their good and cool design, technical realization, impeccable quality and/or reasonable price. 

Baselworld 2017: Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 Auto Chrono

 

Keeping the 1960s-look as it was, this was a key request for the designers when they created the new Intra-Matic 68 Auto Chrono. 

1. The dial in particular stays true to the “reverse” panda face of the timepiece’s origins, and is circled by a white tachymeter scale. Black and white seems to be the overall theme of the watch, with the date on a dark background, a snowy white central chronograph seconds hand and black lacquered counter hands.

2. Vintage-feel pushers were placed on each side of the crown.
