The Hamilton Khaki Aviation X-Wind Chrono watch. An incredibly handsome Aviation automatic chronograph watch that makes the perfect everyday co-pilot. Glorious in its technical look and automatic movement, loved by pilots and grounded urbanites alike.
Starting in 1892, Hamilton has been a significant American watch company since the beginning, with many historical, ground-breaking timepieces. Their military roots come from the most worn military watch ever, beginning in WWII, the Khaki Field. In addition, their aviation experience began in the 1920s and ’30s.
The Khaki X-Wind is their latest innovation. Featuring the first ever drift angle calculator to appear in a watch. It helps pilots accurately calculate how crosswinds will affect their journey. Innovative, rugged and accurate, the X-Wind is exactly what pilots need in a timepiece. Hamilton always delivers, and has, ever since they became the official timepiece to the American Armed Forces in the early 1900s, including aviation operations.
You get an impressive 44mm stainless steel case and an open exhibition case back, both with sapphire crystals. Also, it features a screw down crown. Includes 10 bar water resistance (100m). And obviously, there’s a very attractive black dial and genuine brown leather strap with a pin buckle.
Hamilton watches are celebrities and have been in over 500 movies since the 1930s. The Khaki Aviation X-wind was worn by Liam Hemsworth in Independence Day: Resurgence in 2016.
The H-21 is a powerful automatic chronograph movement. It features an extended 60-hour power reserve, making it perfect for the demands of the sportiest of models.
