Last year, the commemorative models were unveiled one after another. Many brands celebrated the 50th anniversary of their self-winding chronograph movement. There is a Caliber 11 movement in the movement. This movement is HAMILTON Hamilton, Breitling Breitling and HEUER (Thai Georgia’s predecessor) jointly developed the first self-winding chronograph movement, which was a major breakthrough in the watchmaking industry at that time. Hamilton launched the Chrono-Matic 50 commemorative edition replica watch last year.
The date of the commemorative replica watch launched last year has been listed one after another, including this HAMILTON replica Chrono-Matic E Chrono-Matic 50 replica watch in the early 1970s. Various details of this replica watch reproduce the classic original appearance. For Hamilton, the development of Caliber 11 can be said to be an important achievement of the brand after the legendary Ventura replica watch in 1957.
Hamilton’s new work reproduces the special case and lugs of the original 1972 with a stainless steel case, but it has a slightly increased size and is equipped with a box-shaped sapphire crystal glass. It is avant-garde and stiff, and the original anti-color panda is engraved. Dial design, sub-dial, date layout is the same as the original version, but the outer ring is changed to speed and chronograph ring, which fits the needs of sports timing.
On the dial, the date display at 6 o’clock and the sub-dial layout at 3 and 9 o’clock are exactly the same as the original. The original red, black and white design is also restored to the details of the new buttons and dials. The difference is the time between the two places. The black and white countdown time ring and speed measuring outer ring were changed to the world time zone and time ring, highlighting the charm of racing.
Caliber 11 can’t be used naturally in the movement. After all, the performance can’t keep up. Fortunately, Hamilton used this movement as the basis, combined with the Chrono-Matic E of the time display and chronograph functions of the two places, to develop a new movement H- 31 self-winding movements, this movement is equipped with a date replica watch.
