  • Wind or Grind: retro Hamilton Chronograph...

    This is the newly-announced Intra-Matic from Hamilton.
    The dial appears to be like what they used on the original Calibre 11 auto chronos from the late 1960s (which had the crown at 9:00).
    Nicely done, IMO.
    40mm, Valjoux movement, cost around $2200

    Winds, in my opinion. Classic looking dial, crown and pushers.

        Close to a perfect remake of a classic watch. Wind!

          The copy at the end looks like where the overused term "from beach to the boardroom" originated from

            Oh man...here is a sweet version of the original Chrono-matic. I cannot recall seeing this one before:

              I LOVE old ads from back in the day. It's when they had real people make them! Notice the use of "He-man" in this old Boy Scout Knife ad.....
              As to the watch, it's pretty cool.

                That Pan-Europ Chronomatic is one of my all-time favorite watches. I wish at some point opportunity and money coincided so that I might have had one.

                  Both of these new Seikos are great. The first one is pure class (if it isn't silly big) and the Chronomatic is nice enough it can write its own rules.
