It was a Hamilton watch used on the first US postal service flight between Washington and New York, so aviation is nothing new to the brand whose prestigious aviation heritage dates back to 1919 and has included the rank of official supplier to the US Armed Forces since 1914. Geared toward the skyward bound, working with leading air squadrons and world famous pilots, Hamilton’s Khaki Aviation line is renowned for providing classic aviator styling and functions specific to pilots’ needs. Bursting with character rooted in aviation and the instruments that guide it, immeasurably technical and painstakingly precise, the big, aggressive Khaki X-Wind Auto Chrono is no exception to this rule.

Racy black PVD decor underscores the line’s close ties with aviation, emphasizing its reputation for precision and technicity. A black leather strap is the finishing touch to the dark good looks of the new generation Khaki X-Wind Auto Chrono which sports a robust 45 mm diameter with five characteristically chunky side elements in the form of an X and contrasting silver detail.

A place in another league

It goes without saying that the stainless steel with black PVD coating case of the latest iteration of the Khaki X-Wind Auto Chrono naturally houses what really sets the X-Wind apart: one of the world’s first drift angle calculator in a watch. This enables pilots to accurately calculate and record the crosswinds they will encounter on their planned journey.

Water-resistant to 10 bars (100 meters), the Khaki X-Wind Auto Chrono is powered by a Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement that has been modified into the Hamilton caliber H-21 – upping the power reserve to an appropriately muscular 60 hours.

Each of the three counters feature stylized metal overlays complemented by two-tone brushed metal detailing around the day and date aperture at 9 o’clock, resulting in a singularly industrial look with a fascinating 3D effect.
