What is the story behind the watch you wear on your wrist? Maybe it is love at first sight. Maybe after months of scrutinizing, watching and waiting from a distance, until the time is ripe, they can win it in one fell swoop. Maybe a gift from a loved one to commemorate a major moment in life. No matter how different your experience is, there is no doubt that every Hamilton watch has an unusual story behind it.
Before Hamilton watches come to the master’s wrist, they have to undergo rigorous design and planning processes, including the selection or creation of suitable movements and the production of superior quality parts to give the design vitality. The finished watch is carefully assembled in the Hamilton Watchmaking Workshop and undergoes strict quality inspections and tests.
The watch design covers everything from the crown to the buckle, from the dial to the hands to the Hamilton movement.
Our watches, including the brand’s new Jazz automatic chronograph, are made in Switzerland, and quality is a key consideration when assembling a watch.
The movement is the heartbeat that drives the watch. Whether it is a quartz or mechanical movement, an automatic movement or a manual movement, the movement must be functional and practical for the watch. Many of Hamilton’s self-winding watches are equipped with specially modified movements. Each movement is fitted into the case after careful inspection by the watchmaker.
The case is the ultimate destination of the movement. Hamilton watch cases are usually made of stainless steel, the classic watchmaking material, matte sandblasted, finely polished, or coated with a striking PVD coating to add color.
The dial is often referred to as the ‘face’ of a watch. This component best reflects the unique personality of the watch, so the pursuit is just right. The hands that indicate time, including the superior blue flame hands, follow the direction of the movement.
The finishing touch of the finished watch is another important consideration. From sturdy metal bracelets to practical rubber straps, from exquisite leather straps to durable ‘NATO’ NATO military straps, there is always a strap that fits every Hamilton watch series appropriately. The new Jazz series slim watch came out in 2018, the design concept goes further, with a series of replaceable leather straps, you can choose according to your mood and style, so that you can personalize the combination with your watch.
