The New 2011 Novelties from Hamilton  3 Comments


Just days before the Basel 2011, Hamilton has kindly cleared my publishing of the new models to be launched at the international exhibition. It was a great honour for us here in Singapore and especially for me to be able to photograph and release the new models evens before it was officially launched. There was at least a dozen models this year - all of which fall into nostalgic themes. These mechanical timepieces were taken out of the ETA stable of movements belonging to the Swatch Group but a few had important and significant improvements made. The key thing to note that for Hamilton watches, the market intended is not for those who demanded high horology but for those who want history, reliability and good functional design - with the important ingredient of quality finish balanced with honest and fair pricing. The overall quality of these watches have come a long way from a few decades ago of early Hamilton and now these well designed pieces would not be out of place in serious collector's box of watches. The highlight pieces for me are the chronographs featured here. But what was exciting to all of us at the lunch was that we were informed that the list prices of most of these new models are at about S$2800 and they are due to arrive in the third quarter of 2011.  More information on these models to follow.
