  • Summary

Hamilton is taking its American Classic collection on an exciting voyage with the brand new Seaview family of timepieces. The first two landmarks in this line of nautical themed watches are the Seaview AutoChrono and the Seaview GMT. The new model Seaview Automatic 46 mm will be launched in 2009. These sophisticated watches get themselves on the map by means of intricate design detail and precision functionality. With a choice of materials, from edgy stainless steel to elegant pink gold plating, and colours, there is a watch to suit every situation, on land and at sea.

Seaview AutoChrono

The Seaview AutoChrono gives classic sophistication an appealing kick. This turns it into a hero of the present, with its roots in the past, mixing heritage with modernity. Sophistication clearly expresses itself through dials featuring a Côtes de Genève finish, simultaneously reminding of the watch’s nautical theme with their own small waves. The sporty character is strikingly evident in the turning bezel design with its embossed digits and markings resembling the most famous navigational instrument, the compass. Around the bezel, 15-minute intervals, like those used for decompression calculation, are clearly marked. There are three models in the family, each with its own distinctive identity. A pink gold colored version is the flagship of the trio with its intrinsic elegance contrasted with a trendy black rubber strap. This textured black rubber strap can also be teamed with a silvercolored case and black dial, or, to highlight a more classical direction, replaced by a stainless-steel bracelet.

Seaview GMT

The Seaview GMT applies alternative functionality to this elegantly sporty timepiece with its facility to accommodate a second time zone. And since over 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by ocean, thiscapability is particularly useful to nautically-minded wearers. The GMT function looks like the historical ships’ telegraphs known as chadburns, where the ship’s direction and speed were revealed through a metal barrell surround. The predominantly black dials of the three GMT models present a circle of small windows through which the movement ETA 2893-2 makes regular appearances. A finely tapered hand extends beyond this ring of cutouts to point to a square display revealing the hour of the selected second time zone on the 24-hour clock. The Seaview GMT is available nn exactly the same color combinations as the trio of Seaview AutoChrono models. The Côtes de Genève ondulations enhance silver-colored windows forming two arcs centered on 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, one integrating the date window, returning the imagination to navigation with its strong resemblance to historical inclinometers, used to measure angles of elevation.

Seaview Automatic

The elegant simplicity of the brand new Seaview automatic 46 mm attracts the eye. The model impresses 2 - Seaview www.hamiltonwatch.com due to its size and the ingenious blend of materials and hues. The main new feature is the steel PVD gunmetal watchcase, which stresses the masculine feel of the watch. The watchcase with polished details combined with the black dial make the white digits and hands really stand out. Like all Seaview models, the turning outer dial is also gunmetal coloured, as well as the digits and the 15-minute decompression feature, which enhance the “sober” look of the watch. The anthracite leather strap also adds a final touch of sophistication. Simplicity is also a watchword on the model with a stainless steel watchcase with a brown leather, metal or finely-worked rubber strap. The elegant simplicity of the model is also conveyed by a black and white face letting the harpoon shaped hour hand stand out as it points to the digits, which are also black and white. The date window, positioned at 3 o’clock, is equally discreet.
