Hamilton Chrono Worldtimer Quartz

The Hamilton Chrono Worldtimer is a stylish quartz chronograph with the ability to accurately tell the time across the world’s 24 standard time zones. Designed in collaboration with aerobatic pilot Nicolas Ivanoff, this timepiece will be on the radar screen of pilots and all other individuals with broad horizons and a love of dynamism that looks cool. It’s the perfect co-pilot for travellers planning precise itineraries, or long-distance friends wanting to fix a catch-up call without it turning into a wake-up call.

Minutes are far more important than hours to pilots. The Chrono Worldtimer reflects this reality with an easy-to-read, centered chrono counter spanning 12 minutes, to emphasize the importance of this time unit. It also has pilot-friendly, minute countdown intervals clearly marked on the bezel. Signalling the close collaboration between design and performance are the yellow markings of the first four minutes on the main time display. This pays tribute to the aerobatics inspiration, being the length of the freestyle program in competitions, with a penalty applying if it’s exceeded.
Ease of operation – even at high speeds – is a high priority for aviation watches. The 10 o’clock pusher is the switch between chronograph functionality and the worldtimer facility. Once in worldtimer mode, easy bi-directional adjustment enables the smart complication to calculate the current time in the zone requested from a choice of 24 locations. Ensuring all globetrotters are always on the same page, particularly pilots commuting between many time zones, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is shown when the 10 o’clock pusher is briefly pressed. 
Aviation influences every aspect of the watch’s design, inside and out, right down to the yellow and black striped markings on the mode display. The movement is a new, specially developed Hamilton quartz chronograph, the H-41e, with global daylight saving fluctuations for several generations to come on board.
