Hamilton Jazzmaster Thinline Gold

Hamilton unveils Jazzmaster Thinline Gold, an elegant new version on the Jazzmaster theme strikes a new chord with the warm glow of the quintessential precious metal.

The Jazzmaster Thinline Gold gives a brilliantly timeless, reinforced identity to the iconic Jazzmaster line. It also represents a spot-on response to the market interest in a slimmer, sleeker automatic gold watch. This is a radiant new gold iteration of a line reputed for its classic, yet contemporary timepieces with clean, streamlined looks. It also offers a glowing example of how Jazzmaster models have earned their reputation for ensuring a seamless transition from the office to evening events.
Hamilton and gold have a history. The brand’s affinities with the metal known to the ancient Romans as Aurum – or shining dawn – date back nearly a century to 1923 when two models were produced. The first was a Cushion model, of which just four were made, in 18kt yellow gold, 14kt white gold and 14kt green gold. Subsequent Hamilton watches from this “golden” era include the famous 18kt “Piping Rock” in 1928.

The Jazzmaster collection fully lives up to its evocative name. It masters the art of offering infinite variations on its chosen themes. Its light and airy “improvisations” are backed by rock-solid expertise and technical prowess. The Hamilton Jazzmaster Thinline Gold, with its 18kt pink gold 40 mm case water-resistant to 3 bar, is the latest interpretation of a long line of themes combining innovation and modernity.

This watch artfully combines a timeless, silver-toned dial, lightly domed around the edge, with raised, applied indexes and razor-edge dauphine-shaped hands. The highly legible 6 o’clock date display is an unusual and much-appreciated feature on ultra-thin mechanical watches. Setting the perfect signature touch to this timepiece embodying classic yet contemporary elegance, the brand’s thoroughly current new H symbol adorns both dial and crown. And for those who like to look at time from both sides, the mechanical automatic movement can be admired in action through the exhibition case-back.

The quintessential refinement of this exceptional piece culminates in a subtly retro fine-grain hand-sewn black calf leather strap. The latter is secured to the case by the collection’s distinctively designed lugs.  Issued in an exclusive limited edition of 1892 in tribute to the Hamilton founding date, the Jazzmaster Thinline Gold is the epitome of restrained elegance.
