Now, a bit on the drift-angle calculator. It is operated by two crowns and consists of rotating bezels (upper and lower), around the dialís perimeter. The crown at 4 oíclock rotates the upper bezel (to the desired wind direction) to determine the correct bearing, along with other variables (speed, magnetic bearing and crosswind component) taken under consideration. The 2 oíclock crown rotates the lower bezel to the correct bearing.
Though Hamilton comes under the Swiss behemoth Swatch, but its American spirit and heritage is more prominent in its existence. The Hamilton Jazzmaster Maestro Chronograph H77616133 Mens Watch is a part of the brandís collection of pilot's watches and has a particularly industrial look to it. Itís the multi-level dial thatís responsible; the two-tone brushed metal detailing also playing its part. The chronograph registers feature stylized metal overlays, with intricate detailing around the day and date windows. Apart from legibility, it gives the watch a distinctive style, which suits well its very busy dial with the Drift Angle Calculator scale on it. Itís extremely detailed, so that you can measure time intervals with a precision of the first degree.
The Hamilton Intra-Matic Automatic chucks out the run-of-the-mill chronograph totalizing dial and replaces it with an attractive indicator, styled after aircraft gauges. They are neat, open-worked and brushed with a complex-looking decorative plate adding contrast to the matte black background. The sub-dials, thus receive very much of a three-dimensional appearance. This 3D-effect is further emphasized with one more machine-brushed plate that has the appearance of sitting slightly lower on the matte black dial. To tell in a short and simple way, everything is nicely executed and it gives the watch its extra mojo. That helps the timekeeper stand out as a classic from the rest of the pilotsí chronographs.
Instead of an ETA Valjoux 7750 mechanism, the Hamilton Automatic Intra-Matic houses a Caliber H-21 automatic chronograph movement. This redecorated version of the industry work-horse movement is found in more expensive watches and therefore, qualifies as a rarity in this case. Itís robust; itís reliable and is an incredibly energy-efficient movement thatís easy to service and repair and goes for 60 hours with a full power-reserve. That saves a lot of re-setting efforts when you got other important agendas to attend.
