The original re launch of this model came as a chronograph and the blue was a limited edition of 1000 pieces. For 2014 Hamilton have reduced the watch to a more manageable 42 mm from the 45 mm of the Chrono and have moved the date from 6 o’clock to 3 o’clock. Also a day display now resides next to the date box. A red full size sweeping hand completes the look.
The sunburst blue face really comes to prominence on this very clean looking watch and the overall effect is very striking. To our eyes this is a big winner for Hamilton. The Chrono is good but a much more affordable 3 Hander in the 42 mm case will be an irresistible proposition for most, myself included probably.
