Baselworld 2012: Following 2011′s attractively styled Hamilton Pan Europ watch, Hamilton has released another exciting vintage inspired watch at Baselworld 2012. The Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer is a homage to the marine chronometers that Hamilton made for the US Navy in the 1940s (see picture below), and can be worn on a strap or displayed in a marine chronometer-style box and used as a table clock (and conversation piece!). Be sure to watch the video below for a walk through of the watch. The retail price will be approximately $3,000, certainly an attractive option to other higher end marine chronometer-inspired pieces out there (e.g. Glashütte Original’s Senator Chronometer Marine Chronometer set or Montblanc’s 1858 Régulateur Nautique set).
