New Hamilton Intra-Matic Auto Chrono "Panda"

Post by AtomicTom » Sun Sep 02, 2018 9:36 am

Did you catch this new one from Hamilton by chance everybody?

It's Hamilton's new Intra-Matic Auto Chrono "Panda" which pays tribute to
their Chronograph A from 1968. Having specifications like a 40mm stainless
steel case, 100m WR, an AR coated sapphire crystal, white panda dial with
black counters, Super-Luminova coated nickeled hands, along with black
lacquered seconds, retro Hamilton logo, and font, and black leather
strap. With the H-31 automatic (base ETA 7753) underneath it all.

Here is a look...

Now that is interesting. The previous reissue wore pretty big at 42mm. Thanks for posting Tom.

Looks great, the 42mm was too big, this one looks perfect

Very interested in this at 40mm - much better proportions

black hands would be a great choice instead of polished but that's nit-picking

should come down form its $2195 price when it hits the used market (hopefully)

Looks great, but date window could be a tad smaller. Don't hate the date though.

I recently bought a Hamilton chrono with the same H-31 movement. Impressive power reserve, but the sub-dial at 3 started resetting to 10 instead of 12 after only a few weeks, so that watch is currently out for repair (from Ashford).

Looks like I'm in the minority, I think the crown and pushers look over-sized for the case.

I see the point about the crown, but I think the pushers look fine. Overall, it’s a great looking watch.

I like it. They never offer up profile shots on these chronos. Wonder how thick.

Exactly what I needed. Always loved the vintage it’s a tribute of but it wore way too small. This is perfect and will be a strap monster. I’ll own one.

This is a gorgeous watch. Not a lot of panda dial chronos out there, and the price is right on this one.

It is a 7750 variant, so you know it is going to be fairly thick. At least 14mm is my guess.

Yep, par for the course. The acrylic Sinn 103 is the thinnest 7750-powered watch I've seen. The price to be paid for a reasonably-priced automatic chronograph.

:grin: Glad everyone is liking this one so much ! :headbang: Really seems like Hamilton hit a home
run with these. I mean everything looks great from the beautiful design to size like everybody
is saying. ..Guess we'll have to wait for more info on the thickness, but looks terrific so far.
