Hamilton's Chrono-Matic 50 Auto Chrono

Post by AtomicTom » Tue Oct 08, 2019 2:10 pm

Not sure if everyone had had time to see this new one from Hamilton.

Their Hamilton Chrono-Matic 50 Auto Chrono is actually a reissue of
the 1970's Count-down GMT, and helps celebrate the 50th Anniversary
of the Chrono-Matic also.

With the new watch having details like a brushed 48.5mm x 51.50mm
helmet style stainless steel case, 100m WR, box shaped sapphire crystal,
reverse Panda dial with Super-Luminova coated hands, and markers, a
rotating inner bezel with count-down ring, the Hamilton Calibre H-31
automatic chronograph movement, and black perforated leather strap
with nice red accents.

Have a few pictures right below...

Nice, right Eric?! :) Wasn't actually sure if we maybe had seen
these before, but it looks like they are brand new sir.

So glad that you like them ! :thumbsup:

I like that a lot! I remember when a lot of people were hoping for manufacturers to come back with re-issues and the last couple of years they have done so in a big way.
Think about it...Buy American

Hey, the thanks goes to all of YOU as always ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Just looked up the size of the original Count-Down GMT
Chrono-Matic Michael, and Andy, and they say it is 48mm,
but they don't have the full dimensions. However it looks
pretty close to the reissue here. :o

Looks like both are pretty big !!

I guess the 51.50mm lug-to-lug makes it wearable-ish for most wrists.

Thanks as always, Tom. I wouldn’t be aware of most of these releases if you didn’t bring them to our attention.

It is pretty big. Or actually really big sir. ..Not sure I could pull it off. :grin:

But just is neat to see to tell the truth. ..Thank YOU for the kind words,
along with YOUR thoughts on these Jared ! :)

That’s a good looking watch. I’m a big fan of the Hami chronos. Been thinking of the blue panda that came out recently.
