Hamilton Updates Its Intra-Matic Chrono With A New Hand-Wound Movement

Mar 8, 2021

Category: Style

The Hamilton Intra-Matic Chronograph, with its mid-century looks and automatic movement, was already one of the most-tempting watches on the market around the $2,000 mark. But now that the Hamilton Intra-Matic Chronograph H has been released with a brand new manual-wind movement that’s exclusive to the watch, the debate is pretty much over.

Ticking away inside the Hamilton Intra-Matic Chronograph H is the new H-51 caliber, which was developed specifically for the watch by fellow Swatch Group member ETA. The movement boasts an extended 60-hour power reserve, an especially handy feature for a hand-wound watch that allows you to go a day or two without winding if needed. As for the rest of the watch, it maintains the same great looks as the Intra-Matic you know and love with some subtle tweaks. The sapphire crystal has been updated to a vintage-style dome, the lume is now done in Super-LumiNova old radium for a patinaed look, and the tachymeter has been shrunken and color-coded to match the dial. Two color variants, a panda and a reverse panda, are each available on either a black leather strap for $2,045 or on a stainless steel mesh bracelet for $2,095.

Purchase: $2,045+
