With a rich aviation history dating back to 1918, Hamilton has partnered with leading air squadrons and world-famous pilots for their Khaki Aviation collection featuring classic aviator styling and pilot-specific functions. The rugged and yet stylish Khaki X-Wind Auto Chrono is part of this collection.

Powered by a Swiss automatic chronograph movement modified into the Hamilton caliber H-21, this 44mm timepiece hosts a stainless steel case, 60-hour power reserve, large Arabic numerals, and a day-date function. What really sets this watch apart though is its drift angle calculator – one of the world’s first ever embedded in a watch – that enables pilots to calculate and record crosswinds they encounter on a planned journey. A timeless and heirloom-worthy piece for any pilot or fan of America’s aviation history.
