The most exciting aerial sport was created in 2003 and Hamilton was the first Official Timekeeper from almost the beginning. We are proud to continue in 2019 with the first stop kicking off in Abu Dhabi on February 8th and 9th. Delighting thousands of fans across the globe as it takes in some of the world’s most spectacular sights, speed and precision dominate as nothing beats the thrill of the Air Race.
Essential equipment for the 2019 season is provided by Hamilton in the shape of the latest models from our Khaki Aviation X-Wind range. These watches are packed with practical features that pilots, co-pilots and navigators will love and urban aviators will want to get their hands on.
Inside its 45 mm case, the Khaki X-Wind Day Date has a great range of instruments on offer. The blue dial offers the perfect background for readability at a glance, allowing the Super-LumiNova® hands to stand out. The day date window is at 9 o’clock and the main crown is on the left-hand side, ensuring it doesn’t interfere with the display. The crowns on the right operate the pioneering drift angle calculator – the original X-Wind from 2005 was the first analog watch to include such an instrument. Powered by the mighty H-30 automatic movement with 80-hour power reserve, it’s a watch that’s ready for non-stop flight.
With the 46 mm Khaki Aviation X-Wind GMT, more is more. With two time zones displayed at the same time on its blue dial, it’s the perfect watch to keep in touch with where you’ve come from – as well as where you’re headed. Add to that the drift angle calculator and the high-quality Swiss chronograph movement to count or measure time and you’ve got a whole cockpit on your wrist in just one watch!
