Hamilton have just released a new limited edition model of extremely popular watch in their portfolio: Khaki Aviation X-Wind. This limited edition model was released as a celebration of 100th anniversary of Hamilton’s aviation know-how.

I’m pretty sure more of us already know the regular version of Hamilton X-Wind. It’s a marvelous piece of aviation technology which allows to manually calculate cross-wind and drift angle for the pilots. The limited edition is no different here but it comes with a couple of subtle changes, which only add to the charm of the watch. The first noticeable change is addition of vintage lume on both hands and indices. I’m sure not everyone is fan of this long lasting vintage fad but I really think it doesn’t look out of place in this example.

The other change that I really dig is the new shape of screw-down crowns. It’s not a huge change by any means, rather a very subtle one and not that noticeable at the first glance. The crowns have a more cone-like shape, which gives the whole watch a more refined and mature look.

The last but not least, the limited edition X-Wind by Hamilton is equipped with the same automatic chronograph H-21 movement that was used in the original X-Wind. However, there are some changes there as well. This is the first Hamilton chronograph watch which utilizes a silicon hairspring, and on top of that each watch is COSC certified as a chronometer.

The latest limited edition X-Wind H77796535 is a really nice touch to the portfolio of Hamilton’s aviation family. I really love the new subtle color scheme, which is  well balanced between vintage look and a modern robust piece of equipment. The addition of new crowns and COSC certified movement is huge winner as well. It’s worth noting that this model is limited to 1918 pieces and it’s priced at 2 250 Euro or 2 595 USD. You will find more details on the official website.
