Hamilton have launched two new striking designs inspired by the brand’s most famous fan. Elvis Presley was known to wear and enjoy timepieces from Hamilton’s Ventura collection, so this new model is named in tribute to the star. Fans of the brand will recognise the unusual triangular shape as being an iconic feature of the Ventura collection, a style that is loved by many collectors. These Hamilton Ventura Elvis80 Skeleton watches bring new elements to the classic design, ensuring it remains practical and stylish for the modern day.
The New Watches
The Ventura Collection is best known for its use of electricity. The movements within the watches traditionally featured a battery powered electromagnet that aided in running the watch. However, the two newest members of the collection take a step into horological tradition and are powered by an automatic movement. Both models feature a precise and reliable H-10-S mechanism and have an 80-hour power reserve. This generous power reserve means that the watches are dependable and will continue to be so for years to come.
Both of the new models feature a black cut out dial with Côtes de Geneve detailing. The precise cut out design means that the movement behind the dial can be seen, allowing the wearer to observe and enjoy the automatic movement that powers these eye-catching timepieces. The finely engineered movement mechanics become part of the design of the watch, creating a deeper appreciation for the expert craftsmanship that is required to build a watch of this quality. The dials of both of the models feature a stylized zig zagging electricity inspired design to pay homage to the movements of the early Ventura models.
Two New Models
The new Hamilton Ventura Elvis80 Skeleton watches come in two striking designs.
The first features a black PVD case that measures 42.5mm by 44.6mm. The black case and dial draw attention to the red zig zag design at the centre of the dial. This red electric pulse feature is a tribute to the classic electricity powered Ventura models that were famously favoured by Elvis Presley. This model is finished with a sleek and comfortable black rubber strap.
The second new model features a bright, eye-catching PVD plated rose gold case. This watch also measures 42.5mm by 44.6mm. The polished finish of this case ensures that the unusual triangular Ventura design will turn heads and perfectly complete any outfit. The electric pulse design across the centre of the dial is rose gold to complement the colour of the case. A black rubber strap completes this model, ensuring it is practical and comfortable enough for everyday wear.
