In very exciting news, Hamilton is launching a new Jazzmaster Skeleton collection. The release includes three new 40mm models as well as three 36mm models in never before seen feminine colourways. Showing off their intricate H-10-S calibre movements, each of the new watches features an intricately cut dial that reveals the watch’s inner mechanics as it beats in real-time. Read on for more about these new Hamilton Jazzmaster Skeleton collection launches.
The New Hamilton Jazzmaster Skeleton Collection Launches
Case and Dial
Taking centre stage is the collection’s namesake skeletonised dial. Unlike many other skeletal dial designs on the market, the skeletonised dials on the Hamiltons are far from lazy. In fact, it’s obvious by looking at them that their design is incredibly well thought out. Whereas other watches simply feature a round skeletonised window, Hamilton cuts the dial in a way that actively follows the bone structure of the watch. Each aperture both exposes and emphasises each component of the movement, highlighting its beautiful complexity.
As for colourways, the 40mm models come with either a deep blue (H42535541 or H42535141) or brushed white dial (H42535810). For the smaller models, there is a choice of baby pink (H32265870) and purple (H32265801 or H32265101). Particularly with these latter colourways, it’s refreshing to see Hamilton branch out into unfamiliar territory, and successfully too!
Each model features a simplistic three-hand design adorned with silver-tone dagger indices and slim hands. The exception is the 40mm white dial model (H42535810), which instead features rose gold indices and hands. For added practicality, the hour and minute hands are luminescent meaning the time is readable even in the dark.
But each piece doesn’t just look pretty. The new Hamiltons boast 50 metres of water resistance, as well as an anti-reflective sapphire crystal to protect each dial.
Movement and Finishing Touches
Beating at the heart of each of the new models is the brand’s exclusive automatic H-10-S calibre. Like the standard H-10 calibre, it’s equipped with a generous 80-hour power reserve. However, as an added detail, the skeletonised H-10-S features Cotes de Genève decoration.
This calibre also has a Nivachron balance spring. For those unsure of what this is, a Nivachron balance spring is a component of the movement that optimises its resistance to magnetic interference. Additionally, it also protects the watch against the effects of temperature variations of everyday wear. By minimising the impact of these, Nivachron helps to keep your watch functioning as precisely and as accurately as possible.
So you can appreciate the aesthetic of the movement fully, the watch also has an exhibition case back. In a similar attentively-cut style to the watch’s dial, the back features a Hamilton engraving and a portion cut away in the shape of its spiky ‘H’ logo.
Finally, each model is completed with a choice of a stainless steel bracelet or a smart leather strap. For example, the blue dial is available with a classic five-link bracelet (H42535141) or a sophisticated brown leather strap (H42535541). Whereas the brushed white 40mm model (H42535810) only has the option of a dark green leather strap. For the smaller models with the purple dial, you have the choice of the five-link bracelet (H32265101) or a beautiful baby pink leather strap (H32265801). Similarly to the white 40mm, the baby pink dial (H32265870) comes with a purple leather strap only.
