Since its establishment in 1892, Hamilton has been a firm innovator of movements in its long brand history and a leading developer of mechanical movements in the golden age of the American watchmaking industry. In addition to continuously optimizing the accuracy of the Railroad watch movements, Hamilton also introduced the first motor core (the iconic Ventura). Continuing this tradition of innovation, Hamilton released three new movements this year, including two mechanical movements and a quartz movement.
H-10-S automatic movement
Depending on the winding state of the mainspring (the metal coil that stores and transmits energy for the movement), the power reserve is the time during which the watch can operate. The power reserve of the past 38-48 hours has been the limit, which is enough to meet the needs of most people. Recently, the focus of research and development in the industry is to improve the power reserve of special models. If it is ensured that it is removed at 5 pm on Friday and worn at 7 am on Monday, the watch can still function normally, then it must have at least 62 hours of power reserve.
Hamilton has addressed this need-the Railroad Skeleton watch released this year is equipped with a new H-10-S automatic movement and is equipped with a power reserve of up to 80 hours. The wearer can admire the exquisite Geneva finishing on the movement, which is also the intention of choosing the hollow watch as the first show of H-10-S.

In Hamilton’s view, controlling the escapement speed control mechanism can not only double the dynamic storage capacity, but also optimize the accuracy and reliability of the watch. The 80-hour power reserve provides many conveniences, so it is foreseeable that this movement will be carried on more models in the future.
Hamilton Khaki Navy Pioneer Small Second
H-32 automatic movement
The H-32 on the Khaki Navy Pioneer Small Second is the second movement released by Hamilton this year. This watch is inspired by the brand’s 1940s marine astronomical clock design, which is simple, clear and elegant. The H-32 automatic movement is equipped with a skeleton rotor and is carefully decorated with a snail pattern. H-32 has the same specifications as H-10-S, and can provide a power reserve of 38 hours.
Hamilton Kahki Chrono Worldtimer
H-41 quartz movement
Hamilton has developed a world time movement that perfectly meets the needs of modern travelers and a Kahki Chrono Worldtimer watch equipped with this movement. The watch is complex in function but easy to operate. With the convenient pusher at 10 o’clock, you can easily switch between chronograph and world time functions.
For pilots, the concept of ‘minutes’ is far more significant than the concept of ‘hours’. To underscore the importance of this unit of time, the new Kahki Chrono Worldtimer watch features an easy-to-read ’12-minute’ central chronograph.

This watch was designed and designed by Hamilton and the famous aerobatic pilot Nicolas Ivanoff. It has a 24-time zone display and automatic adjustment of daylight saving time, and is based on the coordinated universal time (UTC). The actual needs of the pilot.
With the latest developments in movements and watches, Hamilton has once again confirmed its reputation as an innovator.
