Hamilton first developed the Khaki Aviation X-Wind watches in close collaboration with master aerobatics aces like France’s Nicolas Ivanoff, to offer pilots a unique new functionality: the chance to calculate their correct drift angle according to wind direction, a crucial element in precise navigation at altitude.

This highly technical element resulted in a complete rethink of the pilot’s chronograph, requiring an inner rotating bezel to display crosswind and drift-angle calculations, screw-down crowns on the right flank of the watch to operate this function, and the pushers for chronograph operations moved to the left side. We adapted our advanced Hamilton H-21 chronograph movement with silicon balance spring, extended 60-hour power reserve and day-date display to power this innovative format. Due to high magnetic fields in airports, the non-magnetic properties of silicon is particularly useful in a pilot’s watch.

Powered by this high performance technology, the new Khaki Aviation X-Wind Automatic Chronograph is among Hamilton’s most complex and pragmatic aviation watches. Whether you’re venturing out into the desert for a wilderness adventure or gearing up for life in the urban fast lane, its combat-chic looks, assertive style and 45mm sizing make it a powerful choice for a life of action.

The impressive pilot watch is available in two rough-and-ready styles: A brown dial matched by a steel case coated in sandstorm beige PVD, or stainless steel case with a deep blue dial. To further underline the idea of adventure, we brought in new rough and high-tech fabric straps to complete the look.

The camouflage pattern is also extended to the dial of the Hamilton Khaki Aviation X-Wind Day Date. Paired with a stainless steel 45mm case coated with a rich brown PVD and a green textile strap it’s an exciting addition to the X-Wind range. Its precise NivachronTM balance spring completes the package.
