High Flying Heritage

This Limited-Edition Pilot Watch from Hamilton and Schott NYC Has Military Heritage and Style

December 9, 2019 Sponsored By

When you think about American heritage, two brands at the top of your mind will invariably be Hamilton and Schott NYC. The heritage watchmaker and the iconic leather jacket company both supplied gear to the US Armed Forces during WWII, becoming symbols of military-style. Now, these two brands have come together to create this limited edition Khaki Pilot watch. The 46mm watch has some impressive specs like the H-30 automatic day-date movement with 80 hours of power reserve. But beyond the reliable movement, Hamilton and Schott NYC made sure the watch had the style to back it up. The time is displayed on a khaki green dial with contrasting light green Super-LumiNova hands and numerals, and the strap is crafted from Schott’s own top-grain, full-aniline, lightweight steer hide leather. The Earth Brown straps are made from the same type of leather used for the flight jackets during the war and to this day. This is your chance to snap up a unique piece of aviation heritage. But act fast, it’s limited to 1,892 pieces.
