This really interesting watch was inspired from the design perspective of the 1930s Flintridge. This one was originally created as a sports timepiece but honestly you can wear it whenever you want as it’s a very classy timepiece.
Available for both genders, this lovely design will make a big impression. Well, I’m impressed…
The catalogue price is 1075 Euro and it’s certainly someting really intersting. The only problem is the availability since it is a new model and not all retailers will have it in their stores…. But more than that – Both version are limited to 999 pieces.
The gents watch is a stainless steel automatic watch with Day at 12 o’clock and Date at 6.
The cover of this one hosts a Clous de Paris pattern, an embossed logo and is interrupted only by two peepholes for the day and date.
That’s not all…A further hidden treasure of this piece is the H-40 movement (based on an ETA Powermatic) with 80 hours of power reserve and which is visible through the case back.
The Lady version is also a steel and automatic watch but with no Day & Date feature because on this one Hamilton decided to use the caliber ETA2681. I think it’s also because they wanted to give to this version a completely different style… Something more feminine.
And yes…Shining through the opening of the Flintridge Lady is a cluster of seven diamonds, a tempting invitation to raise the protective cover emitting sunrays from a round opening just above the 6 o’clock position.
With no doubt this one has broader appeal than the other collections from Hamilton (except the Ventura of course). The Flintridge is for sure a conversation piece because of its design… now we can just imagine how fun it would be to customize it.
