For their 120th anniversary, Hamilton launched a very special Khaki Navy Pioneer in a marine chronometer box. Knowing that this watch is too beautiful to be locked in a wooden cube, the watch company created a unique system that uses the watch head to function either in the box or on the wrist. These box sets are said to be sold out by Hamilton ADs, and here in front of you is the chance to add one to your collection. Limited edition, numbered fairly low out of 1,892 – and unworn.
