The latest addition to the Hamilton’s Jazzmaster family of watches is a stunning Jazzmaster Viewmatic Skeleton Watch. The new model comprises Gents and Ladies timepieces.
Both models of the new Jazzmaster Viewmatic SkeletonWatch are powered with new H-20-S skeleton movements.
This automatic caliber perfectly combines traditional skeletonizing techniques with modern, high-end technology, such as laser engraving. The watchmaking techniques employed to create this movement are visible on both watch sides. There are angles and curves that join forces to create a dynamic look, while anthracite-colored cut-outs occupy the most of the dial surface and even provide stolen glimpses of the wrist below.
The impeccable mechanism boasts an open-worked rotor with brushed finish and the brand’s decorative “H” motif on several of the elements.
At the outer rim, multi-level rings display detailed markings for the seconds from 0 to 60 with Arabic numerals at the five seconds step. The legibility is further improved by the inclusion of the superluminova on its applied hour indices. The interior of the dial’s periphery features the inscription “Hamilton Viewmatic” and nicely rounds the dial.
The gents’ version of the new Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic Skeleton watch is housed in a mid-sized stainless steel case with the diameter of 40mm. Hamilton offers two types of wristlets for this model: a five-row stainless steel bracelet and a more comfortable, black leather strap.
The ladies’ model features a little bit smaller case with only 36mm in diameter. The round case is also crafted from stainless steel and boasts an iridescent white dial. This feminine timepiece has applied dewdrops-shaped hour indices, and narrow, round minute indices between these markers.
Instead of a black strap, it is accessorized with a white leather strap, edged and lined with ruby red that matches with the red skeletonized movement’s jewels.
An elegant wristlet comes with an “easy-click” attachment so it can be switched without a hitch with a five-row stainless steel bracelet.
Both models are shielded with antireflective sapphire crystals on both sides (front and back), thus allowing a view through the skeletonized movement from either side. The water resistance of the case is assured down to 50 meters (about 165 feet). The retail price of the new Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic Skeleton timepiece is $1,195.
