Golden antiquity
   There is a deep historical link between Hamilton and gold. The ancient Romans called ‘gold’ ‘Aurum’, which means a brilliant dawn. The origin of Hamilton and gold can be traced back to 1923, when the brand produced two timepieces. The first model is a pincushion model. Only four are made, which are made of 18K yellow gold, 14K white gold and 14K green gold. Hamilton watches from this ‘golden age’ also include the famous 18K ‘Piping Rock’ model launched in 1928 *.
   In the Hamilton series, the ‘watch’ is exactly what it is called. This collection is full of extraordinary creativity, presenting ever-changing styles around the selected theme. His brisk and improvisational ‘improvisation’ relies on solid craftsmanship and advanced technology. The Hamilton Jazz Slim Gold Watch is made of 18K rose gold, with a case diameter of 40 mm and a water resistance of 30 meters. It presents the latest interpretation of a jazz theme that combines innovation and modernity.
   This watch features a timeless silver dial with slightly arched edges, hour markers with three-dimensional appliqués, and prince-like hands with sharp edges and corners. The 6 o’clock calendar window is clear and easy to read, and this popular design is rare on ultra-thin mechanical watches. The dial and crown are adorned with the brand’s new H mark, imprinting a distinctive brand personality on this watch, which combines classic beauty with modern elegance. For those who like to read the time from the front and back of the dial, you can enjoy the movement of the automatic mechanical movement through the transparent bottom cover of the watch.
