This is a great looking Vintage Hamilton Chrono-matic Caliber 11 watch that winds, sets, and runs great, and keeps excellent time, and was recently serviced. The automatic feature works well, and keeps the watch wound when wearing. The date feature works properly as well, and changes each night at midnight. The first automatic chronographs were introduced in 1969, along with another iconic movement, the quartz by Seiko. It was also the year man landed on the moon.
Hamilton partnered with Breitling, and Heuer to develop the Caliber 11, and Hamilton clearly did a superb job on the coveted "Panda Dial." It plays on the black/white contrast to integrate the outer tachymeter track and matching black date window at 6, along with white central dial with black chrono seconds, and black subdials with white subdial hands. It is truly a classic design.
