If you are wild about retro timepiece, you would not miss the Hamilton Pan-Europ. This is a vintage chronograph which needs not to be maintained with constant care. This watch is true to the original but changed a little bit. The oversized fashion case gives a feeling of original Pan-Europ of 1971. The blue dial and bezel bring the watch a fresh, tranquil and mysterious touch. This is an extreme men’s watch, brown leather strap looks classic and it would be match well with a brown leather jacket.

The original model of Hamilton Pan-Europ was an automatic one, while this chronograph is featured with Valjoux movement. And this is a modified piece of limited-edition. The big change is that the crown has been moved from the left side to the right side, which is practical to those right-handed persons. Actually, most people are right-handed, so this change is very convenient for daily use.

The watch has a very big case which is 45mm. May be it just stays the same with original models in the 70s. In all probability, the case is too large to wear for people in modern world. Even some sport watches do not have such big cases. However, it is a comfortable watch and is a limited edition. If you can overcome the size and wear this watch, you will enjoy it because only a few people own this wristwatch.

The watch will be available in September 2011 with the price around $1900. This refined and stunning timepiece not only strengthens the tradition of the brand, but also showcases contemporary elements from a new perspective.
