In 1957 Hamilton created the first electronic watch which was the watch of the future then. It came in an unconventional three-sided case with a pulse line adorning the dial. With this watch, science-fiction became reality. No wonder the Ventura quickly achieved a very iconic status. And now Hamilton has unveiled a new triangular timepiece for the world of tomorrow, once again taking the Ventura to its futuristic heritage – may we present the Ventura Elvis80 Skeleton.
With the new Ventura Elvis80 Skeleton, this space age-icon presents its most futuristic side yet. Hamilton has reinterpreted the classic appearance of the Ventura to create the slee, ergonomic Elvis80 Skeleton case shape, named after the original Ventura’s most famous fan – Elvis Presley, the King himself.
The Ventura Elvis80 Skeleton is an automatic rather than electronic watch that celebrates watchmaking in all its forms – with a clear view of the mechanics revealed through its skeletonised movement.
Hamilton has equipped the Ventura Elvis80 Skeleton with a stainless steel case. It sports a diameter of 42.5 mm and a height of 44.6 mm and comes with either a PVD coating in pink gold or black. The case is water-resistant to 5 atm.
The dials of the two versions of the Ventura Elvis80 Skeleton also differ in colour. Both come in the basic colour black, but while the pulse line on the pink gold version matches the case, Hamilton has opted for a red accent on the black watch. To ensure excellent legibility at all times, the hands are coated with Super-LumiNova. A scratch-resistant and anti-reflective sapphire crystal lies over both dials.
The H-10-S movement can be seen through the open dial. It is an uncompromising calibre that boasts a power reserve of 80 hours and a Côtes de Genève finish.
The Ventura Elvis80 Skeleton is completed by a rubber strap.
With this modern evolution of a visionary classic on your wrist, the future can come.
