Hamilton – This is a timepiece : Khaki Automatic with black face, cream numerals, fully one to twelve hours, minute and second ticks with fives and a timeless (excuse the pun) font. Stainless body, black leather strap. Perfection.

This model is not available for retail… drat!

A timepiece bearing the Triumph logo as well as numerous timing, countdown, stopwatch, and alarm functions. Chunky like a James Bond chronograph..

..or something for the Interational traveller perhaps; complete with a second timezone.

Or a little more sophisticated; suits you sir?
