Hamilton and the Beauty of Duality

Swiss-made American brand Hamilton meshes two distinct personalities in its latest watch, the Jazzmaster Face2face. Unique in its making, the watch features a rotating case that gives its user the ability to switch out from a chronograph-centred dial to a dressier three-hand timekeeper one. Limited to 888 pieces worldwide, the timepiece presents a novel concept and one that allows its wearer to be in charge of how his watch represents him.

Two different movements are present in this brilliant undertaking by Hamilton, both ETA-made. The ETA 2671 drives the elegant and simple dial while the ETA 2095 Automatic Chronograph sets the pace for the more complicated dial. Both dials showcase a skeletonised look, showing off the beauty of the movements. The chronograph dial is made out of smoked crystal, letting the user in on the date dial below the face.

What you're paying for is essentially the ability to switch watches on the move, determined by your fancy. Priced reasonably at 6195 USD, Hamilton has broken new ground in the watch world. We'll let the video do more of the talking.
