The extravagant Hamilton Ventura
Hamilton is a world-renowned brand that has been partly recognised for appearing in legendary Hollywood movies. The brand is also known, however, for the introduction of innovative watch mechanics. Long ago, the Hamilton brand engaged in a three-year secret-development titled “Project X”. The result was the first battery-powered watch to be introduced to the world. The innovative watch technology was fitted in the Hamilton Ventura model.
As if the modern movement was not exciting enough, Hamilton launched its first battery-powered movement in a watch that was uniquely characterised by a distinctive triangular case shape – a timepiece none other than the Ventura. Not surprising, the Ventura found further fame when it was adorned on the wrist of Elvis Presley in the musical film Blue Hawaii. Since then, the Ventura has remained a classic among American design history. Furthermore, the timepiece has never ceased to delight the nostalgic souls of vintage watch lovers.
