Hamilton Pan Europ

Hamilton Pan Europ

Inspired by a Hamilton timepiece of the same name originally introduced in 1971, the modern Pan Europ takes a nostalgic look back in time. The year 1971, also the number of pieces in this limited edition, is a significant date in Hamilton’s history. It marks the year the brand joined the Swatch Group, then known as SSIH. Find wallpaper for this piece inside.

The slightly square, retro-styled stainless steel case measures 45mm in diameter and houses Swiss automatic chronograph movement H31, based on the Valjoux 7753. The movement’s twin subdials present continuous seconds at 9 o’clock and a 30 minute totalizer at 3 o’clock, with the chronograph seconds hand mounted in the center. The slightly oversize date is located at 6 o’clock. The inner bezel contains a tachymeter track which can be used to measure speed over a known distance. The strap is brown leather embossed with a crocodile pattern.
