Hamilton Khaki Aviation Converter

Hamilton extends its range of pilot watches to include models with a slide-rule bezel for conversions and calculations on the fly.

amilton has been providing the flying community with precision timepieces for over a century, from the first U.S. Airmail service in 1918 to today’s daredevil air racers. With the Khaki Aviation Converter, the brand provides a way for modern aviators to perform crucial flying calculations on their wrists.

The watch’s distinguishing feature is a bi-directional rotating bezel, whose logarithmic graduations interact with the fixed scale around the dial, creating a ‘slide rule’ for performing mathematical calculations while in flight. These could include critical factors like airspeed, distance, fuel consumption, rate of climb or descent, and flight time.
