Hamilton Chrono-Matic Pan-Europ 703


Brand: Hamilton

Model: Chrono-Matic Pan-Europ 703 ref. 11003-3 Automatic Chronograph (Heuer cal. 11 Movement); Swiss Made circa early 1970s

Case: Solid stainless steel case with screw-down back is approximately 40mm excluding the original Hamilton "H" signed crown and original "fluted" pushers

Strap: Brand new 20mm textured blue hand-made calfskin strap (Hermès style) with stainless steel tang buckle

Movement: Hamilton Chrono-Matic cal. 11 self-winding automatic chronograph movement by Heuer (17 jewels); subtle date window at 6 o'clock; Swiss Made

Features: Stunning original blue dial; original handset; original rotating "MH" (minutes-hours) bezel has faded to a lighter blue "ghost" hue and can display time in a second time zone; original internal tachymeter bezel designed for racing; subtle date window at 6 o'clock

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with minor honest wear from age and use; solid stainless steel case is razor sharp and retains its original brushed finish and sharp edges/bevels throughout; case appears to be unpolished; all Tritium lume plots are present on the dial and have aged to a pleasing yellow patina; matching original Tritium handset with yellow patina; original rotating bezel has just the right amount of fade; some minor scratches on the acrylic crystal

Other: In 1969, a group of watch brands headlined by Hamilton, Heuer, and Breitling, created an automatic chronograph movement known as the cal. 11. This top-secret research and development undertaking was dubbed Project 99 and represented a huge leap forward in mechanical watchmaking. Powered by the aforementioned cal. 11 movement, the Hamilton Chrono-Matic Pan-Europ 703 was designed specifically with racing in mind. This particular example is in superb condition and exactly how we like to find our watches: honest and original.
