Just in time for the 75th birthday of Elvis Presley, Hamilton Wachtes is launching a new edition of the classic Ventura XXL. This watch became famous as Elvis wore it in the film “Blue Hawaii”. Typical for this model is the individual shield shape. The technology was adapted to today’s standards and the new models were equipped with a reliable Swiss quartz movement. The design of the case reminds in its details of its predecessor from the 1950s and is now presented in stainless steel in gold-yellow PVD coating.
The black dial is similar to the one-time Ventura watch with indixes, which, like the wall clocks of the time, flow circularly to one point.
The Hamilton Ventura, which has begun its career as a pioneer, also claims more than half a century later with a limited XXL edition. This special timepiece impresses with unexpected things and thus gives its classic roots a futuristic and robust grip. The familiar shield shape of the anthracite-colored housing gets a distinctive modern look through the ground surfaces and the XXL mass. The square crown is nicely fitted into the case and runs at 3 o’clock. The black dial gives a sporty impression and with its background a music box.
The fiery red gives the whole a daring touch.
This limited edition is still being produced until the end of 2010 and is a major contributor to the legend of the King of Rock n Roll.
