The original Ventura, launched in 1957, made watchmaking history as the world's first electrical, battery powered watch. Creating an automatic version of a watch famed for its battery powered movement is a bold move, and one that's typical of Hamilton. It's also a fitting tribute to the ultimate rulebreaker and Ventura's biggest fan: Elvis Presley. The H-10 movement that features in this model has a power reserve of 80 hours in a nod to what would have been Elvis's 80th birthday.
A three-hand movement with a date function and boasting a superior power reserve of 80 hours, the H-10 appears with intricate contrasting snail and pearled patterns for the American Classic models it drives and streamlined surfaces for the pilots’ watch.
