Dark versus light. This is the eternally compelling theme at play in Hamilton’s new Black & Gold Collection, a melding of the subdued and the vibrant. Hamilton has brought together five of its most popular models — the Jazzmaster Automatic 36mm, the Jazzmaster Auto Chrono 42mm, the Pan Europ, the Ventura Chrono Quartz, and the Ventura S — and dressed their stainless steel cases in a black PVD coating with gold accents for an under-the-radar look that is at once stealthy and conspicuous.
Gold hands, indices, and minute/seconds tracks pop against the matte black surfaces of the watches’ cases and dials, bringing eclectic model families together beneath the same bi-color umbrella. Matte black or black-and-gold straps further reinforce the subtle color scheme, while a mix of automatic and quartz movements, and various case shapes means there’s a timepiece available for every taste. A celebration of duality and the brand’s decades-long ties to Hollywood, the new Black & Gold Collection encapsulates watches made of light and shadow.
