|Hamilton Jazzmaster Face 2 Face II Auto Chrono - Ltd Ed 1999pcs Ref. H32866781
The Jazzmaster Face 2 Face II Auto Chrono Ref. H32866781 sets forth where it designed to be the perfect combination of particular savoir-faire pieces with modern, sassy twists. It allows one t have essentially two watches in one with its distinct rotating case. Measuring wittily at 44mm wide and 15.5 in height, a combination of both brushed and polished stainless steel throughout the case mimics the typical sporty yet with beautiful contrast. Further, at 53mm, Hamilton gets to pack compelling features into the Jazzmaster and bears 50m water-resistant. Although it does wear big on wrist, the curation to the lugs allows it to wear exceptionally well and on most of our wrists, without feeling over-chunky.
Ok, we are not done with the case built. Further, the case features two slight domed sapphire crystals for both the main dial and the mono-chrono side, accentuating above the thick polished bezel. The lugs' design reminds one of some horn-shape, enliven the overall uniqueness of the watch, rather than just running the mills of a typical round dress watch. They are slightly thicker as to balance the overall, which enhanced the contrast polished bezel lines running in between the satin-brushed finished sides and top surface.

Further, the chronograph pushers mimic the horn-shaped lugs, giving the Jazzmaster much-completed look without feeling any of the design out of place. The big push-pull crown allows adjustment of the winding, day/date and time adjustment with ease even when it's on the wrist of one. Since this calls for dual-dial action, the system to change each side is user-friendly; by depressing the bottom of the case at the bezel and lugs area allows one to flip the dial faces in a rotating manner. Once the desired dial side is chosen, make sure the mini protruding tips at the four sides clip in nicely into the "outer" case.
Moving onto its main dial, it mainly divided into several sections, or should we say, several dials, four to exact. The primary time reading face sets forth as the backdrop that allows one to understand the primary hour and minutes, with the inclusion of the chronograph running seconds and day and date display at 3 o'clock. The main time-telling dial radiates a warm sunburst silver finished, only to be interrupted neatly by the two sub-counters at 12 and 6 o'clock positions that measure 30 minutes and 12 hours, respectively. Further to note, the top sub-dial gets overlapped by a semi-transparent window, showing off the day and date wheels, and a section of the running second track. The fully skeletonized second track is the largest of them, all while displaying the open-work of the movement through a smokey transparent plane. With so many gizmos going on, Hamilton manages to keep all the information explicit, allowing one to get a convenient time reading.
Caliber H-41, a modified Valjoux 7750 for dual displays
The second dial side is rather straight-forward with a sole purpose—elapsed time-reading through its turquoise chronograph hand. However, the central chrono allows three different readings through the measurement scales printed on the crystal and dial. There is a tachymeter for measuring speed, a telemeter used to measure the distance to a distant sound, and lastly, a pulsometer that allows the wearer to keep track of a person's pulse. Further, since its the "back" of the watch, the whole mechanical-works are seen through the sapphire crystal, where one able to admire the pelage decorations on the bridges and Hamilton's signature semi-skeletonized rotor spinning and winding away.

is powered by its unique Caliber H-41, which is a tweaked Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement.

With all this said, Hamilton truly is the few that can produce such movement upgrade and further being well priced.
