In 2017, we reviewed the limited edition Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 Chrono. By successfully pulling from a few popular Hamilton references dating back to the ‘60s and ‘70s (including the Caliber 11-powered Chrono-matic, which Hamilton released in 1969, and the Chronograph A from the year before), the Intra-Matic 68 Chrono turned out to be one of the most interesting neo-vintage releases of that year.
