A few weeks back, I wrote about the new Intra-Matic Auto Chrono, Hamilton’s latest neo-vintage release pulling inspiration from two iconic Hamilton watches—the Chronograph A, which Hamilton released in 1968, and the Caliber 11-powered Chrono-matic released a year later. The Auto Chrono is, as noted in that introductory article, a follow up to 2017’s Intra-Matic 68 Chrono, which was a limited edition timepiece that has since long sold out. This time around, the Auto Chrono is a general release model due this coming fall.
I’ve already offered some of my initial impressions based on the press materials provided by Hamilton. I recently got the watch in for a hands-on review, so now that I’ve spent some time with it let us take a closer look.
