Hamilton introduced a new digital/analog pilot watch at Baselworld 2011 – the Khaki Flight Timer. As its name suggests, it is flight timer, and is capable of calculating all the necessary measurements that a pilot needs to know while flying. One important function to any pilot, is a stopwatch because it allows for multiple important measurements to be calculated, such as ground speed, wind speed, fuel usage and more.

The Flight Timer features a digital stopwatch function, with a separate seconds display. There is also a digital 24-hour time display in the lower half of the dial, this allows the wearer to keep track of a second time zone, and if it is day or night in the second time zone. The analog central hour and and minute hands are skeletonized, preventing these hands from blocking the digital displays beneath them. Overall, this is a very useful and professional timepiece that will surely be an asset to any pilot.

Retail price is $1,345.
