Advert Text:

Introducing the Hamilton Chronomatic. Is $200 too much to pay for years of winning rallies, timing free falls, and perfect 3-minute eggs?

This is the only egg timer made that makes you look like a he-man. Because the new shock-resistant calendar Chronomatic is a rugged, durable, multi-purpose timepiece. Not just a watch.

It's calibrated to record 1/5 second intervals with a sweep second hand. There are stop-start and reset buttons as well as hour and minute totalizers. And it's water protected up to three atmospheres. There's even a tachymeter, for sports car buffs. And the self-winding mechanism that makes it completely automatic is placed right in the heart of the movement instead of on top. So the Chronomatic is thinner than you'd expect. 

It's a perfect gift. For pilots. Engineers. Scientists. Photographers. Doctors. TV Producers. Sportsmen. And even up-tight businessmen who are fussy about their 3-minute eggs.

These framed adverts can only be shipped in the continental United States. Apologies to you overseas watch fans but I'm working on other solutions!
