Hamilton Intra-Matic Auto Chrono Blue Review

BY ROBERT-JAN BROER, http://www.fratellowatches.com

You know you did something right when people start to compare your watch to one with a price tag three times as high.

Whether it was justified or not to criticize the Breitling Premier chronograph for being a very expensive Hamilton Intra-Matic Auto Chrono (Michael Stockton mentioned it already in his Breitling Premier B01 review here), the comments do stick with you. I handled both the Hamilton Intra-Matic Chrono and the Breitling Premier B01, and I prefer the looks of the Hamilton. However, let’s make it clear that this doesn’t mean that the €1995 will buy you the same or better quality and finished watch as the €7500 Breitling. It just might buy you a better-looking watch. But again, the comments have been made a number of times on social media and they are in ‘the air’ for sure.

Nice looking watch but the whole initial Breitling comparison thing tuned me out.

Harkens back to the days of "this invicta is like a rolex but alot cheaper" type of crap spew.

I wish this had an exhibition case window. I imagine this is a pretty cool movement to stare at.

It's a nice looking watch and the size is right as far as I am concerned. Agree with the reviewer that the case is too shiny (my main bitch with Breitling, generally). It appears from the photographs that they used no AR so the crystal looks as shiny as the case. Price-wise at 2K, this doesn't look to be in line with the usual value I expect from Hamilton.
