Hamilton Khaki Conservation Chronograph
Limited Production with Harrison Ford and Conservation International
Model #: H60416553
Movement: H31 (base 7753)
Designed in collaboration with Harrison Ford, the actor and Vice Chair of Conservation International (CI), the Conservation Auto Chrono is designed to encourage individuals never to lose sight of the impact of time. A significant portion of the proceeds generated by this watch will contribute to the time-critical work of CI, an organization that empowers societies to responsibly and sustainably care for nature, our global biodiversity, for the well-being of humanity. The watch contains a new movement, the H31, which has an above average power reserve of 60 hours. It also affords impressive operational stability, assuring long-term accuracy. A vintage beige dial, an intricately grooved case and a stitched brown leather strap add nostalgic touches to underline the theme of preservation and longevity. On the back of the case is the charity’s logo, endorsed by the signature of Harrison Ford.
Single Unit Watch Winder
Ebony Macassar Finish
5 year lithium battery
The elegant, domed case of the Prive Lithium watchwinder demonstrates the superb woodworking skills of the artisans who build each individual case by hand. Necessarily, these winders are produced in limited quantities and are only offered for sale to watch collectors by a select group of high-end ORBITA stocking dealers in the USA and Canada.
Watches are gently wound on this quality watchwinder, with the mainspring tension of the watch held virtually constant, assuring accuracy. There is absolutely no chance of over-winding or stressing the watch’s winding mechanism. The winder is fully programmable, with settings of 650, 900 or 1300 turns per day (TPD), the latter selection perfect for winding many extended power reserve watches with double barrel mainsprings.
The program can also provide clockwise, counterclockwise, or reversing operation. Innovative software design provides automatic TPD adjustment to compensate for any battery voltage “droop” over time.
- The Prive watchwinder is supplied with two 3.6 VDC factory-installed lithium batteries which are guaranteed to provide at least five years of service life. The winder also carries an iron-clad, five year product warranty.
- The Prive case, made from solid mahogany, is finished in a fine ebony macassar European veneer.
- The Prive Lithium watchwinder’s operation is virtually silent and, as double precision ball bearings support the rotating member, there will never be need for lubrication or maintenance.
- The case interior is lined in soft black suede and the cover’s gold-plated quadrant hinges facilitate easy watch insertion and removal.
