Dressed in an ultra-modern outfit, the Hamilton Ventura Elvis 80 pays tribute to Elvis Presley, who would have turned 80 on January 8, 2015. The Ventura, with its striking, shield-shaped case, co-starred with the king of rock and roll in the 1961 movie “Blue Hawaii”. The 2015 interpretation of that watch has mastered major technical and material challenges with the automatic model powered by Hamilton’s own H-10 movement, integrating a power reserve of 80 hours.

Innovation is an integral part of the Hamilton Ventura, introduced as the world’s first electric watch in 1957. The Hamilton Ventura Elvis 80 breaks challenging new technical and design ground with its steeply sloped crystal and curved dial, contemporary case architecture and intricate attachment fixture. The triangular shape attracts welcome attention and taking the materials used to new performance territories. The harmony of the fully integrated case is underlined by smooth brushed and polished surfaces and the angular stepping has been replaced by more flowing contouring.

The Hamilton Ventura Elvis 80 family has refreshingly broad, unisex appeal due to a range of material and color combinations, as well as a choice between an automatic and quartz movement. In the automatic versions, black meets black with a sleek PVD case and either a sporty rubber or a leather strap with stitching.

Stainless steel adds its accent to the three quartz variations. A subtly stylish Hamilton orange second hand passes minute markings in the same color from 12 o’clock to 3 o’clock. A unique, engraved crown completes the look of this special timepiece.
