Hamilton has a connection to aviation dating back to 1918. The pilots of the first US airmail service between Washington and New York wore Hamilton watches. By the 1930s Hamilton was the official timekeeper of choice for commercial airlines in the USA. Today the aeronautical spirit lives on. Hamilton is the official timekeeper of the Red Bull Air Race world championship, the new dimension of motorsports. Cooperating closely with leading air squadrons, the world famous French aerobatic pilot Nicolas Ivanoff and Air Zermatt, the prestigious transport and rescue helicopter company from Switzerland, Hamilton is taking aviation watches to new heights. The brand also works closely with the world’s leading directors, costume designers, prop masters and screenwriters to create timepieces that the film industry features in major motion pictures.
