Hamilton Count-Down Chrono-Matic GMT Caliber 14
This is a great looking Hamilton Chrono-Matic GMT Count-Down with world's first automatic chronograph introduced in 1969. This model was introduced in 1972, and listed as Chronomatic "E". It was priced at $250, the most expensive of Hamilton's "Wrist Chronograph Series." The watch is Fully Serviced, and winds, sets, and runs great, and keeps excellent time, and the chronograph feature works flawlessly. The Caliber 14 was the 24 Hour GMT version of the Caliber 11, which was a collaborative effort between Hamilton, Heuer, Breitling, and Buren. Each company released a version of this movement, and it can be easily distinguished by having the winding/setting crown opposite the chronograph pushers.
Important features to note on these watches include the crowns, pushers, and bezel finish. The bezel has a very unique matte finish, and this example is in superb unpolished condition with razor sharp edges. The anodized finish on the crowns and pushers is often worn to the steel below, and this example is in near perfect condition regarding the crowns/pushers. The only slight detraction from the entire dial can be found in the inner am/pm rotating bezel. The numbers 1-24 were applied with a vellum process, and some of vellum has come loose in the white am section leaving the numbers 12 to 18 missing. With such a colorful dial this is hardly noticeable, but worth mentioning.
