    Having tried and failed to find a Chrono-matic for a decent price lately I got really excited when I woke up today and saw that Hamilton was doing a modern homage with the Intramatic 68!

    ...at 42 mm. ::facepalm1::

    I do think they're heading in the right direction. The reverse panda dial design is excellent and really well balanced in my opinion. It would have been perfect at 38 or 40 mm. But at that size and at $2,195 retail... I just don't know.

    Thoughts?

    38MM would be perfect, 40MM a little bit too big

    42MM? Pass...

    It's a shame. This would have been an instant buy at 38 mm for sure.

    On a related note, if anyone has a vintage Chrono-matic they want to sell (or knows of one), let me know... ;)

    Yup that's a shame.... it would've been perfect at anywhere between 38-40mm if you ask me. D*mn.
