Hamilton Broadway: Watches for Modern Men
The men's Hamilton Broadway collection is best described as modern, stylish, and sophisticated. These timepieces are designed for modern men who value quality and performance. Top models feature an automatic chronograph caliber.
Stylish and Sporty Luxury Watches for Men
The men's watches of the Hamilton Broadway collection are modern and geared toward younger audiences. This series is home to three-hand watches, as well as chronographs. The Broadway GMT is a world time watch with a GMT hand and 24 cities listed on its bezel. Hamilton embraces color in this collection, including numerous models with sporty two-tone dials.
Each timepiece is made of stainless steel and comes on a leather strap or stainless steel bracelet, depending on the particular reference number. The cases range from 40 to 46 mm in diameter, sizes that generally appeal to a more masculine audience. Hamilton equips three-hand watches with either quartz or automatic calibers from ETA SA (Manufacture Horlogère Suisse). In the case of mechanical calibers, Hamilton then modifies them in house. Three-hand models feature the calibers H-10 or H-30, while the H-21 powers the chronographs and the H-14 ticks away inside the Broadway GMT.
