Hamilton introduces its first regulator

Hamilton showcased the Hamilton Jazzmaster Regulator at BaselWorld 2013, representing the first time it has created a regulator.

The American born brand, which features Swiss movements and technologies, has used the exclusive H-12 movement in the Hamilton Jazzmaster Regulator. The typical regulator separation of the minute and hour hands on different axials and subdials is not only intended to improve accuracy, but has also given the watch a distinctive look and making it easier for wearers to read the minutes at a glance.

There are three 42mm timepieces in the Hamilton Jazzmaster Regulator family, providing blue or silver-coloured dials and straps come in either leather or stainless steel.

Regulator complications first came onto the scene in the late 17th century and are used to alter the rate of the watch, traditionally by changing the position of the curb pins and the effective lengthening of the hairspring.
