Hamilton Ventura Electric 14k 1961
People call it “the watch of the future”. There’s no pragmatic purpose for its angular, Art-Deco, retro-futuristic case shape, but it was absolutely different from any watch before it, and it was imperative, that it also look different.
Elvis Presley's own Hamilton Ventura, was purchased by ‘the King’ in 1965
In a mechanical movement, the power comes from the mainspring – released, one beat at a time, by the swinging balance wheel. The power in Hamilton's watch, however, came from the balance wheel – receiving a periodic “push” from its contact with a battery-powered electromagnet – and the motion of all the hands were indexed back from this impulse.
