The black leather strap has a cleverly-integrated bracelet attached. Its unusually-shaped articulation points ensure a smooth flow to the vision.
Story behind & beyond:
The 1961 movie Blue Hawaii featured the Ventura and 2015 now saw a much better interpretation of the Elvis watch through masterful application of recent technologies, bringing some major technical and material changes. Later on, the Hamilton Ventura had shown its face in MIB (Men in Black) and today, it’s more of a period-style watch rather than being just futuristic, exotic or sexy. It’s spacey, it is shield-y – and it will be so for maybe the more than the next 50 years.
The Hamilton Ventura Elvis80 Quartz H24551731 Men's Watch is a distinct entrance to the New-Design era, creating rave reviews and earning hearty praises; particularly, from those with a knack for ultra-modern outfits. It is all about a spontaneous, soulful energy paying tribute to the King of R&R. A creation to honor Elvis at his 80th spring (Jan 8, 2015), the Ventura is an iconic, striking shield-shaped wonder in stainless steel that anchors in its origin of the time of pop-culture taking its shape.

Little details make the difference:
The Hamilton Ventura Elvis80 Quartz H24551731 Men's Watch stands at 44.6mm at its widest point. The black leather strap has a cleverly-integrated bracelet attached. Its unusually-shaped articulation points ensure a smooth flow to the vision. This takes Ventura very close to being something indescribable, which in turn, increases its value. The update, despite maintaining a greater bulk, appears subtler in many ways than its predecessors. It has strange crests and troughs that make it quite a piece of a wrist-sculpture.
The ETA F06.111 quartz movement of the Hamilton Mens Watches are also used in more expensive watches. It has 3 jewels the others alike in the ETA Trendline, which is a notch above the economy Fashionline movement series.
As for its face, there’s retro-design influence aplenty! Stylized hour markers (@ 6, 9 and 12) are chamfered to their shapes; the orange and black combination on the dial turns the Hamilton Ventura Elvis80 Quartz H24551731 Men's Watch hot!
In praise of the Crown:
The crown is an exciting one. Its sloped sides are a stylistic choice no doubt, but its real purpose behind that conical shape facilitates wrist-movement without getting bitten. It adds to the iconic design and makes it an ageless, pop culture piece.
Bottom line: The Hamilton Elvis 80 Quartz Men's Watch is for edgy, toy-lovin’ big boys with lots of hip-swinging swagger!
