    Hamilton Intra-Matic 68

    In 1968, Hamilton introduced the Chronograph B that would launch the famous "reverse panda" face with its two white counters on a black dial. Hugely popular in the 1960s and 70s, it is now highly valued by collectors. The new Intra-Matic 68 automatic chronograph revives the original design as it reprises the black/white contrast not once but twice: first with the white counters with black hands against a black background, and again with the white chrono seconds hand and black dial, itself circled by a white tachymeter scale. The H-31 automatic movement delivers a 60-hour power reserve, a welcome upgrade, while the case moves up in size to a 42-mm diameter. Rounding it all off, a black perforated leather strap adds to the vintage vibe of this 1,968-piece limited series.

    If it was 40mm I might have considered it.

    42mm and big pushers will wear too large for me. But good lookin' though.

    I love it, especially if the white is more off-white in color.

    42mm is definitely on the larger side for me as well. Agree that 40mm would've been perfect.

    Been jonesing for a reverse panda. Might go with the Hamilton Intra-Matic 68 vs. the new Tag Heuer Autavia that's coming soon given it's less than half the retail cost.
