Jazzmaster Face 2 Face Limited Edition is an updated version of the identically named 2013 issue watch. The update extends to a new movement and dial layout. What has not been tinkered with is the interesting rotating case, that pivots inside the oval-shaped case, allowing the owner to have two watches in one, and giving Hamilton the opportunity to introduce a wealth of interesting features.
The new Jazzmaster Face 2 Face II takes duality to a whole new level. The impressive list of functions starts with a passing-through seconds hand animating both sides of the rotating case, skeletonised elements, three sub dials, day/date windows. The engine is a H-41 automatic chronograph caliber. The movement drives sword-shaped hour and minute hands, the aforementioned passing-through chronograph seconds hand and powers three scales: pulsometer, tachymeter and telemeter.
Reminiscent of its predecessor, the Jazzmaster Face 2 Face II is teamed with a black leather strap accented by turquoise, soft-touch lining and double stitching.
Only 1,999 Hamilton Jazzmaster Face 2 Face II Limited Edition watches are made. The production run numbering is printed on the side of the rotating case. During normal wear, it remains hidden. It is only revealed as flip between dials.
There is plenty of materials, textures and colours and layers to keep one discovering for quite some time.
The Hamilton Jazzmaster Face 2 Face II Limited Edition is certainly an engaging piece offering much enjoyment. Certainly sufficient amount of updates to stand apart from its predecessor.
