Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H32515555) Specifications

 

Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H32515555) looks very smart, sleek, and sharp as a dress watch with guilloche dial design at the center. On the look at the Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H32515555) and you know that this is a very smart and sharp dress watch. It is built that way too. The diameter is just 40 mm, quite small by today’s standard, and measures 11mm thick. This make the watch small and looks very dressy.

The design on Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H32515555)

The lug width is typical 20mm and sports a dark brown leather strap. One unusual thing that we’ve noticed is the leather strap is using a pin buckle, instead of a butterfly clasp usually found in Swiss-made watches. Some people prefer butterfly clasp a sit is more friendly to the strap and won’t damage it as much as the pin buckle will.

The stainless steel casing is highly polished and features slim lugs, which is very suitable for the small, sharp, and dressy theme of the watch. There is a layer textured design at the sides of the watch, which will not make it look too boring. On the back is the open case-back, which is where the name Viewmatic comes in. You can view the automatic movement where you can see the ETA 2824-2 automatic-self-wind ticking away. The water-resistant is only 50 m or 165 feet.

The dial on Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H32515555)

Apart from the slim casing, the sleekness of the Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H32515555) is contributed by its beautiful guilloche dial. The dial is complemented by silver hands and markers which make the whole dial design looks fabulous without any contrasting elements.

The hands are sharp slim hands with little but of lume on top. The markers are combination of index markers and numeral markers at 6,9 and 12 o’clock. The best thing about the hands are sharp with those clean edges It really gives a modern look to an otherwise simple and clean dial. The font of the numeral markers are also a bit different than other watches too, a detail that anyone would practically love.

The feature on Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H32515555)

For added functionality, Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H32515555) added a date display box at the right of the dial. The date display is surrounded by a not so symmetry box frame, which is another design element that you will definitely adorn. At the outer edge of the dial are minute markers to help you tell time with great precision.

The movement on Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H32515555)

Inside the Hamilton Jazzmaster Viewmatic (H32515555) is the venerable ETA 2824-2 Automatic-self-wind movement. For those familiar with Swiss-made watches, you might have heard about this movement. It is one of ETA’s most popular automatic movement and used in many low to middle range of watches, normally in Swatch group brands.

This movement uses 25 jewels and has 28800 vibrations per hour or 8 beats per second. This gives it a smoother sweeping seconds hands action as compared to most low-middle range Japanese watches from Seiko or Citizen.

The movement can be hacked and manual wind. It also has an accuracy of +-15 seconds per day, though most owners report that their watches will run more accurate than that. A great thing about the 2824-2 movement is how robust it is without much problems to the owners.  It comes as no surprise as the movement has been around for about 3 decades and ETA/Swatch doesn’t have any indication of replacing it.
