Linked to the aeronautical world for more than a century, Hamilton equipped the wrists of the first pilots seeking precision with its timepieces and navigation instruments.
Last September, the watchmaker announced its partnership with Air-Glacier, a Swiss airline specialising in helicopter transport, thus broadening its links with the aviation industry.
Providing aviators with the best-performing watches is part of the brand’s DNA, as it strives to support the world’s best pilots. In a rescue mission, it’s all about timing... A few seconds can make all the difference and ensure the success of a transport operation. Air-Glaciers has therefore decided to trust Hamilton to support the pilots in their missions.
With 57 years of experience in the field of rescue, Air-Glaciers is a major player in the Swiss Alps. The highly qualified helicopter transport company, which specialises in extreme rescues, also provides daily transport of goods and people. The company has six bases in Sion, Collombey, Leysin, Gampel, Lauterbrunnen and Gstaad. Its dedication has led it to set up training courses for professionals and the general public, thus enabling it to pass on its values and its expertise.
