Hamilton is a six-time partner of the EAA AirVenture and the Timekeeping Sponsor of the event. In addition, Hamilton’s ambassador, Nicolas Ivanoff, the famous French aerobatic pilot with nearly 20 years of air show performances under his belt, will perform thrilling stunts at the event in his Hamilton-branded Edge 540 plane.
Hamilton will also be an exhibitor at the event, at Booth #3131 in Exhibit Hangar C, showcasing its innovative line of precision-crafted pilot watches.

In addition to keeping the first American airmail service on track, Hamilton became the official watch of TWA, Eastern, United and Northwest in the 1930s. Adventure joined accuracy as these instruments demonstrated their unrivalled expertise ‘co-piloting’ expeditions with destinations as challenging as the South Pole, and partnering the first American coast to coast air services which took commercial flying into the modern age. Today Hamilton is Timekeeping Sponsor of a variety of international aviation events such as the EAA AirVenture at Oshkosh, USA, otherwise known as “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.” In 2014 it also will be official partner of the unique Free Flight World Masters Tour in France and just served as a partner to the Rome International Airshow.
