While they may be better known for simple watches like the Khaki Field, Hamilton are certainly capable of more intricate designs. That's exactly what the Face 2 Face range represents. These limited edition timepieces feature rotating dials, enabling the user to change the look and complication on their wrist in a heartbeat.

This latest model is the third release in the range. It features a circular 44mm dial, breaking from tradition for the range, which has previously used an oval watch face. The main face features a three-dial chronograph complication, with day and date at the three o'clock position. The sub-dials are layered to give the watch a more 3D appearance.

Flip the dial around, and you'll find a single hand which can be used with either a tachymeter or a pulsometer. The reverse dial features an exhibition caseback, allowing you to see the skeletonised H-41 movement in all it's glory. That movement gives the Jazzmaster Face 2 Face III a cool 60 hour power reserve, too, making it perfect even as a less frequently worn piece.

Elsewhere, you'll find a 22mm brown leather strap with blue stitching which echoes accents on the dial and the hands. The strap has a lovely patina, giving it an aged, worn-in appearance right out of the box. It features a stainless steel folding clasp matching the case material.

That case is 44mm across, too, and a staggering 17.25mm thick – this certainly isn't a watch for those with slimmer wrists! It's rated for 50m of water resistance, which is perfectly fine for a watch like this. Anyone thinking of taking this for a dip needs to think again though. There are a host of great dive watches out there, for that purpose.

The Hamilton Jazzmaster Face 2 Face III is limited to just 999 pieces, and is available for £2,595 / $2,995 / AU$4,500.
