Lights on; the watch brand Hamilton takes the stage in Broadway, sweeping charts and hearts with its successful ongoing film career, topping its illustrious portfolio with a line of sporty, cosmopolitan watches. This 21st century timepiece showcases a prowess in keeping time, as well as capturing attention, thanks to a construction that pays tribute to the brand's deep American roots. And now, it tips its hat to the legendary theater district in New York, which shines with dazzling lights at night time as queues grew, waiting for their next favorite show.

This, it must be told, is not the first venture of Hamilton, with regards to famous avenues. The brand's prime series, a line of pocket watches released in 1890s, has been termed as Broadway Limited. There is no doubt that Hamilton, for many times, have taken inspiration from the vast New York skyline to create an ultra-modern watch.

In this dashing new design, Hamilton executes a decidedly American style. Here, Broadway comes in three distinct versions; one is a 40mm Day Date, a 42mm Day Date Automatic and a 43mm Auto Chrono. All these models bear power reserves starting from 60 to 80 hours—nothing short of amazing.

But what is more delightful is the unique case design and architecture. Broadway is all about lines. The clean, minimalist black dial is crafted along vertical lines that seem to evoke an upward looking effect. The same lines are reprised on the decorative ring, just below the bezel and crown, forming a magnificent leitmotif that adds character to these models. Unmistakably urban, the central line on the dial is an illustration of the New York street that runs in between the tall skyscrapers. This motif stretches all the way through the smooth leather strap, complete with a visible stitching, and is finished with a triple row bracelet.

To top it all off, the outer ring has skyscraper styled hands and applied indexes to add to the visual depth. The three models come with a red tipped seconds hand that adds a nice splash of color into the design. Each has applied luminescent coating to ensure optimal readability.

A look into the three models: the Day Date Quartz feature a solid back and a simplistic nod to New York drain covers. The Day Date Auto comes with a calendar window at 6 o'clock position and the Auto Chrono sports a bezel tachymeter scale. All three contains a heavy dash of the spirit of Broadway, something that can be handsomely worn during a weekend trip or a jaunt in the metro.
