    Note: This watch, from the personal collection of René Rondeau, is extremely rare. In 1965 Hamilton was approached by Kraft Foods. In previous years Kraft had purchased "Ventura" watches for corporate awards, but Hamilton stopped making this model in 1963. To satisfy Kraft's request for a similar dramatically-styled asymmetric gold watch 100 "Kraft" 14k gold Pacers were produced.
