Hamilton is among the first creators of field watches, delivering pieces for the US military before the style even had a name. For more than 100 years the brand’s field watches have characterized the class. Somewhere in the range of 1942 and 1945 all regular citizen creation was halted to focus solely on furnishing the military with watches during World War II. Following its refreshed Khaki Field Mechanical 38mm line in 2018 with a mid-century stylish, Hamilton presents the Khaki Field Titanium Automatic, a bigger part with a more contemporary dial and titanium case accessible in two tastes. We as of late went involved with the two forms and this is what you should think about these two, cool-looking available pieces.
Hamilton has a solid assortment of field watches donning hand-wound, automatic and quartz developments in sizes going from 38mm to an incredible 50mm in width. The Khaki Field Titanium Automatic falls in at 42mm, which is on the upper end for a conventional field watch, yet truly wearable and contemporary. The titanium case keeps it light and comfortable on the wrist and double sapphire precious stones add to by and large strength. The completion is brushed all through with a silk sheen, and TITANIUM is intensely engraved on the left side.
Two variants of the Hamilton Khaki Field Titanium Automatic are accessible. The first has a work of art, non-covered evaluation 2 titanium case with dim dial. The subsequent variant, somewhat bolder, has its titanium case covered with dark PVD and the dial is completely dark. A distinctively huge crown is endorsed with the brand’s vintage logo and is a push/pull issue, however the piece is as yet water-impervious to 100 meters.
On the non-covered Khaki Field Titanium Automatic, the dial is dull dim and dark with three particular segments. The dim inward segment includes a 24-hour scale, while a second external ring in dark has huge Arabic hour numerals over a tight winding example that separates it from the other two segments. The furthest ring matches the internal segment’s tone with a point by point moment and seconds track, alongside spots of lume. The dark PVD-covered model highlights a completely dark dial yet holds the various surfaces and a similar format. The needle style hands are loaded up with Super-LumiNova (green on the non-covered variant, and dull cream on the dark model) and are entirely clear, and the dark seconds hand is covert with a lume sharpened stone tip clearing the furthest track. Like the previously mentioned Khaki Field Mechanical 38mm line, this is a period just piece without a date window.
The sapphire show caseback shows Hamilton’s restrictive H-10 automatic type with a sizeable 80-hour power hold (the Khaki Mechanicals have 80-hour hand-wound partners). In light of the ETA C07.111, the development highlights 25 gems, beats at 21,600vph (3Hz) with a 80-hour power hold. The rotor has been tweaked with Hamilton’s “H” cut out between the openworked segments, while the rest of the type is undecorated (available cost obliges).
The 20mm tie is calf cowhide with a delicate touch finish and titanium H-molded pin clasp. The non-covered rendition has a green/earthy colored lash with lighter sewing to coordinate the hands/records and the dark PVD model comes on a tan-hued tie with cream sewing.
The non-covered Hamilton Khaki Field Titanium Automatic (ref. H70545550) retails for EUR 850 and the dark PVD model (ref. H70665533) is evaluated at EUR 895. The two variations are currently accessible from Hamilton’s webshops and at retailers. More subtleties and orders for the non-covered model here and for the PVD-covered model here .
