    BaselWorld 2018 Preview: Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical 38mm

    Introducing the new Khaki Field Mechanical 38mm

    Inspired by the military, built to last. The latest models from Hamilton’s Khaki Field collection are essential kit for life’s adventurers. One of the most widely produced and worn watches in the Hamilton collection, the Khaki Field was the original soldier’s watch.

    Rugged, uncompromising and functional, it was designed to meet the needs of military personnel but also became a firm favorite among Hamilton fans and collectors
    .
    38mm matt stainless steel case, three hand display, dark dial with light, luminescent numerals, indexes showing hours and minutes, durable NATO strap: The new Khaki Field Mechanical is a faithful recreation of its original 1940s forebear and it is true to Hamilton’s military heritage.

    There is nothing superfluous in this new watch, the original version of which was known as the ‘hack’ watch for its stop second function when the crown is released. Now a standard feature on all mechanical watches, it was a perfect way for the military to synchronize their watches.

    There are two new versions to choose from: Matt black dial with white luminescent numerals and indexes in a matt steel sandblasted case and a NATO khaki colored strap with dark brown leather loops; or brown matt dial with sand-colored Super-LumiNova® hands, numerals and indexes with a sand-colored NATO strap and dark brown leather loops.

    Robustness thanks to the stainless steel case and lightness from the handwinding movement and NATO strap work together in perfect harmony for a piece of essential kit for life out in the field.

    Going back to our roots has helped Hamilton create an authentic watch for modern life with nothing that’s not absolutely essential. Military style and functionality is in Hamilton’s DNA and we’re proud to celebrate our prestigious history.

    They're ticking off all the vintage boxes here. Presumably it'll have a nice street price too. Very good everyday piece. Figure we'll see this one recommended quite often.

    You can pre-order it on their website. $475 + tax. Beautiful watch. I got one!

    Where would you put the window, if you could put it anywhere you wanted?



    Then ask yourself what that would do to either the standard scale or the interior 24-hour scale.

    It does add just enough contrast to make it interesting.

    Every field watch they make - over a dozen of them - has a date except this one. It's about time they made one for those of us who prefer watches without dates.

    Precisely my friend. My first Hamilton is in the mail. Delighted to not drop $5k on a watch for once.
