The new Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic Chronograph connects the deep heritage of the original soldier’s watch with the bold design and sporty functionality of a modern chronograph. This is an action-ready field watch made for all of life’s adventures.
Hamilton Khaki Field watches continue the story of the countless timepieces we produced for military use during the 20th century, and in particular, those we provided for U.S. soldiers during World War II. Receiving five U.S. Army-Navy ‘E’ awards for excellence in military manufacturing, these wartime watches continue to inspire authentic favorites like the Khaki Field Mechanical.
The newest interpretation of the Khaki Field Automatic Chronograph translates that celebrated military aesthetic to the format of a modern chronograph. Powerful and precise, it carries the indelible stamp of its fighting heritage. Its streamlined 44mm case shape, nickeled hands with old radium Super-LumiNova® and dial design with characteristic military minuterie bear the clear influence of our classic soldiering watches.
In contrast, the three-dimensional form – moulded from solid Super-LumiNova® – of the numerals and hour markers is a noticeable contemporary innovation. Standing 0.35mm tall, they guarantee incredible legibility day and night.
The functions of our powerful H-21caliber are clearly delineated by the Khaki Field Automatic Chronograph’s three sub dials and red-tipped seconds hand. With stopwatch timing for up to 12 hours, you can easily track the hours, minutes and seconds of your next adventure. Inside, our automatic chronograph movement serves as a strong beating heart with an extended 60-hour power reserve.
The Khaki Field Automatic Chronograph’s authentic military look is translated to the strap as well with a ‘bund’ style nubuck leather in khaki green. Historically worn by soldiers to protect the wrist from extreme heat, the two-piece strap ensures a comfortable and secure fit.
