The Khaki Field collection from Hamilton was originally created when the watchmaker supplied watches to the US Army during World War II. Watches were actually considered vital military equipment, since radio time signals could be intercepted and falsified by the enemy.
The US-based brand has been around since 1892. Military-inspired colors and textures unite with innovation in this watch. The exclusive H-10 movement powers the Khaki Field Auto 42mm. This caliber has 80 hours of power reserve to meet the toughest performance expectations.
Hamilton has an aviation heritage dating back to 1919. That was the year in which a Hamilton aeronautical watch accompanied the very first American airmail postal service between Washington and New York. This in-flight activity continued to strengthen and grow and by the 1930s Hamilton was the official watch of the commercial airlines, TWA, Eastern, United and Northwest. A major highlight of the era was the selection of Hamilton as timekeeper for the United Air Lines inauguration of the first coast-to-coast service - a 15-hour, 20-minute trip between New York and San Francisco.
