Two New Hamilton Khaki Field Watches In Full Titanium

Lightweight and robust, the titanium Khaki Field Automatic gets a matching titanium bracelet.

Hamilton is almost synonymous with tool watches, although they do far more than just that. Designated for land-locked, aquatic or aeronautical activities, there’s a Khaki sub-collection for pretty much all situations imaginable. One of the most popular collections is the Khaki Field range, a no-frills military-inspired watch in a wide variety of styles and materials. The current Khaki Field collection is home to no less than 55 different models, with either hand-wound or automatic movements and in steel, titanium or bronze cases. The lightweight titanium version of the Khaki Field made its debut a couple of years ago, fitted with leather or textile NATO-style straps. Well, that changes right now, as Hamilton introduces four new references of the Khaki Field Titanium, with new dial colours and a matching titanium bracelet.

The case of the new time-only Khaki Field in titanium comes in two sizes, as the stainless steel Khaki Field does too. You have a choice of 38mm versus 42mm, with a height of 11.68mm for the smaller one and 11.45mm for the bigger one. Both sizes also come in two types of finishing; bare titanium, or black PVD-coated titanium. While this doesn’t necessarily change the specifications of the watch, it does change the look quite drastically. The fully brushed case gets a sapphire crystal on both the front and reverse side, and a sturdy knurled crown on the right-hand side.

The classic military style of the Khaki Field dial has been retained with these new additions with dials in stylish blue or stealthy black, depending on the exterior. It still has the double-hour scale, with the larger Arabic numerals (1 through 12) on the recessed section and the smaller numerals (13 through 24) on the inside and printed in white. The blackened hands, as well as the large numerals, are finished with Super-LumiNova. On the outer edge is a white printed minute track with small dots of lume at every 5-minute interval. Overall, it remains a very legible design in the style of military watches.

Hiding in plain sight, all four new references rely on the Calibre H-10, Hamilton’s version of Swatch Group’s widespread Powermatic 80 movement. As you’re probably well aware by now, this has a frequency of 21,600vph and a stronger mainspring to beef up the power reserve to 80 hours. It also comes with a Nivachron hairspring to combat magnetic forces. The rotor is signed with the brand’s name, a common trait for this movement regardless of where it is used with the group (although rotor designs may vary).

To match the titanium case, both editions of the new Hamilton Khaki Field in titanium get a titanium three-link bracelet with a folding clasp. Brushed titanium for one, black PVD-coated titanium for the other. And as always, neither will really break your bank as the prices remain quite sensible at EUR 1,195 for titanium and blue, or EUR 1,295 for the stealthy one in 38mm, which jumps to EUR 1,245 or EUR 1,345 in the 42mm size respectively.

  1. Are there any retail outlets that sell hamilton in london

  2. It needs no AR coating. Go look at one. Or are you afraid you might like it. Go. The lume is much! Much better than most so-called Horologists reviews. Honestly. To Richard who cries, still no AR coating? Here’s a bucket for your tears.,🪣

  3. So they fixed the lop sided 15hr mark by remove the date window but filed to put a screw down crown and have no AR coating on the sapphire , I rather not look into my reflection when trying to tell the time

  4. I love “Joe D Twyman’s” passion and over-the-top response.
