Available to Buy: Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical Bronze

Hamilton deploys a new bronze Khaki Field Mechanical 38mm into action.

Everyone loves a watch that fills a purpose. Dive watches made to conquer depths that we will never venture down to. Chronographs, intended to time laps we will never race. Even dress watches, paired with tuxedos we rarely wear. We find intense joy in the specialized and the niche. That's all well and good, but there’s an even greater joy to be found in the quotidian — a comfortable, reliable ritual that makes up so much of our daily, ordinary life. The ordinary is calming and has a distinct charm. It’s also a life that calls for a particular sort of watch — an everyday companion, proven and reliable.

This is exactly where the genre of watch known as the field watch fits. Hard-wearing, robust and functional — the field watch typically doesn’t boast the bells and whistles of more specialized sports watches, but it doesn’t need them. Field watches have been around in one form or another for over a century, and they have proven themselves in some of the harshest environments imaginable. While many brands have created their own take on a field watch, one name stands above them all, and that is Hamilton. Before we learn about the brand’s latest Khaki Field Mechanical 38mm, let’s find out where the field watch was born.
