Founded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1892, Hamilton has crafted watches that strike a unique balance between authenticity and innovation. Hamilton timepieces synchronized the first railroads, kept time for aviation pioneers, and became trusted companions for U.S. soldiers. Known as the watchmaker of filmmakers, Hamilton watches have graced the screens in over 500 movies and TV shows, with custom designs playing pivotal roles in Hollywood blockbusters. Beyond cinema, Hamilton made history by designing the first branded watch featured in a video game.

With an unwavering commitment to craftsmanship and accuracy, Hamilton introduced the world's first electric watch in 1957 and the first LED digital watch in 1970. As a proud member of the Swatch Group, the global leader in watch manufacturing and distribution, Hamilton’s current collections merge its American spirit with true Swiss precision.

Furthermore, the Khaki Field Mechanical Bronze, a standout since its introduction in 2021, makes a notable return with a captivating new white dial. The use of bronze, inspired by military medals and valued for its robustness and anti-corrosive properties, continues to be a distinctive feature of this beloved collection.

At the core of these remarkable timepieces lies the H-50 movement, a testament to military precision and exclusively developed by Hamilton for their hand-wound watches. With an impressive power reserve of up to 80 hours, this movement ensures your watch will maintain accurate timekeeping for over three days on a full wind, offering unparalleled reliability.

The absence of a winding rotor allows the 38mm case to remain slim and lightweight, enhancing both comfort and versatility. The Khaki Field Mechanical is not merely a watch; it is a reliable companion, a definitive reference in the realm of field watches, prepared to accompany you on any journey.
