The Khaki Field Mechanical is notable as a new classic among field watches — it’s also Hamilton’s best-selling watch, and a fantastic value. Recognizing consumer enthusiasm and the model’s dedicated following, Hamilton is adding various new dial colors and strap options, as well as an “earth-colored” PVD coating for the matte-finished steel case. The underlying Khaki Field is essentially unchanged — it’s reliable and affordable as ever, with a sapphire crystal and hand-winding — but a new H-50 movement gives the wearer a whopping 80 hours of power reserve on a full wind, nearly double that of the previous Field Mechanicals.

All versions will be available from May, but the white dial will be available through Topper Jewelers only for the first three months.
