Hamilton Khaki Field Murph Review

The Hamilton Khaki Field Murph is a limited edition timepiece that combines the rugged functionality of the Khaki Field collection with a subtle tribute to the sci-fi film “Interstellar”.

We’re going to take a closer look at the Khaki Field Murph 38mm Ref. H70405730 and scrutinizing the watch’s features and what can you expect from this iconic model. Let’s dive in.

The Cinematic Connection

What sets the Khaki Field Murph apart is its connection to the film “Interstellar.” In the movie, the timepiece makes a significant role in the narrative, and Hamilton has masterfully captured this essence in its design. 

While the watch doesn’t incorporate any overt film references, the engravings on the case back serve as an intimate homage to the cinematic experience.

Wearing the Khaki Field Murph allows fans to carry a piece of the “Interstellar” universe with them, sparking conversations and evoking fond memories of the film’s emotional moments. 

This unique connection makes the watch a sought-after collector’s item for movie enthusiasts and Hamilton fans alike.

Design and Construction

The Khaki Field Murph boasts a sturdy and masculine design that resonates with its military heritage. Its stainless steel case measures a versatile 38mm in diameter, making it suitable for various wrist sizes.

Further, the case is fully brushed and polished to give a perfect finish. Coming in a sporty size, the watch bears a water resistance of up to 100m, giving optimal protection for everyday companions. 

Moving on to the black dial, complemented by white Arabic numeral hour markers, it offers excellent legibility, even in low-light conditions with Super-LumiNova finished hands. 

The signature red seconds hand adds a pop of color, while the triangular indexes at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock offer a subtle nod to the original Hamilton military watches.

Protecting the dial is a domed sapphire crystal accentuating the thick polished bezel. The result is excellent legibility to tell the time under different lighting conditions. 

To make the cinematic connection further enhanced, Hamilton creates an interesting yet genius addition to the design. The seconds hand’s SuperLuminova plots are applied with tiny lines and dots that spell out “Eureka” in Morse code. 

That’s no other than to depict the use of Morse code during communication between Murph and her father. That makes an interesting gimmick to further relate the watch to the movie and gives a delightful surprise for fans of the film.

The sapphire crystal covering the dial is scratch-resistant, guaranteeing enduring clarity for years to come. With a water resistance of up to 100 meters, the Khaki Field Murph can withstand occasional splashes and short water exposure, although it’s not recommended for swimming or diving.
