Not Forgetting that the Khaki Field is also a proper tribute to its military pedigree, precisely like their MIL-W-46374 spec watch produced specifically for use by navigators in the U.S. Air Force during the 60s and 70s, while their field watch dates back even earlier during World War 2 in the 1940s. This particular version sets forth where it is designed to be the perfect combination of a vintage piece with modern technology. Measuring wittily at 42mm wide and 11mm in height, a combination of both brushed and polished stainless steel throughout the case mimics the typical sporty yet with beautiful contrast.

Moving onto its military-spec dial, it is done contemporarily yet still conformed to look like the MIL-W-46374, while let us described it like how Eminem rhymes his selective words with his instrumental bars- uncluttered, vintage, utilitarian, soldier-ly, and versatile. The dial took the ode-to-the-past aesthetic, like, for instance, only bears the “Hamilton” and “Khaki Automatic” titles on the dial, luminous cathedral hands, and all of them done with vintage tone on black background for legibilty with nostalgia. Notably, there is no date display done at the 3 o’clock position, resulting in a symmetrical dial for the field watch while keeping things balanced overall.
What sets this model to be atypical would be the particular detail that references the movie. Conceived as a subtle yet genius addition, the seconds hand’s SuperLuminova plots are applied tiny lines and dots that spell out “Eureka” in Morse code. Therefore, strapping the Khaki Field Murph to the wrist, one can conclude the built for function above all things and built to last like during wartime, while draws a little whimsical charm for most of us, who believed only to do from desk-diving to cafe hopping to be our daily activities.

The Khaki Field Murph is powered by its Caliber H-10 which is a tweaked 25-jewel ETA C07.611 automatic movement. The main tweak has the power reserve pumped up to 80 hours while having the frequency of the balance slowed from 4Hz to 3Hz, or from 28,800 beats per hour to 21,600bph. Further, the mainspring got lengthened due to the reduction of the barrel arbor’s core. This allows a longer power reserve enhancing an automatic movement, with the lower beat-rate reminds one of an old school hand cranker found on vintage military watches. With all this said, Hamilton truly is the few that can produce such movement upgrade on a large scale and further being well priced. Hamilton paired the Khaki Field Automatic Black 38 on Brown Leather Ref. H70455533 with a 20mm sturdy burgundy brown leather strap that is suitable for all occasions and conditions.
TheHamilton Khaki Field Murph Ref. H70605731 is a captivating reissue in terms of its back-to-those-days military aesthetics and dimensions yet interlinked with a spectacular movie backstory. That said, its looks are so period-correct that this particular model features a throwback of their military timepiece with the practicality of both automatic winding sans a date display. Anyone looking for a sporty evergreen field-watch vibe with its impeccable build quality and upgraded movement, for the money, Hamilton made the Swiss-made Khaki Field unrivaled in its price segment and attractive for all tiers of watch-lovers.
