|Original MIL-W-46374 specifications|
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.
