The Khaki Pilot Day Date Auto is a tribute to aviation military pedigree, precisely like those Type-B face and spec watch produced specifically for use by navigators during the 40s and 50s, while coincidently their field watch dates back even earlier during World War 2 in the 1940s. This particular version sets forth where the design of a perfect combination of a vintage piece with modern technology.

Moving onto its Type B pilot-spec dial, it is done and conformed to look precisely like the German Beobachtungs-Uhren (observation watch)- the inclusion of the iconic double-digit Arabic numerals, vintage caramel luminous markers, and bold sword-shaped hands. With all these aspects, Hamilton has kept them in a way, 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, the vintage colored Type- B that only bears the "Hamilton" and "Khaki Automatic" titles on the dial. There is both day and date display done nicely at the top, resulting in the legibility of the field watch while keeping things balanced symmetrically. Strapping the Khaki Pilot Day Date Auto to the wrist, one can conclude the built for function above all things and built to last like during wartime, while most of us believed only to do from desk-diving to cafe hopping to be our daily activities.
The Khaki Pilot Day Date Automatic Vintage on Leather Ref. H64645531 is powered by its automatic Caliber H-40, which is a tweaked 25-jewel ETA day/date displays with center seconds 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 benefiting a hand-wound movement, with the lower beat-rate reminds one of an old school movement 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.
