Powering the new Khaki Field Mechanical line is Hamilton’s H-50 caliber, a hand-cranker with a whopping 80-hour power reserve. This movement first made its Khaki Field Mechanical debut in a limited edition watch produced for the website, Uncrate, but it now comes standard across all three models.
Intra-Matic Auto Chrono with a Blue Dial
Last year, Hamilton unveiled the new (an improved) Intra-Matic Auto Chrono, which featured a smaller 40-millimeter case (the first iteration, the Intra-Matic 68 Chrono, had a noticeably larger 42-millimeter case and was a limited release). The watch, which pulls inspiration from some of Hamilton’s most beloved vintage references, was a huge hit.
Now, Hamilton is bringing out a version with a blue dial and off-white counters. This twist on the reverse panda is incredibly good looking, with Hamilton using just the right hue of blue and pairing it with creamy accents that add the correct amount of warmth to the dial.
Powering the watch is Hamilton’s H-31 automatic chronograph movement, which is based on the Valjoux 7753. The H-31 features 27 jewels, a chronograph function, hacking seconds, hand winding, a date complication, an upped power reserve of 60 hours, and a frequency of 28,800 bph. The date is not advanced via the crown here. Instead, there’s a quick-set pusher at 10 o’clock for changing the date.
We’ll be previewing these watches real soon, so stay tuned to Worn & Wound for some in-the-metal photos . Pricing is not yet finalized, but I’ll update this space as soon as it is.
