This Black-On-Black Hamilton Field Watch Is As Distinctive As It Is Understated

Between its robust build quality, respected brand heritage, and diverse design selection, Hamilton’s Khaki Field collection has long served as one of the best value propositions in the watch industry. However, because of the timepiece’s obvious military influences, it’s traditionally been done up in more subdued hues like brown and olive drab. At least until now.

As a follow-up to their previous project in 2009, Hamilton and Japanese fashion label N.Hoolywood have joined forces for a 300-piece Khaki Field Auto collab. Inspired by military exchange service (PX) stores, it’s bedecked in a blacked-out colorway with a PVD-coated 40mm stainless steel case and some ghosted Arabic hour markers. However, to maintain the watch’s legibility, Obana has given it a set of brilliant white SuperLumiNova hands as well as a matching chapter ring and an inner 24-hour track. Set off by a NATO strap with its own black-on-black hardware, the result is a watch that’s as distinctive as it is understated. As with Hamilton’s other Khaki Field Autos, it’s powered by an H-10 movement beneath a sapphire crystal and display back, offering an 80-hour reserve and 100m of water resistance. Unfortunately, it’s not destined for the States, but you can learn more below.
