New to Hamilton‘s line of brilliant watches is the Khaki Pilot Pioneer Mechanical, a timepiece inspired greatly by the W10, a model designed in the ’70s for the British military.

Gone to exceptional lengths to retain the original construction and aesthetic of the watch, Hamilton has rebuilt it in a tonneau-shaped 36mm stainless steel case, housing a textured black dial with white numerals, a white printed railroad chapter ring, and beige indices. At the 12 o’clock position is a beige luminescent triangle instead of the regular numbers, true to the classic design. The dial is then graced with a sword-shaped hour hand and a pencil-shaped minute hand, both with beige lume –  just like the W10. Of course, the needle-shaped second hand is also accurate to the original design. The only difference between this dial and its predecessor are the modern logos used in place of the old ones.

With a mineral crystal, solid screwed-on caseback and a push-in crown, the timepiece is water-resistant up to 100 meters. Housed in the case is a caliber H-50 ETA-based manually wound movement capable of 80-hours of power reserve. The watch will come in two strap variations: a grey nylon Nato strap, or a leather Nato strap.

For those interested, the W10-inspired Khaki Pilot Pioneer Mechanical will be available soon over at Hamilton’s online store and retail shops, going for $845 USD for the nylon strap version and $895 USD for the leather strap version. Head over to learn more now.

Elsewhere in watches, OMEGA has introduced a Seamaster Aqua Terra Ultra Light weighing only 55 grams.
