The handwound military mash-up feels like the natural watch for a bronze case.

Hamilton has dropped a bronze version of its Khaki Field Mechanical and it instantly feels like it’s always been around.

Hamilton’s modern 38mm Khaki Field Mechanical is a throwback to the watches it produced for Allied Forces during WW2 and beyond; a modern mash-up of design cues that feels authentically military and inherently American. The bold, simple lines of the case and dependable handwound movement also make it a perfect candidate for everyday wear.

So bronze, a material that is used in watchmaking today to develop a unique patina, would seem to be the natural material to encase a historically-inclined watch. Hamilton calls the bronze alloy it uses “ultra-resistant and robust” but also issues a point-of-sale disclaimer regarding the patina that will develop.

Here, a black dial with luminous markings offer strong legibility, while “fauxtina” lume adds to the vintage aesthetic. A titanium caseback prevents any bronze-on-skin contact and an H-50 movement offers an 80-hour power reserve.

The Khaki Field Mechanical Bronze is available now via Hamilton, priced £720 GBP ($992 USD).
