Buyer's Guide: Hamilton Khaki Field Watches

Affordable watches with a military style: what’s your pick?

The Hamilton Khaki Pilot Aviation is one of two Hamilton models featured in the movie Interstellar. It sports an aviator style with its satin polish giving it a tool-like look. Its bezel and case are designed to drive attention to the dial. The dial is well balanced, with a day display at 12 o’clock and the date window positioned at 6 to avoid obscuring any details.

On the dial of the Hamilton Khaki Field King Auto, 24-hour Arabic numerals can be seen next to the 12-hour time they correspond with, making the watch easier to read. The brushed steel creates a rugged military look and the crown guards help prevent the crown from being damaged. This watch also features a day-date complication, but with the date immediately below the day.

The Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical is the simplest and most understated of the three options. It sports a bead-blasted case, giving the watch a more subtle look, and a basic date complication at the standard 3 o’clock position. It comes on a military green canvas strap that matches the green dial.
