By definition, a “field watch” is meant to be durable and rugged. After all, it’s in the name itself—a “field” watch is meant for the field. But if you want a field watch that a…well, that a field watch would wear, then you’re looking for the Hamilton Field Watch.

Based on the classic model that Hamilton made for the American military, the new Khaki Field Mechanical Bronze lives up to everything that is “field watch.” It’s tough, easily read, and affordable. The dial features dart indices and lume-filled hands so that it stays legible despite the conditions. Even the 24-hour scale and the minute scale are easy to read.

The bronze case cuts down on reflection, so you won’t give away your position and you’ll be able to see it in bright situations. Plus, the bronze patinas over time, so it becomes uniquely yours. The watch is also a hand-wound version, making it more reliable because you don’t have to worry about the battery running out. And if you’re the type to periodically forget to wind your watch each morning, no worries with the Hamilton Field Watch, it has an 80 hour power reserve.

Making the watch even more durable, the field watch comes with a titanium back. And what about upgrading the style? Well, the soft brown leather NATO strap with a titanium pin buckle dresses up this watch quite a bit. The 38mm case with its flat, smooth bezel, wide-set lugs, and large pillbox crown finish off the looks of this reliable watch.

Hamilton’s Khaki Field Mechanical watches can be had for under $600, but the Bronze version understandably drives up that price point a bit, but not terribly so. The Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical Bronze comes in at $825. This is the kind of watch that you’ll be wearing throughout all your adventures and then passing it on to the next generation.
