LOOKING BACK AT THE HAMILTON KHAKI

Post by koimaster » July 5th 2021, 10:18pm

Considering Hamilton’s long history and prominent position among American watch brands, it could very well be thought of as the most successful among them. And one of its most popular sub-brands would be the Khaki, which comes as the Khaki Field, Navy, and Aviation today.

Now, the Khaki comes in many forms but is generally known as a military watch, and Hamiltons have been present in several major conflicts. Founded in 1892, Hamilton watches were supplied to the US military during WWI and after the war continued their focus on wristwatches over pocket watches. Originally Hamilton supplied railroad watches to soldiers under the command of General Pershing, these were pocket watches converted to wristwatches for their use. For this, the US military gave the company the Army-Navy ‘E’ Awards for the quality of their products.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
