For our readers who have been faithfully following us along our journey to uncover awesome stuff, we are changing things up a bit. You’ve probably seen us feature high-end wristwatches for a while now. The thing is, most of these wallet-breaking pieces are Swiss in origin, which is absolutely top-tier. Therefore, the team thinks it’s time to shine the spotlight on other exceptional brands. What we have here is two American companies joining hands in crafting the Khaki Pilot.
The brands behind this admirable endeavour are Hamilton and Schott NYC. Both are reputable labels specializing in premium-grade watches and top-notch clothing products respectively. Furthermore, these two share a remarkable history supplying their wares to pilots during World War II. Lauded by the military for the quality and dependability of their wares, we know that this latest collaboration deserves your recognition.
The military vibe is clear just by looking at the choice of colours the timekeeper is flaunting. Moreover, it draws inspiration from aviation, which is evident through the outstanding design. This is a 46 mm wristwatch that sports a khaki green dial with the date window close to the centre. This alongside the addition of Super-LumiNova coatings on the indices, hands, text, and numbers, gives owners superior visibility in low-light conditions.
Hamilton arms the Khaki Pilot with an H-30 automatic movement that boasts an 80-hour power reserve. Meanwhile, Schott NYC supplies the full aniline, top-grain, lightweight steer hide leather for the wristbands each the 1,892 exclusive timepieces. These are apparently the same type of material the company is using for their products. Finally, each of these come with a hand-crafted leather case that oozes with style.Get it here
