Dive into summer with seafarer-approved timepieces
Summer brings different things to different people: An opportunity to snorkel along tropical reefs, lounge by the pool or perhaps to enjoy the city. Whatever summer brings, choosing a watch for the season should involve finding one designed to look great in any environment. The timepieces of the Khaki Navy Collection are a great solution – as comfortable lounging on a rooftop patio as they are taking a dip in the ocean.
The Khaki Navy Scuba Auto features a ceramic bevel and precise engraving to protect it from seawater and sand, with an extra-legible dial and enhanced water resistance up to 30 bar (300 meters) depending on the model. Secured with a classic stainless steel bracelet, a rugged textile NATO or rubber watchstrap, they’re always ready for the next adventure.
For another water-friendly option that combines old-school appeal with the newest watchmaking technology, the Khaki Navy Frogman Auto is a model that dates back to the days of the U.S. Navy’s ‘Frogman’ teams. Featured in the 1951 movie “The Frogmen,” this beach watch has been updated over the years but remains a favorite of those who love to be in, on or under the water, thanks to its excellent waterproofing and underwater luminescence.
Bold watches that love the outdoors
When an opportunity presents itself to explore the great outdoors, a durable timepiece that looks great in any setting is key. Whether it’s hiking a mountain trail, traveling to exotic locales or just enjoying a picnic with family, a resilient watch is a reliable companion. The Khaki Field Collection originally designed for the military, offers just the right balance between style and durability to round out your snazzy summer look.
The Khaki Field Mechanical Bronze is a hand-wound model upgraded with a bronze case and titanium case back. The bronze material weathers when exposed to the elements, creating a truly unique patina over time. This is literally a watch designed to record a story on your wrist.
If indulging in summer nightlife is more of a priority, the jet-black Khaki Field King model offers an automatic movement with an 80-hour power reserve. Sturdy and versatile, it’s another nod to Hamilton’s military past.
Watches to go with any summer outfit
Of course, a great summer watch is about more than just surviving the elements – it should also be a fun, good-looking timepiece that allows you to put your best arm forward. Women’s and men’s summer watches from Hamilton offer plenty of choice for warmer months. For ladies, one of the pearly-white Ventura watches might be just the thing to go with a tan. If a sailboat outing is in the cards, why not look into the nautical blue and silver styling options of the Jazzmaster Collection Alternatively, any stylish warm-weather wardrobe can be enhanced with a chronometer watch from the American Classic line, which features a vintage panda dial in a variety of colors. So, no matter what sunny adventures are in store, Hamilton’s summer watches strike a perfect balance between durability and style.
