The Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic Chronograph

Its dial uses a matte black colour and holds two recessed sub-dials at the 6 and 12 clock positions. Also implies 30 minute and 12 hour counter separately. The “Hamilton automatic” word is designed at the 3 o’clock position. At the opposite site (9 o’clock pose) has a tiny second’s hand which running around the 4 points white indicators.

Five white 3D vertex and LumiNova numerals line on each side of the dial. Every hour markers are added with an extra 3D lume triangle nearby, on the hands you can find the same aged-radium lume appearance. The markers 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock pose of the minute counter, are slightly longer and slender than the rest; it is subtle but is important.
