Hamilton is an American watch manufacturer and accordingly its watch models always carry English names. The word Aviation means aviation, reminding us that a Hamilton Khaki Aviation watch is a robust watch specially designed for pilots. Most of the models from this noble collection have special functions especially designed for aviation, such as a function for cross wind calculation or the possibility to display two different time zones. This allows you to keep track of the time at both your departure and destination airports - or to check the time at home whenever you want to call your family from a faraway country.
Not in khaki
The word khaki in the name of the Hamilton Khaki Aviation collection may surprise many a German viewer after seeing the pictures of the watches, as the watches are by no means all in the colour khaki. But also this is explained by the origin from the English speaking countries. Khaki is a good camouflage color and is therefore often used for uniforms of armies all over the world. So it has become common in English to call the uniforms themselves khakis. The word khaki in Hamilton Khaki Aviation therefore stands for the military operational tradition of the watches and should remind of their particularly great robustness.
