Hamilton Khaki Navy Frogman Automatic Blue Dial Silver Steel Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch H77705145 RRP £995
The original Hamilton Frogman was created for U.S. Naval ‘Frogman’ teams and featured in the 1951 smash-hit movie ‘The frogmen’. Almost 70 years have passed since then and watchmaking technology has come a long way. What hasn’t changed are the vital features that made the watch as big a hit as the movie.
The case is made from high-grade stainless steel whilst measuring a diameter of 42mm. On top of the case is a marine blue bezel which can be wound in one direction to help set a dive timer. The watch has a water resistance of 300 metres, meaning it can be used for diving to depths. This is achieved through the crown having both a raised guard and lock function seen at three o’clock. The arm/cap combo is tightly built and the big cap makes it a clinch to open and close. Unscrew the cap, swing it up and away and the crown is accessible. Furthermore, the glass is made from sapphire crystal which further reinforces this pieces class and durability.
The bracelet is also made from high-grade stainless steel. For those Hamilton fans the bracelet reference is H605.776.105. The bracelet has an Oyster style which is inspired from the iconic Rolex Oyster model. The bracelet is split into three links with a width of 22mm, of which can be comfortably fastened using a folding clasp.
The Dial & Functions:
The dial compromises of the same marine blue seen on the bezel whilst being complemented by white indexes and hands. Both the hands and indexes are coated in a luminous material allowing for easy visibility at night or at the depths of the ocean. The ever present Hamilton logo can be seen just underneath the 12 o’clock index alongside an easy to read date window at 4 o’clock. The hands are powered by a strong and exclusive H-10 calibre automatic movement. It features a three-hand movement while boasting a superior power reserve of 80 hours, the H-10 appears with intricate contrasting snail and pearled patterns for the American Classic models it drives and streamlined surfaces for the pilots’ watches.

The Brand: Hamilton
Since its foundation in 1892, Hamilton Watch Company have developed a reputation for being a provider of accurate timekeeping. Hence they earned the title of “The Watch of Railroad Accuracy”, as a result of their highly accurate pocket watches.
Hamilton earned a place in history, as they found themselves suppliers of watches to the US military in both world wars. The US Naval Lab invited the Hamilton Watch Company to create an American made chrono. There was a shortage of chronos available to the US Government during the First World War. Therefore they had to rely solely on European made pieces. For this reason Hamilton agreed in 1941 to undertake the work. Moreover, by 1944 Hamilton had produced more than 10,000 Chronometers in aid of the American War effort.
Hamilton have developed a close relationship over the years with Hollywood. Hamilton watches have featured in over 450 films, beginning in 1951 with the Frogman watch. Other films include: Elvis Presley in 1961’s ‘Blue Hawaii’ and in ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. Furthermore, Hamilton have featured in films such as ‘Interstellar’ and ‘The Martian’.
In 2003 Hamilton moved their headquarters to a facility in Switzerland. They are still a global force within the timepiece industry. This is because Hamilton watches offer a combination of American heritage, Swiss internal workings and a touch of Hollywood flair.

Free Strap Adjustment
It's important that your watch fits your wrist comfortably and looks great at the same time.
Leather strap watches tend to fit without a problem for most wearers. However, watches fitted with metal bracelets often need adjusting to get the perfect fit.
This is generally a very simple procedure. We can do this for you, or you can get the watch adjusted locally.
Option 1. Specify your wrist measurement and we will adjust it before being sent
When purchasing a watch which has a metal bracelet with adjustable links, we will gladly adjust the watch bracelet to fit your wrist before sending the watch to you - free of charge!
Simply type your wrist measurement (in inches or centimetres) into the bracelet size section of the checkout and we will ensure the watch bracelet is adjusted accordingly before being sent to you. We will include all the surplus links, with the watch.
How to measure your wrist
You can measure your wrist with a piece of string which you can measure against a ruler:
You should allow about half a centimetre (1/4 inch) of slack to prevent it being too tight on your wrist.
In the event of you needing an extra-long wrist bracelet, which requires an extension to the original watch, we must obtain extra links from the manufacturer, and in this event, we will contact you to inform you of any possible delays or applicable charges.
Watches with bracelets adjusted by WatchNation are still eligible under our refund policy.
Option 2. Buy the watch online from WatchNation and have it adjusted locally
If you wish, you can have it adjusted locally by another jeweller or key cutter. However, you will have to cover the cost of this option yourself.
