Hemel Night Ops Watch Collection – HM24 Night Ops and HM2 Night Ops Models

Introduced early this year, the Night Ops family from the US watch brand Hemel now adds two more models. The HM (Hemel Military) Series now joins the HF (Hemel Flight) and the HD (Hemel Dive) Series in this exclusive and covertly styled grouping. The two new field watches employ the 9039 movement, a true no date premium automatic caliber which moves at 28.8 beats per hour.

This caliber which hacks and hand winds is housed in a fluidly curved case and held in place with a brass retaining ring. C3 lume and a curved sapphire lens with an anti-reflective coating top off the dial.

The HM1, simply called the Hemel 24, is based on the military field watches of the late 60s and early 70s with their 24 hour delineated dials. The HM2, or the Hemel Track, recalls the field watches of the mid twentieth century and around the time of the second World War with its simply appointed “railroad track” chapter ring.

Stylish accents like the whisper of a coin edge, the pop of orange in the second hand and the minutely signed buckle ring bring the HM Series to a place of refinement while maintaining more rugged appointments like the 100 meters of water resistance.

The screw down crown is inspired by the treaded wheel tracks of an armored car. With this new iteration of these HM best sellers, the black IP coating further elevates the bead blasted watch from a playing field of so much sameness.

The Night Ops HFT20 and Hydrodurance models are also exactly the same as their original models save for the black coating. The entire Night Ops lineup is available now for immediate delivery. No preorder necessary.
