Independence Day: Resurgence #TimeMatters
Time matters as the world unites to save the planet against alien invasion and human destruction. Fighting from the skies is pilot Jake Morrison, played by Liam Hemsworth, and wearing a robust Khaki X-Wind automatic chronograph. Built for adventure and proudly supporting its military heritage, this powerful timepiece is perfectly adapted for all defense missions. The pushers on the 44 millimeter stainless steel case are uniquely built to form an X, while the brown calf leather strap ads a stylish vintage touch. Inside, its automatic movement powers chronograph and day-date functions, as well as a drift-angle calculator created specifically for pilots so they can measure crosswinds. Even when using alien technology, keeping track of time is essential, and the Hamilton Khaki X-Wind will scrupulously answer the need for precision.
Hamilton’s presence in Independence Day: Resurgence is the latest in over 450 movie placements for Hamilton. The first collaboration was 65 years ago when the brand’s watches first appeared in The Frogmen. Since then, Hamilton has worked closely with costume designers and prop masters to supply watches to filmmakers.
Due to its continued involvement with Hollywood, Hamilton recognizes the wide spectrum of opportunities associated to the red carpet. With this in mind, the brand created the Hamilton Behind The Camera Awards, held in both Los Angeles and Shanghai. The awards pay tribute to the brilliant off-screen talents that contribute to the quality of a motion picture and to the lasting impression it makes on its audience.
