Film mature performance. The Hamilton brand has around 450 film appearances in Hollywood films-since 1951, and according to its own figures. So Robert Downey Jr. wore a Hamilton Khaki Field Titanium in “The Avengers”, Will Smith wore several times a Ventura in “Men in Black” and also Jessica Alba (“fantastic four”), John Travolta (“the General’s daughter”) “, Samuel L. Jackson (“SWAT”) and Bruce Willis
(“die hard 4.0″) had a Hamilton on the arm.” Your here is a really impressive overview.
And now comes to an another film appearance-in Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day sequel has one among other actor Liam Hemsworth as fighter pilot Jake Morrison Hamilton Khaki X-wind in the fight against the aliens. And looks like the good piece.
A closer look: It’s the khaki X-wind auto Chrono: 44 millimeters in diameter, scratch-resistant Sapphire Crystal, screw-down Crown and with strong calf leather strap. The special is a drift angle Calculator (see display on the “12”), which was to allow the calculation of a course correction in lateral jacks on this automatic watch with chronograph. Clearly, so is a pilot or pilot’s watch. The MSRP is1.345,00 Euro. Somewhat cheaper there the clock new & second-hand on ebay (affiliate link).
Drift angle calculator, that is the date on the left and the clock is interesting at this clock in addition to the three crowns (one on the left, two right) and two pushers (both links). Would really be interested in the workings of this watch. Maybe you see it in the film.
The X-wind in the name by the way stands for “Cross Wind” the English name of crosswind.
Last but not least: In “Independence Day 2” there to see some more Hamilton watches-here the overview including movie trailers.
