The watch: Hamilton X-01 The movie: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) The actor: Keir Dullea
It is not easy to define this movie, a monumental film born from the genius of Stanley Kubrick. Is it an adventure movie? Is it science fiction? Is it a metaphysical reflection? Possibly is it all that and much more. The film looks to a future and a space mission investigating a strange apparition on the Moon’s surface. The watch seen on actor Keir Dullea is a Hamilton. This American watch company has collaborated with Hollywood for years, designing watches that aim to be the perfect fit for the actors and the script. In this case, Hamilton developed a futuristic watch with three independent time zones: HT - Home Time, DPT - Dream Place Time and GMT. It was commemorated in 2007 when Hamilton reproduced a Limited Edition of 2001 units.
