The watch: Hamil­ton X-01 The movie: 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) The ac­tor: Keir Dul­lea

Plaza Watch International - - Time At The Movies -

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.
