The Movie Brand / Aviation Heritage

For over six decades Hamilton’s distinctive watches have caught the attention of the world’s leading screen stylists.

Moviemaking is similar to watchmaking: In order to inspire the audience, a meticulous attention to technical and styling detail is crucial. The brand is constantly working closely with the world’s leading directors, costume designers, prop masters and screenwriters to find watches that have their own plot.

Hamilton has an aviation heritage dating back to 1919.

The aviation heritage of the brand dates back to 1919, when the pilots of the first US airmail service between Washington and New York wore Hamilton watches. By the 1930s Hamilton was the official timekeeper of choice for commercial airlines in the USA.
