Hamilton watches, known for their leading role in the worlds of aviation and cinema as well as their innovative timekeeping technology, return to the big screen this fall in the Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. epic adventure, Interstellar.
Cooper (played by Matthew McConaughey) is equipped with a Hamilton Khaki Pilot Day Date in the film. The Khaki Pilot Day Date features an aviator design perfect for Cooper’s pioneering spirit. Cooper’s daughter Murph wears an exclusive watch developed by Hamilton specifically for her character. This watch is a unique and customized piece, composed of different elements of signature Hamilton watches perfectly suited to her character.
?This ‘starring role’ in Interstellar is the latest in over 400 movie placements for Hamilton. The first came more than 60 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. “Our work with Interstellar exemplifies the ongoing relationship we’ve had with Hollywood for the past six decades and how we’ve collaborated with many talented behind the scenes professionals to help bring their characters to life,” said Sylvain Dolla, CEO of Hamilton International. A similar request for collaboration came from the Interstellar production team, to outfit the characters Cooper and Murph.
Because of its continued involvement with Hollywood, Hamilton recognizes the wide spectrum of work that leads to the red carpet, the brand created the annual Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards. Held each year in both Los Angeles and Shanghai, the awards pay tribute to the brilliant off-screen talent that contributes to the quality of a motion picture and to the lasting impression it makes on its audience.

Hamilton was founded in 1892 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA and today its watches combine the American spirit with the unrivalled precision of the latest Swiss movements and technologies. Since 1951 the brand’s distinctive watches have caught the attention of the world’s leading screen stylists. Their eye-catching shapes, modern materials and unique designs have earned them appearances in more than 400 films, including Hollywood blockbusters as well as European, Chinese and Russian productions. Throughout the years, Hamilton has created a tradition of integrating its signature styles with epic storylines – from Stanley Kubrick’s futuristic 2001: A Space Odyssey to sci-fi stand-outs I Am Legend and the fan-favourite Men in Black trilogy. In 2013 the brand reclaimed its role in the Die Hard series, when it appeared on the wrists of the stars in the latest instalment, A Good Day to Die Hard.
