Two Hamilton Watches To Appear In Latest Indiana Jones Film

Archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones returns to screens on June 30 with the announced final installment in the hugely successful Indian Jones series, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.

Harrison Ford as Indy drew rave reviews for his latest role as the swashbuckling hero. In this film he continues to wear a brown fedora, tan safari style shirt, brown leather bomber jacket, khaki pants, brown leather belt with brass buckle, brown leather boots and a whip. His brand outfit includes the Hamilton Boulton watch.

The Swiss watch brand with American roots worked with Ben Wilkinson of the film’s props team to ensure the watches would be timely with the costumes designed by Joanna Johnston.

Introduced in 1941, the Boulton was one of Hamilton’s most popular watches of that storied decade. It was reintroduced in the 1980s and adapted to today’s requirements. The cushion-shaped clock with Art Deco design details is slightly larger in proportion than the original. It features a yellow gold PVD coated stainless steel case measuring 27mm x 31.6mm and 7.8mm thick. The lug width is 18 mm and 41.5 mm from lug to lug. The brown alligator-finish leather strap has also been reshaped.

Mineral crystal glass reveals a white dial with small seconds, Arabic hour markers and brass hands. The watch is powered by a quartz movement.

Part of Hamilton’s American Classic Collection, the Boulton accompanies the Professor, timing his escape as he embarks on new adventures.

Indy’s old friend Renaldo, played by Antonio Banderas, wears a custom-made Hamilton Khaki Navy Scuba. Again, it’s an appropriate choice for the boat captain, who seems to appear at just the right time to provide Indy with the assistance he needs to complete his missions.

The 40mm stainless steel watch features a black dial with nickel-plated hour, minute and second hands coated with Super-LumiNova. It is powered by the H-10 automatic movement with a power reserve of 80 hours. It is rounded off by a black rubber strap. As a nautical watch, it is water-resistant to 100 meters.

In 1944, while fighting Nazi Jürgen Voller, Indy helped his colleague Basil Shaw obtain a mysterious dial called Antikythera that could change the course of history. 25 years later, Jones is concerned that the US government has recruited former Nazis to help defeat the Soviet Union in space. He is also bitter because his wife Marion is divorcing him and he is about to retire from his teaching post. His goddaughter, Basil’s daughter Helena Shaw, played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, joins him on his journey for the Dial. They must fight Voller, who has even more nefarious uses for it.
