Hamilton Independence Day: Resurgence
The second chapter by Roland Emmerich features four Hamilton Timepieces.
Hamilton Watches return to the big screen this summer in 20th Century Fox’s new blockbuster, Independence Day: Resurgence, twenty years after the first movie Independence Day.
After 'Independence Day' redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens' advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.
The film is directed by Roland Emmerich, who directed the first chapter, and stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, Travis Trope, William Fichtner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Judd Hirsch, Jessie Usher, Sela Ward, Brent Spiner, Vivica A. Fox, and Angelababy
Pilot Jake Morrison, played by Liam Hemsworth, wears a robust Khaki X-Wind automatic chronograph. Built for adventure and supporting Hamilton's military heritage, this powerful timepiece is perfectly adapted for all defense missions. The pushers on the 44 millimeter stainless steel case are uniquely built to form an X, while the brown calf leather strap ads a stylish vintage touch. Its automatic movement powers chronograph and day-date functions, as well as a drift-angle calculator created specifically for pilots so they can measure crosswinds.
The action-packed Independence Day: Resurgence also stars some other Hamilton timepieces. Jeff Goldblum wears an elegant Jazzmaster automatic with GMT function to keep track of time in the different cities during the alien invasion. A Thinomatic can be seen on the wrist of Bill Pullman, and James A. Woods will be wearing a Khaki Pilot Automatic Chronograph, selected for their timekeeping precision and military-inspired design.
Hamilton’s presence in Independence Day: Resurgence is the latest in over 450 movie placements for Hamilton. The first collaboration was 65 years ago when the brand’s watches first appeared in The Frogmen.
Hamilton has also created the Hamilton Behind The Camera Awards, held in both Los Angeles and Shanghai. The awards pay tribute to the brilliant off-screen talents that contribute to the quality of a motion picture and to the lasting impression it makes on its audience.
Independence Day: Resurgence will be released globally in cinemas starting June 22nd.
