THE 2020 NOVELTY LINEUP
THE WATCHES OF HOLLYWOOD
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is back – and so is his watch!
Season 2 of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan hits screens on November 1. The successful Amazon Prime Video action series is back. Starring John Krasinski as the field agent and the Hamilton Khaki Field Auto Chrono as his constant companion in the show.
When Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan hit screens last summer, Hamilton was onboard as the watch of choice for an iconic character. Fast forward one year and we’re proud to be back with Jack for the second season of the Amazon Prime Video series.
Hamilton watches have appeared in more than 500 major movies since 1932 and are always the ideal choice to help complete a character. Our latest outing on the wrist of John Krasinski’s Jack Ryan sees our Khaki Field Auto Chrono in full black return to action. Rugged, robust and ready for anything, it could have been made specially for Jack.
THE HAMILTON VENTURA IS THE OFFICIAL WATCH OF THE MEN IN BLACK
The Men in Black return to the big screen this summer in a brand new movie which is guaranteed to capture the imagination of a new generation of film enthusiasts. Wearing the famous MIB outfit – which includes the Hamilton Ventura – the newest alien-fighting Agent is ready for action. The Hamilton Ventura has played a starring role in every MIB movie - as key to their characters as the black suit, wrap around shades and neuralyzer. The Ventura is one of our most popular watches and has had a cult following since its original release in 1957. Since 1997, it has been a part of the iconic Men in Black uniform. Daring, pioneering and ahead of its time, it’s an eye-catching choice that has served the Agents well.
DESIGNING AN ICON - ELVIS PRESLEY
The beginnings of Ventura took place in 1950s America. It was a time of transition. As the world emerged from years of conflict and austerity, there was suddenly time for growth, prosperity and the start of a rebellious counter culture that teenagers seized upon. Part of this movement was a new style of music, known as Rock and Roll, that would impact the whole world as it fused many different styles to create a distinctive sound – and a new look – that still influences artists today. Leather jackets, denim jeans and slick, sculpted hairstyles were part of the look and became the new uniform of youth.
