Living in the Age of Airplanes


Hamilton has been timing the skies since 1918 and has been appearing in Hollywood films for more than 65 years. Hamilton proudly supports “Living in the Age of Airplanes”, a beautiful new giant screen film from National Geographic Studios which was released worldwide in April 2015.

Produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (“One Six Right”), “Living in the Age of Airplanes” is narrated by actor and pilot Harrison Ford and features an original score by Academy Award®-winning composer and pilot James Horner (“Avatar,” “Titanic”).


The film takes audiences on an epic journey through 18 countries and across all seven continents as it presents a unique perspective on how the airplane has changed the world. Shot in 95 locations around the globe, from remote places like the South Pole to historically significant sites of ancient civilizations, the narrative weaves together the profound ways that aviation has transformed our lives - connecting countries and cultures while expanding horizons and minds.

“Hamilton has deep roots in aviation – and in filmmaking – so being a part of this documentary was a natural fit for our brand and our heritage. Our passion for aviation, movies and timekeeping are brought together perfectly in Brian Terwilliger’s unique documentary which takes us on an exciting and inspiring journey through the wonders of flying.” Sylvain Dolla, CEO of Hamilton International Ltd.
