The brand is constantly working with directors, prop masters, costume designers and technical staff to design models that are the perfect fit for the actors and the script. In 1960s producer Stanley Kubrick approached the brand to develop a watch and a table clock for his new futuristic film 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. For the Sci-Fi movies Men in Black and Men in Black 2 Hamilton specially equipped its iconic Ventura with a light dial. The Khaki Twilight, also was created for the needs of the movie I AM LEGEND. It integrates the facility to countdown to the beginning and end of twilight.
