Living in the Age of Airplanes


Hamilton has been timing the skies since 1919 and has been appearing in Hollywood films for more than 60 years. This month, the brand blends together its history in aviation with its ties to movie making. Hamilton proudly supports “Living in the Age of Airplanes,” a beautiful new giant screen film from National Geographic Studios which was released worldwide beginning April 10, 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 for timekeeping are brought together perfectly in Brian Terwilliger’s unique documentary that takes us on an exciting and inspiring journey through the wonder of flying.” Sylvain Dolla, CEO of Hamilton International Ltd.


In addition to the Hamilton Khaki X-Wind that can be seen in the film, Hamilton offers an innovative line of precision-crafted pilot watches, including its brand new Khaki Chrono Worldtimer, the Limited Edition Khaki Takeoff and the Khaki Pilot Pioneer Aluminum which just hit stores last November.
