As “The Wandering Earth 2” unveils the prequel story, humanity’s fate is at stake
"The Wandering Earth 2" follows the story of its predecessor "The Wandering Earth", with the beginning of the radical group Digital Life Project, the first exposure of the moon engine and the imminent solar crisis.
The movie is directed by Hamilton brand ambassador Frant Gwo, produced by Liu Cixin, and stars Wu Jing, Li Xuejian, Sha Yi, Ning Li, Wang Zhi and Zhu Yan Manzi, as well as a special performance by Mr. Andy Lau. After four years of preparation and filming, “The Wandering Earth 2” released on January 22nd, the first day of Chinese New Year 2023.
When time becomes an emotional link for human beings, what meaning is hidden in the custom-made Hamilton watch?
In the preparation stage of the movie, director Frant Gwo reached out to Hamilton designers to create a unique custom-made watch for his new movie. The watch would express the concept of "a Round Sky embracing a Square Earth", an ancient Chinese philosophy and artistic conception of Chinese ink painting.
Our watch design team embraced the challenge. Frant Gwo provided essential in-depth understanding of “The Wandering Earth” story, as well as his take on science fiction movies. After several months of perfecting the timepiece, we succeeded in creating a unique prop watch featured in “The Wandering Earth 2”.
