Hamilton is back in black with Jack

In 2018, Jack Ryan - one of the film world’s best-known characters - gets a spectacular makeover for the sub small screen and Hamilton is on board providing a trusty timepiece to a much-loved hero.

 

 

Renowned as the Movie Brand for the appearances of our watches in over 450 major movies since 1932, Hamilton now makes an impactful return in one of the most anticipated television and streaming series. Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan launches globally on Prime Video on August 31, 2018.  The series will bring Tom Clancy’s character to a whole new audience. 

 

John Krasinski becomes the latest actor to take on the role of Tom Clancy’s unexpected hero, Jack Ryan. Jack sports a trusty timepiece - the Hamilton Khaki Field Auto Chrono in full black. Rugged, robust and ready for anything, the watch draws on Hamilton’s rich military history.  

 

The 42 mm stainless steel case is PVD coated in full black, creating a stealth look perfect for our hero. With the exclusive Swiss-made H-21 automatic movement beating at the heart of the watch, Jack can rely on 60 hours of power reserve as well as chronograph and day-date functions. A sporty black rubber strap completes the package, offering wearer comfort as well as a snug and secure fit on the wrist. 

 

The Khaki Field Auto Chrono is a sensible choice for the CIA agent and – as is always the case with Hamilton watches – was chosen specifically to fit the character. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hamilton CEO Sylvain Dolla explains: "Jack Ryan promises to be one of the highlights of the streaming calendar this fall and, at Hamilton, we're excited one of our watches is contributing to the creation of such an authentic and credible character. It's a natural fit."

 

 

 

 

 

 

First presented to readers in the 1984 novel The Hunt For Red October, Jack Ryan is a former U.S. Marine who works as a history teacher at the U.S. Naval Academy before joining the CIA as an analyst. Like his creator Clancy, Ryan is a native of Baltimore, Maryland.

 

 

 

 

 

The Amazon Prime Original series is a modern reinvention of the Jack Ryan story. The action centers on Ryan when he is still an up-and-coming CIA analyst who is thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time when he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication. He finds himself at the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale. Presented in eight, one-hour episodes, the series has already been renewed for a second season.  

 

Taking Hamilton’s rich military history as inspiration, the Khaki Field collection represents the ideal choice for a man of Ryan’s credentials. The Hamilton Khaki Field is considered by many as the original soldier’s watch, following its distribution to hundreds of thousands of military personnel from 1942 onwards. Today’s Jack Ryan wears one of the newest versions of the watch, featuring functions today’s modern man expects from an all-action timepiece.
