“The conservation of biodiversity is the most important problem of our time.“
Hamilton unveils the Khaki Conservation, created in collaboration with Harrison Ford, to support Conservation International.
Harrison Ford’s love of action is not limited to daring stunts. It also embraces his commitment to finding innovative solutions to combat the threats posed to the global environment. For more than 17 years the actor has been on the board of directors of Conservation International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting life on earth and to demonstrating that human societies will thrive when in balance with nature.
Hamilton has been future-oriented throughout its 116-year existence and obviously feels that it is time to help protect the planet. Therefore, it has made a financial commitment to Conservation International to support this organization’s valuable work around the world.
Making a difference
The Khaki Conservation timepieces have GMT functionality, with the second time zone selection covering a range of focus locations for Conservation International projects, from Colombia to Indonesia. Harrison Ford was actively involved in the design of the watche and his signature of stylish adventure is clearly evident. The classical black dial bears bold numbers with inner and outer counter rings adding a touch of edgy dynamism. And just as the success of every heroic stunt depends on meticulous attention to detail, the watch comes with crafted finishing touches such as fine cut-out hands and date windows, or studded and stitched leather strap.
Every second counts
The preservation of planet earth is extremely time-critical. The highprecision Swiss Automatic GMT movement in the Khaki Conservation watch, visible through the see-through case back, mirrors this fact. Decorating this ’window’ is the engraved signature of Harrison Ford together with the Conservation International logo. Special packaging in corrugated cardboard also supports the message of preserving resources by utilizing recycled materials.
Harrison Ford vividly sums up the urgency of environmental protection in his own words – “Our health relies entirely on the vitality of our fellow species on Earth. When we protect the places where the processes of life can flourish, we strengthen not only the future of medicine, agriculture and industry, but also the essential condition for peace and prosperity.”
