You deserve to be called a certified watch nerd when you can’t watch a movie without noticing the timepieces worn by the actors. To make the guesswork easier, let me tell you that Hamilton has landed several roles in 20th Century Fox’s new Independence Day: Resurgence, a sequel to the 1996 blockbuster, Independence Day.

The brand made its debut in Hollywood in 1951, in The Frogmen, and since then the brand had product placements in more than 450 movies, such as in Interstellar and The Martian.

Independence Day: Resurgence

We always knew they were coming back. After ‘Independence Day’ redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defence program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction. The film is directed by Roland Emmerich, who directed the first chapter, as well as other blockbusters such as The Day After Tomorrow. Independence Day: Resurgence stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, Travis Trope, William Fichtner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Judd Hirsch, Jessie Usher, Sela Ward, Brent Spiner, Vivica A. Fox, and Angelababy.

Independence Day: Resurgence will be released globally in cinemas starting June 22nd.

Hamilton Khaki X-Wind

Time matters as the world unites to save the planet from alien invasion and human destruction. Fighting from the skies is pilot Jake Morrison, played by Liam Hemsworth, and wearing a robust Khaki X-Wind automatic chronograph. Built for adventure and proudly supporting its military heritage, this powerful timepiece is perfectly adapted for all defense missions. The pushers on the 44-millimeter stainless steel case are uniquely built to form an X, while the brown calf leather strap adds a stylish vintage touch. Inside, its automatic movement powers chronograph and day-date functions, as well as a drift-angle calculator created specifically for pilots so they can measure crosswinds. Even when using alien technology, keeping track of time is essential, and the Hamilton Khaki X-Wind will scrupulously answer the need for precision.

Apart the X-Wind, you will also find an elegant Jazzmaster automatic GMT on the wrist of Jeff Goldblum, helping him keep track of time in the different cities during the alien invasion. A Thin-O-Matic can be seen on the wrist of Bill Pullman, and James A. Woods will be wearing a Khaki Pilot Automatic Chronograph, selected for their timekeeping precision and military-inspired design – because #TimeMatters when the earth is under attack.
