Hamilton, known as the Movie Brand, has starred in over 500 of the biggest movies ever made. As a brand, they have turned down many other roles! Hamilton chooses which projects to be involved with by considering ‘will the watch help to define the character?’. The very first Hamilton watch featured in a blockbuster way back in 1932 and Hamilton haven’t looked back since.
The most renowned on screen appearances begin with the Shanghai Express starring Marlene Dietrich. This partnership runs deep through history and continues to inspire stylists and designers. The second biggest cinematic appearance was in a film named ‘The Frogmen’ which propels the Hamilton Frogman collection into being as well known as it is today! 10 years later, Hamilton collab with the king himself, Elvis Presley in the film ‘Blue Hawaii’. Elvis was already an avid Hamilton Venture fan/customer.
