Known for its innovative design, Hamilton has a strong foothold in Hollywood, with products appearing in over 500 films. Now that Hamilton is celebrating their cinema year, they’ve made the Khaki Field Murph.

 

In 2014, the sci-fi blockbuster Interstellar hit the box office, captivating audiences with its special effects, intriguing plot, and the love story between a father and his daughter. The Khaki Field Murph is one of the main emotional links between the two main characters.

 

In the movie, the existence of humanity is under threat and a team from NASA uses interstellar travel to try to find a new planet. Former NASA pilot, Cooper, joins the mission which means leaving behind his daughter, Murph. Before leaving, Cooper gives Murph his watch as a memento. When Cooper is trapped inside of the fifth dimension, he sends a message using Morse code through the seconds hand of Murph’s watch.

 

‘The Murph’ is the affectionate name given by fans of the movie to the Hamilton watch that stars in the film and became an essential part of the storyline. It was clear that fans of the movie wanted an opportunity to own a piece of cinema history that meant something to them.

 

With its 42mm stainless steel case, black dial, beige Super-LumiNova® inlaid hands, H-10 automatic movement with 80-hour power reserve, and black leather strap, the Khaki Field Murph is an exact reproduction of the watch that stars in Interstellar.

 

The only difference is one that is sure to appeal to fans of the movie. The word ‘Eureka’ is printed in Morse code on the second hand. It calls back to the moment when Murph deciphers the Morse code sent by Cooper through the watch and finds a way to save humanity. If you didn’t know it was there, you’d never see it but for those in on the secret, it’s clear to see and will have special significance for true Interstellar fans.

 

In close collaboration with the film’s award-winning production designer, Nathan Crowley, Hamilton developed a special box inspired by the famous tesseract from the film. Only 2,555 Khaki Field Murphs have been produced with special packaging.

 

 

Hamilton’s defining movie moment is now a defining moment for the movie’s fans who can own ‘the Murph’ – a piece of movie history.
