Movie watches matter. Sean Connery’s Rolex Submariner in Dr. No, Steve McQueen’s Tag Heuer Monaco from Le Mans, and the infamous gold trench watch from Pulp Fiction hidden up Christopher Walken’s nether regions and handed down to Bruce Willis. It’s about branding, style, and creating part of the feel of the movie, whether it’s a dive watch outfitted with a laser, a chronograph for lap times, or an heirloom passed down generations. Hamilton’s iconic field watch in Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed film almost takes on its own character and now takes the form of a special version for purchase by lovers of the film and horology. ‘The Murph’ limited-edition watch has a 42mm stainless steel case, Swissh mechanical automatic movement, a flat black dial with vintage lumed Arabic numerals and military-style cathedral hands, and a unique second hand with “Eureka” lacquered in Morse code. Only 2,555 of these movie timepieces will be sold worldwide, so get on it and get yourself a new classic.
