As a special “bonus giveaway” this month, we are pleased to offer one lucky winner a Hamilton Khaki X-Wind Auto Chrono watch, the same model as the timepiece worn by actor Liam Hemsworth (who plays the character Jake Morrison) in the new movie Independence Day: Resurgence. Hamilton has a few watches in the new Twentieth Century Fox film that is the sequel to the original Independence Day movie which came out a full 20 years ago in 1996. As a youth, I have very specific memories of the movie coming out and the anticipation myself and friends had to see what was that summer’s biggest blockbuster.
This is yet another Hollywood movie that features Hamilton watches on a variety of characters. You’ll maybe recall two other recent science fiction movies such as The Martian and Interstellar that also had Hamilton watches on main characters (or “as” main character) in the movies. In my opinion, the Hamilton Khaki X-Wind Auto Chrono is the most interesting Hamilton watch to be featured in Independence Day: Resurgence, and by entering below for a roughly two-week period during this bonus giveaway, you may be able to win one.
The Hamilton Khaki X-Wind Auto Chrono comes in a 44mm-wide steel case with Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement that has been modified into the Hamilton caliber H-21 – which ups the power reserve to 60 hours. You might notice that the movement is mounted opposite how it normally is for a 7750 given the particular layout of the X-Wind dial. Two additional crowns on the case operate inner rotating bezels which are designed to allow pilots to measure how crosswinds will effect their flight. Chances are you won’t be requiring those features, but they are cool to have on this sharp-looking aviation sports watch. The case is water resistant to 100 meters with sapphire crystal over the dial and is paired to a brown leather pilot’s-style strap. Retail price for this reference H77616533 Hamilton watch is $1,595. See Independence Day: Resurgence, and enter below for a chance to win the watch.
