Introducing: The Hamilton ODC X-03, The Brand's Latest Sci-Fi Collaboration With Hollywood (And An Homage To Kubrick's '2001')
Before we get into the actual watch, it’s significant that Hamilton has a lovely long history with Hollywood and with science fiction motion pictures specifically. Hamiltons have been worn in many movies returning to the 1950s. A Hamilton was broadly worn in the exemplary 2001: A Space Odyssey and, all the more as of late, a Hamilton watch assumed a huge part in the previously mentioned blockbuster Interstellar. In the event that this watch had come out of the blue, it would appear to be somewhat abnormal – or, fairly, more bizarre than it as of now does.
Hamilton has a long history with Hollywood and sci-fi – this is the most recent incarnation.
The ODC X-03 is a major one. The case is 49mm x 52mm and is made of dark PVD-covered titanium to eliminate weight. There are unbalanced non-PVD bolts holding the bezel to the fundamental case, an enormous enemy of intelligent sapphire gem, and a cowhide lined texture tie also. Yet, what’s that at the focal point of the watch? Goodness, just Jupiter. No biggie. The dial is a photorealistic 3D-printed Jupiter that appears to mostly obscure the primary opening for the situation. On top of that are three dials for reading a clock in three places without a moment’s delay – nearby time, Universal Coordinated Time (UTC), and home time. The white numerals have a retro-modern vibe to them and are high-contrast against the dark registers.

A little foundation: the ODC X-03 is the third in a progression of triple time-region watches created by Hamilton – ODC X-01 was the first, and it’s a close precise copy of the Hamilton watch intended for 2001: A Space Odyssey; it was delivered in 2006. The second was ODC X-02, delivered in 2009. ODC X-03’s Jupiter theme, incidentally, is a holler to the first form in the film 2001, where the outsider ancient rarity that gets the plot rolling is found circling the goliath planet by the spaceship Discovery. Indeed, the three dials look similar to the three dish reception apparatuses on the rear of the anecdotal interplanetary vessel – it’s as though you’re taking a gander at Jupiter across the length of the spaceship.
At 49mm x 52mm, there’s no way to avoid this being an enormous watch.
There are really three developments, one fueling every one of the three dials. The fundamental nearby time dial has a programmed ETA 2671 roosted under, while the more modest UTC and home time dials use ETA quartz developments all things being equal (ETA 901.001 to be exact). The 2671 is really a lovely cool development – it traces all the way back to 1971 and is one of the more modest programmed developments out there at only 17.5mm across (7.75 ligne, in case we’re by and large truly exact).
The watch’s dial is, indeed, a goliath 3D-printed Jupiter.
If you look carefully, there’s really space around the primary time dial that is completely open. On the off chance that you focused a light from the back, it would give off an impression of being outlining the planet. You’ll additionally see that the case doesn’t have any projecting crowns. All things considered, the three crowns are set into the side of the case and flip out for when you need to set the different timezones. With the size of the case, crowns would just make the watch bigger, and they would separate the spotless lines of the case as well.
Instead of conventional crowns, there are these long crowns that overlay out from the sides of the case.
At this point, I will express the self-evident: you must be a quite large science fiction fan for this watch to be an engaging alternative. Like, a really enormous fan. Furthermore, it absolutely wouldn’t do any harm if Interstellar, or surprisingly better, 2001: A Space Odyssey, was your #1 film. Regardless of whether the bad-to-the-bone Jupiter theme isn’t your thing however, there are still some intriguing things to be found with regards to the ODC X-03. For one, I think the possibility of a multi-development watch is captivating – it takes the possibility of a measured development above and beyond. I additionally sort of uncover the extended flip crowns and could see them functioning admirably in different settings too.
The Hamilton ODC X-03 is a restricted release of 999 pieces, and is estimated at 3,500 CHF (with U.S. evaluating not yet immovably set, however it should come in around $3,500 also). For additional, visit Hamilton on the web .
