Introduced in 2019, this special wristwatch from Hamilton takes us to the epic science fiction film Interstellar.
This award winning movie was directed by Christopher Nolan. Released in 2014, the futuristic blockbuster movie Interstellar captivates the viewers 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.
‘The Murph’ is the affectionate name given by fans of the movie to the Hamilton watch that stars in the film and is integral to the plot. No other movie appearance epitomizes the importance of Hamilton’s Hollywood collaboration quite like ‘the Murph’ in Interstellar.
In the film, the existence of humanity is under threat and a team from NASA uses interstellar travel to try to find a new planet.
Joseph Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a former NASA pilot, joins the mission which means leaving his daughter, Murphy Cooper (Jessica Chastain). Cooper gives Murph his watch. From inside the ‘tesseract’ of the fifth dimension, Cooper sends a message using Morse code through the seconds hand of Murph’s watch. It is the quantum data that will help humanity escape dying Earth. When she works out the formula, Murph shouts ‘Eureka!’ to mark her discovery. Humanity is saved.
With its 42 mm 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 movie watch.
The only difference is one that is sure to appeal to fans of the movie. The word ‘Eureka’ is printed in lacquer in Morse code on the seconds hand.
In close collaboration with the film’s award-winning production designer, Nathan Crowley, Hamilton also developed a special box which is an inspiration of the famous tesseract from the film. The Khaki Field Murph itself is not limited, but the special packaging is. Just 2,555 have been produced.
The colored stripes recall the inside of the supercube where Cooper is when he discovers he can communicate with Murph through time and space.
