Want to dress like Indiana Jones? You can with this incredible Hamilton watch

Dial in your destiny as Indiana Jones when you add this Hamilton watch to your wardrobe

Hamilton Boulton Watch

If you want to be a good archaeologist, you gotta get out of the library, and if you want to dress like the most famous archeologist Indiana Jones, you gotta get the watch. With the release of the newest and final installment of the Indiana Jones franchise on June 30 almost here, there’s been an addition to the classic Jones look that you need to check out.

While Indiana normally rocks a minimalistic style, where he can’t even keep his shirt buttoned most of the time, for his swan song, he was gifted a Hamilton watch. We’ll tell you how this duo came together for the final film.

Indiana Jones and Hamilton Boulton Watch

Indiana’s last accessory

We know we’re going to sob when the end credits roll on Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny and Indy leaves our lives forever, so at least we’ll be left with a fashion statement. Indiana’s most dazzling personal accessory so far might be his classic shoulder bag to carry his whip or Sankara stones in, but his retirement present of a Hamilton watch is pretty nice. 

Since the movie will jump between a few different decades, Doctor Jones needs a watch that will look classic and stylish in both, without standing out too much.

The Hamilton American Classic Boulton Quartz details

  • A white dial with a second, smaller subdial for the seconds
  • Serif-style golden numerals
  • PVD yellow coating
  • Stainless steel case
  • Reshaped brown calf leather strap

First introduced in the 1940s, revamped in the 1980s, the Hamilton Boulton was rebooted for Indiana’s last crack this summer, this time with larger specifications to give it that final, updated touch. The props department for the film worked with Hamilton to make sure Indiana’s watch was just right, as well as historically accurate.


Hamilton and Hollywood

The fact that Indiana is getting a fancy timepiece shouldn’t be a huge surprise for his exit film. Hamilton watches for men have been gracing the wrists of leading Hollywood stars in feature films for almost 100 years, making us want to dress just like them.

Check out the Hamilton wrist candy in these films

  • Tenet used the Hamilton Khaki BeLOWZERO for John-David Washington and Robert Pattinson
  • Roger Moore’s James Bond in Live and Let Die featured the Hamilton Pulsar
  • The Hamilton Khaki Navy BeLOWZERO graced Matt Damon’s wrist in The Martian
  • Elvis wore the Hamilton Ventura in Blue Hawaii
  • The Hamilton Viewmatic helped George Clooney pull off the heist in Ocean’s Eleven
  • The Hamilton “Murph” was designed for the film Interstellar
  • The Men in Black franchise loved to use the Hamilton Ventura

If there is a scene in a film where a watch plays a pivotal role, then Hamilton is who they call on to use (or create) the perfect wrist accessory. There’s also no better way to market such extravagant timepieces than to have them on Hollywood’s most successful men and our on-screen heroes.

The hat. The messenger bag. The whip. The chin scar. Okay, well, you can’t buy everything to make you look like Indiana Jones, but you could get pretty darn close. You must choose. But choose wisely. Pick this Indiana Jones watch to add to your list of items to wear while you rewatch the entire franchise. There’s only fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory. And this watch has it all.

ZENITH Watches DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition lands September 25, limited to 100 watches, priced at $30,100
There are only 100 pieces AND you get to meet Carl Cox
ZENITH Defy Extreme Carl Cox watch

Luxury watch enthusiasts, mark your calendars! ZENITH is set to release a horological marvel that's bound to send ripples through the world of timekeeping. The DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition from ZENITH watches, a limited masterpiece, is slated to land on September 25. With only 100 pieces available and priced at a sumptuous $30,100, this timepiece is a tribute to both precision and fashionable aesthetics.
A fusion of craftsmanship: The ZENITH DEFY Extreme Carl Cox Edition
ZENITH's collaboration with Carl Cox, an ambassador for the brand, has given birth to an extraordinary creation. At the heart of this men's watch beats the most rugged and fastest 1/100th of a second chronograph, setting the tempo for accuracy that is second to none. But this watch is not just about attention to detail; it's also a nod to Carl Cox's musical heritage. The design takes cues from his favorite set of turntables, seamlessly blending the worlds of horology and music. The chronograph sub-counters have fine circular ridges that look like vinyl records, and the one at 9 o’clock has a Carl Cox logo on it. The number of sub-counters, three, also reflects Cox’s pioneering three-deck DJing style.

The ZENITH DEFY Extreme Carl Cox edition is a stunning watch that combines the best of both worlds: a classic design with a modern twist. This watch features a 45mm matte microblasted stainless steel and yellow gold case, with a 12-sided yellow gold insert under the bezel and crown guards. This blend of materials exudes a minimalistic and retro-futuristic look; it's a visual masterpiece that will undoubtedly turn heads. The case is water-resistant to 200m and has a screw-down crown for added security. The dial is open-worked, revealing the intricate workings of the El Primero 9004 in-house calibre, a chronometer-certified movement that boasts a dual regulating organ, one for timekeeping and one for the chronograph.

All new Rolex 1908 men’s watch leans into timeless Rolex styling and we can’t get enough of it
You won't stop staring at it, but that has nothing to do with what time it is
The Rolex Perpetual 1908

The world’s most desirable watch brand, Rolex, is paying homage to its long and storied history with a new series of watches. The new Rolex watch takes inspiration from the vintage timepieces that made the luxury brand what it is today. So expect an almost impossibly slim profile, smaller dimensions than modern men’s watches, and large numbers. Another nice vintage touch is the lack of a central seconds hand, with a dedicated sub-dial being used instead.

Rolex’s main inspiration when creating the Perpetual 1908 is the original Oyster Perpetual from 1931. While its 39mm diameter may be a little more petit than the 45+ mm dive watches that have been in vogue over the last few decades, it’s actually somewhat of a compromise. Many classic men’s watches are rocking 34mm or 36mm cases.
