Hamilton Watch Co. has been a provider of timepieces to filmmakers and prop masters since one of its watches first graced the silver screen in 1951’s The Frogmen. (A new piece inspired by that watch debuted this year at Baselworld.) Now the Swiss brand with American roots announces the release of a new, futuristic watch designed by an Oscar-nominated production director: the Hamilton ODC X-03.

The Hamilton ODC X-03, a limited edition of 999 pieces, is actually the third in a trilogy of watches inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s iconic film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, which featured Hamilton watches; it follows up the X-01, which was launched in 2006, and the x-02, from 2009. It is the product of a meeting between Hamilton executives and the three-time Oscar-nominated production designer of 2014’s Interstellar, Nathan Crowley, at that year’s Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards (BTCA) in Los Angeles. (The watch company hosts the awards annually, and viewers of Interstellar will likely recall the key role a Hamilton watch played in that film.)

Amazing how Hamilton manages to come out with so many great watches yet still manage to puke up something like this crap every few years.

Indeed. Hammy has brought out some iconic watches, cutting edge as well as traditional, and then they unearth (or unJupiter) a piece of shit like this one. It's like they have an insane designer confined to their attic, and every so often he breaks out.

I am and have always been a huge Hamilton fan, own several, no qualms about my fandom - but as we've talked about before, when they miss - this ODC X-03 monstrosity, the Khaki Below Zero, several Ventura variations, the preposterous new Navy Frogman, the Jazzmaster Two-Face (has to be seen to be believed), the revival of the Pulsomatic, and this monstrosity:

Looks like something you would get from one of those stuffed animal fishing game machines. Hamilton needs to leave that level of stupidity to MB&F.
