Will Smith Wears Hamilton Ventura in Men in Black 3
Men in Black 3, once again starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2012. Just as in the 1997 original, Will Smith will wear a Hamilton Ventura watch, featuring a black, leather strap, a silver-tone stainless steel case, and a light dial specially incorporated by Hamilton for the event. The Ventura has a long history of film appearances dating back to Elvis Presley’s 1961 movie Blue Hawaii. Hamilton is well-acquainted with collaborating with prop masters and costume designers, having had watches featured in countless movies and television shows, including A Beautiful Mind, Abduction, Ocean’s Eleven, Predators, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and more.
The Ventura first appeared on the scene in 1957 as the original electric, battery-powered watch. It features a distinctive, shield-shaped case and hour markers modeled after the wall clocks of the fifties—thin sticks ending in a rounded point. Hamilton currently offers a dozen different versions of the Ventura, both quartz and automatic, all of which include stainless steel, water resistance of 50 meters, and either hardened mineral or sapphire crystal. They feature classic color combinations of black, brown, white, silver-tone, and gold-tone, with sizes for both men and women. Hamilton has also designed a number of limited edition “Elvis Anniversary” designs to commemorate his contribution to the watch’s popularity.
