BeLOWZERO Special Edition: Hamilton is back on the big screen
Passion and creativity are at the heart of the Hamilton creations that have been appearing in Hollywood blockbusters for over 80 years. With its rich legacy of cinema watches, Hamilton unveils its latest collaboration with TENET, Christopher Nolan’s new film.
Watchmaking made a splash in the world of cinema in 2014. In the popular film Interstellar, a timepiece became a character in its own right. Meanwhile, this year, the Khaki Navy BeLOWZERO takes centre stage with its extraordinary features coupled with one-of-a-kind knowhow.

In his latest film, which is halfway between an action film and a sci-fi flick, the British-American filmmaker focuses on the concept of time. John David Washington, the main character, fights to save the world by travelling through a dark universe of international espionage.
For the film, Hamilton worked side by side with the design team to develop the Khaki Navy BeLOWZERO. The watch, which was designed exclusively as a film prop, is equipped with amazing features to perfectly meet the film’s needs.
Taking its cues from the model used in TENET, the BeLOWZERO Special Edition celebrates this outstanding partnership. The black titanium case paired with a red- or blue-tipped seconds hand is a reference to the colour variants in the film. The piece comes in a limited edition of 888 units, a palindrome, like TENET, that reads the same forward and backward.
The BeLOWZERO is driven by a self-winding H-10 movement and has a power reserve of 80 hours. The model is watertight to 100 bar, or approximately 1,000 metres.
It is set on a black rubber strap with a pin buckle and delivered in a special box. The box was created by TENET's production designer Nathan Crowley and comes in colours inspired by the film’s design elements.
“This project was one of the most challenging and exciting collaborations I’ve been a part of. It was truly a partnership of creativity that transformed ideas into a reality we’ll get to see on movie screens around the world.” Hamilton CEO Sylvain Dolla.
