This unique watch has discovered its own way of putting the past, present and
future on the same map. Its design structure is inspired by the geographic
coordinates system based on lines of latitude and longitude. Implementation of
its unusual timekeeping concept unites finger-operated timekeeping in four
up-to-the-minute time zones with zany design belonging to the future. In this
watch Hamilton provocatively merges nostalgia for its American roots with the
latest Swiss technology to offer a glimpse of tomorrow. This timepiece lets the
fingers do the walking, leaving the mind free to exercise its memory and
Hamilton took inspiration for the Time Player from a design the company
originally created for a clock in the Stanley Kubrick movie, 2001: Space Odyssey
and brought it back to earth. For centuries, man believed that the earth's
surface was flat. Hamilton playfully revisits this idea with the Time Player
watch, in a design that is resolutely contemporary and inspired by a society
constantly on the move, taking change in its stride. A totally flat 48 mm by 42
mm titanium case is split into nine squares, eight filled with movable counters
and one left empty like a sliding puzzle. These counters, separated by lines
symbolizing those of latitude and longitude, enable the wearer to set and
measure time in the current location, plus three others. A Hamilton logo marks
the here and now, while the additional three places are identified by
color-coded printed names of the dynamic metropoles, Dubai, New York and Tokyo
to prove that the brand is always on the move. The remaining four counters are
all individual watch dials, in colors to match the corresponding location, so
that they can dedicate their energy to tracking the passage of time in the
To set the time in a desired time zone the wearer simply moves the corresponding
miniature watch to the central square and adjusts via a crown. Once this is
done, all of the counters can be moved around again at will. Two easy to grip
crowns are positioned on each of the two sides of the case where the attachment
joins. The thick black rubber strap also picks up the theme of right angles with
corresponding indents and a neat folding buckle.
