  • Summary

The latest creation of the Hamilton Lab, the ODC X-02 Quartz, takes watch design to totally new frontiers. In a futuristic shaped case, appropriately modelled on the cross-section of an aircraft’s wing, this timepiece allows the wearer to be in three places at once. This is possible thanks to three separate, oblong dials, each revealing the time in a different location. The ODC X-02 Quartz already has its eye on Hollywood movie appearances with its design being inspired by the watch Hamilton originally made for Stanley Kubrick’s 1966 movie, “2001: A Space Odyssey”.

Location, location, location

A valve-like pusher at the top of each dial enables the setting of three independent times. Viewed from the side, these resemble miniature telescopes with easy-to-grip tips. The analog time display in each of the three sections is close to the pusher, giving the impression that it is floating to the surface of the dial window. Each window has its own curved sapphire crystal, enclosing the top and side of the individual dial for self-contained timekeeping in the chosen zone.

Out of this world design

The ODC X-02 Quartz comes with a choice of a plain titanium case or one with black PVD coating. Its outline is angular, contrasting with the soft curves of the framework supporting the crystals. Perfectly matching the black dial backgrounds is a smooth black rubber strap finished with a metal buckle that fits together like two pieces of a puzzle. This unique timepiece promises to be a showstopper on and off the screen and is limited to just 1,000 pieces.

Stanley Kubrick and ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’

In 1966, Stanley Kubrick, one of America’s most celebrated film directors and producers, commissioned Hamilton to create the timepieces for his science-fiction movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Hamilton design team presented Kubrick with a futuristic wristwatch and a desk clock. The Hamilton designs were extremely eye-catching and even Vogue and Esquire magazines were captivated, printing pictures of them. This led to a flood of customer requests asking where they could purchase the space-age timepieces. Prohibitive production costs meant that the futuristic timepieces could never be commercialised. In the 21st century the saga continues with new limited edition timepieces.
