Of Hamilton's relationship with Hollywood, Sylvain Dolla, CEO of Hamilton
International said, "A watch has a lot in common with a good film. At
Hamilton, we develop our watches with the same passion and commitment needed
by filmmakers when creating their movies. We also have the same goal: to
inspire our audience. Over the course of the six decades that we've
collaborated with filmmakers, Hamilton watches have helped prop masters and
costume designers to bring authenticity to characters. In Pearl Harbor for
example, to stay true to history, Hamilton military watches were worn by all
the pilots."

The honorees were selected from movies that were released during the year
and/or qualified and presented at the most recent prestigious movie festivals
of Cannes, Toronto and Venice as well as at the Festival of the American Film
Institute.

Hamilton was founded in 1892 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA and today its
watches combine the American spirit with the unrivalled precision of the
latest Swiss movements and technologies. Since 1951 the brand's distinctive
watches have caught the attention of the world's leading screen stylists.
Their eye-catching shapes, modern materials and unique designs have earned
them appearances in more than 400 films, including Hollywood blockbusters as
well as European, Chinese and Russian productions. Throughout the years,
Hamilton has created a tradition of integrating its signature styles with epic
storylines - from Stanley Kubrick's futuristic 2001: A Space Odyssey to sci-fi
stand-outs I Am Legend and the fan-favorite Men In Black trilogy. In 2013 the
brand reclaimed its role in the Die Hard series, when it appeared on the
wrists of the stars in the latest installment, A Good Day to Die Hard.
Hamilton is a member of the Swatch group, the largest watch manufacturer and
distributor in the world with 160 production sites in Switzerland.
