Did you watch Interstellar? If not, you should! Not only because of the watch that is featured there, but also because it is just an incredibly cool movie. It just so happened that the watches featured in Interstellar were made by Hamilton. One of them was christened “the Murph watch”, after the character to whom it was gifted. Nicknames are common in our hobby, but people began asking about the actual Khaki Field watch model name and where to buy this legend of the screen. The problem was that the watch was a one-off prop created for the film. Despite loud requests to the brand, the watch was not commercially available…
Years later, Hamilton heeded the call. Last year, in 2019, the Hamilton Khaki Field Murph was introduced to the world as an unlimited model. And, thankfully, it seems the watch’s appeal has not dwindled since it first hit the silver screen, way back in 2014.
The Murph also boasts a well-executed this easter egg. Printed along the centrally-mounted sweep seconds hand is a short message in Morse code. The message (which is barely visible on the wrist) says, “Eureka.” It’s a nice touch, for lovers of the movie that remember the scene in which Murph yells it to nobody in particular. Next to the bulkier Cathedral hands, the going seconds hand is not going to disrupt the watch’s legibility at all.
The Hamilton Murph has a lot to offer, not only story-wise. It is fitted with the self-winding caliber H-10, with a power reserve of 80 hours. That leaves the competition behind, especially at this price tag. You can read our most recent hands-on review of the Hamilton Murph on Fratello (click here).
