This Hamilton Ventura Quartz is one of our most popular watches.
Originally designed in 1957, making history as the world’s first electrical, battery powered watch. However, its retro style is still a futuristic looking standout. In addition, as a result of Ventura’s futuristic stylings, it’s the official timepiece of Men in Black agents all over the world. Seriously, Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith and Tessa Thompson have all worn the Ventura. The watch appears in all four episodes of the MIB series. As much a part of their uniform as the black suit and wraparound sunglasses.
Extraordinary style for an extraordinary man. For example, Elvis Presley, who’s seen wearing this watch in the movie, Blue Hawaii.
Noted Hamilton historian, Jarett Harkness was quoted as saying, “I’m not sure how Elvis Presley’s White Gold Ventura got onto Blue Hawaii, but I imagine it was just because Elvis was fascinated with the watch, and owned one, and it looked good for the movie”. As a matter of fact, Presley owned many Venturas through the years, and was known to give them as gifts.
Most importantly, Hamilton’s early electric watches sparked the battery powered technology of today’s high quality quartz movements like the one used in this brand new Ventura. In addition, Hamilton is great about updating the iconic style as well. Occasionally creating a fresh take on this timeless piece. Today’s Ventura is a faithful rendition of the original history-making design. In stainless steel with a black leather band.
