For more than 17 long years, one of the most popular Hollywood actors, Harrison Ford, has been on the board of directors for Conservation International (CI) and rallied for environmental protection. Preservation of the planet is one of the most pressing issues today.
The high-precision Swiss Automatic GMT movement in the Khaki Conservation watches, visible through the see-through case back, mirrors this fact. Ford was actively involved in the design of the watches, which clearly reflect his love for style, action and adventure.
Hamilton, a member of the Swatch Group, has been known for innovative design and watch technology in its 116 years of existence. Being future-oriented in its approach, it made a financial commitment to CI, a non-profit organisation dedicated to protecting life on earth and to demonstrating that human societies will thrive when in balance with nature.
The Khaki Conservation timepieces have GMT functionality, with the second time zone selection covering a range of focus locations for CI projects, from Colombia to Indonesia. The classical black dial bears bold numbers with inner and outer counter rings adding a touch of edgy dynamism. Providing meticulous attention to detail are crafted finishing touches such as fine cut-out hands and date windows, or studded and stitched leather straps. Decorating this ‘window’ is the engraved signature of Harrison Ford together with the CI logo. Going a step beyond is the packaging in corrugated cardboard, which only adds to their message of preserving resources by utilizing recycled materials.
