Once again, Hamilton Watches is the perfect accessory for the action hero when every second counts in “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” which opens worldwide January 2014. In the film the brand presents the Khaki Titanium and the Khaki Flight Timer, two iconic timepieces made with Swiss precision and American spirit.
The black Khaki Titanium worn by Jack Ryan (played by Chris Pine) is the secret agent of watches, hiding its rugged construction beneath a sophisticated and elegant design. Like the character who wears it, the watch lives a double life; dressed for success, but ready for action.
The multi-functional Khaki Flight Timer worn by the character William Harper (played by Academy Award®-winner Kevin Costner) was modified especially for the film by Hamilton, who continues a decades-long tradition of collaborating with studios and filmmakers to create custom timepieces for movie characters.
Based on the CIA analyst created by espionage master Tom Clancy, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” is a blistering action thriller that follows Ryan (Chris Pine, “Star Trek”) from his quiet double-life as a veteran-turned-Wall Street executive to his all-out initiation as a hunted American agent on the trail of a massive terrorist plot in Moscow.
Caught between his tight-lipped handler Harper (Academy Award-winner Kevin Costner), his in-the-dark fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley) and a brilliant Russian oligarch (Kenneth Branagh), Jack must confront a new reality where no one can seem to be trusted, yet the fate of millions rests on his finding the truth.
