Twenty years after the first movie Independence Day, the second chapter Independence Day: Resurgence hits the big screen, starring new characters, actors, and the newest Hamilton timepieces.

In a special media screening of the ’90s blockbuster film’s much-awaited sequel at the Director’s Club in SM Megamall Fashion Hall, Speed got the first look of these featured Hamilton watches on the silver screen.

Independence Day actors Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, and James A. Woods each wears a Hamilton timepiece as they fight aliens to save Earth and bring the planet back from the brink of extinction.

Hemsworth plays pilot Jake Morrison, who fights from the skies wearing the Hamilton Khaki X-Wind automatic chronograph.

Adapted for all defense missions, the Khaki X-Wind automatic features pushers on its 44mm stainless steel case that are uniquely built to form an X. Meanwhile, the brown calf leather strap adds a vintage touch to the timepiece. Inside is an automatic movement, which powers chronograph and day-date functions, as well as a drift-angle calculator created specifically for pilots so they can measure crosswinds.

Goldblum sports a Hamilton Jazzmaster automatic with GMT function during the film, while Pullman has a Hamilton Thinomatic. Woods has the Hamilton Khaki Pilot Automatic Chronograph sported on his wrist in the film.

Independence Day: Resurgence is directed by Roland Emmerich, who also directed the first Independence Day, as well as other films such as The Day After Tomorrow.

Opened June 22 in the Philippines nationwide, the film also stars Maika Monroe, Travis Trope, William Fichtner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Judd Hirsch, Jessie Usher, Sela Ward, Brent Spiner, Vivica A. Fox, and Angelababy.
