Hamilton Time Player - Let's Play with Time

May 24, 2010
The Hamilton Time Player is an innovative timepiece, with the design inspired by the geographic coordinates system with lines of latitude and longitude. The watch has smartly united finger-managed timekeeping in four up-to-the-minute time zones.

It is interesting to mention that the Time Player has actually been suggested by the design developed by Hamilton for a clock in the Stanley Kubrick movie - Space Odyssey.

The absolutely flat case of the Hamilton watch, with dimensions of 48 mm by 42 mm, is crafted from titanium. It is split into nine squares eight of them are filled with counters you can move and one is left empty, resembling a sliding puzzle. The 9 counters are separated by lines inspired by those of latitude and longitude. They allow the watch owner to set and measure time in the current location, as well as three others.

The current location is marked by a Hamilton logo, while the extra three places are marked by differently colored printed names of Dubai, New York and Tokyo. Other four counters represent individual dials highlighted by colors matching their location.

For setting the time in the required time zone, you have to simply move the corresponding dial to the central square and make the adjustment with help of the crown. Then, you can move all of the counters around as you wish. The case incorporates two easy-to-grip crowns found on every of the two sides of the case.

The Hamilton Time Player watch is presented on a thick black rubber strap fitted with a neat folding buckle.

The timepiece is equipped with a quartz movement and is 50-meter water-resistant. It is expected to be available starting with June 2010 for approximately 3000 US dollars.
