nitially inspired by marine pioneers, Hamilton’s bold Khaki Navy BeLOWZERO has long captivated filmmakers. Appearing in blockbuster movies like “The Martian” and “TENET” the titanium tool watch represents a unique bridge between two worlds where Hamilton has deep ties: filmmaking and the outdoors.

Until now the impressive 46mm titanium case watch was only available in stealth black. The introduction of the luminous yellow color, seen in the rubber strap and hands, represents a new chapter in both style and function for this deep-sea dwelling favourite.

Sunlight comprises all the colors of our visible spectrum. When light penetrates water, the colours get split up. Because colors have different wavelengths, those with less energy are filtered out quickly. Yellow, combined with high contrast markers, is among the most visible in coastal waters. And while the Khaki Navy BeLOWZERO is water resistant up to an impressive 1000 meters, should the pressure exceed safety limits a valve will open to release the excess pressure to protect the internal mechanisms.

Perfect for an active lifestyle above or well beneath the water’s surface, this vibrant update to the Khaki Navy BeLOWZERO is a statement piece that will always be seen — no matter the depth.
