Hamilton and Interstellar: making “The MURPH”


Hamilton is the official partner of one of the most important national and international film events: the Turin Film Festival 2019, which will be held from November 22nd to 30th.

Rocca introduces the new Khaki Field Murph Auto by Hamilton. This model is a faithful recreation of the watch that appeared in the movie Interstellar, on the wrist of the main character Murph.

The protagonist of this movie is a love story between a father, Cooper, and his daughter Murph. The Khaki Field Murph is one of the main emotional links between the two main characters.

“The Murph” is the affectionate name given by fans of the movie to the Hamilton watch that stars in the film and is integral to the plot.

In the film, the existence of humanity is under threat and a team from NASA uses interstellar travel to try to find a new planet. Cooper, a former NASA pilot, joins the mission which means leaving his daughter, Murph. Cooper gives Murph his watch. From inside the “tesseract” of the fifth dimension Cooper sends a message using Morse code through the Murph’s watch. It is the quantum data that will help humanity escape dying Earth.

How “Murph” was born

It was clear that fans of the movie wanted an opportunity to own a piece of cinema history that means something to them. So Hamilton made the Khaki Field Murph timepiece.

With its 42mm stainless steel case, black dial, beige Super-LumiNova® inlaid hands, H-10 automatic movement with 80-hour power reserve and black leather strap, the Khaki Field Murph is an exact reproduction of the movie watch.
In close collaboration with the film’s award-winning production designer, Nathan Crowley, Hamilton developed a special box which is an inspiration of the famous tesseract from the film. The Khaki Field Murph itself is not limited, but he special packaging is, only just 2.555 edition. The colored stripes recall the inside of the supercube where Cooper is when he discovers he can communicate with Murph through time and space.
