Hamilton builds Far Cry Field Watch for both in-game and real life action

0

Hamilton’s new Khaki Field Titanium Automatic has been built for action both in-game and in real life, according to developers.

It becomes the first branded watch in-game in the Far Cry franchise and players can now wear the military-inspired piece in real life too.

Rooted in the history of Yara, the fictional Caribbean island of Far Cry 6, the Khaki Field Titanium Automatic keeps on ticking through decades of instability, even during an assassination attempt on its former owner and ruler of the island Santos Espinosa in 1983.

In honor of this story of survival, only 1983 pieces of the special edition watch worn in-game will be available for purchase IRL.

Commenting on the timepiece, Omar Bouali, Game Content Director at Ubisoft, said: “Hamilton’s Khaki Field isn’t merely an accessory choice or functional asset but is truly integrated into Yara’s history with a connection to the island’s deposed leader.”

Adding: “It’s a small detail that adds immense authenticity to the cinematic world we’ve created.”

Players will have the opportunity to virtually wear this timepiece when Far Cry 6 launches, on October 7th on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Stadia, Amazon Luna and for Windows PC exclusively on both the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store.

In real life, carefully selected details give the 42mm field watch its distinct Far Cry character, bringing in-game adventures to life.

Surrounded by a brushed titanium case, the limited edition’s black vinyl dial features a matte center and a split ‘6’ marker, a reference to the game logo’s typography. A revolutionary red seconds hand is a nod to the game colors, chosen as a tribute to Yara’s guerilla forces.

Paired with a brown leather NATO strap, each watch also comes with an additional brown nubuck leather strap and changing tool to represent the do-it-yourself, ‘resolver’ spirit that’s critical for game players to embrace.

It is powered by Hamilton’s H-10 automatic movement featuring an 80-hour power reserve and a skeletonized rotor on display through an open case back.

The brand’s CEO, Vivian Stauffer, said: “We know from experience that designing a prop watch for the screen doesn’t always immediately translate to a real-world product.”

Adding: “It made the idea of someone wearing this limited edition piece while also using it as wrist gear in-game an extremely exciting prospect and we can’t wait to see it in action.”
