The recent Hamilton release of the FarCry 6 watch collaboration has intrigued fans of both the watch brand and the game. This collaboration is very futuristic and will inspire a new wave of watch lovers. The watch brand has produced a timepiece that exists both in the FarCry game and in real life. Hamilton is famous for its film watches and vintage timepieces. However, this collaboration introduces the brand to a whole new audience. By bringing the watch from the game into reality, FarCry has added a new dimension to its true-to-life cinematic nature.
This timepiece is making history as it is the first branded watch in-game integration in the FarCry franchise. The collaboration is momentous for both Hamilton and FarCry, making this watch a truly unique timepiece. The futuristic nature of this unusual partnership is sure to pave the way for other watch brands. It is set to inspire a new approach towards combining the digital and real worlds. Only 1983 of these limited edition watches are available worldwide. This makes the FarCry 6 edition of the Khaki Field Titanium Auto watch is a highly collectable timepiece.
Combining Reality and the Game
Hamilton designed a watch that “keeps on ticking” both in the game and real life. This makes it a must have companion in both dimensions. The brand recognised that accurate timing, secure fit and authentic style would be vital to both game players and watch collectors, so ensured to feature these characteristics in both the digital and real life versions of the timepiece. FarCry emphasise the rugged and resilient nature of the watch throughout the game. It is shown to keep ticking through years of instability in the game’s universe. It even survives an assassination attempt of its former owner, tyrannical leader Antón Castillo.
The game player will travel through the game as Dani Rojas. Dani’s goal is to free the land of Yara from the clutches of the cruel dictator, Castillo. Rojas will receive the watch after having completed a guerilla mission. During the game, the watch will improve defence during sprints and allow players to get in and out of danger quickly. The in-game Hamilton watch will be a useful possession in Dani’s fight for freedom. The addition of a real life Hamilton watch to the FarCry 6 game is a subtle addition that makes the game feel more realistic than ever.

This timepiece has a unique style as it flawlessly combines state of the art functionality with military heritage to create a rugged, resilient and reliable watch. This model features unique characteristics that have not been included before in a Hamilton watch. These features have been especially designed as a nod to the game.

Additionally, the red shade of the second hand has been specially selected to match the game colours and fit with the theme of rebellion throughout FarCry 6.
The watch comes with two different straps. The first is a brown leather NATO style strap and the second is a brown nubuck leather strap. They are provided with a changing tool to encourage the ‘do it yourself’ spirit that it vital for game players. The watch comes with a brown leather storage pouch to keep the timepiece and its components safe and protected.

This model features a black, vinyl effect dial that is decorated with Old Radium Superluminova Arabic indices. The black hour and minute hands are also filled with the same Superluminova. This dial is protected by scratch resistant sapphire glass to enhance the durability of the watch.

Additionally, it features a skeletonised rotor and is equipped with a Nivachron balance spring. This movement is visible through the exhibition case back. Titanium is a desirable material in watches as it is both lightweight and resilient, providing comfortable wear without compromising durability.
