The watchmakers and designers at Hamilton had no idea of how the device was expected to function. They went to the original 1961 novel, “Dune,” by Frank Herbert, which the film is based on, and worked with Harlocker to create a timepiece that is appropriate for the new film. Together they created a hardwearing wrist device prop specifically for the Fremen. While the Desert Watch is exclusive to the film, The design of the wrist prop inspired Hamilton to launch two limited-edition timepieces based on the three-sided Ventura watch, one of its signature timepieces. The release of these new models coincides with the film’s March 1 release. Both Ventura models feature a luminous blue dial reminiscent of the Fremen’s unmistakable blue eyes and a black rubber strap. They are both powered by a quartz movement. The limited-edition pieces come with commemorative packaging inspired by the film.
