Hamilton has been continuously working with the movie industry since 1932, with its watches appearing in more than 500 major pictures.

This month the Swatch Group-owned watchmaker demonstrated its support again with sponsorship of the 10th Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards that took place in Los Angeles at the weekend with LA Confidential magazine.


The awards recognise the work of people operating behind the scenes. Without their hard work and dedication, making a movie would not be possible, Hamilton says.

The Behind the Camera Awards first took place in 2006 and have become a fixture on the Hollywood calendar, attracting some of the biggest names in the industry from both sides of the camera.

This year the awards were hosted by actor and comedian Tony Hale, who won Primetime Emmys for playing Gary Walsh in Veep.

Sylvain Dolla, CEO of Hamilton International said: “Thank you all for making great movies that make us dream, cry and laugh. Movies drive our imagination, encourage us to see the world with a new perspective, and tell stories that inspire us.”

Winners were presented with a special edition Hamilton Jazzmaster Regulator Cinema watch.
