Rod Serling can be seen wearing his Ventura many times in his hosting spots on the Twilight Zone...Elvis also wore a Ventura in Blue Hawaii (it was his personal watch...).

Thanks for these pics, Nathan. Some I have seen before, but the Rod Serling one, in particular, is higher res than usual and really shows off the details of the watch. And his teeth. :lol:

In the movie North by Northwest the actor Martin Landau, who plays the character Leonard, is clearly wearing a Viscount.

The list of Hamiltons seen in movies is quite short. I guess to remember Fred Ward wore a Piping Rock in the 1991 movie "Cast a Deadly Spell". But I'm not sure.
I seen this movie a few days ago and it was seeing the watch, a piper rock, that sparked my interest in Hamilton watches. Here’s a screenshot of the watch at 12 o’clock when the scene is set. Startling in its simplicity. I believe there was a few reissues of the watch. Does anyone now which one this is?

Pretty sure that's a quartz reissue with a missing crown, LOL.

It’s the re-issue of the Hamilton Piping Rock done in the 1980’s
