The model developed by Hamilton for the film never went into production, but the current 1st generation model was introduced as a commemorative version in 1969.

The dial is silver with an inner minute track, short wedge shaped luminous hands, an inner minute track, and features a wide black perimeter with windows for the luminous hours. The lume of the hands as well as the dial have turned a rich and warm straw hue.
