From the screen to the wrist: the watches made famous by the cinema
The films are a worldwide showcase and often the public is inspired by actors and celebrities to take care of their look.
Clocks are certainly among the accessories on the big screen. Male status symbols par excellence can be noted in an elegant way, not ostentatious.
Among the timepieces that have become unforgettable icons of masculine style we can not fail to mention the Rolex Submariner ref. 6538 the diving watch par excellence tied to the 007 interpreted by Sean Connery in "Dr. No" (1962).
Another watch made famous by the cinema is the TAG Heuer Monaco that Steve McQueen wore in the 1971 film Le Mans.
In "Indianapolis, Infernal Track" (1969) Paul Newman wears a Rolex Daytona ref. 6239 that in a short time will become for all the Daytona Paul Newman recently sold at auction for 17.8 million dollars (goo.gl/UviYdZ).
Always Steve McQueen in "The Hunter" (1980) brings a Rolex and even if you do not see a direct shot the model has made the Explorer II famous. 1655.
The watch we wear tells who we are and who we want to be and is suitable both to mark the time in the greatest movies in the history of cinema and to remind us simply that time to go to lunch.
