Post by FreeDive on 2013-03-11, 12:24

...or so the author of this article thinks. A good review, but are there any you'd add/replace?

Fun read- not sure I would have included the Ghost Buters or Big LaBowski watches- probably some vintage pieces I would have plugged in there. I wonder if Omega/Bond is the longest standing relationship of a watch with a film franchise?

Love the "Arnie". I would add the Casio from Sniper. I know a few guy's who went out and bought one.

Nice read...my favorite by far, Ripley's Seiko 7A28-7001 Giugiaro, in Aliens.

I am liking the seiko Martin Sheen was wearing in apocalypse now. The seiko 6105-8110

And also the white dialed seiko that Al Pacino wears in the movie Bobby Deerfield. The seiko 6139-7100.
