Even with all of the explosions, mind-blowing scenes and high-octane car chases, it would be hard to miss the expensive watches which made their way into the new Netflix movie featuring Ryan Reynolds.
In case you did not have the interior, make it in the Hollywood scene or the Swiss watch scene, there was some pretty hard-to-miss product placement occurring in the new Netflix original action film starring Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds as”One”, the billionaire leader of a rogue set of activity heroes all without names, just numbers. Lior Raz, (the lead actor from popular Netflix series Fauda) plays Rovach Alimov, the evil tyrant who is hunted down by these highly skilled rogue agents.
This opening scene glamourized Chop ard’s most priceless piece of jewelry. On the other hand, the rest of the film had quite a few of the precious wristwatches emphasized. How they survived the filming of this film is a mystery unto itself. Word has it that Chopard threw a massive party for the premiere of 6 Airways where they showcased many of their fine products. Maybe even Ryan Reynold’s view in 6 Underground?
Which watches have been featured in the movie?
Let us begin with the one which probably caught your eye the quickest using its vibrant contest yellow dial; the Chopard Mille Miglia Classic Chronograph Racing Colors (mention # 168589-3011). This watch is from Chopard’s popular Mille Miglia collection appreciated ample screen-time with a full-screen close-up of this dial. This view is a COSC certified Chronometer with a power reserve of approximately 42 hours. Being a Chopard chronograph watch it’s a stopwatch function controlled by the pushers on each side of the winding crown. While this is most likely the most sporty looking Chopard watch 6 Underground featured, there were really a few of their watches in this volatile film.
Another sporty looking model featured in this film is that the very slick black ops-looking Chopard Mille Miglia GTS Power Control (mention # 168566-3007) This view was seen many times in scenes with covert missions that required a stealthy appearance. This watch has a grey coated instance with a matching gray dial. It features a power reserve indicator and is powered by the on site Chopard Caliber 01.08-C automatic movement which is comprised of 251 components and contains 40 gems using a power reserve of 60 hours.
When Ryan Reynold wasn’t kicking you-know-what and taking names while strapped to the nines with Kevlar and weapons, he dresses up and gets all dapper together with the timeless Chopard L.U.C. XPS 1860 Officer. It sports a officer’s situation back which swings open to show the movement and is shockingly limited to just 100 pieces worldwide. Luckily there is also a non-limited-edition variant of the Chopard L.U.C. XPS 1860 without the Officer’s case back along with the textured pattern on the inner dial. Another difference between the limited edition model and the normal version is that the motion. The Chopard L.U.C. XPS 1860 Officer (Limited Edition) is powered with the L.U.C. Caliber 96.00-L whereas the standard edition runs on the L.U.C. caliber 96.03-L.
The two mechanical movements-feature a 65-hour power reserve allowed by the L.U.C. Twin technologies that allows for 2 stacked barrels. Double barrels and this volatile movie appear to go hand in hand. I am just glad they didn’t crush these precious watches to pieces as they didn’t every thing else in this movie. Glad that some movies show a little appreciation for the dignity of this craft and show a luxurious watch the respect that it deserves
