History’s taught us there are a few super spy essentials: a code name, impeccable aim, and a suitcase full of international passports, to start. Oh, and killer replica watches wholesale. When Ian Fleming created James Bond, he gave him a “heavy Rolex Oyster Perpetual on an expanding bracelet.” Bond eventually became, as Daniel Craig said, an Oh-mee-guh man. John Wick wouldn’t mow down his enemies without a Carl F. Bucherer on his wrist. The first Kingsman movie even scored a watch collaboration, with the brand Bremont, out of the gate. Now, in The Gray Man, Ryan Gosling’s character Sierra Six is a new spy with a new type of watch: Swiss made fake Tag Heuer Carrera Three Hands watches.
It’s not hard to puzzle out how high quality replica watches became a fixture in spy movies. Often, they can conceal a weapon inside a seemingly quotidian object. Bond’s watches have included hidden buzzsaws and lasers. The Kingsmen shot darts out of their Bremonts. And when they’re not helping the wearer out of a bind, perfect copy watches are critical to maintaining a suave, elegant, and tasteful Spy Vibe. “[Watches are important to spies] because every second is a life or death moment in the world of these movies,” Gosling told a group of reporters at an event the week before the movie’s premiere. “It’s all about precision and when something happens. The timing of everything is everything.”
For Gosling, best replica watches are an essential tool in his character-development toolbox. . “Before every film a prop person comes up to you and asks what kind of watch your character wears,” he said. “It’s not something I had ever really thought of before that.” For his 2006 movie Half Nelson, in which Gosling plays a junior high school teacher struggling with drugs, he wanted a calculator watch with a broken strap. In Drive, where Gosling helms a getaway car, his character straps super clone watches online on the wheel of his car because “he didn’t trust whatever clock was in the car,” the actor said.
His 1:1 replica watches in The Gray Man is packed with similar symbolism, according to Gosling. Originally, Six was supposed to wear a different watch. But, Gosling said, “When I first tried on the brand that was intended, it was way too big. It was really impractical. It felt like something a spy would never wear.” He asked Tag to send a few pieces—Gosling is, of course, an ambassador for the brand—just two days before filming was set to start. (Talk about a time-critical mission!) The AAA fake watches that ended up in The Gray Man is purposefully simple, without lasers and buzzsaws. “His character is pragmatic.” Gosling said. “He’s an analog hero in a digital world. He doesn’t have any gadgets. He just has his wits and human ingenuity.” And his watch.
Even by civilian standards, the top replica TAG Heuer Carrera Three Hands watches Gosling wears is simple. It sticks to the simplest possible design: the most complicated function this watch performs is telling you what the date is. And on Gosling’s version, the silver dial, silver hands, and silver hour indices almost blend into the face. Blending, of course, is the purpose here. “There are like nine action set pieces in this movie and he’s on the run and there are multiple different identities all wildly different from one another,” Gosling said. “But the watch stays the same through the course of the movie. So what could work in all those different scenarios—not clash or stick out or feel incongruous with what I was doing? Also, what could realistically survive some of these situations I was in: car crashes, train crashes, so many crashes.”
And while on-screen symbolism is nice, off-screen profits are even better. Dressing a spy is big business in the watch world. The Rolex Submariner reference 6358 is simply known now as “the Bond,” because Sean Connery wore it during all four of his turns at 007. Similarly, the Omega Pierce Brosnan wore is known as the “Bond Seamaster.” Omega now turns out special editions of Bond’s luxury fake watches for the many, many people interested in dressing like a spy. Brands like Bremont and Tag Heuer lined up to be part of the world of Kingsman. But what both Connery’s Submariner and Gosling’s Three Hands have in common—and what makes them special—is that they are simply time tellers and nothing more. Connery’s Submariner was especially momentous because it predicted how stainless steel sport replica watches shop site would be worn decades later: He wore his while diving, but also tucked under the sleeve of a tuxedo. Gosling’s watch shows off even greater variety. Whether he’s stabbing people in a ballroom in a red suit or tracksuited sucking on a food wrapper, his watch is along for the ride.
