Taken 2: Watch Used To Get Out Of Sticky Situation

Good day watch world. Sorry for the hiatus. I had a busy week and weekend. I finally got the chance to see the movie Taken II and it was a classic super sleuth, kick…… uh….butt adventure. If you haven’t seen it and you plan to, I suggest you not read this blog because I’m going to talk about a specific scene in the movie. Liam Neeson‘s character and his wife ” Lenore” get taken in Istanbul, Turkey. They’re snatched by some goons on a revenge driven mission and placed in a van with their hands bound and hoods over their heads. The part that caught my attention in this scene was Liam’s use of his watch as a telemeter in order to determine the distance of where the bad guys were taking them. Using the ticking on his watch he counted how long it took to get to the first turn. Then the next turn. How long it took to get to a spot where there was a bird in someone’s shop. All of this was done while tied up with his face covered by the hood. Once his captors got them to the location where they were being held, he calls his daughter back at the hotel using some miniature spy type cell phone. He tells her to pull out a map and draw a circle around the location of the hotel using a certain amount of kilometers. Then he tells her to grab one of his grenades from his field kit and throw it in a safe direction. He was able to hear the blast in order to determine how close they were from the hotel. Real trade craft stuff. Long story short, he was able to tell his daughter where they were using a form of telemetry with his watch. What kind of watch did he have you ask? There was too much action going on for me to see. Any way it was cool and I’m a geek…..I know.

Good Monday watch world. I’m sure you guys have enjoyed many of the movies that have been released this year. I took the time to try to find out what time pieces were being worn on the big screen. Samuel L. Jackson wore a Piaget Polo white gold chronograph in ” The Avengers”. Tom Cruise donned a Tudor Heritage Chronograph in “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”.  Will Smith wore Hamilton Ventura while chasing ET in “Men In Black 3″. The Active Duty Navy Seals in ” Act of Valor” put Jaeger-Le Coultre watches to the test. Jeremy Renner of course wore the IWC ‘s Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph while taking on the role of Aaron Cross in ” The Bourne Legacy”. I mean, the list goes on but I wanted to highlight some of my favorites. Oh! How could I forget about the cast of “Battleship” and Luminox.
