Watches that appear in movies are more than just handsome accessories; they are tied to the storyline and add depth to the characters. In the past, watches appearing in movies often became signs of serendipity - the right watch strapped to the right (handsome) wrist. Later, watches in movies became a carefully orchestrated product positioning for the studios. But however they came about, some of the luxury replica watches that have appeared on the wrists of big-name Hollywood actors have become stars in their own right. The silver screen is the best billboard in the world. Not only do you have the visual aspect, but you also have the time to explain the product, associate it with the ideal movie star, and even (in some cases) give it a distinct personality that the audience will always associate with the watch. Much can be said about a character through their choice (or anti-choice) of the watch. Throughout the movie era, many characters have worn watches and fashions and have enjoyed unprecedented success or longevity as a result. Savvy product placement can make a brand a fortune, but more than that, it has a real and tangible emotional impact on our cultural background. What we particularly love about the best replica watches on the silver screen is the sense of awe they inspire. Avid collectors love to go back in time and see these beautiful (now vintage) - pieces. Often, these watches have even inspired an entire generation to collect them. So here's our round-up of some of the most iconic movie watches you may have missed. Patrick Bateman, the protagonist of American Psycho, has become an unlikely pop-culture icon. Despite being a psychopathic killer, Christian Bale's character is stylish and well-groomed. So it's no surprise that moviegoers paid special attention to his watch, a two-tone 36mm Rolex Datejust reference 16013 with a Jubilee bracelet and tapestry dial, in the movie. The story takes place in New York in the 1980swhen two-tone watches forged from stainless steel and gold were very popular. Since its release in 2000, American Psycho has become a true cult classic. So much so that to this day, the Rolex watch worn by Bateman is known among many collectors as the "American Psycho Rolex". Well, it's an obvious choice, but still, it shouldn't be forgotten! In the Apollo 13 movie, Tom Hanks wears an Omega Speedmaster - the official NASA-certified watch for space flight. It was this watch that the astronauts actually wore when Apollo 13 went into space, including NASA's Gemini 4 mission and the historic moon landing mission. Matthew McConaughey stars as the uprooted Mark Hanna in this 2013 classic. Hannah is a perfectly played exemplar of the era. As a genius, his methods and approach are ...... unconventional, to say the least. The people who appear in the film are very wretched in many senses. You need to be a little wild to survive in that dog-eat-dog environment. The Rolex Datejust is a flawless badge of power, but for a character like Mark Hanna, it also works as a disguise. A luxurious watch and a smart suit can go a long way toward earning someone's trust. One of the smartest investments he's ever made... ... We end this list with a real curveball. Few no doubt Natalie Portman's ability to play any role, but her performance as astronaut Lucy Cola is truly remarkable. The Oscar winner shines in the role, as does the unusual-yes-authentic Omega Speedmaster X-33 titanium fake watch she wears on her wrist. The film is an exploration of the mental state of an astronaut who does and sees more than many mortals. Perhaps this explains her somewhat oddball choice, but this unusual analog/digital hybrid quartz watch is indeed a model worn by astronauts due to the high level of functionality it offers. While it is far less recognizable than the classic Speedmaster Moonwatch, the X-33's appearance in the movie is highly accurate and only adds to the authenticity of this must-see film.
