    Saw Tom Hanks wearing a G today!

    In the new release I saw today, CAPTAIN PHILLIPS, Tom Hanks wears a G-Shock. Couldn't tell which model.

    How was the movie? Looks pretty intense. Knowing Tom Hanks, I'm sure he did a terrific job.

    As for the watch... I looked at a few on-line photos. Unfortunately none are close-up or dead-on. But from what I can see, it looks like your every day run of the mill DW-6900. Nothing glamorous. Sure would have been cool if CASIO won over the producers to have Tom Hanks wear a Rangeman.

    I concur with the Dw6900 assessment. I really want to see this movie.

    Movie is INTENSE!! And I'm a ship captain. Phillips and I are in the same officer union, but I've never met him. We work for different companies.

    Tom Hanks deserves at least an Oscar nomination. I'll not spoil it anymore than that. Go see it.

    I understand and they did NOT use any CG graphics. It's all filmed. And beautifully shot on a real sister ship of the Alabama.
    Looked like a ton of US Navy cooperation too.

    Gravity is fun too, saw it last week, but in 2D. No Gs in it. Other fancy oversize watches.

    Reviewers recommend seeing Gravity in 3D, so I have to go see it again.

    I remember 1 or 2 years ago I saw in a news paper ''Tom Hanks filming new movie about Somali pirates...'' or something like that and first thing I noticed was the DW-6900 on his wrist

    He couldn't wear Rangeman because it didn't exist few years ago lol

    Looking forward to seeing it in near future.

    Rangeman is a perfect watch for a sea captain - it could tell him the elevation (zero ft above sea level), and no need to use all that pesky electronic guidance equipment/backup sextant/or look at the sun or stars to determine direction.

    I was at the movies to see something else about 6 months ago and they showed previews of Cap Phillips. I spotted the dw6900 on Tom Hanks wrist immediately. I'm going today to see it. It's getting very good reviews so far.
