    Does anyone else sometimes watch movies just for the watches?

    I'm guilty of this... I, on occasion, will watch a movie just because of a watch that makes an appearance in it.

    Am I alone? What's your favorite "watch" movie?

    If I ever get that bad off, put me in a "home" and load me up on Haldol.

    Its always a delight to see cool pieces but sometime it could be a turn off. Like seeing the DSSD in Argo or supercase Gold GMT master in WOWS. Its the detail that counts, right?

    i watched that Keanu Reeves "Constantine" tripe just for the Oris closeups. :) I have successfully trained every girlfriend I've had since 2005 to spot movie watches, so they jump up and scream "PAUSE! ….okay, i give up, what is it?" totes adorb.
    I've spent my money on women, whisky and watches. The rest I just wasted.

    I can see they trained you to say "totes adorb" .
    I don't watch movies just for the watches but I do stop them and go frame by frame so I can get a closer look.
    as well as music vids, commercials, and everything else I can.
    I also habitually look at watches within eyesight.

    Not really movies, but loved watching Entourage to see what watches all the characters would be wearing in each episode, especially Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) (but I enjoyed watching the show itself, not just for the watches).
