    Thumbs Up My New Watch Will Appear in 2012 the movie!

    Just bought my Mark XVI last week and recently found out that it will be appearing on 2012! How cool is this?!, lol. I'm definitely going to see this film, not just to see my watch but I've always been into the apocalyptic genre

    my thread: https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=323194

    "In Roland Emmerich’s new action film “2012″, the end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar brings a global cataclysm that threatens the survival of the human race. John Cusack stars as Jackson Curtis, an IWC owner who uses his Mark XVI pilot’s watch as collateral to secure seats on a small plane, saving himself and his family.

    Commenting on the partnership, Benoit de Clerck, President of IWC North America said, “In each of his films, and especially in 2012, Roland Emmerich has shown not only an impressive skill for story, but also incredible technical capabilities to realize the visual effects he’s envisioned. IWC shares his passion for innovation, precision, fine details, and craftsmanship, so we’re thrilled to play a role in the film and support its release.”

    Apocalypse and sweeping special effects are Emmerich’s forte – he directed “Independence Day” and he produced “The Day After Tomorrow”. “2012″ also stars Amanda Peet, Danny Glover, and Wood Harrelson. The film is directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Roland Emmerich & Harald Kloser. The film is produced by Harald Kloser, Mark Gordon, and Larry Franco. “2012″ opens November 13.

    I never knew that! Thanks for telling me. A quick Google showed me that Tom was wearing a Mark XV in Vanilla Sky. Harrison Ford also wore the Mark XV in Firewall!

    Succesfull product placement by IWC.
    My only problem is - sure a salesperson would even know what an IWC watch was!

    I would have to agree with you there. Rolex I would understand, even Tag Heuer, but probably not IWC, IMHO.

    I put my IWC down at a watch shop to try on a watch, then the sales person quoted $1800 for the price of the watch I was interested and then proceeded to show me their "Value" lines as though I would not be able to afford that watch. Would not happen if I had on at that time my Sub.

    On not so watch related note.

    Why is it that in the movies now a days seem to predict the end of the world as being rather very close? (3 yrs from now?)

    I mean, older movies tend to predict the end of the world being at least 20-30-100 years from contemporary. It seems that now a days most of the "Apocalyptic" movies tend to be putting the end of the world to VERY near future.

    Is it because people feel that way more?

    I have read a magazine article about the rising popularity of apocalyptic genre movies. Basically they said due to the increased level of risk (and fear) in our daily lives due to terrorism and economic recession etc. People actually enjoys seeing the end of the world, lol. I guess it sorts of relieve their stress. I'm no psychologist but I'm certain there is a scientific explanation.
