    Confused Need Help: 1980 American Gigolo Watch??

    Hi Everyone,

    Not sure if this is where I should pose my question but here goes... I am always intrigued by the watches Hollywood picks for their stars in movies.

    Normally I am pretty good at spotting one BUT I can not figure out 1980's American Gigolo with Richard Gere. It had a gold bezel, square face, leather strap. I know Armani made all of his clothes for that movie but as far as the watch not sure if it was an Armani watch or if Armani watches were even around then?

    I know 1980 is going a ways back but any insight would be appreciated! I was thinking maybe Rolex but the square face Rolex I know is circa 1950's and he would always wear his watch facing inside in the movie. Doesn't make sense to wear a collectible 30 plus year Rolex like that for a gigolo. You'd think he would show off such a beautiful timepiece?

    Thanks guys :)

    LOL not exactly but funny reply... And yes, the movie is a true classic. Looking at photos of the movie posters he is definitely wearing a Rolex not sure if it the datejust or explorer but it is a Rolex.
    As far as the watch in the movie itself, still anyone's guess. I will try and somehow get a wristshot from the movie but not sure if that will help since it wont be a real close up. Thanks for trying!
