    Pelham 123 Watch Inconsistency

    I have two passions...watches and pointing out movie inconsistencies. I watched "The Taking of Pelham 123" on DVD last night...a good movie by the way. There are four scenes in the movie where an extreme close up of John Travolta's watch takes up the whole screen. It is clearly a silver dialed Breitling Colt. In the scenes where Travolta's watch is seen from a distance it is a black dialed watch with silver sub dials and pushers. How did the producers miss that??
    Chuck Norris doesn't wear a watch...HE decides what time it is.

    I found that odd as well. Go to www.watchesinmovies.info and search for Pelham 123 and you will see the watches in question.

    Some movie prop people I guess does not think that anyone will notice the kind of watches, etc. (We are in VERY minority)

    I posted some time ago where in Terminator 3, Terminator takes the cloths and (presumably the watch) from a male stripper in a small bar. In next scene, he looks at the watch (don't know why a cyborg would need a watch since he probably has internal clock) and it is AP Royal Oak. I highly doubt someone working those small bar as a stripper can afford $20K + watch, but who knows. Probably it was Arnie's watch they just used it in the shot.
    Chronic flipper...

    You have to wonder if this was not a Travolta screw up, seeing as how he is a Brietling "Ambassador"

    The other watch is a Breitling Aeromarine Colt II Auto

    Oh yeah, Watches In Movies - great link!

    I thought the exact same thing as you as to why a cyborg would need a wristwatch AND that the stripper would have a $20,000 watch. It just didn't make sense.

    The Pelham watch thing made me wonder too as I watched it on the big screen.

    The black dialed one appears to be a Breitling Chrono Avenger M1.

    I havent seen the movie, but is it all one continuous scene, or is it possible that he goes home and changes?

    Nope continuous scenes. He looks at his watch and it is a Colt...the very next second and it's the chrono!

    OH MY GOD. THAT IS SO UNBELIEVABLY WEIRD. I AM CURRENTLY WATCHING THAT MOVIE AND JUST NOTICED THAT. It reminded me of watches so I figured I'd check my WUS thread and saw this. HOLY JESUS. HOW WEEEEIRD. They clearly just edited in the Colt scenes later. That might be one of the strangest coincidences of my life.

    yeah when i watched that movie couple weeks back i noticed it.

    mostly likely the colt shots were done after filming to make the audience notice the time in regards to the storyline.

    I have a feeling there might be a slightly different agenda for Breitling.
