    I think a watch can say a lot about a person. Movie markets know this and use it to help you form opinions or buffer the image of a character.

    Why? ... The movie's producers get paid by the watch brand for the character to do so.

    Most successful men wear watches, most characters portrayed in films are successful. Additionally, watch companies pay money for product placement in films.

    My favourite example being the 'Omega' scene from Casino Royal.

    I love the comment "'I'm pretty sure she threw up in her mouth a little bit after delivering that line'. It does look it!
