Speaking of Movie watches. I was recently watching Showtimes new series "Penny Dreadful" , which bring together Gothic novel figures together in 1890's London. About eight minute in there was a scene where Eva Green's character (Vanessa Ives) meets Josh Hartnett's character (Ethan Chandler) in a London pub to enlist his aid. Just prior to her meeting him (at minute 08:00) Chandler pulls out a hunter case pocket watch to take a look at the time. On the inside of the front cover was an engraving from his father, but much more interesting to me was the watch itself. This seems to be a high end production with good attention to detail, but they failed in the watch. After freezing the video I found it was a cheap moon phase, date Jean Jacot quartz watch . Ok call me anal but this is the kind of minutia I love finding in TV and film. The watch had a sweep second hand and the stilted movement of a quartz. Harnett's character is from the US so they could have probably found a cheaper vintage Waltham or Elgin HC for the scene. Still the show was quite entertaining, creepy and good effects.

Authenticated as been in someones ass???
Lol, yes.
I was referring to th 16thC Verge, I should have made that clear.

As to the original watch from Pulp Fiction, I seem to remember that when the watch was shown
in the scene that Bruce Willis killed John Travolta as he returned to his flat to collect the watch,
the watch shown was signed Rolex.
I don't have the film so can't check on this, perhaps my memory is playing tricks.

Is the new name for the Pulp Fiction split thread - 'life imitating fiction' or 'fiction imitating life' ?!!! S

I can check the movie scene when I get back from my daily 'gardening leave' coffee, walk, falafel sandwich and glass of white wine. 88 days to go and I'm already bored !!! Cheers...S

@ James A: I particularly like the tasteful combination of pink-chequered trousers and blue shirt with white transverse striping :-d
