Anybody who saw the movie recently know? Unfortunately I can't find a good screenshot any where, and it's bugging the crap out of me! :-d

Flick's based on a PKD story. All of PKD's heroes were everymen. Having the character wear a watch costing over $100 would be contrary to PKD's intent in my opinion. It's an appropriate piece and a great choice by the production designer.

Its amazing how some people can make even the cheapest watch look killer. I've seen these at my local target/wal mart. It certainly was chosen by the costume/wardrobe people to fit the character of the film.

From the movie trailer Damon plays an average joe kind of character, not the super-hero invincible type... forced to make some hard choices.

Good spot Tempus

You can be surprised on how some things that cost so little look so expensive, it really depends on the wearer and how well they wear it. Some people can make Timexes look great while others can make Rolexes look cheap. Just my .02

just by reading the thread title, I was incline to say whatever the watch company that's sponsoring the movie gives ... but glad I was wrong, good to see they were consistent with his character - and not be a sellout

Great eye - I assumed it was a Timex because the other guy was wearing one and they did the close up - it was clearly a promo.

The point that this leads to - is that he was not an "everyman" in the movie. I don't know about the book or short story, but in the movie he was a New York politician - so that means he would almost certainly have to be rich - and would never have been wearing a $20 watch.
