Without point out the obvious have you ever noticed that most male characters in movies always wear a watch . Wondered if theres more reasons then the obvious reasons
To tell time, of course.why male characters always where watches in movies ?
Who knows ... Perhaps the character received it as a gift from a loved one. Or, perhaps at one time he dated a psychotic but rich girl who put him through Hell; but bought him a nice watch that he still enjoys wearing.To tell time, of course.
More than that, I think it is an accessory to the "costume." Just another way for the character to be defined. I noticed Statham wearing a Panerai in the Transporter movies and it seems like something that character would wear. Jolie wore a Tissot T-Touch with compass and barometer in the Lara Croft movies, and again, seems to reinforce the character.
Sometimes, however, the watch is just what the actor wears when he shows up. I noticed the Spencer character on Psyche wearing an Omega Planet Ocean. The character can't come close to affording that. For anybody who notices, it is very out of place. Of course, this is the same show that films in Vancouver, BC and pretends to be in Santa Barbara, CA.
