Macgyver was most commonly seen wearing the Timex Camper Watch.If you were a kid in the seventies, eighties, and early 90s, you probably loved Macgyver. The guy was known for being able to build anything he needed out of whatever was available to aid him in whatever situation he got trapped in. This ability of his has spawned all manner of ridiculous meme across the internet and even its own popular phrase: To “Macgyver” something together. Angus Macgyver was a secret government agent and scientist who solved problems with his swiss army knife, scientific resourcefulness, and a limitless supply of moxie.
The watch that was featured on his wrist most frequently was then called the Timex Military Field watch, but has since been rebranded as the “Timex Camper Watch“. The Camper Watch is a simple, 35mm plastic case watch with a nylon strap. The watch features quartz movement and an analog display powered by a single battery. Perhaps the most confusing aspect of this little timepiece is that it has a water glyph clearly printed on it, and is listed as a “rugged outdoor watch”, but is absolutely not water resistant. This is a perfect watch if you’re looking to dress up as Macgyver, or if you just need something quick and simple to get you through the day.
Denzel Washington wears a Suunto Core Ultimate Black in The Equalizer. The Equalizer is a movie adaptation of a novel by the same name starring Denzel Washington and Chloe Moretz. Denzel plays Robert McCall, a former spy and hitman who faked his own death and quietly retired. He spends his nights reading at a small diner and engaging the patrons in conversation, one of whom is Alina, a prostitute. The Russian mob boss that “owns” Alina beats her so bad that she’s put in the ICU, sending McCall on a mission of revenge. It is an absolutely amazing movie and spawned a solid sequel (including a controversy over the exact watch worn by Denzel).
The Suunto Core Ultimate Black is a men’s digital athletic watch. The watch itself is made to keep pace with a very energetic lifestyle. It has a built in altimeter, barometer, and compass, making it a perfect choice if you’re in the military, or if you’re a retired assassin with a heart of gold. The design itself is sleek and modern and can be found in various colors (if you so desire). The watch is digital, however, which means that you will eventually have to replace the battery – though hopefully, the lithium battery it comes with will last a long while.
