What Kind of Watch does Denzel Washington Wear in the Equalizer 2

What kind of watch does Denzel wear in The Equalizer 2?

We remember seeing Denzel Washington wearing a Suunto Core Ultimate Black in the first installment of The Equalizer. But there has been some heated controversy over whether the watch he wears in the second movie is actually the same model.

In the Equalizer 2, the mysterious and elusive Robert McCall (Denzel) comes back to deliver the vigilante justice expected. This time, however, McCall’s past cuts especially close to home when thugs kill Susan Plummer — his best friend and former colleague. Now out for revenge, McCall must take on a crew of highly trained assassins who’ll stop at nothing to destroy him.

We get to see him using his stopwatch to check how long to complete his kills as he does in the original. Upon closer inspection, it does indeed look like the same trusty watch he used in the first movie – the  Suunto Core Ultimate Black. However, the stopwatch feature of Denzel’s watch looks different from the original Suunto. Here is a nice video that explains the differences between the original version and the one shown in the movie.

The watch itself is made to keep pace with a very energetic lifestyle. It features an array of gadgets perfect for those of us that are in the military, are super active, or have secret aspirations to stop assassins… The built in compass, depth measurement, altimeter & barometer will all come in handy during your (and my) next secret mission. The sleek black design camouflages well with most surroundings (other colors are also available). We certainly think it’s one of the better digital watches available today. So, despite the controversies over whether the stopwatch feature does actually belong to the Suunto Core or whether it’s digitally enhanced, we still think the Suunto Core Ultimate Black is a great option to consider for your next athletic watch. Vigilant justice is optional!!

What kind of watch does Denzel Washington wear in The Equalizer?

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.
