You’re probably familiar with the Denzel Washington film adaptation, and potentially even own a Suunto Core Ultimate Black like that worn in the Equalizer movies. But, have you taken the time to pay tribute to the original 80’s series, also titled, The Equalizer?
There’s a lot of great old school action in the 5 seasons of The Equalizer series. Edward Woodward plays Robert McCall who atones for his past by helping others that find him through his newspaper ads: “Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer. 212 555 4200.”
There’s certainly less action and violence in the original TV series, but some have argued the story and plot of the original surpasses anything the first two Equalizer movies have offered.
The watches worn by the main characters in each provides a nice reflection on the different takes the directors have taken. The elegant, simple gold time piece worn by Edward Woodward suits his refined character. Where as the digital military style watch worn by Denzel fits his precise and practical portrayal of Robert McCall.
Who wore it better – Edward or Denzel? Let me know in the comments below.
