Keanu Reeves wears a Carl F. Bucherer Manero AutoDate in John Wick and John Wick Chapter 2.
If you don’t know, John Wick (and its sequel) are break out action noir flicks featuring Keanu Reeves as the films' eponymous hero – John Wick.
The films center around retired assassin John Wick – who just wants to be left alone after his wife dies, but keeps getting drawn back into the seedy underworld of assassins. The films take places within 4 days of each other, according to the writers and directors, and really tell one long story.
After Wick’s wife dies, he is given a puppy to keep him company. Between that and his car, he has enough to at least keep him occupied. That is, until some thugs steal his car and kill his dog. Wick goes on a rampage destroying a Russian mob boss and his entire family in revenge. In Chapter 2, word of John’s rampage gets around and causes some folks to come knocking, forcing him to pick up his guns again and shoot his way back to retirement.
Carl F. Bucherer is a Swiss watchmaker based in Lucerne that was founded in 1888. The Manero AutoDate is a beautiful, elegant 42mm watch with a sapphire crystal.
This luxurious watch features the Carl F. Bucherer logo at the 12 o’clock position, and a date complication at the 3 o’clock position. The hands and indices are all made out of rose gold, with the hands having the distinction of being luminescent. The watch also features luminescent dot markers at each of the hour indices.
Because the watch features a self-winding automatic engine (CFB 1950 caliber movement), the second hand sweeps the face instead of ticking. The watch is able to carry a reserve power of 38 hours and is water resistant to 3 atmospheres (about 30 meters, or 100 feet).
The crystal sapphire is scratch resistant and comes with an anti-reflective coating on both sides to help cut out the glare during day use, making the watch easy and comfortable to read.
The strap is brown alligator leather with a rose gold pin and buckle. This beautiful watch is classy, stylish, and perfect for any assassin looking to leave an impression.
