Nolan and Hamilton have had a good working relationship. I was wondering what watch was used in Tenet. I assumed it was Hamilton again but didn't know what model. I guess this is why:

Check out the Phoibos Proteus models:

I like the brown strap better than the black one but the black one has a meteorite dial. That's just cool. The brown one has a forged carbon dial and is just under $100 cheaper. And while not as cool as space rocks, carbon would match all the carbon Casios I already have. Check out that awesome lume! And with Athena I already have one Greek God in my life, so it's fitting to add another on my wrist.

Pretty much soon after I got obsessed with Island Watch, I started looking at off brands. I was obsessed with those too. But I never got one, because there was more to a watch than just looking a particular way.

You're mental......

I was watching an episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee after I got off the treadmill today, and Seinfeld was wearing what I think is this Breitling.

Hubba freaking hubba. This is the Breitling I lust after. If I hit the lotto, it'll be in my collection. All things considered, it's not stupid expensive, just very expensive at around $6 or $8,000.

People seem to love those vario navitimers. The Seiko and Citizen versions get a ton of love on a lot of the channels I watch. They just don't appeal to me.

Man, we gotta keep working on you.
That is an elegant machine of a timepiece.

If it makes you feel any better Jerry was wearing one of these in another episode.

Sweet! I had that Rangeman. That's the watch I sold that I talked about around here.

I'm not sure what version he had, but he appreciates variety.
It seems like he picks the car for the guest, and the watch for the car.

In my review of my Gravity Master G-Shock I don't think I stressed how cool it is to see the second hand ticking backwards in countdown timer mode.

The main hour and minute hands still tick forward to keep time like normal like normal but the second had goes backwards following the countdown that's set to the subdial. I'm doing laundry now and every week when I wash clothes or do whatever else that needs a countdown I get such a kick out of it.

And of course it hits all 60 ticks perfectly backwards just like it does forwards.

Does it also reverse time in this mode? Do you see time go backwards?
