Jaeger-LeCoultre MC Diving Auto Navy SEALs in 'Act of Valor'

By TLex Jaeger-LeCoultre's MC Diving Auto Navy SEALs hits the big screen AGAIN in the Navy SEALs' flick 'Act of Valor' in which actual active duty U.S. Navy Seals are used as actors. Although the characters they play are fictional, the weapons and tactics they use are the real deal.

The basic plot of the movie revolves around a SEALs team that is dispatched on an international manhunt after discovering a deadly terrorist plot against the United States. Jaeger-LeCoultre lent its support and provided their Master Compressor Diving Automatic Navy SEALs watches for the film. I'm not sure which of the characters were equipped with the JLC watches as there are no screen shots available that allow us to see.

JLC say that the timepieces used contained a new form of SuperLuminova that is particularly visible underwater and in the dark. The watches were powered by Jaeger-LeCoultre's highly accurate in-house automatic movements. The collaboration was developed under a trademark agreement with the U.S. Navy's permission.
