There are NO SPOILERS contained within this article – happy reading!

I just caught this summer’s blockbuster, The Meg, an entertaining B-movie that’s loosely based on Steve Alten’s novel of the same name.

Because I’m shameless dive watch nerd my eyes were naturally peeled for any dive watch appearances.

Carl F. Bucherer had an official product placement relating to Chinese actress, Li Bigbing’s character, Suyin, who wore one of their lovely Stainless steel and RG Patravi ScubaTec divers.

But what was the Stath wearing? Jason Statham didn’t disappoint; he was casually rocking a very special Limited Edition IWC Aquatimer Galapagos watch.

The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition La Cumbre Volcano is a 500 piece Limited Edition with an MSRP of circa 10700USD.

So what else did I spot? I could have sworn Dr. Heller, a character played by Australian actor, Robert Taylor was wearing a Jaeger Le-Coultre Master Compressor Diving GMT on Compressor Velcro strap.

I won’t be able to confirm this until I watch the film again after its digital release so I can freeze-frame that scene (what, like you’ve never done that, before?!) ;)

There were some other watches, but those were the ones that I saw. Did you see anymore? Was I right about the JLC?
