‘The Nice Guys’ is a 2016 comedy/thriller that arrived and departed our shores in the Middle East with little fanfare. That’s a bit of a shame because it was a genuinely entertaining film starring Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling and several other well known actors. The movie is set in Los Angeles in the 70s, and we spotted a couple of cool watches, one of which was an Omega Speedmaster.
Independent watchmaker F.P. Journe has just announced a limited edition timepiece, which will become available exclusively at each of its 10 worldwide boutiques, for their respective 10th anniversaries. The first two cities to receive the new timepiece will be Hong Kong and Tokyo.
December 2014 was when Jean-Claude Biver stepped in as CEO of Tag Heuer, and since then the brand has focused on offering accessible timepieces that tug at heart strings. It has been a successful formula and now, with the introduction of the Carrera Mikrograph Anniversary Edition: 1916-2016, the brand is proving that it can do haute horology while keeping its focus on value.
