Robert De Niro sports Breguet watch in Limitless

First published: 16-05-2011

Movie fans who have headed along to the cinema recently to catch the new action flick Limitless may have spotted a Breguet watch throughout the showing.

That is because the Breguet Classique Automatic 5197BA can be seen in a close-up shot of Robert De Niro's character Carl Van Loon, according to Watch ID.

Some of the features of this timepiece include an elegant white-gold case, as well as an 18-carat silvered gold dial, which displays time via Roman numeral markings.

A date window sneaking in at six o'clock adds to the fashion watch's practicality functions, while a self-winding movement and a balance wheel also feature in the design.

Breguet, which has been in the watchmaking industry since 1775, finishes the timepiece off with a stylish black leather strap.

Robert De Niro stars in Limitless as Van Loon, who is a wealthy investor, with the US thriller also featuring Bradley Cooper and Abbie Cornish. The movie is based on the novel The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn.
