The Company Men film shows Breitling watch

First published: 19-08-2010

A Breitling watch has been spotted worn by Ben Affleck in his new movie The Company Men.

Though it is not known exactly which of the company's models it is, Watch-id report that it is definitely in the Windrider range.

The website has even cut down the options possible to a Chronomat, Chrono Cockpit or Blackbird timepiece, as a chronometer, steel case and steel bracelet are all clearly seen in the film, which also stars Kevin Costner and Tommy Lee Jones.

The Chronomat is the leading model of Brietling's collection, which has made watches since 1884 and has a diameter of 43.70mm and water resistance of 300 metres. It is available in steel, two tone steel, steel and rose gold or 18K gold finishes.

Also available in all four finishes, the Chrono Cockpit has a smaller diameter of 39mm and its water resistance also decreases compared to the Chronomat, at only 100 metres. However, it is highlighted by its "sleek lines and numerous subtle details".

Finally, the Blackbird was designed by the company as a special series to its popular Chronomat timepiece and is finished by either a polished or satin-finish steel case. It has the same diameter and water resistance details as the watch it is based on.
