Robert Downey Jr is not just one of the most famous actors on Hollywood, but he is also an ambassador for the prestigious watch brand jaeger LeCoultre. In fact, the movie star has been seen numerous times wearing these very expensive watches at festivals, movie premieres or in his recent films.
If in the first Iron Man movie, Robert Downey Jr was all about Bvlgari watches, in Iron Man 2 Jaeger LeCoultre stole the spotlight. The brand has surely foreseen the opportunity of a product placement. After all, what better way to promote your luxury watches than to show them off on the wrist of one of the most popular celebrity? Iron Man 2 was a big hit and millions of fans across the globe have instantly fallen in love with the Jaeger Lecoultre watch worn by the main character.
The sophisticated and stylish look of the Jaeger LeCoultre timepieces used for the Iron Man 2 film was a perfect match. The models selected for the movie were very diverse and appealing, and surely the decision wasn’t of Jaeger Lecoultre. Usually the film producer, stylists and actors decide which jewelry or outfits are appropriated for a certain movie.
In Iron Man 2 we notice a nice collection of very cool and technical Jaeger Le Coultre “Wrist Armor” pieces. One of the most notable watches that feature on the wrist of Tony Stark is the AMVOX3 Tourbillon GMT watch available both in special platinum and ceramic versions. The third watch that appears in the movie is the model designed to celebrate the racing partnership between Aston Martin and Jaeger Lecoultre. This timepiece has a small dial for seconds, a second time zone function with a quick “east”/west” time adjustment and a periphery date. Considering the style of this watch, it is probably the most appropriate model for the movie. There are two other Jaeger LeCoultre watches that are worn in the movie, but these are more classical. And the list doesn’t end here!
There is also a very exclusive and rare Jaeger LeCoultre Master Grand Tourbillon 1833 model. This is a very impressive tourbillon watch with a periphery date indicator and regulator style second time zone. This traditional and elegant piece has a particular charm and distinction. And the last one is the Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso Grande 985.
Even though Rober Downey Jr’s movie is destined for the masses, the Jaeger LeCoultre watches he is wearing aren’t. These timepieces are incredibly pricy. The less expensive one is the Reverso Grande which costs about $25,000 and is made out of solid gold. The other models are priced at $65,000 or more. Of course, everyone will appreciate the watches and dream of having them, but only a few fans will actually afford buying one.
