Ben Affleck is a truly enigmatic figure. He’s enough of an A-lister that we saw fit to launch an investigative report on his mystery AAA Canada replica watches, a gift from J-Lo – but he’s more than tabloid fodder. He’s a genuinely accomplished Hollywood figure who’s done everything from co-writing an Oscar-winning screenplay to directing an Oscar-winning drama to donning the cape and mask as Batman.
In 2014, while preparing to take on the role of Bruce Wayne, Affleck starred in the twisty David Fincher thriller Gone Girl. Jacked with Dark Knight muscles, he plays Nick Dunne, whose wife has just mysteriously disappeared. Based on the Gillian Flynn novel of the same name (with a script penned by the author herself), Gone Girl is a quintessentially dark Fincher flick. And as a magazine writer turned bar owner, Affleck wears a colorful classic icon of watchmaking – 40mm steel sport 1:1 best fake Rolex watches that looks positively puny on his pumped-up wrists.
Why We’re Watching
It’s been a remarkably strange year for movies. In the wake of COVID-19’s continued presence, the release cycle has been thrown completely out of whack. Movies have been delayed once, twice, and thrice – appearing on streaming services in conjunction with short theatrical runs. There are so many new films on every single streaming platform that it’s hard to keep track of them all, or know if they’re worth watching. One such movie – directed by last week’s featured actor, George Clooney – is The Tender Bar, a coming-of-age story about a young boy who forges a bond with a bartending uncle played by Affleck.
That got us thinking about Gone Girl, in which Dunne’s world collapses after his wife vanishes. Her story becomes national news, and he becomes a criminal suspect. But he soon has reason to believe he’s being set-up. All the while, in both flashback and present day, he wears cheap replica Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 16710 watches with a red and blue Pepsi bezel. While there’s plenty of mistaking to be had throughout the movie, there’s no mistaking this watch.
Dunne is a Missouri boy who becomes a New York writer bro, and he already has the luxury Rolex GMT-Master II copy watches when he meets his wife Amy (played by Rosamund Pike) in 2005. He continues to wear it through their entire relationship, all the way up to present day, when the film takes place (meaning 2014). That means, at a minimum, Dunne is a one-watch guy for nearly a decade. I’ll always be jealous of a one-watch guy, and the best replica Rolex Pepsi GMT watches is a fantastic choice for a monogamous wristwear relationship.
The high quality super clone Rolex GMT-Master II ref. 16710 watches is a watch in historical limbo. It was the last of the pre-ceramic GMT-Masters and, in many ways, is still a modern watch despite commanding prices that would suggest it’s vintage. It’s the second version of the GMT-Master II, the successor to the 16760 which ran from 1982-1988. Unlike the 16760, it had quite a long lifespan, touching three different decades, from 1989 – 2007. Hallmarks of the Rolex fake watches wholesale online are its aluminum bezel insert with the red and blue coloring, meant to help differentiate between day and night – an AM/PM indicator displayed in a 24-hour scale. It has a glossy black dial, with small applied markers (compared to Rolex “Maxi Dial” markers) with white gold surrounds. It’s fitted to the classic, fully brushed Oyster bracelet with a double locking enclosure system, and it’s sized at an incredibly wearable 40mm.
Dunne is a men’s fashion writer for an undisclosed magazine in the film. While I don’t know his salary, it’s not hard to believe he could have managed to afford such a timepiece in the early aughts. Assuming the Rolex replica watches for sale was relatively new to him when he met Amy in 2005, the watch would have cost somewhere in the ballpark of $4,000. Adjusting for inflation, that amount of money (not the watch itself) would be worth about $6,000 here in 2022. Compare that to the price of a new, ceramic Pepsi Bezel Rolex GMT-Master II fake watches shop site today, which is $10,550 (and, of course, more on the aftermarket). Back then, buying a Rolex GMT would’ve been similar to purchasing an Omega Seamster Professional 300m today. Not cheap, but also not otherworldly. And a great watch.
When We’re Watching
The Swiss made Rolex replica watches makes an appearance basically from the jump. After an opening credits sequence that doubles as a tour of fictional North Carthage, Missouri – accompanied by a propulsive score by Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor – we find Dunne on his way to the bar he operates, which is tended by his sister (played by Carrie Coon). It’s actually called “The Bar.” The two begin to play a board game while Dunne sips his morning coffee, reminiscing about the days when his marriage was good [00:07:37]. He’s wearing an open blue button-down shirt with his sleeves rolled up, exposing the Oyster bracelet and the unmistakable Pepsi bezel.
Later, after many a plot twist, Dunne meets with his sister and a high-profile attorney played by Tyler Perry. While he’s taking advice from his team, seated at a table covered in tabloid magazines reporting on Amy’s return [02:16:17], we get a sharp view of the 16710 that, today, he could probably barter for all those legal fees.
