In the television film Wizard of Lies, Robert De Niro starred as Bernard Madoff, the man responsible for the world’s largest Ponzi scheme in history. The film was released in 2017 and the press lead up to its release went by without us noticing anything in particular. Until now.
During a press conference for the film, Robert De Niro was wearing a timepiece from noted independent manufacturer F.P Journe. It is nice to see a watch that most people wouldn’t recognize if they weren’t into watches, on the wrist of such an accomplished actor
Which F.P Journe? A Chronometre Bleu.
A close up of the watch on his wrist.
The Chronometre Bleu is a time only watch that is very eye catching due to its stunning blue dial. To produce the unique colour takes some effort and many dials are rejected as they are not up to standard. The case isn’t your usual stainless steel but tantalum which provides a nice contrast to the blue hue of the dial.
That concludes this Spot the Watch.
