The global COVID-19 pandemic still hasn’t gone away, but things are slowly starting to return to normal with the rollout of vaccines around the world. It is nice to see crowds returning for events such as the recent Euro 2020 football tournament.
The 2021 edition of the Cannes Film Festival was also back in full swing, although staged two months later than usual after having been canceled altogether in 2020.
American actor and comedian Bill Murray, best known for his roles in films including Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, and Lost in Translation, was in attendance. He co-starred in the Wes Anderson-directed The French Dispatch along with Benicio Del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, and Timothée Chalamet.
The film, which premiered on July 12 at Cannes 2021 and garnered a nine-minute standing ovation from attendees, also stars Owen Wilson, Léa Seydoux, and Frances McDormand among others in an outstanding ensemble cast. It is scheduled to open on October 22, 2021.
Murray stood out during a photoshoot for his, shall we say, rather colorful clothing, including an eye-catching shirt sporting a plethora of patterns. Horology-wise he was wearing two timepieces, double wristing in WIS parlance. Each of the watches worn is quartz powered, but completely different in appearance and pedigree.
On his right wrist Murray sported a Timex Indiglo Easy Reader with a white dial, while on his left wrist he wore the evergreen perfect UK sale fake Cartier Tank. As its name suggests, the Timex Indiglo Easy Reader is a watch with very good legibility; its oversized Arabic numerals make it easy for the wearer to read the time, even at night thanks to the Indiglo lume function.
The Swiss made replica Cartier Tank on the other hand is a classical timepiece, its place cemented in the imaginary horology hall of fame thanks to a novel case design based on World War I tanks. Since its release in 1917, the century-old watch has remained a firm favorite among celebrities, royalty, and just about everyone else.
A festival photographer gifted us with a very crisp closeup shot of Murray’s Tank, making model identification easier: Murray wore a super clone Tank Must in stainless steel. Visible marks on the case lead me to believe it has been worn rather frequently.
Since the Timex is set to 6:00 in the photos, and the AAA best Cartier replica UK is set to 12:00, it stands to reason that Murray might have been using the two watches to each represent a time zone. France is exactly six hours ahead of the United States’ east coast.
