bullet train watches

The movie Bullet Train is a feast of some big flex watches with some action scenes. In the patently ridiculous and new action flick, Brad Pitt plays the role of a contract criminal who is on a simple snatch-and-grab job to secure a briefcase containing $10 million, and the case is located on a bullet train. Starring several famed big celebrities like Brad Pitt, who is also the 3rd highest paid movie star of 2023, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Joe King, Channing Tatum, Sandra Bullock, Bad Bunny, etc., the American comedy thriller movie highlights various luxurious watches. Brad Pitt, the Breitling ambassador, wears Breitling AVI Ref. 765 1953 Re-Edition, and his co-star Aaron Taylor Johnson wears a Rolex watch. The role of a deadly female assassin that is played by Joey King has been seen flexing the Cartier Tank Solo timepiece.

In the film, Pitt kicks some serious rivals, and he does so by wearing his expensive metal vintage revival from the blue-chip independent wristwatch brand. Watch enthusiasts must have noticed some excellent watches in this movie. Like his fellow celebrities Tom Cruise, Kevin Hart, Mark Wahlberg, etc., Brad Pitt is known as an avid collector of watches as, over the years, he has been spotted flaunting various luxury watches such as Breitling avi ref, Cartier, Rolex, etc. You will watch Breitling on the wrist of Ladybug, the character played by Pitt as we all know that Brad Pitt was named the ambassador of Breitling. So, it is kind of tough to see him flexing anything other than one Breitling timepiece. Let’s have a look at watches worn in Bullet Train.

On the Train Tracks: Brad Pitt’s Watch Selection in Bullet Train

Breitling AVI Ref. 765 1953 Re-Edition

The modern version of the vintage Breitling watch from 1953, re-released in 2021, comes with a black dial and stainless-steel case. It’s a stunning model. The Breitling AVI ref 765 1953 re edition is all black and has been protected by one highly dome-shaped crystal featuring similar Arabic numbers as the original Co-Pilot from 1953 and 12-hour, 156-minute, and tone-on-tone tiny seconds chronograph counters. Its hand-applied Super-LumiNova hue was chosen carefully to recall the piece’s original luminous material, adding a touch of retro charm to it.

The bezel of the Breitling AVI ref 765 1953 re edition has been held in place by its three screws in the same places precisely, and the 41mm stainless-steel case is exactly identical to the 1953 watch. The only modern concessions that separate this new watch from its ancestor are that “GENEVA” does not appear on its dial, and the water resistance is increased to 30m (3 bar). It is kind of a solidly dependable watch that will make a happy place in any collection and will definitely look good on a broad range of outfits, excluding the most formal. This is a bankable and reliable watch as the man himself.

When we are watching

Close to the film’s midway point, Ladybug is seen coming face to face with an assassin named Tangerine (the character played by Taylor Johnson) on the train. The two characters in the film instantly become locked in their hand-to-hand battle as Tangerine is conscious that Ladybug is also the identical briefcase he is after. Until they both reach the dining car, they fight through several train cars. Amidst the throwing of objects, kicking, and hitting, the two are interrupted by a train staff member who requires them to re-stock some food. Unaware of the fight that preceded her entrance, he asks them whether they want anything to drink or eat. Hilariously, Ladybug asks for a water bottle. When he does so, we can watch the 1953 re-edition on his wrist. Until she leaves, he proceeds to drink water, and they fight again.

Later, Ladybug comes in contact with another assassin, and a key fight ensues. After the fight, Ladybug is seen to have a slight anxiety attack, and he takes refuge on the train’s floor, holding a paper bag in his hand. When he attempts to breathe in and out his stress, we notice the Breitling, along with its leather strap on breitling ambassador Pitt’s wrist, pretty clearly. In the film, Ladybug is seen taking part in some fantastically choreographed scenes that can balance humor and action perfectly.

Apart from Brad Pitt, Guy Fieri, Dave Chappelle, Gordan Ramsey, Tom Cruise, Bear Grylls, Charlize Theron, John Travolta, David Beckham, and many more, wear Breitling luxury watches.

Brad Pitt’s Bullet Train character Ladybug has been seen wearing the Breitling AVI ref. 765 1953 re-edition. Brad Pitt has been Breitling’s ambassador since 2000 and has been seen wearing one aviation watch on this movie’s poster. This one is a very beautiful pilot’s watch. It can be referred to as one full-stop vintage-meets-modern timepiece. Brad Pitt chose this piece to wear in his film.

If we look at the other characters in the movie, we can spot two other watches in the movie.

2. Rolex Oyster Perpetual ‘Bubbleback’

‘Tangerine’, the deadly assassin played by Aaron Taylor, wears one rare vintage Rolex piece from the 1940s, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual ‘Bubbleback’ featuring a ‘California’ dial. ‘Bubbleback’ has been named by the watch community after the extremely domed case back that contained the propeller of the revolutionary self-winding perpetual movement.

3. Cartier Tank Solo

Brad Pitt’s Breitling, as well as Aaron Taylor’s Rolex, are some of the standout pieces on display in this new high-octane thriller, Bullet Train. Brad Pitt is a brand ambassador of Breitling. More specifically, he is a member of Breitling Cinema Squad along with Charlize Theron and Adam Driver. In the film Bullet Train, Pitt picked the most esoteric version of the uber-specific vintage re-edition watch and made it a part of his character in this film. For the entire film, he wears this watch. It is constantly visible, though the amount of fighting scenes in the movie makes it tough to laser on the piece in some moments.

However, the best part is that the movie Bullet Train features a hero-shot close-up of this watch. Every watch enthusiast would definitely love the choice of timepiece for Ladybug. Brad Pitt plays an aloof character, a criminal who has lately been through some therapy and soul-searching and wants to improve his mental health while still continuing to function in the criminal underworld. Maybe some big score in his past gave Pitt a briefcase full of cash to purchase this platinum Breitling, or it is supposed to signify a vintage watch that might have been passed down to Pitt. It looks damn good in either case. What can’t Brad Pitt pull off?
