Jeremy Renner, who has played several major characters in many movies, is undoubtedly a luxury watch collector, and the collection of Jeremy really varies. In The Bourne movie, Jeremy Renner was seen wearing the 46mm IWC Pilot’s Watch Double Chronograph Top Gun IW379901 on his wrist. If we look at his best off and on-screen looks, the watches that topped his list include Rolex Submariner (in Mission: Impossible, we can see him playing the role of a special agent William Brandt), Rolex Day Date, Cartier Santos 100, Jaeger LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin Tourbillon, and Jaeger LeCoultre Reverso.

Jason Bourne wears a Tag Heuer Link Chronograph in The Bourne Identity. Apart from Bourne Identity, Jason Bourne was wearing the same Tag Heuer in The Bourne Ultimatum. Apparently, the wristwear of Mr. Jason Bourne does not change with The Bourne Supremacy, and he again wore the same Tag Heuer Link Chronograph. Fans have mixed feelings about the TOP GUN case back of IWC. What are your thoughts on it and also the watch as a whole?
