Plaza Watch International - - Time At The Movies -

Walken An un­for­get­table scene in cinematic his­tory with a watch as the fo­cal point – in his se­cond film, Quentin Tarantino shows Butch (Bruce Willis) re­mem­ber­ing in a flash­back how he re­ceived his Lancet watch that be­longed his fa­ther, from his fa­ther's com­rade, Cap­tain Koons (Christo­pher Walken). “I hid this un­com­fort­able hunk of metal up my ass two years. Then, af­ter seven years, I was sent home to my fam­ily. Now, lit­tle man, I give the watch to you”. The Lancet watch, made by now-de­funct Swiss watch­maker Lan­gen­dorf Watch Com­pany, today can only be found in an­tique shops, vin­tage mar­kets and on spe­cialised web­sites.
