If you’ve read any of our “Watches in the Movies” features, then you’ll know here at Horologii we have a fondness for spotting out favourite luxury brands on the big screen. TAG Heuer in particular is no stranger to the cinema with their best-selling models appearing on the wrists of actors like Tom Hardy, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon. Now joining this all-star list is Ryan Gosling, who starring in Netflix’s latest film The Gray Man wears one of the new TAG Heuer Carrera Three Hand watches.
The Gray Man
If you love a spy thriller, then get Netflix’s new The Gray Man on your watch list immediately. Directed by Joe & Anthony Russo, the filmmakers behind Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, the film sees Ryan Gosling portray assassin Sierra Six, the CIA’s most skilled operative. When Gosling accidently uncovers dark agency secrets, his psychopathic former colleague, played by Chris Evans, puts a bounty on his head, setting off a global manhunt by international assassins. It’s a chasing, crashing and explosion-packed work of art and a must-see for anyone with a penchant for action movies.
While the character Sierra Six and the storyline of The Gray Man is fictional, TAG Heuer’s “Don’t Crack Under Pressure” is a real-world manifestation of both, and as one of TAG Heuer’s best-known brand ambassadors, it seemed only right that Ryan Gosling wear one of the watches in the film. The watch chosen was a TAG Heuer Carrera, the brand’s high-precision sports watch, which although originally created for high-speed pursuits on the racetrack fits perfectly on the wrist of an elite super-assassin in need of reliable, precise timekeeping.
“We are thrilled to partner with Netflix for The Gray Man – not only does it star our very own brand ambassador in the form of Hollywood icon Ryan Gosling, but with a cast that also includes Chris Evans and Regé-Jean Page. With the Russo brothers directing, it already is the must-watch movie of 2022. And what else would Gosling’s unflappable Sierra Six wear than a TAG Heuer Carrera Three Hands – an iconic timepiece that is designed for those who don’t crack under pressure” says TAG Heuer CEO Frédéric Arnault.
Ryan Gosling adds: “I play Sierra Six in the action-packed film, The Gray Man. Six is an agent whose life is on the line, every second of the day and he needs a watch that’s got him covered. It takes precision and dedication for him to survive, and so it seemed like the perfect fit for him to wear the TAG Heuer Carrera.”
The TAG Heuer Carrera Three Hands
For many luxury watch collectors, the TAG Heuer Carrera is a must-have, communicating the Swiss watch manufacturer’s prowess and passion for motorsport. Originally launched in 1963 by Jack Heuer, the TAG Heuer Carrera watch was a remarkable modern race-ready chronograph inspired by the founder’s own love for the sport. The collection has evolved greatly over the years, especially recently with the launch of the TAG Heuer Carrera Three Hands watch collection. The line-up delivers an innate elegant through clear dials, faceted indexes, automatic movements and the famous H-shaped link stainless steel bracelet.
From Magno Herran, Netflix Head of Marketing Partnerships also says: “At Netflix, we are always exploring unique opportunities that allow us to connect fans with the titles and characters they love. And we’re thrilled to partner with TAG Heuer, an iconic brand that compliments the timeless story of The Gray Man, to enhance the creative storytelling and seamlessly brings fans on Sierra Six’s exciting journey – both on and off the screen”.

The first is reference WBN2111.BA0639 on a solid stainless steel bracelet and the second is WBN2111.FC6505 opting for all the same spec but secured by a black alligator leather strap. The watch features a durable 39mm stainless steel case with a 100 metre water resistant rating, screw in crown and sapphire crystal glass.
