After I have recently watched the movie The Meg, I couldn’t not to pay attention to beautiful watches that the actors are wearing in it.
So I did a bit of research and found the watches the the actors in “The Meg” are wearing.
The Meg movie
The Meg is a 2018 science fiction action thriller film directed by Jon Turteltaub and written by Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber, and Erich Hoeber, based on the 1997 book Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror by Steve Alten.
The film is about a 75-foot-long (23 m) Megalodon named the Megalodon who wreaks havoc on a deep-sea submersible. The Meg was released in the United States on August 10, 2018. The movie stars Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Rainn Wilson, Cliff Curtis, Shuya Sophia Cai, and Page Kennedy.
The Great White shark is known to be one of the most feared predators on the planet. It can weigh up to 20 tons and grow more than 20 feet long. (the largest on record measured 24 feet) Hollywood built on the fear when they made a movie in 1997 called “Jaws” that created a whole new generation of fear of sharks.
But what does the Meg have to do with all this? Well, the movie is a science fiction shark attack movie where a giant prehistoric shark terrorizes our oceans. The shark in the movie is referred to as the Megalodon, which is a real creature that lived 2.5 million years ago. The creature lived in the present-day Atlantic Ocean and they were known to grow to around 40 feet.
But we are not here to talk about the movie, we are here to talk about the watches that the actors are wearing in it.
The Watches in The Meg movie
1. Jason Statham – IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition La Cumbre Volcano IW3795-05
The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition La Cumbre Volcano IW3795-05 is the first luxury watch to be featured in the film The Meg, and it’s a limited edition of just 500 pieces. The watch is a reflection of IWC’s deep ties to the ocean, the company’s home base of Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and the Swiss International Air Lines flight that travels to the region’s La Cumbre Volcano, where the watch takes its name.
The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition La Cumbre volcano is a perfect representation of the indomitable spirit of exploration. Its rippled bezel evokes the waves of the seas; its dial, the deep blue of the sky; and its ceramic case, the serenity of the clouds. The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition La Cumbre Volcano watch is part of the IWC collection and is great for everyday wear. The IWC Aquatimer Chronograph Edition La Cumbre Volcano watch is a men’s watch. The watch is made of a combination of black rubber and stainless steel. The watch is also water-resistant up to 120 meters (400 feet).
2. Ruby Rose – Seiko Prospex Solar SSC295
The Seiko Prospex Solar is a smartwatch that is part of the big family of Seiko’s Prospex dive watches. Prospex is an abbreviation for the Professional Specification, and it means that the watch has been created with professional use in mind.
The standard version of it comes with a green Nylon strap but in the movie you will see it with a black rubber strap which is in my opinion is more beautiful and looks less like a military watch which is great for a daily use.
It is a time-tested Seiko product and comes with a solar-powered quartz movement, a tough solar case, and a stainless steel case. The watch’s features include a digital compass, a thermometer, an altimeter, a barometer, and a sunset and sunrise time function.
Seiko Prospex Solar SSC295 A solar powered, high-performance sports watch that delivers outstanding precision for diving, surfing, snorkeling, and other water activities.

The black ion-plated stainless steel bracelet is comfortable and durable, and a date window is displayed at 12 o’clock. A scratch-resistant Hardlex crystal is used along with an easy-to-read offset display. The watch is solar powered with a 6-month power reserve once fully charged.
3. Li Bingbing – Carl F. Bucherer Patravi ScubaTec
This gorgeous new Carl F. Bucherer Patravi Scubatec watch is a real head-turner. The watch can be seen in the movie The Meg, starring Jason Statham and Li Bingbing.
