Hollywood heartthrob and TAG Heuer’s esteemed brand ambassador, Ryan Gosling, makes a style statement in the much-talked-about high-grossing movie “Barbie” with three exceptional TAG Heuer timepieces. Since his collaboration with TAG Heuer began in 2021, Gosling’s partnership with the Swiss watchmaker has blossomed, leading to multiple cinematic ventures and a unique connection that continues to strengthen. In this instance, though, Gosling’s character Ken wears all three watches at once. The three yellow gold watches were handpicked by Gosling and are right out of the 1960’s and 1970’s and are icons just like Barbie and Ken.
The standout piece among the three is the original reference 1158 CHN from 1971, a remarkable watch with a solid 18-karat gold bracelet in the iconic Milanese-style design, enhancing its visual appeal. Another noteworthy selection is the reference 110.515 from 1974, featuring a distinctive barrel-shaped case with a sunray-brushed finish and an intricate gold dial, adding to the film’s captivating atmosphere. Completing the trio is the timeless Carrera reference 2448 NT, drawing inspiration from the original 1963 Carrera model, evoking classic elegance with its faceted lugs and iconic design elements.
In the movie’s narrative, the inclusion of these watches adds a delightful dose of humor as the characters transition from the enchanting Barbie world, where time is of no essence, to reality. Ryan Gosling’s character proudly presents the watches to Barbie, symbolizing the shift from a fantastical universe to a world where time holds significant importance. In a playful twist, Gosling decides to wear all three watches simultaneously, adding an unexpected element to the storyline and creating moments of laughter and amusement.
Adding to the glamour of the movie’s launch, TAG Heuer introduced the vibrant pink-hued TAG Heuer Carrera Date, worn by Ryan Gosling during previous premiere events. This exceptional timepiece, launched during the brand’s celebration of the 60th birthday of the TAG Heuer Carrera, features a streamlined silhouette, a vibrant pink dial color, and an upgraded mechanical movement.
As Gosling’s on-screen presence captivates audiences, the trio of gold watches harmonizes seamlessly with his character’s charm and adds to the overall allure of the idea behind the movie.
