Watches in Movies in The Independent
I was recently approached for a short interview regarding the collection of things in the online world. Below is an excerpt of the Watches in Movies piece:
James Enloe has a blog where he collects pictures of characters in movies wearing wristwatches, a screengrab of Clint Eastwood’s Rolex being a typical entry. Enloe notes that Eastwood’s GMT Master “Root Beer” Rolex has made a cameo in (at least) Firefox, Tightrope and In The Line of Fire. It’s a collection that couldn’t exist without the internet. Or at least without the watch community as empowered by the internet.
“The watch community, that’s the juice behind the blog,” James says of WatchesinMovies.info “I receive about a half a dozen submissions a week from viewers who see a watch in a movie and take the time to grab a screenshot and send it my way.”
My thanks to Anna Leach for the interview and inclusion in her article. You can read the full piece here: Curating online: Hobbies for the hipsters
