In the latest April 2013 issue of GQ with Jason Bateman on the Cover, he is wearing IWC on one of the pages of the style shoot. The watch he is wearing is non other than the IWC Portuguese Chronograph in Red Gold with an Ardoise dial, ref #IW371482.
This is the perfect match for IWC, because Jason Bateman epitomizes IWC sophistication. He is an understated guy with refined taste, and doesn’t seem flashy at all and that’s what IWC is in my opinion, understated elegance with history. In the photo shoot he is wearing designer casual wear jumping in the air, and unless you are a watch head like me, you would never know that Jason Bateman is wearing a watch valued at $16,400 in Red Gold. Instead you see a subtle and casual glimpse of it.
A lot of times when you see a magazine shoot like this, the watch doesn’t match the personality at all. In this case, it couldn’t be a more appropriate fit. I would like to congratulate IWC and GQ for making the perfect choice in choosing Jason Bateman to wear the IWC Portuguese Chronograph in Red Gold with Ardoise dial in The April 2013 issue of GQ Magazine. This was done in a very classy way that will translate well to the public.
