WHAT DO DWAYNE JOHNSON AND JASON STATHAM WEAR IN “FAST AND FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS AND SHAW”?
In the movie “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jason Statham each wear a timepiece as part of their characters’ attire. The film, which is the first spin-off of the popular Fast & Furious series, was released worldwide on August 2 and features an ensemble cast including Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, and Helen Mirren. The movie quickly gained attention and broke the record for early screening in Vietnam, earning VND 14 billion on its first day.
In real life, both Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are known to be watch enthusiasts and often wear their own watches in their movies. Let’s take a closer look at the timepieces chosen by these actors for their characters in “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.”
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson can be seen wearing a Panerai Luminor Submersible in the film. The Panerai Luminor Submersible is a robust 44mm stainless steel watch with a protective lug and comes with a brown leather strap. However, due to Johnson’s tall and muscular physique, the watch may appear relatively small on his wrist. This is not the first time Johnson has worn a Panerai watch in a movie; he has previously worn Panerai models in films like “San Andreas” and “Fast & Furious 6.”
On the other hand, Jason Statham opted for a vintage Rolex Submariner for his character in the movie. The specific reference of the Rolex Submariner worn by Statham is unclear, as it could be either the COSC chronometer-certified ref. 5512 or the ref. 5513. However, based on an interview with ET Canada, it has been confirmed that Statham wears a Submariner ref. 5513. The Rolex Submariner ref. 5513, produced from 1962 to 1989, features a 40mm stainless steel case and is powered by the 1520 automatic movement. Unlike the 5512 model at the time, the 5513 does not have the words “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” on the dial.
Panerai, a brand that was originally known for producing diving watches for the Italian Navy, has now gained popularity among actors and is frequently featured in action-packed movies. Rolex, on the other hand, is a well-established brand recognized by many for its timeless design and reliability.
In “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” the focus is on the dynamic duo of Luke Hobbs (played by Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (played by Jason Statham). The inclusion of these notable timepieces adds a touch of style and sophistication to their characters’ appearances, showcasing their love for watches both on and off the screen.
