Dwayne the Rock Johnson wears Montblanc 1858 Automatic watch
If the Montblanc 1858 is good enough for Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Hollywood’s most physical man, it’s good enough to accompany me up the face of Mont Blanc.
Mountain of muscle, actor, producer, and semi-retired professional wrestler, Dwayne the Rock Johnson was recently spotted with a Montblanc 1858 Automatic with small seconds on a black dial. Clad in a trendy, patterned, black and white Hawaii shirt, The Rock was captured flashing the nigh recognisable timepiece thanks to its milanese bracelet and the signature cathedral hands.
Dwayne the Rock Johnson wears Montblanc 1858 Automatic to US Talk show Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen
Visiting the US Talk show Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Johnson, popularly known as The Rock, was on the show to talk about his new movie – Skyscraper. Among other things, The Rock also discussed his social media spat (or lack thereof) with Fast and the Furious co-star, Tyrese Gibson, who plays Roman Pearce in the movie franchise. Gibson attacked The Rock after he revealed a Fast and Furious spin-off based on his character, Luke Hobbs. But I digress.
The 47mm Montblanc 1858 Automatic is not a small watch but on Johnson’s wrist, the classic timepiece looks regular, almost gentlemanly proportioned rather than “inspired by pocket watches”. Widely recognised as the #HardestWorkingDudeInShowbiz, The Rock’s Instagram account boasts a healthy inspiration of Saturday morning workouts to maintain his epic physique and his relatable family guy brand as he plays with his kids and romances his wife, Lauren Hashian.
Thought of as the new Schwarzenegger, Johnson the sculpted colossus topped Forbes’s list of highest-paid actors in 2016 and considering he’s on his third blockbuster this year, The Rock is likely to top the 2018 list.
The Montblanc 1858 collection is home to a selection of automatic small seconds watches, Automatic Dual Time, chronograph and the pinnacle (no pun intended) of the series – the 1858 Geospheres – a timepiece which will accompany a select Montblanc team of climbers (including yours truly) to climb the peak of Mont Blanc.
If the Montblanc 1858 is good enough for certainly the most physical man in Hollywood, it’s good enough to accompany me up the face of Mont Blanc.
