Timex Ironman Dual Tech - Will Ferrell - Stranger Than Fiction
"This is a story about a man named Harold Crick... and his wristwatch. Harold Crick was a man of infinite numbers, endless calculations and remarkably few words. And his wristwatch said even less." says the narrator in the beginning of the movie. After ten years of painstaking work, novelist Karen Eiffel (played by Emma Thompson) is nearing completion on her latest, and potentially finest, book. Her only remaining challenge is to figure out how to kill off her main character, Harold Crick. Little does she know that Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) is inexplicably alive-and-well in the real world, and suddenly aware of her words. Fiction and reality collide when the bewildered and hilariously resistant Harold hears what she has in mind and realizes he must find a way to change her (and his) ending.
The novelist recounts Harold Crick's every move, from the moment the alarm sounds on his Timex watch, as he goes about his daily business, to the moment he switches off the light at the end of the day leaving the room illuminated by the Timex Indiglo nightlight. Harold's Timex is no ordinary watch; accompanying him through all the key moments of the film, it alerts him to everything from imminent danger, to the proximity of his love interest!
The LCD display of the watch in the film is CG enhanced to present clearer and other graphics. The actual watch has a simple LCD alphanumeric mode display with three lines and some special-indicators.
About the watch
This Timex watch, also known as the Timex Men's Ironman Triathlon 42 Lap Combo Analog Digital Dress Watch product number T56371, blends its signature Ironman Triathlon multi-function, performance sport digital watch with an analog read-out. The dual-tech feature enables you to turn the digital screen off for just an analog watch display, with its luminous hands and red seconds hand. The large, round stainless steel watch case has a metallic silver bezel with engraved 10-minute marks. It offers a 24-hour chronograph with lap or split option, 42-lap memory recall, 3 interval timers settable up to 100 minutes with countdown repeat function, 2 alarm settings, and 2 time zones. It's water resistant to 100 meters (330 feet).
The Indiglo night-light uniformly lights the surface of the watch dial using patented blue electroluminescent lighting technology, which can clearly be seen in the pictures on the left. It uses less battery power than most other watch illumination systems, enabling your watch battery to last longer.
