Watch auctions are basically a way of connecting top of the line watches with collectors and connoisseurs who appreciate them. A watch needs to suit you, especially when you are an actor playing a particular role. That’s why in the past we have matched “Suit’s” Mike Ross and gentleman K. Cooper Ray with a watch suited for them.
Now it is time to do this once again; this time for Steve Buscemi and his alter-ego Nucky Thompson. Steve Buscemi is not your typical actor. No broad shoulders, large muscles or a smile that seems to come straight out of a toothpaste commercial. No, Buscemi is more your everyday guy, with an extraordinary talent for character acting.
To see what Martin suggests Nucky wears on his wrist… Trust me it’s definately worth a read the full article can be found at Longitude – Christies Watch Blog http://blogs.christies.com/longitude/brands/watch-matchmaker-boardwalk-empires-nucky-thompson-gets-a-new-watch/
In Martin’s own words “I’m convinced that his taste for the finer things in life would definitely make him recognize and appreciate the extraordinary craftsmanship of the Vacheron. A character actor needs a character watch! I call that a double match!”
