Director and brand ambassador Chad Stahelski continues his successful directing debut with the action packed sequel ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ starring Keanu Reeves and featuring Carl F. Bucherer’s luxury timepieces.
Los Angeles, January 30, 2017. Hollywood came out to celebrate the film’s much-anticipated premiere at the ArcLight Theater. The star-studded event was hosted by Swiss watch manufacturer Carl F. Bucherer. The stars took to the red carpet in style including Keanu Reeves, who sported a Carl F. Bucherer Patravi TravelTec II in steel with black dial for the occasion. Director and Carl F. Bucherer brand ambassador Chad Stahelski wore a Patravi TravelTec in rose gold. They were joined by co-stars Ruby Rose, Ian McShane, Bridget Moynahan, John Leguizamo, Laurence Fishburne and Common wearing a Manero PowerReserve.
Carl F. Bucherer CEO Sascha Moeri walked the red carpet with Swiss actor, stuntman, and ambassador Daniel Bernhardt, Sofia Milos and special guest Joe Mantegna wearing a Patravi TravelTec Black.
The brand’s distinctive Swiss-made luxury timepieces make their second appearance in the action film franchise, worn by Keanu Reeves and members of the A-list cast. Gripping action sequences awe-struck the audience as former hit-man John Wick, played by Keanu Reeves, comes out of retirement once again to face off with the world’s deadliest assassins. John Wick is wearing his trademark Carl F. Bucherer Manero AutoDate in steel with white dial and black alligator leather strap throughout the film. His antagonist Cassian, played by rap-star and musician Common, wears the Patravi ScubaTec in steel with black dial. Ian McShane as Winston also stays true to his Manero AutoDate in steel with black dial and black strap.
The film premiere was followed by an intimate after party at Boulevard3 for the cast and special guests. Chad Stahelski: “In my line of work, wardrobe and accessories have to stand up to the physical challenges that actors and stunt people face on set filming intense action sequences. High performance, yet stylish, luxurious, and modern, Carl F. Bucherer watches are ready for anything – a natural fit for a film like John Wick: Chapter 2. As a brand ambassador I was proud to wear my own Carl F. Bucherer timepiece on set while directing and to the premiere today. “
The film debuts in theaters in the United States on February 10, 2017
