Chris Hemsworth’s Watches

Australian actor Chris Hemsworth has played a lot of roles on screen, but it’s his recurring role as Thor that’s considered the breakthrough of his career. Playing a superhero from the Marvel Cinematic Universe has established him as one of the leading and highest-paid actors in the world.

Beyond the big screen, Chris is a husband, father, and motor racing enthusiast. His passion for racing led him to join the TAG Heuer family of ambassadors in 2015; and he remains a friend of the brand. Check out the watches of Chris Hemsworth:

 

Speedmaster Chronograph

 

Omega Speedmaster

Prior to being signed by TAG Heuer, Chris used to wear an Omega Speedmaster MoonWatch — one of the most iconic chronographs ever. The first watch to land on the moon, the Speedy became the preferred watch of NASA for space missions, based on its robust build and reliable functioning even in the harshest conditions.

Today, the Omega Speedmaster is the most extensively tested timepiece and a favorite starter watch among collectors.

 

Pilot Black Dial Chronograph

 

IWC Pilot

IWC Schaffhausen has been creating pilot’s watches since the 1930’s; and aside from being aesthetically pleasing, they also take into account every pilot’s most pressing need.

IWC Pilot watches have enhanced readability with black dials, large and contrasting Arabic numerals and hands that stand out starkly from the dial. The iconic triangular index at 12 o’clock also has a purpose – it allows pilots to recognize the position of the hands at a glance.

 

Monaco Calibre 12 Blue Dial

 

TAG Heuer Monaco

Chris has also been spotted with the classic blue dial Tag Heuer Monaco, as well as the black dial design. Created in 1969, the Monaco is the world’s first waterproof automatic chronograph, with a square case. It’s well-known for its ties with the racing world, and with the square case, it’s still one of the few watches one can recognize even from across the room.

 


 

Montblanc
Chris has also been spotted with Montblanc timepieces. Here, he is wearing the Montblanc Meisterstück Heritage Automatic Date, while presenting at the Oscars with actress Charlize Theron.

 

Carrera Chronograph

 

TAG Heuer Carrera

The Carrera was borne out of former CEO Jack Heuer’s desire for a clean chronograph. In the 1960s, chronographs had many tracks on the dial, so Heuer designed the Carrera to be without extraneous details. There have been at least 10 generations of the Carrera since its introduction, with new models introducing futuristic and avant garde designs as part of the company’s direction.

 

Calibre Heuer 01 Skeleton Watch

 

TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber Heuer 01

There are a bevy of variations of the Carrera watch, but the most avant-garde yet was the Carrera Caliber Heuer 01, launched in 2015. The Heuer 01 collection of watches have an open working dial that shows the partially skeletonized, in-house chronograph movement. With this watch, TAG Heuer shows that it’s creating watches for the future.

 


 

Heuer Autavia Isograph
Chris is also the face of one of TAG Heuer’s latest collections, the Autavia Isograph – a line of pilot’s watches that also function as motorsports chronographs.
