This fall, the Snyper One Red Limited watch will be in the heat of action on the wrist of Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg, in the film Deepwater Horizon. The movie is based on real events that occurred on an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico on 20 April 2010. The story honors the courage of those who worked on the Deepwater Horizon and their intense bravery and dramatic fight for survival in the face of what would become the largest ecological disaster caused by man in the history of the world. The international release of the film is scheduled for September 30, 2016.
Scripted by Matthew Michael Carnahan and Matthew Sand, and directed by Peter Berg, the film will recount the story of the brave men and women whose heroism saved many lives in the midst of the world’s largest man-made disaster. The film has a terrific cast, which in addition to Mark Wahlberg includes Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, John Malkovich, Kate Hudson, and Dylan O’Brien.
The Snyper One Red Limited watch featured in the movie has a 53 mm diameter and the case is made from 316L stainless steel, with black PVD coating. The timepiece features a self-winding chronograph, Snyper Caliber F101 Chrono Day/Date movement and has a power reserve of 48 hours. The watch dial is unique and is made from black carbon fiber with red 3, 6, 9 and 12 numbers and flange. The chronograph hand is also in red with a target shape in center. The watch comes with a black leather strap with red stitching and is water-resistant to 100 meters.
The Snyper brand was born in 2008, when watchmaking enthusiasts, who later became the company’s founders, encountered a Special Forces sniper. Their discussions led them to realize that their respective worlds had a lot in common, notably the same demanding need for high quality: robustness, precision, technology and functional design.
A few months later, in January 2009, Snyper launched with a mission to manufacture a unique new style of top quality watches, based on innovative design and the values of excellence that have contributed to the worldwide reputation of military Special Forces. The Snyper brand has since created four distinct collections: Snyper One, Snyper Two, Snyper F117 Tourbillon, and Snyper Ironclad among others. All of these products were researched and manufactured according to the same rigorous requirements, design and production quality. The same applies to Snyper Modules, which are lifestyle accessories par excellence. These original and novel objects are crafted with innovative design that lends even more uniqueness to the Snyper watch. Designed and assembled in Geneva, Snyper watches are recognized by people who share the highest standards of discipline and self-control.
