In movie news, TAG Heuer recently announced that the Grand Carrera Chronometer will be the watch of choice for Michael “Mick” Haller, Matthew McConaughey’s character in the upcoming thriller “The Lincoln Lawyer.” In this film, Michael Haller is an attorney who conducts his business out of the back of a Lincoln Continental. Michael Haller spends his career successfully defending petty criminals and lands a case defending a Beverly Hills Playboy accused of attempted murder.

Concerning their upcoming movie appearance, TAG Heuer’s says, “Between multiple clients, strict court appearances, looming deadlines and billable hours, time is an important theme to the film. Mick always knows the clock is ticking on his cases and has to stay one step ahead of what is coming next. For Mick, TAG Heuer is more than a watch, it is an essential tool for getting the job done.”
