mission impossible fallout

The latest Mission Impossible movie Fallout (released Summer 2018), features a CWC mechanical stopwatch, which was selected by the film makers as it was the ideal stopwatch for Tom Cruise to hold whilst timing a critical sequence in the movie.

The movie is action-packed from end to end with great stunts, and features a full-screen shot of the CWC mechanical 60 minute timer - Swiss-made, high quality stopwatch.

CWC has been making stopwatches for military and commercial use since the 1970s. Every newsroom in the country used CWC or similar mechanical stopwatches and many are probably still in use.

Hundreds were supplied to the BBC and ITV, together with CWC mechanical chronographs for reporters - made to order according to customers' requirements.

The image shown here is our photo; you will have to watch the movie to see Tom Cruise in action holding the CWC stopwatch. See A History of CWC.
