Atomic Blonde Premiere With Carl F. Bucherer

Atomic Blonde – Introduction

Happy me, I was invited to my first movie premiere – joining the Carl F. Bucherer team to watch ‘Atomic Blonde’ in Berlin. Following all the cool John Wick, Liam Neeson, Jason Statham action movies, David Leitch had the brilliant idea to produce an action movie with a leading actress.

Charlize Theron takes the starring role in Atomic Blonde, which also features such leading names as James McAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella, and Til Schweiger.

Sounds amazing? An IMBD rating of 7.3 is an impressive number and trust me, the movie is absolutely worth watching but more about the story later.

Atomic Blonde Warm Up

I spent my afternoon relaxing at the Hotel lobby of ‘Das Stue’. The former embassy is an absolute stunner of a Hotel. I asked myself: what would an agent do? Smoking a cigar, reading the news seemed to be the ideal preparation for the action part afterwards.

Manero Flyback – By Carl F. Bucherer

Of course such an event requires a matching watch. The Manero Flyback absolutely belongs to my favourite watches when it comes to combine it with a classy suit.

The Manero Flyback has something distinctly unique to offer for watch lovers: the sophisticated manufactured movement with flyback function. It enables the user to record consecutive times with the shortest possible interval between them.

This timepiece combines beauty, class and precision mechanics.

Atomic Blonde – What Is It About?

Don’t worry, this is not the type of spoiler article – but still we can do a small recap:

Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron), a top-level spy for MI6, is dispatched to Berlin to take down a ruthless espionage ring that has just killed an undercover agent for reasons unknown. She is ordered to cooperate with Berlin station chief David Percival, and the two form an uneasy alliance, unleashing their full arsenal of skills in pursuing a threat that jeopardizes the West’s entire intelligence operation.

The Role Of Carl F. Bucherer

With David Leitch as director and Swiss actor Daniel Bernhardt as the villain, the latest Hollywood action thriller Atomic Blonde boasts two Carl F. Bucherer brand ambassadors in key roles. Watches from the Lucerne-based brand also play an important role – but you’ll have to watch the movie to nd out more details. Carl F. Bucherer also supported its brand ambassadors as the exclusive partner for the movie’s world premiere in Berlin. Among the highlights, a watchmaker’s bench appeared on the red carpet, where a Carl F. Bucherer watchmaker offered insights into this traditional craft.

Atomic Blonde – Closing Word

I really enjoyed watching the movie. There a few aspects I really enjoyed about it:

  • It’s a super powerful movie and it stands for a strong, talented and fascinating woman – encouraging!
  • The soundtrack flows into the whole story and kicks you into the Atomic Blonde world – staggering!
  • You will be able to feel how much struggle Charlize went through, big respect for that

After the movie we enjoyed a nice closing drink – and at the next day an exciting hotrod tour. I had a great time in Berlin which I will never forget!

Dress Code Casual – Easy One!

Dress Code Casual – Introduction

You just got another invitation and you’re not sure how to dress up? Don’t worry, today we have an easy one. This particular dress code usually pops up when you’re supposed to show up casual, but still tidy.

There is always a reason if you find the word ‘dress code’ on your invite. It means that the promoter, your friend or whoever invites you, asks for a common theme.

After talking about the dress codes ‘smart casual’ and ‘business casual’, we will now cover the easiest one: the dress code casual.

Dress Code Casual – Explained

Well… the word ‘casual’ describes it perfectly: you’re allowed to enjoy a lot of freedom and flexibility. The other two dress codes contain more rules and restrictions.

Alright, as we said: take it easy and relax. Still, it might be a bit weird to wear flip flops or swim trunks, a snapback or similar. So, we do have a recommendation for you to follow the dress code casual:

  • Polo Shirt or normal shirt
  • Jeans or chinos
  • Sneakers
  • Jacket or blazer if it gets colder

Yes, there are plenty of other options too, there are so many ways to dress up casually. You can always contact us with pictures, we’re happy to advise. Afraid you’re overdressed? Stick to Oscar Wilde:

“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”
