Denzel Washington’s Watch In The Equalizer Movie

Denzel Washington is back in another action packed movie called The Equalizer (2014) where he plays as Robert McCall, a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life in Boston and then he meets Teri, a young girl under the control of the violent Russian gangsters. Armed with dangerous skills, McCall comes out of retirement to help the girl and serve justice.




In the trailer below, you get to see him wearing a cool black watch where he times himself before unleashing horror to the Russian mob. The watch seems to look like the Suunto Core All Black. For the outdoor enthusiasts, it comes with a host of features. It has an intelligent Storm Alarm that checks for rapid drop in air pressure and lets you know that something unpleasant is fast approaching.


The built-in altimeter shows you your current elevation like how much you’ve climbed or descended and is accurate to 30,000 feet. The barometer function lets you measure and record air pressure to predict the weather conditions. Low pressure indicates inclement weather while high pressure brings clear skies.

The Suunto Core All Black also has a built-in weather trend indicator that lets you predict the weather in advance with amazing accuracy. It also has a digital compass where you can also set your bearing with a rotating bezel. It includes other functionalities like dual times, date display, alarm, depth meter reading to 30 feet, water resistance to 100 feet and other functions.

If you’re someone who likes the outdoor like biking, hiking and camping then this is the watch for you. It’s current retailing for $329 but you can get it for around $174 at Amazon. Check out the movie trailer and watch review below:-

    But that watch don’t have timer function on first screen, like in the movie. I think it made especially for that scene or it’s just computer graphic.

    Is this an updated version. Apart from the strap it looks the same as mine, but I don’t have a large stopwatch function like that shown. On mine the stopwatch displays below the time and is in a smaller font than the time. Sometimes when I’m running and I have sweat in my eyes it’s hard to read the smaller stopwatch, so I’m interested if there’s some kind of upgrade here…

    Are you sure about the watch being a Suunto Core? It does look like a Core. I have the all Black version and unaware that there is a Blue digital display? Perhaps Suunto made a special version just for the movie with a blue display.

    on the amazon link, in the color selection, click on the 9th selection, it will select the all black military watch. this one looks like the equalizer watch with the blue backlight

    @Rudra – Yeah, how did the watch turn out? Just like the movie; just as expected?

    On the Suunto website go to the Product Q&A for the Suunto Core and search for “Equaliser” (or stopwatch). You will find an answer from Suunto stating that the watch in the film *is* the Suunto core All Black, but the stopwatch shown in the large display in the film was a CGI special effect added by the movie company and is not possible on the real watch. boo!

    Here’s a short video showing the scenes from The Equalizer that contain the watch…and yes…it’s not exactly true to real life (as explained).


    Here is also another couple of videos I have made on the Suunto Core All Black

    Thanks for all your posts. I recently bought also the Suunto all core black model, and was trying real hard to get the stopwatch function bigger on the main screen vs the smaller one. Yeah, real unfortunate it is a special effect only as when I run too, I cannot see the small stopwatch. They should add this feature later to a new version. Does anyone know how to brighten the backlight, it is so dim. Thanks

    My Suunto all core black has white markers around the clock face and two white solid markers at the north point. It looks like there is a model in this article that shows fluorescent yellow markers? The one Denzel is wearing looks like it has white markers.

    I have this watch and love it completely The stop watch part is cgi for the movie.
    The storm alarm is amazing, calibrate it right. You can program the compass, the depth meter is great, alto is cool, no complaints at all!!!

    Yo compré este reloj al ver la pelicula, me impresiono el cronómetro.
    Ahora estoy decepcionado y frustado, el cronómetro no se ve apenas.
    La verdad, me siento un poco engañado.
    Un saludo
