The new movie THE COURIER, based on a true story staring Benedict Cumberbatch shows the main character deep in a cold war drama. As wiki describes the film; "true story of the British businessman who helped the MI6 penetrate the Soviet nuclear programme during the Cold War. Wynne and his Russian source, Oleg Penkovsky (codenamed Ironbark), provided crucial intelligence that ended the Cuban Missile Crisis."
The fun part is our hero wears a Breitling Unitime Ref’ 1260. Wonder if that was really true. At lease it's not another Rolex…

can confirm that the watch was chosen (from several options) by Benedict Cumberbatch himself; it is back on my wrist now ;)
