Of course Norton has been in plenty of other movies but these are the ones that initially come to mind. So putting aside what the consumer association may be with Norton, lets focus on what all this means for him. Being a watch brand ambassador is not all fun and games. Sure you need to spend hours dolled up in front of a camera swapping watches and wardrobe, but there is so much more. Basically, Norton cannot be see wearing anything other than a Breil watch until his contract is up. That is a pretty steep price if you ask me, especially since Breil watches are nice, but not movie start nice. We are talking about watches that are a few hundred bucks, as opposed to ones which run with a higher league of watch. Imagine him getting together with pals, each has a ,000 - ,000 watch on, and Norton has a 0 Breil. He is basically gonna have to say, "I'm getting mil a year to wear this, screw all of you." Actually I am not sure how much he is making a year on this, but I hope it is at least that.
Ah, but there is one scenario where fake watches are a problem, and I honestly don't know how much of a problem it really is. This is when a person buys a fake watch thinking it is a real watch. The quality is sub par, and thus the good-will of the brand is eroded. This is a problem, and I can see how this might be an issue. Though, I don't see how this could be a long standing issue. For someone to be tricked like this, they would need to buy the watch at a retail location. No one worth caring about believes you can buy a real luxury European watch off a street vendor. This retail location would be quickly found and shut down, at least I could not imagine any major city where it would not be. So in my opinion, while this is a potentially serious issue, it is probably not a common issue.
The Casio men's Ana-Digi Electro-Luminescent Sport Watch #AQ160W-1BV is an excellent example of all the features that Casio can pack into an inexpensive watch and still make it look somewhat attractive. The watch is a double display. Meaning it has a digital reverse monochrome LCD display dial, with analog hands on top if it. This way you get to read the time in two ways. In addition to the time, the watch has a world time function, several alarms, perpetual calendar, electroluminescent display (may or may not be "always on," quick daylight savings switch, and a countdown timer. The watch is known as "classic" in Casio terms. This means that the model represents a tried and true design or model that has been around for a while.

The movement powering this unique display is an automatic ETA 2892-2 with a special jumping hour module from Dubois Depraz. For the price of this watch, given the design, movement, and appeal; I would argue that it is probably a pretty good value. The pictured watch has a label indicating Sea Dubai, and you might be wondering why that is. Well I can speculate by suggesting that there might be regional editions. Dubai is one of the fastest growing luxury markets, and it is no surprise to see luxury makers give personal attention to the watch hungry region. With the unique yet functional design complimented by the blue tones on the case and alligator strap, you get a refreshing new watch from Edox that is the star of their 2009 line up.
