The team behind the big-screen production of fan favorite Veronica Mars cast a Baume & Mercier Linea timepiece on the wrist of the lead character.
Played by Kristen Bell, former teen detective Veronica Mars enters life in the big city with a new sense of style and poise.
The 2004-2007 television series featured Mars as a high schooler, while the 2014 film production takes place with the now grown-up protagonist in career mode after having moved to New York City, and she wears a watch that reflects her professional status.

Veronica Mars is among a new crop of mainly fan-funded productions; this one came about after creator Rob Thomas went to Kickstarter as a means of getting the movie made.
In the end, $5.7 million of fan donations went into producing the film, which was released on March 14, and viewers will no doubt eye it with an extreme attention for detail.

While still a luxury timepiece, the Linea worn by Bell is relatively accessibly priced as a contemporary and versatile timepiece for women. The 10070 model featured in the film comes in a 32mm wide steel case with a Swiss quartz movement and has a unique feature that allows for a quick strap change.
The timepiece comes with both a steel bracelet and a black leather strap (which Mars wears during the film). A tasteful watch, it matches the sophisticated nature of the character well, while also being an item Veronica Mars fans can relate to and feasibly acquire with a retail price of $2,400.
