Marvel’s latest recruit is a fan of a Breitling Transocean Chronograph...

Former British GQ cover star Richard Madden just graced Comic-Con in San Diego to reveal that he will be playing a lead role in Marvel's upcoming film Eternals. Set for a release in 2020, it will see the Marvel world get another expansion, which, for fans, is seriously big news.

And while there was plenty of buzz surrounding Madden's part in the film, it was what he was wearing on his wrist that really got us going. Here at GQ, as you know, we know a good watch when we see one. The wrist gear we're talking about is in fact a Breitling Transocean Chronograph, which is Madden's go-to.

Reviving the design of the classic Fifties and Sixties chronographs (of which the Breitling Navitimer, Tag Heuer Autavia and the Omega Speedmaster are most well known), the Breitling Transocean Chronograph is a sleek timepiece that features a high-performance Caliber 01 engine. The steel and 18-carat-gold watch has been entirely developed and produced at Breitling Chronométrie, a Mecca for watch lovers in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. If it's suitable for the possible future Bond, then it's good enough for us.

And Madden isn't the only fan. Gordon Ramsay, David Beckham, John Travolta and our very own Style And Grooming Director, Teo van den Broeke, all have one, so what are you waiting for? Below are the best Breitling Transocean Chronograph watches out there right now...
