Gosling’s Action-Comedy Short Film Celebrates Tag Heuer Carrera’s 60th in London

Patrick Dempsey and Alexandra Daddario were also among the Swiss watch brand ambassadors in attendance at the starry event, where Gosling’s ‘The Chase for Carrera’ — produced by (and also starring) his ‘The Fall Guy’ director David Leitch — was shown for the first time.


Luxury Swiss brand Tag Heuer and its iconic motoring-inspired Carerra model celebrated 60th anniv with a glitzy cinema-focused event in central London on Thursday night.

Long time Tag Heuer ambassadors Patrick Dempsey and Ryan Gosling were the highest-profile attendees, both brought on stage by company boss Frédéric Arnault to discuss their relationship with the company. Dempsey said he first got involved with it 9 years ago while racing at Le Mans.

Arnault also welcomed Euphoria‘s Jacob Elordi and introduced Alexandra Daddario as its latest celebrity timepiece-wearer (alongside some new photos of her brandishing one of the latest Tag Heuer models).

Heartstopper star Kit Connor and House of the Dragon‘s Milly Alcock were among the guests in the crowd, as was a heavily photographed Porsche 911 Carrera.

Produced by Deadpool 2 and Bullet Train director David Leitch’s 87 North banner and directed by Nash Edgerton (Mr Inbetween), The Chase for Carrera it was shot in Australia while Gosling was filming Universal’s actioner The Fall Guy with Leitch.
It is a meta action-comedy in which Gosling, playing himself, attempts to steal the new Tag Heuer Carrera Glassbox (designed to commemorate the 60th anniversary) from a film set, going on the run in his Porsche while Bayer’s unrelenting prop master gives chase. As one attendee noted, “This may be the first time a Switch watch brand has actually been funny.”

The Chase for Carrera isn’t the first film featuring Gosling and a Tag Heuer Carrera. His tie-up with the brand saw him sport a Tag Heuer Carrera Three Hands in last year’s Netflix spy thriller The Grey Man.

He’ll be seen wearing the new Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph (one with a sportier black and silver dial) in The Fall Guy.
