Cecilia Bartoli is one of the top Opera singers in the world today. She is considered to be a coloratura mezzo-soprano, coupled with an unusual timbre, and is one of the top-selling opera singers today.
Cecilia Bartoli was discovered at a young age by several leading conductors, which included Daniel Barenboim, Nickolaus Harnoncourt, and Herbert von Karajan, who is pictured below.
Herbert von Karajan is seen in the photos above and below wearing his Rolex Professional Watch, and in the future I plan to do a detailed story on his amazing career as the conductor for the Berlin Harmonic Orchestra from 1955 until his death in 1989.
Herbert von Karajan and the other conductors discovered Cecelia just after she completed her vocal training with her parents—both of which are also singers—in her home-town of Rome in Italy. Her career took off at an unusually young time in her life, and she has gone on to attain amazing career achievements.
Rolex sponsored a BBC documentary more than a decade ago, which gives a superb overview of Cecelia Bartoli's amazing career achievements, which I highly recommend watching below!!!
Bob Iger is a man who is hard to describe. He is kind of like a Hollywood Superman. Not only is he CEO of Disney, which is the worlds largest media company, but he has put together a portfolio of businesses that would make your head spin, including Pixar, ESPN and Lucasfilm. Bob Iger is also a highly respected and trusted board member of Apple.
The Star Wars Empire was built by George Lucas, which made 6 major films. It appears, that as time went by, George Lucas lost interest in making more Star Wars movies. This is where Bob Iger and Disney saw a brilliant opportunity, as Disney acquired LucasFilm along with the entire Star Wars Franchise for $4.05 Billion in 2012.
Purchasing LucasFilm has proven to one of the wisest investments Disney could make, as the Star Wars: The Force Awakens made close to a billion dollars in domestic box office alone in the United States and Canada, which makes it the highest grossing movie ever made. The Force Awakens set many other box office records, including being the fastest film to gross $1 Billion, which only took 12 days. It also set the record for being the biggest worldwide opening weekend, and single weekend gross at $529 Million.
Bob Iger is pictured above wearing a Rolex Oyster model. I have noticed him wearing many different Rolex models over the years.
There are supermodels, and there are Supermodels, or maybe I should say, there are supermodels, and there is Kate Upton. Kate Upton is considered to be one of the most beautiful woman alive today, and as we see in the image below, she appeared on the 100 Year Anniversary of Vanity Fair.
Kate Upton is pictured above wearing a stainless steel Rolex Datejust on an Oyster Bracelet, an in the photo below she is photographed on a private jet, sporting her yellow gold Rolex Day-Date, which looks fantastic on her!!!
Kate Upton appears in the video below with famous photographer and fellow Rolex wearer, Terry Richardson. Kate Upton was doing a photo shoot in New York with Terry Richardson, and he got her to do this impromptu 'Cat Daddy' dance back in 2012, when Kate was only 19 years old. So far this video has gotten over 26 Million Views.
Wade from Chicago took this absolutely stunning/over-the-top/mystifying/crazy beautiful lume shot of his ceramic Supercase Rolex Submariner. This has got to one of the prettiest lume shots I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!
Historically Rolex has always been extremely secretive and discreet, and no journalists in the past have ever been invited "INSIDE ROLEX" to explore and report on all four Rolex Manufacturing faclities in Switzerland.
In November 2013, this changed when Rolex invited Jake to take an unprecdented journey into the heart of Rolex to learn and report on everything he witnessed and learned.
This Super-Detailed 3 Part Story is a "MUST READ" story for anybody who wants to understand what really makes Rolex tick.
