Recently, in one of the greatest upsets in basketball finals history, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA Championship which I watched live, and it was quite a thrilling game (you can see the highlights in the videos at the bottom of this story.) The Cleveland Cavaliers were down 3 games to 1 to the Golden State Warriors, and managed to come back to win the Finals, which has never happened before in NBA Finals history. LeBron James is arguably the driving force that led the Cavalier to their Championship in 2016, and he is pictured below getting around two Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals.
LeBron James has won three NBA Championships in his amazing career (2012, 2103, 2016) as well as four NBA Most Valuable Player Awards (2009, 2010, 2012, 2013). LeBron James is widely considered to be one of the best basketball players in the history of the game.
I first noticed that LeBron James was wearing his Rolex Day-Date at the 2016 NBA Championship Parade when Hodinkee recently published a story on the subject, which included the photo below of LeBron James wearing his 41MM yellow gold Rolex Day-Date II.

LeBron James was not the only Cleveland Cavaliers team member rockin' his yellow Gold Rolex Day-Date, as I could not help but notice at least four team-members were also wearing yellow-gold Day-Date models including Mo Smith, Iman Shumpert and Tristan Thompson. Below we see Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert sporting his yellow gold Rolex Day-Date.

In this next image we see Tristan Thompson, who wearing his yellow gold Rolex Day-Date on June 22, 2016 at Cleveland Cavaliers Championship Parade.
Six years ago I discovered photos of Ronald Reagan wearing a stainless steel Rolex Datejust on a Jubilee Bracelet. These photos were taken during the Summer of 1965 on his California Ranch. Of course these photos were taken before he was even elected the Governor of California, so he was just an ordinary American Citizen who was semi-retired. In 2013, I discovered more photos of Ronald Reagan, while he was the President of The United States, wearing his Rolex.
"There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit." –Ronald Reagan
So this means, that Ronald Reagan is the second American President to wear a Rolex Datejust after Dwight Eisenhower. Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton wore Rolex Day-Dates, and I have heard Richard Nixon wore a Rolex, but I have still not been able to find a photo of him wearing a Rolex. I also think Harry Truman may have worn a Rolex Datejust, but I have not been able to document that either.
"I've often said there's nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse." –Ronald Reagan
"Each generation goes further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation. You will have opportunities beyond anything we have ever known." –Ronald Reagan
The photo below shows President Reagan on his ranch in 1983 chopping wood, and his is still wearing his stainless steel Rolex Datejust.
Jack Hanna is one of the most famous wildlife experts, and animal rights activists in the world. He is a naturalist and zooloigist and the Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, and served as the Director of the Zoo from 1973 to 1993. He is commonly referred to by his nickname of "Jungle Jack", and is well known for his appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, as well as with David Letterman.
"You have to touch the heart, to teach the mind."
Jack Hanna wears a Rolex Explorer II "Orange Hand", with the Polar White Dial, which is my favorite currently offered Rolex model, and I think it looks fantastic on him. Also, I might point out that Jack Hanna's energy very much reminds me of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, in that they both share a serious spirit of enquiry and exploration.
...Funny Rolex Moment In Time... Jon Cryer Alan Cousteau Submariner Two & A Half Men
Jon Cryer is starred on the mega-hit comedy TV-Show Two and a Half Men from 2003 to 2015. Most of those years he co-starred with Charlie Sheen, and both of them wore Rolex watches on the show. Jon wore a Submariner and Charlie wore a medium size stainless steel and Platinum Yatch-Master.
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.
