Sharon Stone Submariner...


...Rolex Hotness...


Sharon Stone

The First Modern Actress To Wear Men's Rolex Watches?


Sounds kind of like Jerry Seinfeld saying "What is the deal with skydivers wearing helmets? Do they really think the helmet is going to do anything?" ;-))))))

Sharon Stone is one beautiful woman and she surely loves wearing Rolex watches as seen in this vintage 1980s shot!!! Sharon is wearing a two-tone Submariner with a black dial and bezel; a two-tone 36mm Datejust with a blue dial and I can't make out the third Rolex sandwiched in the middle. I just think I can make out an Oyster bracelet.



I wonder if it was Sharon Stone or Elle Macpherson who started the trend of women wearing men's Rolex watches? Actually the first woman I have ever been able to document wearing a man's Rolex actress, Honor Blackman when she played Pussy Galore in Goldfinger in 1964.

Then, just two years later in 1966, we see Vanessa Redgrave in the movie Blow Up sporting a stainless steel Rolex Submariner on a black strap. I always thought it was Elle Macpherson, but now I am wondering if it was Sharon? Just to conclude, it seem to have been a trend in movies in the mid 1960s, and then came back in the late 1980s.

Today we sell the vast majority (98%+) of women who wear Rolex watches wearing men's 36mm and 40mm watches. It is kind of interesting when you study the symbolism in this photo of Sharon Stone, wearing a man's tailored shirt and necktie, with men's boxer shorts on.

Sharon Stone is probably best known for costarring in the movie, Basic Instinct with Michael Douglas.






Sharen Stone starred in the science fiction movie, Sphere and she wore a her Stainless Submariner as seen below.

Sharon Stone is pictured below on the cover of the French ELLE Magazine wearing her Rolex Submariner.







If you go back in time far enough, you can see Sharon Stone wearing a ladies Rolex, as we see in the photos taken 23 years ago in 1986 when Ronald Reagan was still the President of the United States–many moons ago...

First Known Tiffany & CO. Rolex Submariner Ad Big Crown Submariner



First Known Tiffany & CO. Rolex Submariner Ad

The Elusive Big-Crown 
James Bond Submariner
[Reference 5510]

I think this Tiffany & CO., Ad is from 1960 and it is the earliest one I have ever seen that showcases a Rolex Submariner. Very Cool!!! The Reference 5508 Submariner was rated to 100 meters, and the 5510 was the first to be rated to 200 meters.

HISTORY OF THE ROLEX SEA-DWELLER: Gold Master Version



Gold Master Final Version

HISTORY OF THE ROLEX SEA-DWELLER
Rolex's Conquest Of The Ocean


Jose from Perezcope.com just completed his last major update of his amazing HISTORY OF THE ROLEX SEA-DWELLER poster, and it is some kind of wonderful. The latest version of the poster ads much more fascinating detail as well a great deal of refinement. For instance, the Titanic ship grew tremendously to achieve a much better scale, and the USS Thresher Submariner was added to the timeline. Probably, the most outstanding new detail is the addition of the James Cameron DEEP-SEA is pictured on the far right. Since the gradient on the Cameron DEAP-SEA is very similar to the gradient on the poster, it really pops!!



I have worked with Jose on this poster for a long time now discussing historic, language and layout details. That being said, Jose deserves 100% of the credit for making this poster AMAZING!!!! I remember when Jose got started, and sent me the first draft, and I thought it was very cool, but I have to say the final version you are seeing above is an absolute work of high-art. On a side-note, Jose recently mentioned to me he is working on a Rolex Daytona Timeline Poster, which I am certain will be incredible!!!

TIP 1: THE HISTORY OF THE ROLEX SEA-DWELLER Poster has a 16x9 aspect ratio making it perfect to display on a computer monitor, or flat screen TV. In order to download the highest resolution version, right-mouse-click on the poster above, and select, "Open Image In New Window".

At first glance the most recent poster may not look that different, but it is almost night-and-day more detailed than the last version he published. I included one of the last versions of the poster (as seen below) that I published on May 4, 2017, for comparison sake.

TIP 2: To compare both posters, single-click on one in your browser window, which will take you into slide-show view. Then you can use the left and right arrows to instantly jump back and forth to compare both posters. 


Update July 19, 2017: Jose had one last minor update to the poster, thus the version seen above now is the most recent, and I believe, final-final...
