Cecilia Bartoli Roman Diva


...Rolex Hotness...

Cecilia Bartoli
Roman Diva

5 Time Grammy Winner

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: CEO Of Disney



...Rolex Super Coolness...


The King Of Hollywood


Bob Iger

CEO Of Disney
Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

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 photo below of Bob Iger wearing his new Rolex Daytona  appears courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, which recently wrote an amazing article about his career achievements.





Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

40MM Reference 116500LN: Monobloc Cerachrom Bezel

Rolex introduced the new white dial Rolex Cosmograph Daytona with a black ceramic bezel, which Bob Iger is wearing in the photo above, earlier this year at BaselWorld 2016. From what I understand, this model is still in short supply and hard to find.


STAR WARS

THE RETURN OF THE FRANCHISE



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.













Bob Iger is not the first CEO of Disney to wear a Rolex! Walt Disney himself wore a yellow gold Rolex Datejust, as you can see in the photos below. If you think about it, Walt Disney had much in common with Rolex founder, Hans Wilsdorf, in the sense they both left behind amazingly timeless and successful companies that people love!!!


"Think beyond your lifetime if you want to do something truly great." 
—Walt Disney


"Technology extends the purview of the story-teller."

Supermodel & Actress

Yellow Gold Rolex Day-Date

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 is pictured below with Rolex Ambassador and Golf Legend, Arnold Palmer. I recently published a fascinating story about The British Open, that featured Arnold Palmer.






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.
