Tom Cruise: Rolex Datejust


Enduring Classics

A few weeks ago we saw Tom Cruise wearing his stainless steel Rolex Datejust from the side view. Today we see the dial and confirm exactly which model and dial he is wearing. It appears to be an older Datejust, without the solid end links. By the way, I believe this is the same model and dial of Rolex Datejust that Daniel Craig–who plays James Bond–wears.

Jack Nicklaus and his trademark Rolex Day-Date...


Jack Nicklaus
A Lifetime With A Day-Date

According to golf legend, Jack Nickluas he has been wearing his Rolex Day-Date since early in his golf career. The first three photos below are from 1972 which means he has been wearing his trademark Rolex Day-Date for at least 40 years. If I recall correctly, he got his first Rolex in the early sixties which would mean he has been wearing Rolex for almost half a century!!!

A 6th Rolex On Daniel Craig...


A 6th Rolex on Daniel Craig

It appears that Daniel Craig who plays James Bond is a beyond RISitus & WISdom and is a Rolex Fanatic. I just spotted a 6th different Rolex model on him on the Charlie Rose Show. This time Daniel Craig is sporting what appears to be a Rolex Submariner [Reference 1680].

I believe it is a 1680 Submariner because if you look closely on the first image you notice the extremely tall crystal which is the trademark of the 1680.

Update: The more I look at the photos, the more I think he may be wearing his 6263 Daytona because I think I can see the two chronograph buttons.

What Did You Wear For President Obama's Inauguration?

President Obama's Inaugural Speech...


President Obama's Inagural Speech
The Page Has Been Turned...

I thought President Obama's Inaugural Speech was absolutely amazing. President Obama's speech may be the greatest political speech in history. The only other political speeches that come to mind that would be in the same class would be Dr. Martin Luther Kind Jr's "I Have A Dream" speech, President Kennedy's inauguration speech, as well as his Moon speech. Also Ronald Reagan's "Tear Down This Wall" speech. Enjoy...





President Obama's Oath of Office

In the video photo and video below President Obama is being sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts and President Obama has his hand on the same bible that Abraham Lincold was sworn in on. 


Ironically, President Obama appears to misspeak the oath, but it turns out that Chief Justice Roberts misspoke, and since President Obama is a Constitutional Scholar, he did not correct Chief Justice Roberts, but simply spoke the oath correctly. I think both men were under a tremendous amount of pressure and it appears President Obama started repeating the oath early, which probably threw Chief Justice Roberts off.


The oath to be taken by the President on first entering to office is specified in Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States Of American and it reads:

"I (Name) do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."





Second Time Around

Update: On Wednesday, President Ombama retook the oath with Chief Justice Roberts in the White House to make sure it was correct:

Air & Simple Gifts: Yo Yo Ma Wearing A Rolex Datejust...


Air & Simple Gifts

Just before President Obama was sworn in yesterday as the new President of the United States, Yo Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, Gagbriela Montero, Anthony McGill performed this magnificent and spiritually uplifting new piece written just for the inauguration by classical composer John William Named "Air & Simple Gifts." 



I could not help but notice Yo You Ma is wearing what appears to be a stainless Rolex Datejust or a Day-Date with an Oyster Bracelet.
