Robert De Niro Rolex

...Rolex Coolness...

Robert De Niro
Academy Award Winner for Best Actor

Robert De Niro is considered to be one of the greatest actors in movie history. He has stared in many famous movies including The Godfather Part 2 (1974), Taxi Driver (1976), The Deer Hunter (1978), Raging Bull (1980), Once Upon A Time In America (1984), Brazil (1985), The Mission (1986), Angel Heart (1987), The Untouchables (1987), Good Fellas (1990), Cape Fear (1991), A Bronx Tale (1993), Casino (1995), Wag The Dog (1997), Jackie Brown (1997), Analyze This (1999), Meet the Parents (2000), and American Hustle (2013), just to name a few. 

Robert de Niro has been wearing Rolex watches for four decades as seen in the images below.

The Deer Hunter

Robert DeNiro wore this Stainless Steel Rolex Submariner in the Deer Hunter which won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1976...

15 Minutes

It has been forth that Robert De Niro wore a Rolex Daytona in the 2001 movie named "15 Minutes.", but after careful evaluation I don't think it is a Rolex. It sure looks like a vintage Daytona, but I don't think it is. If you look closely, you can see the watch is lacking chronograph pusher buttons. Usually, I wouldn't include a photo like this in a Rolex story, but I also specialize in busting all false Rolex myths, so I thought I would separate the fact from the fiction on this one.


Robert De Niro costared in the movie Showtime with Eddie Murphy, and in the photos below we see him wearing what appears to be a vintage stainless Rolex Oyster in this movie.

I could not help but notice that Eddie and Robert are kind of pointing at each other like in the photo below the movie poster.

Killer Elite

As we saw in the first photos of Robert de Diro in this story, he wore a Rolex Submariner 38 years ago in 1976, in the movie named The Deer Hunter. In the 2011 movie named Killer Elite, Robert de Niro also wore a vintage stainless steel Rolex Submariner (no date) as seen below. Ironically, this appears to be the same model he wore in The Deer Hunter. I doubt its the same watch, but definitely worth noting is looks like the same Rolex Submariner Reference 5512 or 5513.
