John Travolta
An Amazing Career with Rolex Keeping The Time Of His Life

John Travolta is one of the most famous and successful actors in history. Today he is a an Ambassador for the Brietling brand of watches, but before that, he wore Rolex watches as seen in the photos below.

John Travolta is pictured below wearing a Rolex Submariner, which he wore in the 2001 movie, Swordfish.

An Amazing Career

John Travolta's career has been absolutely amazing. He began starring on the 1970's TV show, Welcome Back Kotter where he played Vinny Barbarino which ran from 1975 to 1979.

Where did John Travolta learn how to dance? In this clip from Welcome Back Kotter, we see John rockin' out pretty hard and it is not difficult to imaging him dancing in Saturday Night Fever and Grease.

Saturday Night Fever

John Travolta went on to star in the blockbuster film, Saturday Night Fever, and followed up by starring with Olivia Newton-John in the blockbuster, Grease.

The Saturday Night Fever soundtrack broke multiple record industry records and became the highest-selling record album in recording history, be selling more than 40 Million copies, and to this day it remains one of the top five best-selling soundtracks of all time, and to this day it is believed to be remain in the top 10 yes selling albums of all time, world-wide.

In this next video we see the Bee Gees performing You Should Be Dancing from the Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack. The Bee Gees consisted of three brothers from Australia named, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, and they are one of the best selling bands in history. In this next video we see the Bee Gees joined by their younger brother, Andy Gibb, and if you look closely you will notice it really looks like Andy Gibb is wearing a Rolex GMT...


Grease was another mega-hit that starred John Travolta, and Barry Gibb who was the lead singer for the Bee Gees wrote the title song for the Grease soundtrack which Frankie Valli performed, which went on to become the number 1 song on the billboards.

Wow, everyone on that flight got a story to tell... "Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, this is Captain Travolta welcoming you aboard Quantas Airlines..."

I think he endorses (officially, anyway) Breitling watches, although this shot may have been taken well before that. I also think it's interesting that he selected a Date-Just, rather than the obvious GMT. The DJ looks just right in this shot.

Nice pic - thanks for posting it.
