Of The Communist Party of The Soviet Union
Yellow Gold Rolex Datejust
Communism For The Masses–Capitalism For The Bosses
Karl Laschnikoff is a daily reader of Jake's Rolex World and he sent in the three first images in this story of Soviet Communist Leader, Leonid Brezhnev and East German President, Erich Honecker. In this first image, we see Leonid Brezhnev sporting his yellow gold Rolex Datejust on a Jubilee Bracelet.
Spirit of Détente
In the next two images taken in July of 1979, we see Soviet Leader, Leonid Brezhnev kissing East German President, Erich Honecker, and if you look closely, you notice Erich Honecker sporting the same model of yellow gold Rolex Datejust that Soviet Leader, Leonid Brezhnev is wearing in the photo above. Maybe that is why they are kissing so passionately!?!
Why are these dudes kissing so passionately? They are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the German Democratic Republic in June of 1979. These comrades were showing their sign of socialist solidarity, which had become standard since the Khruschev era. In the photo below you can see that Erich Honecker's Rolex Datejust is yellow gold.
Soviet Communist Leader Leonid Brezhnev is pictured below with U.S. President Nixon
In the photo below, we see the first President of Russia, Boris Yeltsin, sporting his stainless steel Rolex Datejust. It is ironic that so many Communist leaders wore Rolex Datejust watches!!! Even Chinese Chairman Moa wore a yellow Gold Rolex Datejust!!! So Did Cuban Communist Dictator Fidel Castro, and Che Guevara.
