An Ambassadors Vintage Rolex SEA-DWELLER

...Rolex Wrist Shot Of The Day...

An Ambassadors Vintage Rolex SEA-DWELLER

Jerril Santos is the Philippine Ambassador to Vietnam, and he is also a fan of Jake's Rolex World. Jerril sent in this excellent wrist shot of his now classic Rolex SEA-DWELLER, which he is wearing on his right wrist, Steve McQueen style, and he said:

Hi Jake.

I have been following Jake's Rolex World with keen interest. I am Filipino but I live in Vietnam. I have a Sea Dweller that has reliably kept time for me for the past 20 years and I thought I'd share a photo of it with you.

Regards and best wishes.

John Mayer on Collecting Watches Hodinkee Interview

John Mayer on Collecting Watches
Hodinkee Interview

Benjamin Clymer from Hodinkee recently interviewed singer, songwriter, guitarist, and fellow Hodinkee blogger, John Mayer about his watch collection. John Mayer is not only an amazing musician, but also a fascinating collector, who has an encyclopedic knowledge of vintage Rolex and Patek Philippe watches. 

John Mayer is filled with WISdom and truly the ultimate RIS–very impressive, and always insightful and interesting!!! As a fellow WIS/RIS, there is nothing better than hanging out with a good pal, talking watches. Listening to Benjamin and John profoundly wrap and riff on watches is music to my ears :-0

I noticed that it appears as if Benjamin from Hodinkee is sporting a Patek Philippe Reference 3940, and I also noticed John Mayer has some sort of Luminor Panerai in his pile of watches, but for some reason he does not talk about it in the video? Originally, it looked like a Luminor Panerai PAM372 to me, but upon a closer look it Looks like a Luminor Panerai PAM127, but it could also be an original Rolex made Panerai.

Women wearing Men's Rolex Watches began when Honor Blackman played Pussy Galore in the James Bond Movie, GoldFinger. The first really big female star to wear men's Rolex watches, was Elle Mcpherson. In this set of photos we see Hilary Duff sporting a Rolex Day-Date II. Hilary Duff is the first star I know of to wear the new Men's Rolex Day-Date II and doesn't it look great on her!!!

50th Anniversary Rolex Submariner

...Rolex Wirst Shot Of The Day...

50th Anniversary Rolex Submariner

I took this photo of my LV Submariner back in June of 2010, and at the time I was wearing it on a woven black Perlon Nylon strap, which is a great look. Something about the green bezel with the black dial, coupled with the black woven strap is really cool, and sporty.
