The 3 Most Popular American's Wore Gold Rolex Watches

...MIT Pantheon Study...

Massachusetts Institute Of Technology
Deep Research Reveals Most Historically Popular Americans

The Three Most Historically Popular Americans
Wore Yellow Gold Rolex Watches

What do Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Elvis Presley & Walt Disney all have in common? According to the Massachusetts Institute Of Technology (MIT) Pantheon study, they are ranked as the top three most popular Americans in a list of the 25 Most Famous Americans

This behemoth Massachusetts Institute Of Technology undertaking was completed by the MIT Media Lab, which gauges the "global popularity of historical characters". This is achieved by many methods, including the analysis of data on Wikipedia page views.

Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, another thing the top three most historically popular American's have in common is they all wore yellow gold Rolex watches!!! That is a pretty profound statistic if you think about it. Below is a list of all famous American's who wore/wear Rolex:

#1. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Yellow Gold Rolex Datejust

It is not surprising to learn that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is the most popular American in history today, and it is also does not surprise me that he wore a yellow gold Rolex Datejust. Over the years, I have written, what is arguably the most detailed and comprehensive biographical story of Dr. Kings life achievements, which I highly recommend reading.

#2. Elvis Presley
Yellow Gold King Midas

I am also not surprised that Elvis Presley is the second most popular American today. Years ago, after discovering Elvis Presley wore a Rolex King Midas, I worked with Graceland to obtain exclusive photos of his super-cool, limited-edition Rolex King Midas, so I could best share this very cool story.

#3. Walt Disney
Yellow Gold Rolex Datejust

Walt Disney created an amazing world of imagination that is even more popular today, and Disney's long-term success arguably parallels Rolex success, in the sense that truly timeless things endure. In the past I wrote extensively about Walt Disney's success, and showed photos of him wearing his yellow gold Rolex Datejust.

More Top 25 Popular American's Wearing Rolex

Other notable Americans who wore Rolex watches are listed below. As one third of the top 25 most popular American's in history wore/wear Rolex watches, which is impressive. 

This is particularly impressive when you discover many of the most famous American's today lived long before Rolex was founded and that list includes Thomas Jefferson at #24, Mark Twain at #21, Jimi Hendrix at #11, Thomas Edison at #8, George Washington at #7, Edgar Allan Poe at #5, and Benjamin Franklin at #4.

#9. Johnny Depp
Rolex Submariner

Actor Johny Depp is pictured below wearing a Rolex Submariner and he is hanging out with his pal, Terry Richardson who is a famous fashion and portrait photographer, who is rocking a Rolex Day-Date.

#10. Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln was rated number ten, and although he did not wear a Rolex, since Rolex did not exist in the time of his life, it is fascinating to note Rolex made a "Lincoln" model, which is pictured below.

#12. Andy Warhol
Yellow Gold Lady Date

Women have been wearing men's Rolex watches since Pussy Galore first sported a Pepsi GMT-Master in 1964 when she co-starred next to Sir Sean Connery in the James Bond movie named Goldfinger. Slowly but surely women began wearing men's Rolex watches, and today, to a large extent all Rolex watches have become unisex. But what about men wearing women's Rolex watches? There have been a few, which include ultra-famous pop artist and photographer, Andy Warhol, as seen below. Warhol also wore men's size Rolex watches as well. Dude looks like a Lady!?! 

#16. Brad Pitt
Yellow Gold Rolex GMT-Master

Alright, so who is cooler than Brad Pitt today? In many ways, he is similar to a modern Steve McQueen. Brad Pitt has worn many different Rolex models throughout his amazingly successful career.

#17. Michael Jackson
Rolex Daytona

The King Of Pop and his fellow Jackson 5 brothers all wear Rolex. I have not done a story yet on Michael Jackson, but in the future I plan to.

#22. Earnest Hemingway
Rolex Oyster Perpetual

Earnest Hemingway is arguably one of the most loved writers of the 20th Century. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. I have never published photos of Hemingway wearing his Rolex Oyster Perpetual in the past, so this is the first time. In the future, I plan to write a detailed story about his love of Rolex.
