Scott is a fan of Jake's Rolex World and he sent these photo of his new SEA-Dweller model, and mentioned he took these awesome photos over the weekend. the coolest detail on the new SEA-DWELLER are the single minute markers on the bezel insert, which look like the Milsub's of yesteryear, as well as its older-brother, which is the DEEP-SEA SEA-DWELLER.

Piero is a fan of Jake's Rolex Watch Blog and he sent in these photos of his beautiful vintage Rolex Anti-Magnetic Chronograph, which is all original. Notice it has three different scales running around the outer edge of the dial, including a TÉLÉMÈTRE scale.
Michael Bublé is not only an amazing singer, with many career achievements, but he is also a Rolex Ambassador. This should come as no surprise, since in so many ways he epitomizes and embodies the Rolex zeitgeist. I say this because he is completely classic, in an updated modern, timeless way.
Michael Bublé married Luisana Lopilato in 2011, and wrote a song about her that she appeared in the video for, which is named, "I just haven't met you yet." You can watch the video below:
Calgary is a reader of Jake's Rolex World and he recently sent in the following image with a note:
Just wanted to share with you a nice photo with my 1999 GMT-Master II and 2008 Mustang GT.
Not a bad match at all is it?
Take care mate & great work, awesome blogs!
Of course, the cool thing about this photo is how the red, blue and silver on the Pespi bezel match the red, blue and silver of the mustang logo. I hope Rolex brings back the stainless steel GMT-Master with the pepsi bezel, since it is so trademark iconic!!! *Note: I used the term "Vintage" to describe the 2008, Mustang, as well as the 1999 GMT. Vintage in my mind is any model no longer made. Just like a bottle of wine from 2008 would be a "Vintage 2008" wine.
This amazing photo reminds me of that classic scene in Willy Wonka In The Chocolate Factory where Willy and his Grandfather (The Man from Chico & The Man ;-) got stuck in the bubble machine and floated to the top in the bubbles...
Who is the most beautiful and elegant women that ever lived? Some might say, Sophia Loren, while others might say Princess Grace is arguably the most beautiful and elegant woman that ever lived. One thing both beauties shared is their taste in the finer things in life, including both wearing Yellow Gold 26MM Rolex Lady Date watches.
In the photo below, we see Princess Grace of Monaco wearing her yellow gold Rolex Lady Date in 1972.
The photo above and below were taken at a swimming competition in Palm Beach, Monte Carlo in 1972. Princess Grace is extremely chic and stylish, and she is wearing a Pucci beach dress. Princess Grace is pictured below while attending a swimming commotion, and she is sitting next to her husband, Prince Rainier, and her their children, Prince Albert, Princess Caroline, and Princess Stéphanie are sitting below them. If you look closely you can see Princess Caroline is also wearing her two-tone Rolex ladies Datejust.
In the two photos below taken in 1978, we see Princess Grace with her daughter, Princess Caroline, who also wears Rolex watches. It is not so easy to see, but in the photo below we see Princess Grace wearing her Rolex Lady Date.
Princess Grace is pictured below with Princess Caroline in 1973, and they are both wearing Rolex watches.

Historically Rolex has always been extremely secretive and discreet, and no journalists in the past have ever been invited "INSIDE ROLEX" to explore and report on all four Rolex Manufacturing faclities in Switzerland.
In November 2013, this changed when Rolex invited Jake to take an unprecdented journey into the heart of Rolex to learn and report on everything he witnessed and learned.
