Leonard Nimoy Belongs To The Ages 1931-2015


Leonard Nimoy
Belongs To The Ages
1931-2015

Leonard Nimoy, played one of the most beloved science fiction characters in his rolex as Mr. Spock on Star Trek, and he passed away today. Leonard Nimoy was an amazing human being, and will be dearly missed by so many of his international fans. What does Mr. Spock and Star Trek have to do with Rolex? 

Interested to learn how one of the most decorated NASA Astronauts in history told me a story about how the Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master he wore on the International Space Station was almost identical to one he saw on Star Trek? Click here to see all my past Star Trek Rolex coverage, including how both Captain Kirk actors wore Rolex Submariners in real life..

Rolex Coolness: Michael Bublé Two-Tone Rolex Datejust...


...Rolex Coolness... 

Michael Bublé
An Amazing Career Keeping Time With Rolex


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:

Rolex Hand In Glove Shot Of The Day


...Rolex Hand In Glove Shot Of The Day...

Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master
Vintage Rolex Driving A Vintage Mustang

Calgary is a reader of Jake's Rolex World and he recently sent in the following image with a note:

Hello Jake,

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!

Best,

Dogu



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.

Timeless Elegant Beauty

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.

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.


Princess Caroline is pictured below on the cover of People Magazine in 1978, and she is wearing her two tone Lady-Date Rolex.
