1960s French Rolex Submariner Ads


1960s French Rolex Submariner Ads

Emmanuel from France is a fan of Jake's Rolex World and he recently sent in some really cool French Rolex ads from 1964 though 1966, which he found in a French magazine from the 1960s named, "Plongées", which was a scuba-diving magazine. The image below of the diver wearing a Rolex Submariner appeared in a French Magazine named "Géo", which was similar to National Geographic. Thank you so much for sharing these really cool ads with us Emmanuel!!!

Rolex Coolness: Michael Caine...


Academy Award Winning Actor

...Rolex Coolness...

Sir Michael Caine

Rolex Day-Date

Michael Caine is and Academy Award winning actor who has enjoyed an incredible career. He is pictured below sporting his Rolex Day-Date.





...My Name Is Michael Caine...

Michael Caine was unique in the sense that he was the first "Cockney" Hearthrob. In other words, he was the first major movie star/hunk with a Cockney (East London) accent. In many ways his appeal was based upon his "I'm every man" persona, coupled with the fact that he also had a rugged and regal way about him.





1969 Movie
The Italian Job

Below is the opening credit section of the 1969 cult classic which Michael Caine starred it named The Italian Job. It features a 1969 Lamborghini P400S Mura V12 driving through the Italian Alps, while Matt Monroe sings his classic song "On Days Like These." You can learn much more about the 1969 Lamborghini Miura on Jake's Car World from Jerry Seinfeld. 



1971 Movie
Get Carter

Micheal Caine starred in Get Carter in 1971, which was a huge it in the U.K., so much so it was declared to be the best U.K. film ever made.









1984 Madness Song
My Name Is Michael Caine

Madness is one of my favorite bands of all time, and I remember this song from when I was in high school, titled, My Name Is Michael Caine.



1988 Movie
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Michael Caine wore a yellow gold Rolex Oyster-Quartz, Day-Date (Reference 19018) in the 1988 movie named Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which co-starred Steve Martin.

Chapter 9: The First SEA-DWELLER's Doctor George Bond. U.S. Navy Project Genesis and Jacques Cousteau & Project CONSHELF.


The Complete History Of
The Rolex Submariner & SEA-DWELLER
Rolex's Conquest Of The Ocean

Chapter 9: The First SEA-DWELLER's
Doctor George Bond. U.S. Navy Project Genesis 
and Jacques Cousteau & Project CONSHELF.

It Is hard to believe I began working on my 18 Chapter Series on the History of The Rolex Submariner and SEA-DWELLER eight years ago! I saved this chapter, as the last chapter, which ironically ties together the nexus between the development of the Rolex Submariner and SEA-DWELLER–in what appears to be a never-ending untold story.

The photo below was taken in 1968, and it shows U.S. Navy Doctor George Bond being interviewed with his close associate, Captain Jacques-Yves Coustea, who is the greatest explorer in history. In the interview they were discussing U.S. Navy SEALAB III.

"What is a scientist after all? It is a curious man looking through a keyhole, the keyhole of nature, trying to know what's going on." –Jacques-Yves Cousteau 





Jacques-Yves Cousteau
The First Rolex Submariner

Jacques Yves-Cousteau is considered to be the father of Scuba Diving, and he worked with Rolex in the early 1950s to develop the Rolex Submariner as seen on his wrist below in 1953.


Jacques-Yves Cousteau is pictured above and below in 1953 while filming his seminal underwater documentary titled "The Silent World", which won him the Academy Award that year for best documentary. 



Jacques-Yves Cousteau was also instrumental in the development of the Rolex SEA-DWELLER along with the U.S. Navy SEALAB Program, and in the future, when I complete this chapter, I will go into more detail on this fascinating subject. 


Below you can watch an episode of The Undersea World Of Jacques Cousteau which covers Conshelf.


Below you can watch Jacques-Yves Cousteau's Academy Award winning 1964 movie titled, World Without Sun, which chronicles his Conshelf mission.
