Academy Award Winner for Best Actor

...Rolex Coolness...

Nicolas Cage

A Brilliant Career with Rolex Keeping Time

Nicolas Cage is one of many famous actors who has won the Academy Award for Best Actor, that have worn Rolex watches. Nicolas Cage's birth name was Nicolas Coppola is an amazing actor and has starred in many major motion pictures including Valley Girl (1983), Birdy (1984), Peggy Sue Got Married (1986), Raising Arizona (1987), Moonstruck (1987), Wild at Heart (1990), The Rock (1996), Face/Off (1997), Con Air (1997), City of Angels (1998), Adaptation (2002), to name only a few. He is the nephew of leading director, Francis Ford Coppola and actress Talia Shire, and is the cousin of directors Sofia Coppola and Roman Coppola.




Nicolas Cage is pictured above wearing what would appear to be a yellow gold Rolex Datejust. on a jubilee bracelet, but if you examine it closely, he is wearing a Rolex Moonphase Reference 6062. Nicolas was married to Elvis Presley's daughter,  Lisa Marie Presley, and if you look closely in the photo below, Nicolas is rockin' his Rolex Moonphase 6062. 






This is one of the most beautiful Rolex models ever made. It is an annual calendar "triple-date" moon phase with star indices that was made 68 years ago in 1950. It is simple yet sophisticated and in like-new condition. This beauty was auctioned five years ago by Christie's in Geneva, Switzerland on November 16, 2005, for $594,155.




In the photo below we see Nicolas Cage with Lisa Marie Presley and he is wearing a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date.




Ironically I have a personal memory of Nicolas Cage. I used to visit the original Tower Records store located in San Francisco's Northbeach, on Columbus Street, near Fisherman's Warf. One day I was in Tower Records, in the later 1980s, and I had a small pile of CDs I was getting ready to purchase. It seems like every time I would go into Tower Records I would end up buy 10 CDs, which seemed like a lot at a time. So one day I am in Tower, and I see this dude walking around with a cart full of CDs. He must have had 30-40 CDs, and I noticed he was walking around and he would pick up a CD he seemed to recognize and without any hesitation put it in his basket. All of sudden I recognized it was Nicolas Cage :-)

In a recent story, Danny published a story named "Rolex in the Movies: Cash on Your Wrist-Rolex as Currency", in which he included images from the two Nicolas Cage movies below:





Honeymoon in Vegas


1992

Nicolas Cage has probably worn Rolex watches in more movies than any other actor. in the image below we see Nicolas wearing three Rolex watches in the photo with Sarah Jessica Parker.




Maybe he got the idea from Fidel Castro to wear a Day-Date and a Submariner at the same time on one wrist?
