New Brand Ambassador: Kyle Edmund

Kyle Edmund

Britain's No. 1 in Tennis 

Becomes Rolex' Newest Ambassador 

I've mentioned before that I'm a tennis fan, so I was excited to see the talented 23-year-old British player join the Rolex family. I wasn't surprised that he was sporting the 39-mm white-dial Oyster Perpetual on his official picture. The OP has been a featured watch on Rolex website's front page lately. It is such a perfect design. 

Kyle Edmund told his Twitter followers last week that working with Rolex is “an incredible moment for me. Proud to partner with such a prestigious brand Rolex. Looking forward to being part of the team.” The announcement was made just before the Laver Cup began in Chicago, a Cup that his team won Sunday. I wrote about it on Twitter.

The Laver Cup was created two years ago by Roger Federer who approached Rolex to sponsor the championship. It was named after Australian tennis legend Rod Laver who is also a Rolex brand ambassador. 

The Laver Cup is like nothing else: it pits Europe against the rest of the world and includes other tennis legends like Björn Borg, the team captain for Europe, and John McEnroe. It is fun to see so many tennis stars on one stage. Europe won.

I love the Rolex Yacht-Master that Kyle is wearing. I've tried one on at my AD. I was amazed how the Oysterflex bracelet makes it so comfortable to wear. The inside of the bracelet is equipped with a patented longitudinal cushion system that stabilizes the watch on the wrist. I also love bi-directional bezels (I don't dive but use my bezels all the time). 

It is the perfect bracelet when you're raising the Laver Cup filled with Champagne, as you celebrate a victory with Roger Federer and Björn Borg, two tennis legends, two fellow Rolex ambassadors.

"My name is Edmund, Kyle Edmund." The British athlete wears the Yacht-Master very well with a grey suit and a white shirt. The black bracelet creates a good contrast with the grey suit. The gold on the case dresses it up. Bulgarian tennis player Grigor Dimitrov, left, also wears a Yacht-Master. 

Below we can see both Edmund and Dimitrov (who makes a face) wearing Yacht-Masters. 

Dimitrov is also a Rolex ambassador.

This year the Laver Cup took place in Chicago, but next year the tennis stars will gather very close to Rolex headquarters: Geneva!

Quincy Jones Netflix Documentary Debuts

Quincy Jones

Netflix Documentary Debuts

Yellow Gold Rolex GMT Master II
50th Anniversary Celebration Model with Green Dial
Reference 116718LN

Quincy Jones is an international musical treasure and his career achievements as a composer and arranger are unparalleled. Netflix debuted what they referred to as the "Definitive Documentary" on Quincy Jones life, and it was AMAZING!!! Quincy sports his yellow gold Rolex GMT-Master throughout the documentary as seen below.

The screenshot below from the "QUINCY" documentary shows Quincy Jones playing the piano and on his left wrist we see his yellow gold Rolex GMT-Master and on his right pinkie, we see Quincy wearing Frank Sinatra's yellow gold pinkie ring he wore for 40 years until he passed away. The ring features Frank Sinatra's family crest from Sicily. Frank Sinatra left his pinkie ring to Quincy Jones who has been wearing it ever since.

Fly Me To The Moon

Quincy Jones arranged and conducted the music in the video below that features Frank Sinatra singing with Count Basie playing piano in 1965. This video is considered to be Frank's best performances of "Fly Me To the Moon." Fly Me To The Moon was the first song ever played on the moon—by Buz Aldrin during the Apollo 11 landing. At 9:00minutes into the video you can see Frank wearing his yellow gold pinkie ring as he introduces Quincy Jones.

Frank Sinatra gave Quincy Jones his nickname of "Q", and both men absolutely adored each other.

Quincy Jones produced Michael Jackson's album Thriller, is the best selling international album in history.

The Quincy Jones Documentary was directed and produced by one of Quincy's daughers and is AMAZING...

Quincy Jones learned how to play many different musical instruments when he was young and ended up focusing on playing the trumpet. Quincy (right) is pictured below with Dizzy Gillespie (center) back in 1955 in New York.

Photo above was taken by Herman Leonard in 1955 in New York City:
 Joe Gordon, E.V. Perry, Dizzy Gillespie, Carl Warwick & Quincy Jones,

Quincy Jones is pictured below with Dizzy Gillespie who is wearing his trademark Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master back in the 1960s.

It is kind of ironic that Quincy Jones is wearing a GMT-Master a half-century after the photo above was taken!

The screenshot below is from the QUINCY documenary and it shows Dizzy Gillespie wispering to country music legend Willie Neslon and notice Quincy Jones is wearing his yellow gold Rolex GMT-Master.

The wristshot below shows a straight on of Quincy Jones yellow gold Rolex GMT-Master.

I have been publishing Jake's Rolex World for 11 years now, and in that time my banner has never changed, and if you look closely, on the right side you  will notice it features the 50th Anniversary Yellow Gold Rolex GMT-Master with the forsest green dial.
Dr. Dre 
Dr. Dre is featured in the Quincy Jones documentary is a podcast recording session that takes place at Quincy's home in Bel Air, California and notice Dr. Dre is wearing his yellow gold Rolex Masterpiece Day-Date.

In the photo below from the Quincy documentary we see a screengrab from a video that was taken decades ago, which shows a young Dr. Dre sporting a yellow Gold Rolex President.

Pete Davidson: Youngest Cast Member at SNL


Pete Davidson

SNL Youngest Star Wears Rolex

 By Capt. DANNY CRIVELLO           

As a new season of Saturday Night Live begins next week, all eyes are on Pete Davidson who is the first SNL cast member to be born in the 1990s. In the last four years, the 24-year-old has steadily become one of the show’s most valuable players. 

Pete is from New York. His father was a firefighter who died in service during the September 11 attacks; he was last seen running up the stairs of the World Trade Center, just prior to its collapse. Pete, who was seven years old at the time, was profoundly affected by the loss. He turned to comedy to cope.

I'm a big fan of Saturday Night Live and I've been watching Pete for a while. He is truly talented. He joined the cast of SNL during the 2014 season at the age of 20! 

I always like seeing young, rising stars choosing mechanical watch brands like Rolex. Steel sports Rolexes might be in high demand, but for the youth, gold is definitely in! 

Pete is currently engaged to music star Ariana Grande. He announced the engagement on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Drinking Coffee & Talking Rolex

Adrian from Bark and Jack recently published this fascinating video where he discusses the history of  Rolex retail pricing. I recently wrote a story that addressed some of the issues having to do with Rolex Supply and Demand which is perhaps on-point for this issue. I also discussed this issue in a video interview with Clyve, The Watch Wrangler.

Yellow Gold Rolex GMT-Master

....Rolex Studio Shot Of The Day....

Yellow Gold Rolex GMT-Master

Bakelite Bezel

The photo below of the vintage Rolex GMT-Master appears courtesy of Christie's Auction house, and is a beauty indeed! This is a very early yellow gold GMT, as it has the sword hands, which lack the traditional Mercedes Marker on the hour had, and it also has the tiny arrowhead on the 24-hour hand. The dial on this watch has nipple markers, and more importantly a very rare original brown bakelite bezel insert, with matching yellow gold 24-hour time numerals.
