Presidents Wearing Presidents...

Speaking of Presidents wearing Rolex watches:

US President Dwight Eisenhower was the first known American President to wear a Rolex.  The Yellow Gold Rolex Datejust pictured below was a gift from Rolex to President Eisenhower in 1950 and it has his initials D.D.E. engraved on the back along with 5 stars.

In the future I will be doing an in-depth analysis on the American Presidents wearing Rolex watches as well as conducting an exploration into the origins of the name "Rolex President."

Stay tuned...
