Actor Brian Kelly from the 1960s Family TV Show Flipper wearing his Trademark Stainless Rolex Submariner

Porter Ricks from Flipper

Actor Brian Kelly played the father Porter Ricks and Chief Warden at Coral Key Park and Marine Preserve in the family oriented action-adventure television program Flipper.

You can see him sporting his Stainless Steel Rolex Submariner in the first three shots.  Brian Kelly was the son of former Governor of Michigan, Harry Kelly.  Brian was definitely a stud as you can see.  

When I was a kid I loved this Show!!!  Now that I think about it the first time I ever saw a Stainless Steel Rolex Submariner was probably on this show.

After Brian Kelly retired from acting he went on to become a movie producer and was an executive producer of Blade Runner in 1982.

Rolex of the Day: Stainless and Platinum Yachtmaster

The glorious Stainless and Platinum Rolex Yachtmaster with the etched Platinum Bezel and matching Platinum dial.  In my opinion the Rolex Yachtmaster has the best lines of any Rolex. Essentially the Yachtmaster is a curvy streamlined Submariner.

Peter Sellers Rolex GMT Master from Casino Royal

In the James Bond epic surrealistic satire from 1967, Peter Sellers comedian wears a stainless steel Rolex GMT Master.

Of course you have to wonder if Rolex go the idea for the graphics on the Jaws advertisement below from this image where Peter Sellers is viewing the stunningly gorgeous Ursula Andres on his stainless GMT Master. Of course Ursula Andres starred in the Original James Bond Move staring Sean Connery as bond in 1962.
