Rolex Coolness: John Travolta...

...Profiles In Rolex Coolness...

John Travolta
An Amazing Career with Rolex Keeping The Time Of His Life

John Travolta is one of the most famous and successful actors in history, as well as being a cinema producer, dancer and singer. He was also an Ambassador for the Brietling brand of watches, but before that, he wore Rolex watches as seen in the photos below.

John Travolta has worn many different Rolex watches in his far ranging career. It the photos above, we see him wearing a stainless steel Datejust, and in the photos below we see him wearing a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date.

John Travolta is pictured below with his arm around Marilu Henner. 

Marilu Henner is an unusual woman, when it comes to her amazing memory skill as witnessed in the videos below.

In the photo below we see John Travolta wearing his yellow gold Rolex Day-Date, standing in between Sylvester Stallone and Chevy Chase. I always like seeing photos of people together that all wear Rolex, which is the case below.

John Travolta is pictured below wearing in the 2016 movie titled "The People V. OJ".  It is ironic that John Travolta wore an Everose Rolex Daytona with a ceramic bezel, as he played the role of O.J. Simpson defense attorney, Robert Shapiro. The historical 'continuity error' challenge is that this Rolex watch model did not exist back in the 1995 :-0

John Travolta is pictured below wearing a Yellow Gold Rolex Submariner, which he wore in the 2004 movie, titled, "The Punisher".

An Amazing Career

John Travolta's career has been absolutely amazing. He began starring on the 1970's TV show, Welcome Back Kotter where he played Vinny Barbarino which ran from 1975 to 1979.

Where did John Travolta learn how to dance? In this clip from Welcome Back Kotter, we see John rockin' out pretty hard and it is not difficult to imagine him dancing in Saturday Night Fever and Grease.

Saturday Night Fever

John Travolta went on to star in the blockbuster film, Saturday Night Fever, and followed up by starring with Olivia Newton-John in the blockbuster, Grease.

The Saturday Night Fever soundtrack broke multiple record industry records and became the highest-selling record album in recording history, by selling more than 40 million copies, and to this day it remains one of the top five best-selling soundtracks of all time, and to this day it is believed to be in the top 10 best selling albums of all time, world-wide.

In this next video we see the Bee Gees performing You Should Be Dancing from the Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack. The Bee Gees consisted of three brothers from Australia named, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, and they are one of the best selling bands in history. In this next video we see the Bee Gees joined by their younger brother, Andy Gibb, and if you look closely you will notice it really looks like Andy Gibb is wearing a Rolex GMT...


Grease was another mega-hit that starred John Travolta, and Barry Gibb who was the lead singer for the Bee Gees wrote the title song for the Grease soundtrack which Frankie Valli performed, which went on to become the number 1 song on the billboards.
