Phil Collins Yachtmaster...

Phil Collins Yachtmaster

Amazing British singer/songwriter Phil Collins is seen in the photo below sporting his stainless steel and platinum Rolex Yachtmaster. Of course, Phil Collins started with the band Genesis and went on to have an ultra-successful solo career.

Since we just saw Pink Floyd perform in London in 2005 at Live 8, I thought I would take you back to London for the original Live Aid in 1985, almost a quarter of a century ago. Amazing performance and Phil is wearing a Platinum Day-Date which you get a great view of toward the end of the song (not to mention that mullet which is all business in the front, and party in the back ;-)

I included, this second video from the animated Tarzan movie which is just a really nice song. Enjoy:

An Italian Submariner

Gianvittorio Molteni from Milan, Italy is a big fan of Jake's Rolex Watch Blog. He sent in the superb photo of his vintage Rolex Submariner [Reference 5513] from 1964, which is all original with the gilt dial and domed crystal twin crown. He mentioned that his friend and talented photographer Luciano Cipullo took this great photo.

Thanks for sending in this great shot Gianvittorio!!!

By the way, I think this is the same Rolex Reference 5513 that Steve McQueen is wearing in the photos below this post.
