Rolex Hotness:Leryn Franco Olympic Athlete & Model

...It's A Man's World...

Rolex Hotness: Leryn Franco
Olympic Athlete & Model

Frédéric from Belgium is a big fan and daily reader of Jake's Rolex World. He sent in the photo of Leryn Franco and said:

"A Beautiful Watch On A Beautiful Woman"

I titled this post by saying "It's a Man's World" because, starting with Honor Blackman playing the role of Pussy Galore, beside Sean Connery in Goldfinger, the ladies have been wearing men's Rolex watches, and just a couple of years after Rolex steps up the men's Rolex watches in size, the ladies are wearing the big Rolex watches, as we see Leryn Franco doing in this photo.

Get the double entendre? It's a Man's world (with the ladies wearing men's watches ;-) Look at how big that Rolex DEEPSEA SEA-DWELER looks on Leryn? She's pulling it off pretty good though!?!

Rolex Hotness: Pussy Galore
The First Woman To Wear A Man's Rolex
James Bond Goldfinger Star

As I mentioned earlier in this post, Honor Blackman played Pussy Galore in the early James Bond Thriller, Goldfinger, and as such, she was the first woman to sport a man's Sport Rolex watch. Today, many more women wear men's sport Rolex watches than not, which is just fine by me ;-)

James Brown & Luciano Pavarotti
It's A Man's World

This video featuring our dearly departed James Brown and Luciano Pavarotti, is hauntingly magnificent...
