Steve McQueen & Paul Newman The Towering Inferno Movie [1974]


...The Kings Of Rolex Coolness...

Steve McQueen & Paul Newman
The Towering Inferno Movie [1974]

What could be cooler than a movie starring Steve McQueen wearing his trademark Rolex Submariner? A movie with Paul Newman co-staring with him!!!

The two most famous actors who wore Rolex starred together in this movie named The Towering Inferno, which set a high-water mark for early 1970s action adventure movies. In 1974, nothing was cooler than Steve McQueen and Paul Newman!!!!!




Steve McQueen is pictured below sporting his trademark Rolex Submariner.




Of course, The Towering Inferno was an action adventure movie, and in these next shots we see Paul Newman and Steve McQueen James Bonding it up!!!




When I say "James Bonding it up" if you have ever worn a Rolex Submariner and you know what I mean, you will recognize this next pose in this image that shows Steve McQueen sporting his trademark Rolex Submariner ;-)


To learn much more about the Towering Inferno, check out the update Part 3 of the Steve McQueen Rolex Story.

Live Performance of Something To Remind You

Over the years on Jake's Rolex World I have published many music videos that showcase amazing singers, and live performances. Today we take a look at Aaron Lewis performing with his band named Staind, and I have to say this is the most hauntingly brilliant vocal performance I ever recall publishing. As we see Aaron is wearing a white gold or platinum bejeweled Rolex Day-Date.

Vintage Rolex Day-Date Dealers Point Guide


Vintage Rolex Day-Date
Dealers Point Guide

If you are a daily reader of Jake's Rolex World, you know I am absolutely fascinated with vintage Rolex magazine advertisements and brochures. I am also fascinated with internal Rolex Dealer Point Guides, which served to educate salespeople at authorized Rolex dealers by giving them "talking points." Since in the Northern Hemisphere, we are in Autumn heading into winter, I thought it would be on-point to share this with you.

Introducing The All-New GoPro Hero 4 4K GoPro Arrives


...Random Video Of The Day...

Introducing The All-New GoPro Hero 4
4K GoPro Arrives

The 4K Revolution is upon us. What is 4K? Some call it UHD, which stands for Ultra-High Definition. Some refer to it as 4K2K, which basically means resolution which exceeds 4000 pixels on a display device or video. In the simplest analysis, 4K, is the next major step after 1080P video. 


GoPro cameras have revolutionize the world of vide, and they are about to do it again with the introduction of their all-new Hero4, which shoots 4K video. The video below from GoPro shows just how amazing 4K footage captured with the new GoPro looks. 


Make certain that when you watch the video, you first click the play button in the middle of the video window, then click on the full-screen button located in the bottom right-hand corner of the video window, then be sure to click on the resolution box located in the bottom right hand corner of the YouTube window, and make certain you select the highest resolution option with is 2160P (4K). After it switches to 4K, I would restart the video from the beginning by clicking on the beginning of the red video timeline strip at the bottom of the video.

So what does this have to do with Rolex? Nothing! It is just really cool, kind of like the dude who appears in the GoPro video rockin' an iced-out Rolex Daytona while he drives his Lambo...Lookin' like he is too sexy for your cat ;-)


On a serious note, the new GoPro is a seriously revolutionary video camera, and the screen grab below is from the same amazing video, and the quality is just amazing!!!



By the way, the video begins with an Ausie saying "Life is either an incredible adventure or it is nothing at all." This is a play on Helen Keller's quote that "Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing!!!"
