Star Trek Rolex Cast of Newest Star Trek Movie



Science Fiction Icons Rockin' Rolex


2001
Star Trek

Star Wars

Blade Runner


Since we are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of mankind landing on the moon I thought it would be a great opportunity to look back at some of the most famous Science Fiction writers and actors from 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Trek, Star Wars & Blade Runner who have depended on Rolex to keep the time of their lives. 










Arthur C. Clarke
Science-Fiction Writer, Explorer & Futurist
1917-2008

Yellow Gold Rolex Submariner




Arthur C. Clarke is considered to be one of the top science-fiction writers, and futurists in history. During his brilliant career he wrote more than 100 books! Clarke is probably most famous for co-writing the screenplay for the movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey, which is considered to be one of the most influential films of the 20th Century. Arthur C. Clarke is pictured below wearing his yellow gold Rolex Submariner, as he speaks with Prince Claus of The Netherlands, as he receives the Marconi International Fellowship in 1982.






Arthur C. Clarke was British and is considered to be on of the "Big 3" of Science-Fiction, along with Issac Asimov, and Robert Heinlein.




In the photo below we see Arthur C. Clarke in Sri Lanka, posing with Stephen Spielberg, and Harrison Ford, who stopped by his home to see him in 1983, while they were filming Indiana Jones and The Temple Of Doom. Notice Arthur is wearing his Rolex Submariner.










To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before!

The original Star Trek TV series was just about as iconic as it gets. In the photo below, we see William Shatner as Captain Kirk, along with Leonard Nimoy, who played the fascinating Mr. Spock. Shatner and Nimoy were so iconic together, they were almost like peanut butter and jelly.


What's so profound about a Captain of the USS Enterprise wearing a Rolex Submariner  in real-life!?! Nothing!!! William Shatner, who first played Captain Kirk also wore of Rolex Submariner in real life as seen in the photo below.




In the photo below we see William Shatner attending a Star Trek movie debut, standing next to Leonard Nimoy, who was the original Spock.






In the photo below we see Chris Pine who has played Captain Kirk in the most recent Star Trek movies wearing his Rolex Submariner.









Speaking of Leonard Nimoy who played Mr. Spock, it is hard to imagine anybody could ever do as good a job, but Zachary Quinto who is pictured below does an excellent job. Notice Zachary Quinto is wearing a Rolex Oyster Perpetual in the photo below.





Idris Elba is pictured below and he plays Krall in the new Star Trek Beyond movie.  As you can seen in the photo below, he is wearing a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date.

...Rolex Super Coolness...

Chris Pine
Star Trek's Captain Kirk
Rolex Submariner

Chris Pine is pictured below on the cover of this Month's (June 2013) Men's Health Magazine and he is wearing his stainless steel Rolex Submariner.







Carrie Fisher is pictured below with her then husband, Paul Simon, who is probably best know for his   band Simon & Garfunkel. Carrie Fisher is wearing her two-tone stainless steel and gold Rolex Ladies Datejust in the photo below.











Empire Strikes Back
1980



The first two images pictured below show Carrie Fisher with Harrison Ford at an Empire Strikes Back press conference. In this first photo we get a very clear shot of Harrison Ford's stainless steel Rolex Datejust.






On The Cover Of The Rolling Stone
July 24, 1980






An Affair To Rember

On the Rolling Stone cover above, we see Harrison Ford wearing his Rolex Datejust, and in the image below we see Harrison kissing Cary Fisher, with Mark Hamill looking on. I remember Cary Fisher saying she and Harrison Ford had an affair offscreen, which obviously explains that look on her face below :-o


The screen grab below on the right is from the official Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. I could not help but notice how similar, but opposite it looks to the picture above, of Harrison Ford hugging Carrie Fisher. In the photo above Harrison Ford is being engaged in a kiss by Carrie Fisher. In the photo below he is consoling her. Completely unrelated, but highly symbolic and fascinating nonetheless. 


In the videos below Carrie Fisher talks about her affair with Harrison Ford. In the first video, Carrie Fisher is interview by Ellen DeGeneres, who is a huge Rolex fanatic, and we see here wearing a Rolex Professional watch in the video.







The Princess Diarist

Carrie Fisher's tell-all book, The Princess Diarist was published recently on November 22, 2016, and goes into great detail about her affair with Harrison Ford. At the time Harrison Ford was 14 years older than Carrie Fisher, and he was married with two children. In her book, she goes into great detail about how distant and aloof Harrison Ford was, when they weren't making love.


Their affair lasted 3 months while they were shooting the original Star Wars: A New Hope movie in London at Elstree Studios.

As is often the case, the backstory in just as interesting and intriguing as Star Wars itself. In other words, forty years later, learning about this backstory adds a completely different dimension to Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. 




Keep in mind that NOBODY had any idea that Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford had an affair. So this recent revelation is on the one hand not surprising, but shocking at the same time. As previously mentioned, they were filming the first STAR WARS movie, that was titled STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE. Carrie Fisher referred to her affair with Harrison Ford as 'A 3-month-1-night stand.'




Return Of The Jedi

1983




The photo below shows Carrie Fisher on the set of Return Of The Jedi in 1982, hanging out wth production assistant Charles Wessler, and notice she is wearing her two-tone Rolex Datejust on her wrist.





Carrie Fisher is pictured below, taking a photo, in a photo from The New York Post that was taken on June 3, 1982. In this photos we get a very clear shot of her Rolex Jubilee Bracelet.














"You're in a desert, walking along in the sand, when all of a sudden you look down... "










The original Blade Runner movie was shot in 1981 and released in 1982. The movie itself was supposed to take place in Los Angeles, California in 2019, which is only two short years away. Ironically, the movie Blade Runner takes place in a Los Angeles that seems to have rainy weather all the time, unlike the LA of today, where it almost never rains...at least, until recently...









Ryan Gosling


In the photo above we see Ridley Scott on the set of Blade Runner 2049, with Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling. Ridley Scott directed the original Blade Runner movie.
