Every Rolex Tells A Story

Back in the 1980s Rolex published a booklet titled, "Every Rolex Tells A Story", which was offered to Rolex customers through Authorized Rolex Dealers. The booklet consisted of fascinating letters Rolex customers had sent in over the years. These letters told amazing stories of what customers Rolex had gone through. Recently Rolex began publishing a micro-site that collects and share Rolex Stories, titled, "Every Rolex Tells A Story.

James Cameron

Every Rolex Tells A Story

Rolex's most recent, "Every Rolex Tells A Story" Testimony comes from legendary Academy Award winning Director, James Cameron. James Cameron's career achievements are amazing, as is his so are all of his Rolex connection points.

In the video above, James Cameron how he wore his Rolex Submariner when he shot his epic film, Titanic, and in the photos below, we see him wearing it on set.

James Cameron mentioned wearing his trusted Rolex Submariner when he won the Oscar for Best Picture Of The Year, and we see it on his wrist in the photos below.

James Cameron also mentioned giving his original Rolex Submariner as a gift to the Amazonian Indian Chief, which we see in the photo below.

2017 Academy Awards Rolex Green Room Preview

2017 Academy Awards

Rolex Green Room Preview ran a superb story earlier this week that offered a sneak-peak preview of the Green Room at the 89th Academy Awards, which included the two photos below that were taken by Line 8 Photography.

Of course it is alway fun to do some Rolex Spotting, and as wee see the walls in the Academy Award Green Room are covered with photos of former Oscar Winners who wear Rolex. In the photo I see Clint Eastwood, and Robert Redford. I highly recommend checking out Hodinkee's story for more great photos of the Academy Award Rolex Green Room.

Rolex Spotting

I recognize the photo located on the right side, just before the door opening as this photo of Robert Redford, where he is wearing his Rolex Submariner.

I also recognize the image on the far right side, of Clint Eastwood, from his 1993 movie he stared in titled, "In The Line Of Fire", where he wears his two tone "Root Beer" GMT-Master.

If you click on the Hodinkee link and look at more photos of the Rolex green room, you can also see the photo below of Robert De Niro from the movie titled, "The Deer Hunter", and we see him wearing his Rolex Submariner.

I also recognize the photo below, which appears in the first photo of the Hodinkee story. It is from the late 1920s and features actress Evelyn Laye, as she demonstrates the waterproof quality of her Rolex Oyster, by submerging it in a fishbowl. Also in the first photo on Hodinkee, on the far left, at the top, I recognize the photo (not shown here) from Peter Sellers Pink Panther series movie titled, "A Shot In The Dark."
