Sam Walton Rolex Day-Date...

...Rolex Business Magnate...

Sam Walton
Kept The Time Of His Life With Rolex
Yellow Gold Rolex Day-Date

Success is a fascinating subject. Chances are, if you are reading this, you are somewhat pre-occupied with success. Rolex in many ways is considered to be 'The International Mark Of Success.'  So a great question, is 'who is the most successful businessman to ever wear a Rolex?' The answer is easy, Sam Walton, founder of Walmart and Sam's Club. Sam Walton is arguably the most successful American Businessman in history. Walmart is the biggest retailer in the world today.

So what makes Sam Walton the most successful businessman in history? When he passed away in 1992, he was the wealthiest man in America. Sam left his fortune to his wife and children, which was split between them. If you add up that collective wealth today, it is far greater than Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Carlos Slim, or Warren Buffet's collective wealth. In other words, in excess of $100 Billion!!!

Sam Walton not only wore a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date, but also wore a Rolex Submariner, which I have seen in the past.

Sam Walton is pictured below with his brother, James Lawrence "Bud" Walton who worked together to build the Walmart empire.

Sam Walton co-authored a book named Sam Walton: Made In America, which I read many years ago. It is the story of his amazing life achievements.

In the photo below we see Jim Walton, who is Sam Walton's youngest son, and according to Forbes Magazine 2016 list of Billionaires, he is currently worth $33.5 Billion. Notice Jim Walton is wearing a Rolex Explorer. Collectively, Sam Walton's family members are worth more than $100 Billion today!!!
