The Return Of Magnum PI...



The Return Of 

Magnum PI

 2018 Reboot

They say that while history doesn't repeat itself, it sure does rhyme, and that's definitely the case with the reboot of Magnum P.I. Ferrari 308 GTS, Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master and all...I know this may sound weird, but I am actually stoked to watch the reboot of Magnum PI, as this action-packed trailer looks pretty Rad...


Jay Hernandez plays the role of Thomas Magnum, which Tom Selleck so famously played back in the 1980s. In the photo below we see Tom Selleck wearing his trademark Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master in driving his Ferrari 308GT.


The new Magnum P.I. is scheduled to debut this Fall on CBS and will air on Monday evenings at 9/8c.






Even though Tom Selleck is no longer playing the role of Magnum P.I., he still wears his Rolex Reference 1675 Pepsi GMT-Master as seen on his wrist in the recent photo below. I have to admit that seeing somebody other than Tom Selleck play Magnum P.I. is kind of weird, but I would also add that the new show looks great!

Japanese Rolex Retailer Meeting in Geneva


If you are a regular reader of Jake's Rolex World you know I have been obsessed for a long time about telling the story of Hans Wilsdorf, who founded Rolex.

The photo below was taken sometime in the late 1950s and show Rolex founder, Hans Wilsdorf with the fourth generation Ryohei president of what is now known as the Hotta Corporation. The photo was taken in Hans Wilsdorf's office at Rolex headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.


If you look at the photo above of Hans Wilsdorf's office, in the upper right-hand corner we see a Rolex ad that features Lord Mountbatten. This add was published in magazines in 1957 and was part of the "Men who guide the destinies of the world wear Rolex watches."



The Hotta Corporation is one of the oldest watch retailers in Japan, and they own and operate multiple freestanding Rolex boutiques in Japan.


It is amazing, if you think about it, that there are many Rolex Authorized retailers located around the world as part of Rolex's network that developed their relationships with Hans Wilsdorf.
