A Christmas Present From James Bond...

A Christmas Present 

from James Bond


James Bond and Christmas...If we hop in the Rolex time machine and travel back to Christmas of 1974 we would see this movie poster for "The Man With The Golden Gun" which starred Roger Moore as 007.

Roger Moore wore his Rolex Submariner The 1974 James Bond movie, "The Man With The Golden Gun", as we see in the photo below with gorgeous Britt Ekland...If you want to learn much more about the history of James Bond and Rolex, check out my 13 Part Series titled: "The Complete History of James Bond Watches."

In The Man With The Golden Gun Britt Ekland wore a stainless steel Rolex Lady Datejust on an Oyster bracelet as seen below.

Roger Moore's portrayal of James Bond was interesting in the sense he played the ultimate cad. A Cad is a trashy version of a gentleman who has the appearance of a gentleman, but doesn't follow the moral code of gentlemen. A Cad might be tan year round. Bond is the perfect example of a Cad as he has no friends, kills people on a regular basis and will sleep with your wife—but foreigners and vulnerable women think he's related to the Queen :-)

The photo below shows Roger Moore checking the time on his Rolex single red Submariner [Reference 1680] on the set of The Man With The Golden Gun.

Thomas Kinkade Painter Of Light

...Rolex Super-Coolness...

Thomas Kinkade
Painter of Light

Pepsi GMT-Master & King Tut Submariner

Thomas Kinkade was an American painter, who is one of the most commercially successful artists of the 21st Century. How successful is his artwork today? Apparently, at least 5% of American homes have a copy of one of his paintings hanging in their home. Thomas Kinkade is pictured below sporting a yellow gold Rolex (King Tut: Gold and Cobalt Blue) Submariner.

Thomas Kinkade wore a yellow gold Rolex GMT-Master as seen above, and also wore a Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master as seen in the photos below.

Thomas Kinkade is to the 21st Century, what Pablo Picasso was to the 20th century, as far a being prolific, popular and commercially successful, and ironically they both wore the exact same Rolex model, which was a Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master!

Classic Christmas Paintings
Making Spirits Bright

"Every painting is a journey." –Thomas Kinkade

I decided to publish this story today, as a way to get into the Christmas spirit, since Thomas Kinkade's paintings are some of the greatest Christmas themed paintings. Thomas Kinkade's Christmas paintings are extremely ideal and heartwarming, and capture the essence of this most wonderful time of the year.

One could argue that Thomas Kinkade's paintings are similar to Norman Rockwell's in the sense that he is constantly attempting to capture this highly idyllic state of Americana. Thomas Kinkade grew up in Placerville, California, in the U.S.A., which is a city that you would pass through if you were traveling from the San Francisco Bay Area on you way to Lake Tahoe.
