Unworn 1959 Rolex Day-Date Gifted to Henry Ford II



Unworn 1959 Rolex Day-Date


Gifted to Henry Ford II

Hugh Austin is a reader of Jake's Rolex World and he wrote in to share this super cool video of an unworn Rolex Day-Date on a Jubilee bracelet that was gifted to Henry Ford II by Rolex Director, Rene-Paul Jeanneret. 


It's interesting to note that in 1959 the Rolex Day-Date came in a really elegant ruby red presentation box as seen below.



William 'Bill' Ford who is the great-grandson of Henry Ford also wears Rolex watches and in the photo below we see him wearing his LV Submariner.

Seeing this watch made me recall an image in my unpublished archives of Edsel Ford II who is another great grandson of Henry Ford, and in this photo he is wearing a two tone Rolex Datejust on a leather strap.
