Vouge Rolex Magazine Ad: 1974 Princess Diana Vibe


Vouge Rolex Magazine Ad


1974 Princess Diana Vibe

You may have noticed RolexMagazine.com disappeared from the web on Saturday night, which was due to a DNS issue with my web host. Obviously we got everything fixed, and I wanted to thank everybody who wrote in with concern :-)

To celebrate being back online I thought I would share this REALLY special previously undocumented Rolex Magazine Ad that appeared in Vouge Magazine in 1974. I LOVE THIS AD, which features a cool Pucci outfit, and a model who kind of looks like Princess Diana—doesn't she!?!!

I recently learned that J. Walter Thompson was responsible for somewhere around 90% of Rolex magazine ads during the 1970s and 1980s, so if you sense a British sensibility vibe in Rolex ads from that era this would explain it.
