Happy Thanksgiving from Jake :-)


A Note from Jake

Happy Thanksgiving 

Hi Everybody!!!

It is hard to believe it is already Thanksgiving again on Jake's Rolex World!!! It has been another absolutely amazing year filled with growth and fascinating new Rolex historical content!!! I am now in my 14th year of publishing Jake's Rolex World and I have to say, I feel like I am just getting warmed-up with Rolex history. I have many, many more exciting pieces of the Rolex history puzzle to share with you in the future, as well as some major announcements coming up...

2021 has been a really bizarre year for everybody—but nonetheless, I am very grateful to have so many great readers all over the world and I hope you have found some solace and inspiration in all the amazing Rolex history I have shared with you. So many of you have written in over the years to help correct my typos, as well as to share your valuable insight and enthusiasm, for which I am eternally grateful!

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday as it gives us a chance to pause and reflect on how fortunate we all are to be able to experience this amazing miracle, known as life, on this spinning marble we all share–named Earth.

This year I have a special Thanksgiving gift for you! I am working on my review of the epic new documentary named Becoming Cousteau, and hope to have it done soon—and in the meantime you can get a detailed preview in the story below this one. I am extremely grateful for this documentary which ads many of the missing puzzle pieces in telling his amazing lifetime story. Below is a teaser image from my review and it shows Jacques-Yves Cousteau rocking his prototype Submariner back in 1953 around this time of year while he was filming his critically acclaimed Academy Award Winning aquatic documentary named The Silent World, while conducting real world testing with his Calypso team divers.

Of course, I realize Thanksgiving is a U.S. holiday, but I believe it's as timeless and universal as a sunset or a smile :-)))

Once again, Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Warmest regards,
