1966 Playboy Magazine Rolex Ad

...Rolex Time Machine...

1966 Rolex Ad

Playboy Magazine 

If we got in the Rolex Time Machine and went back to 1966-1968, and peeked in between some of the pages of Playboy magazine, like James Bond actor, George Lazenby is doing below in the movie, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, what would we find him staring at?

Well, he could definitely have been staring at this super cool Rolex 1966 magazine ad that appeared in Playboy back then. In case you were wondering the car on the right is 1966 Ford GT40 MKII. And notice it has an early Rolex Daytona in front of it.

Also notice the Submariner in the ad above and below have the rare 3, 6, 9 (Explorer) dial, as well as the slogan, "When a man has a world in his hands, you expect to find a Rolex on his wrist."

If you look closely at the image below, you will notice George Lazenby, in his role as James Bond, took off his Rolex Submariner and placed it on the table in front of him (as seen in bottom left-hand corner) of image below.

Those Were The Days

Boy the way Glenn Miller Played
Songs that made the Hit Parade
Guys like us we had it made
Those were the days.

And you knew who you were then
Girls were girls and men were men
