Henry Kissinger

Belongs To The Ages


Yellow Gold Rolex Day-Date

Henry Kissinger passed away today at the age of 100 years old, which is amazing if you think about it. Henry certainly lived a fascinating life, and as we see he wore a Rolex tool watch, specifically a Rolex political tool watch for diplomats, in the form of a super-iconic yellow gold Rolex Day-Date.

Henry Kissinger died at age 100 and was born Heinz Alfred Kissinger in 1923 in what is now considered to be Germany. Kissinger is a Jewish refugee who fled Nazi Germany in 1938 with his family who came to the United States. Kissinger graduated summa cum laude from Harvard college in 1950 with a BA degree and a PhD in 1954, and went on to become a politician, diplomat and geopolitical consultant. In 1973, Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his negotiations for the ceasefire in Vietnam.

Kissinger served as Secretary of State and was a National Security Adviser to Presidents Nixon and Ford.

SailGP – Intense competition guaranteed


Intense Competition GUARANTEED

SailGP combines technological innovation with supreme athleticism in the pursuit of excellence. Competing in this world-leading racing league requires precision, dedication and the highest level of performance from crews and their identical, lightning-fast F50 catamarans. Season 4 of the championship began in June 2023 with the Rolex United States Grand Prix – marking the first time the brand has been Title Sponsor of a SailGP event – and features a record 12 grand prix spread across North America, Europe, the Arabian Peninsula and Oceania. 

Each location is chosen for its international stature and ability to host competitive sailing close to shore for maximum spectator engagement. As well as transforming yacht racing, the series inspires positive change through its initiatives to encourage sustainability and develop career pathways for women and young sailors. Rolex has supported SailGP since its debut season in 2019 as part of its long-standing partnership with yachting dating back more than 60 years.

Rolex has always associated with activities driven by passion, excellence, precision and team spirit. The Swiss watchmaker naturally gravitated towards the elite world of yachting six decades ago and the brand’s enduring partnership now encompasses the most prestigious clubs, races and regattas, as well as towering figures in the sport, including ground-breaking round-the-world yachtsman Sir Francis Chichester and the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, Sir Ben Ainslie. Today, Rolex is Title Sponsor of 15 major international events – from leading offshore races such as the annual Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race and the biennial Rolex Fastnet Race, to grand prix competition at the Rolex TP52 World Championship and spectacular gatherings at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup and the Rolex Swan Cup. It also supports the exciting SailGP global championship in which national teams race identical supercharged F50 catamarans on some of the world’s most famous harbours. Rolex’s partnerships with the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, Royal Ocean Racing Club, Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, Yacht Club Italiano, New York Yacht Club and Royal Yacht Squadron, among others, are the foundation of its enduring relationship with this dynamic sport.

Yellow Gold Rolex Daytona

40MM Reference 6241

Want to see some of the most beautiful photos of vintage Rolex Daytona models on planet earth? You can see many of them in my story from 2014 named, The Complete History Of The Rolex Daytona Cosmograph.

The photo below is from the story and showcases an ultra-rare yellow gold Paul Newman exotic dial Rolex Daytona that was made for and retailed by Hermès. The photo is from Pucci Papaleo's masterpiece book named The Ultimate Daytona. In my opinion this is the very, VERY, VERY best looking yellow gold Rolex Daytona EVER Made...

It's interesting to note that when most people think of a "Paul Newman Exotic Dial Daytona", they don't envision anything like this Hermès Rolex Daytona. Instead, they think of a stainless steel variant, but, man this Rolex is beyond beautiful...
