Adam Levine Wearing Vintage Daytona

There is no secret to anyone that Adam Levine is one of the best dressed singers there is. Although he has a very casual and relaxed style all the time, the Maroon 5 main singer always looks perfect, and this includes not only his clothes but also his accessories. One of the most popular pieces that he is wearing is his watch; the Daytona 6240 Rolex, a collectible timeless watch.

Like any other Rolex watch, the Daytona model is also extremely elegant, a classic some might think, and designed to get the attention in any circumstance. Strangely enough, when Rolex first produced this watch only a number of pieces were made, because they thought that it will not sell well. Indeed, the Daytona did not have much success back in the 60’s, but nowadays the watch is extremely difficult to find and it can only be bought for a small fortune.

The Daytona watch is made from high quality steel that will not change its appearance over the years. A clear proof of this is that even nowadays, more than 50 years after the watch was made, it still looks impeccable and every piece that was produced in that time is mostly intact. The strap of the watch is also made of stainless steel, which makes it appropriate both for casual and elegant outfits; Adam Levine is wearing his Daytona successfully during concerts or on the red carpets with expensive suits.

One of the reasons why there’s so much discussion around Adam’s watch is not because the watch is a Rolex or because it is pricey (and it is quite expensive), but because it is a classic. The original version that was produced in the 60’s evolved, and anyone who knows something about watches can look at this piece and see how the entire collection evolved. The details may go unnoticeable for most of the people, but not for a specialist. Adam does not only show his impeccable taste in choosing clothes and accessories, but he is also making a statement: he loves the classics and he is not afraid to show it.

Regarding the price of the watch, it is difficult to say how much it is actually worth. It was made in a limited edition and not many pieces are still available in good condition, so it depends on how the watch looks now and how well it was preserved.

Charlize Theron and her Rolex Sea-Dweller

When it comes to celebrities the rules of fashion rarely apply. They are the ones who create the trends and show us what the next big thing is. Once the paparazzi have photographed a star wearing a luxury watch and the pictures get into the media there’s no stopping for the huge wave of admirers who will follow his or hers footsteps. However, for celebs Rolex is one of the most preferred watches brands in the world and what everyone agrees is that the way a movie star wears a Rolex watch is totally different than how a regular person would wear it. Charlize Theron proves this when she sports her Rolex Sea Dweller at a L.A. Laker’s game in an utterly cool and chic outfit.

Charlize Theron Deepsea

Rolex is a classic brand that has been around since 1905, but somehow it has managed to always stay ahead trends with stylish and functional timepieces manufactured from the finest materials. Hollywood celebrities understand that the Rolex name and reputation have a huge impact on their image so they maximize this opportunity to its fullest. Every time they get the chance they show off their incredibly expensive and beautiful Rolex wristwatches. For those who really want to make a fashion statement, vintage or over-sized Rolex watches with a powerful design are the preferred pieces. And always, but always these models are associated with modern and unconventional attires.

3900 meters Rolex Deep Sea Black Watch

It has been clear for everyone that during the past couple of years, men’s watches on women’s wrists are an extremely popular trend. The thing is that not everyone can pull it off. It takes a lot of fashion sense and creativity to wear an oversized timepiece casually. Academy Award winning actress Charlize Theron is one of the movie stars that totally knows how to accessorize her big watches to look gorgeous with her outfits. Our favorite pick is the Rolex Sea Dweller, a model with an impressive diving legacy that is seamlessly sporty and modern looking. She wore this timepiece at a L.A Laker’s Game while sitting floor side with washed-out blue denim pants, a casual flannel boyfriend shirt and stunning black leather straps high heels. The outfit was a perfect match, exuding sophistication and style.

Usually Charlize emphasizes her femininity by wearing elegant dresses on the red carpet, but when it comes to informal events she opts for comfortable clothing that blurs the lines between feminine and masculine and complements her choice with a spectacular timepiece. Rolex is her preferred brand, from gold President to edgy Sea-Dweller. Casual is the key element here. But after all, let’s not forget that when Rolex is involved any casual look is upgraded with subtle touches of style and elegance.

Theron’s choice is even more spectacular considering the fact that not many women dare to wear a Sea Dweller. Yes, men watches on women’s wrists is a big trend now, but most ladies go for a Daytona, a DayDate or Submariner. A Sea-Dweller is a less popular model among women due to its connotations as a professional diving instrument. This is why Charlise’s is even more worthy of our appreciation. Other famous stars that have been spotted wearing a Rolex Sea-Dweller are actor Ashton Kutcher and soccer player David Beckham.

James Bond Watches

5 James Bond Actors

James Bond movies are notorious for their strong association with stylish luxury watches brands as Omega and Rolex. Basically, every 007 film ever made had as guest star a famous designer timepiece that has intrigued the audience. Of course, these collaborations have been fructuous both for the world’s favorite spy and for the watchmakers. Bond benefited from the distinction and class of the timepieces while the watch brands got to be promoted by one of the most famous movie characters known to men.




Needless to say, the value of the models that appear in 007 films is significantly higher than the one of the watches that didn’t. For instance, when “Goldfinger” turned 50 years from its debut the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra that showcased in this movie was sold at an auction for eight times more than its regular price. Surprisingly enough, the thing that intrigues fans more about the Bond saga is what the next 007 watch will be. The chosen brand is no longer a surprise since Omega has signed in 1995 a franchise with the spy series, but the model is always a reason for anticipation and excitement. Now this luxury watch company is synonymous with 007’s adventurous spirit, but things were different at the beginning. James Bond has sported many important designer names on his wrist, watches that to this day remain iconic for their spy legacy.

James Bond Dr No Submariner

Dr. No Submariner

The original James Bond watch was Rolex. In 1962 when “Dr No” was ruling the box office worldwide, everything watch enthusiasts were talking about was the Rolex Submariner spotted on Sean Connery’s wrist in some of the most thrilling scenes. What better match than the world’s first diving timepiece and the adventurous story of 007? Sean Connery starred in 7 James Bond movies and he was faithful to his Rolex Submariner. The association was so powerful that some collectors still consider the watch as the quintessential James Bond timepiece. The reason why Rolex appeared in a total of 9 Bond films is that the author Ian Fleming was convinced that this was the most representative brand for his spy character. As a matter of fact, he wore his favorite Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer on the set of the first three 007 movies.

Between 1962 and 1989, Sean Connery, Peter Sellers, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig were the famous actors that played the legendary James Bond. And almost every single one of them wore a Rolex on his wrist. Of course, there were a couple of exceptions like a few high-tech models and some Tag Heuer and Breitling pieces, but in everyone’s mind the iconic 007 watch is the Rolex Submariner. One other notable Rolex model that appeared in the Bond saga is the Rolex GMT Master sported by Pussy Galore in “Goldfinger”. Unlike Omega, Rolex has never tried to promote its products by using the Bond name. The brand didn’t pay for product placement or offered free watches to the actors.

The quartz era left a strong mark on James Bond movies as well. The attention switched from luxury automatic models to fashionable technical novelties like the glowing red Pulsar watch, digital Seikos and the Seiko Liquid Crystal TV watch that was spotted in “Octopussy”.

Octopussy Seiko

Octopussy Seiko T001-5019

One of the most notable quartz models worn in his early adventures is the Seiko 0674, an LCD Quartz digital watch that at that time was pretty innovative. Its modern design was a match for Bond’s style. This timepiece was worn by Roger Moore in the 1977 movie: “The spy who loved me”. The novelty of the model was that its LCD screen was able to display messages sent to 007 from the MI6 Headquarters. Back then this was considered a futuristic element, something that a spy like James Bond would wear. And this is exactly what he does. He proudly wears the watch on his wrist for the entire movie, from the first scene to the very last one.

Like all Seiko watches, the 0674 model is considerably rare. Also, Seiko didn’t make any variations of this timepiece. The brand produced just this version as a tribute to the favorable collaboration with 007. Its design is pretty unique. The rectangular shaped dial displays the days of the week, the hour, the AM/PM feature and seconds. Below the dial there are two small push buttons that are used to set the time, calendar, the light intensity and mode.

In 1981, the twelfth James Bond movie called “For your eyes only” debuted. The Seiko 0674 appeared in this movie again. This time, it was worn by a crew member of the St George spy ship. The character who sported this digital watch was the man who takes over the control of the A.T.A.C. before the ship is hit by the mine. In the movie, he fails to pull the self-destruct handle, but his watch choice is a success that will echo for decades. The Seiko 0674 appears on the screen for a couple of moment when its wearer handcuffs himself to the machine.

Seiko M354 Memory Bank Calendar that was worn in the 1979 “Moonraker” movie. In the film, this liquid crystal display model is fitted with explosives and a remote detonator; thus helping 007 to escape from the “Moonraker” launch platform. Many Bond fans and watches enthusiasts are very attached to this timepiece that nowadays is considered a collectible and is auctioned at incredibly high prices.

Like all the Seiko models that appear in Bond movies, the M354 is very rare. It is not the type of watch you can buy online or in stores. Collectors showcase it at special events and from time to time one of these remarkable devices is being sold at a private auction.

Roger Moore is the 007 actor that wore this vintage silver case and steel bracelet Seiko model in “Moonraker”. The complete reference number of the watch is M354-5019, but Seiko has also produced a M354-5010 that looks just the same, but has a few technical differences. Usually, people confuse these two, but for a true fan the one and only “Moonraker” watch is the M354-5019.

Seiko has developed and created M354 as a highly innovative watch able to impress its wearer with its functionality. This digital masterpiece displays on its rectangular LCD dial hours, minutes, seconds, months, day and date. There is the option of displaying the hours in a 12 or 24 hour format. The watch is also called Memory Bank Calendar because its complex mechanism is able to display the full calendar for any given month, between January 1930 and December 2009. Furthermore, within a 12 months period, this water resistant timepiece can be programmed to memorize as many important dates as its wearer desires.

The Seiko M354 watch was first produced in 1978 and when it made its big debut, the brand printed out an advertisement that presented the model as “the first LC digital quartz memory bank calendar”. Back then, the watch was priced between $225 and $275.

“License to kill” is one of the most successful 007 movies, a classic film signed by Eon Productions which had its big premiere in 1989. This time, Timothy Dalton was the one that played James Bond and his appearance remains unforgettable for watches enthusiasts due to the fact that he was the last 007 actor to wear a Rolex Submariner, a watch that is seen as the quintessential Bond timepiece.

Until now, Rolex Submariner is the watch model that has starred in the most James Bond movies. Its story with the famous MI6 spy started in 1962 when Sean Connery wore it in “Dr No” and it ended with “License to kill”. The timepiece was perfect for reflecting the style and personality of the adventurous 007, the perfect gentleman agent whom was always wearing a sleek suit and an expensive watch.

The movie “License to kill” was the second time actor Timothy Dalton played James Bond and what better way to mark this occasion than wearing a Rolex 16610, a timeless design that will forever be known as the last Rolex 007 watch? Due to this connection, now the model is a collectible item and the brand has even produced an updated version of the watch to perpetuate its impressive legacy as a watch that breaks all barriers, even the ones of time.

To become the official James Bond watch, Omega had to win a bid in 1995. Because many fans were very reluctant about this collaboration, Omega had to emphasize its heritage with the British military and Royal Navy Divers. The goal of the brand was to establish its image as the one of a daring watch with a long and adventurous history.

GoldenEye Omega Seamaster

GoldenEye Omega Seamaster

The first Bond actor that wore an Omega Seamaster Professional 300 m on his wrist was Pierce Brosnan in “GoldenEye”. This model was equipped with a remote control that was able to detonate devices and a laser beam. Daniel Craig was the first 007 actor that changed this high tech approach for Bond watches by being firm about promoting a more sophisticated and fit Bond that needs just a stylish watch and suit to be glamorous on his criminal fighting adventures. He wears two Omega watches in “Casino Royale”. One is the 45.5 mm Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Co-Axial chronometer and the other one is a blue Omega Seamaster 300 m chronometer.

Tomorrow Never Dies Omega

Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is not Enough & Die Another Day Omega

Now, Omega and James Bond reached their 17th year of partnership and the Seamaster Planet Ocean was the staple watch for their association. But with the debut of “Skyfall” things changed. The 007 image was refreshed with a Seamaster Aqua Terra Mid Size Chronometer. The elegant “teak” concept dial was preferred by Daniel Craig who is convinced that his spy character is way too sophisticated for the sporty Planet Ocean. So the producers decided to showcase two Omegas in the film. One was a special edition Planet Ocean available in a 5,007 series and the other one was Craig’s Aqua Terra.

Since the first James Bond movie, watches have played an important role in building a unique and charismatic style for 007. Rolex, Seiko, Breitling, Tag Heuer and Omega are just a few of the very famous timepieces that starred in the 24 James Bond sagas that conquered an entire world.

Rolex Daytona 2016

The annual Baselworld show will always have watch aficionados discussing what manufacturers may have in store for them, and Rolex are undeniably on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Recent years have seen growing speculation about a new Rolex Daytona chronograph model finally getting announced, and now that wait is finally over.

While not initially popular upon its release, the Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona, or simply Daytona, has now reached legendary status among watch enthusiasts and collectors. First released in 1963 as a watch perfect for racing, it became an iconic timepiece used amongst motorsport professionals thanks to its incredible performance and chronograph function.

Re-launches saw it become and updated piece for the modern collector, with the 40mm wristwatch now featuring an automatic movement and sapphire glass back. These models continued to remain elusive however, as the popularity of the Daytona continued over the years.

It has been almost 16 years since the most recent steel Daytona was released, and many have been clamouring for an upgraded model to feature a new ceramic bezel since it was first featured on the Platinum Daytona anniversary edition in 2013.

Now the new Daytona comes with just that, as well as a new model number (116500LN) and is available with either a black or white dial. The calibre remains the same 4130 of the previous iteration, as does the oyster casing and bracelet. While this may not appear like much, fans of Rolex know just how big this announcement is, and these new models will certainly be hard to come by – expect some long waiting lists in any case!

2016 Daytona two Models

Back to main feature, which is unquestionably the new ceramic cerachrom bezel with a tachymetric scale. This type of bezel isn’t anything new to several watch models, but will be a first for the steel Daytona range and will prove to be massively popular.

For one it is incredibly durable, with the ceramic used being virtually scratch-proof and resistant to UV damage. The digits for the bezel are embedded with a platinum coating to help ensure their longevity too, ensuring that the aesthetics of this new Daytona will remain spotless and damage-free for life.

The black dial models will feature the same silver sub dials around the chronograph dials as previous models, whereas the white dial features black dials instead. Both help to create that beautiful dial-design that has become a hallmark for the Daytona. Other than that, the dials remain almost unchanged from their predecessors, which certainly isn’t an issue given how popular the Daytona has been.

As the oyster case remains, there isn’t much to note about the case. It features the same robustness as the previous models, with the case being constructed from 904L stainless steel. The bracelet is unchanged too, consisting of the oyster design from previous steel Daytona’s, including satined external links and polished central links. An Oysterlock clasp is present for fastening, which also has an easylink extender for adjustments.

As the bezel holds the crystal in place, the model is again water resistant to a depth of 100 metres.

The Daytona still has the 4139 calibre of the previous models. This self-winding movement has been made entirely in-house by Rolex and provides power reserves for up to 72 hours. What has changed in regards to this is how Rolex tests this calibre.

Since 2015 Rolex unveiled a new Superlative Chronometer certification, which happened to be more of an upgrade of the COSC certification rather than just replacing it. These tests are done entirely in-house by Rolex and are done using strict criteria (which happen to be stricter than most others too) to help ensure it performs to the highest possible standards.

This results in the new Daytona being in the order of -2/+2 seconds per day, which is incredible for a chronometer and just goes to show the high level of craftsmanship that has gone into the latest Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona.

These are guaranteed to sell fast, and with a price of £8,250 (€11,300), there’s no telling just how long they will be available for – although no release date has been announce yet!

Paris Hilton Rolex

A lot can be said about celebrities nowadays, however, the news that keeps up with famous people all around the world, often shows a weakness for noticing the smaller things involved in celebrities’ daily lives. Paris Hilton, for example, is a very stylish and current celebrity with the knowledge of constant fashion and clothing appeal. As we all know, fashion is something to be noticed, and for Paris Hilton, one of the best ways to show off that fashion is with watches that have been in the main eye for quite some time.

Paris-Hilton

Paris Hilton has been known for her many talents. She is versed in a variety of occupations, such as: modeling, singing, acting, being a DJ, as well as a business woman and author. With the world at her fingertips, Paris has provided the world with a great service in all areas of her life. She has been singing with some of Hollywood’s greatest artists and is known for collaborating her own set of music as well. Paris has also been in many movies and displayed perfect credibility. While she is known for being a very famous daughter of the popular Hilton family, she has been seen in many forms of business because of her family name. Her most known attributes are displayed through various lines of perfume that she has distributed throughout the years as well as a very dominate fashion line. Also, Hilton has been known to display many of other fashion designer works as well as modeling them for the world to see. One of the great things about fame is the ability to bring to light the items that are often overlooked or aren’t getting enough attention. In today’s time, watches are often an item that’s overlooked by many. Our cellphones and other gadgets now allow us to carry around a clock at all times, often leaving the watch as a last minute thought. However, watches are still an option that remains in style and a stylish way to keep up with your time.

Of course, we have Paris Hilton with her many famous styles that show it is still possible to show off the intrigued option of the watch. There are also a couple examples that have been known to show up on Paris’s wrist as one of her styling choices.

Diamond GMT Master II 116759

One of the best options many people are going with is the Diamond Rolex GMT-Master II watch. This 18 karat white gold case set watch with diamonds is priced at a very high appeal. With its value running in at well over $400,000, it’s no wonder that this watch is one of the more appealing choices. With silver tone hands and dot hour markers, the style is undeniable. It’s set with scratch resistant crystal and also automatic movement. This is also a watch that Paris Hilton has been known to wear on many public outings.

Paris-Hilton-Daytona

Another great option that sits available for anyone interested in deep style, is the Rolex Everose Gold Daytona. While the watch is labeled as a men’s watch, this fabulous choice has been known to be unisex by many. Therefore, the watch is worn by both men and women respectfully. The watch offers automatic movement with beautiful red gold and is placed at well over $30,000 in pricing. Although this is watch is known to be worn by Paris Hilton herself and is considered highly popular, especially among men and women. The dials are gold plated with very defined hour markers. With 18 karat rose gold, this watch is an option that would not disappoint.

Rolex Everrose Gold Daytona Model 116505

Kyle Richards Gold Daytona

Kyle Richards is a well known television personality and actress; her career goes way back in 1975 when she appeared in a small television series. However, she is very famous for playing in ER and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Recently, she has been seen wearing one of the most desired timepieces in the world, a Rolex Daytona in Rose Gold, a choice that has attracted many appreciations from fashion critics and fellow celebrities.

Kyle Richards with gold Rolex Daytona on red carpet

The Cosmograph Daytona is unquestionably one of the most recognizable and popular timepieces in history. Initially, the watch was designed as a professional time keeping device for racing drivers, but in time it evolved into one of the most fashionable and luxurious pieces around. This iconic model comes in numerous versions of precious materials such as platinum, yellow gold and rose gold, but Richards couldn’t resist to the beauty and distinction of the famous 18 k Everose gold, a color option that looks irresistible on the classic Daytona dial with its three elegant sub-dials and functional tachymetric scale.

rose gold with black dial Rolex

Kyle decided to match her rose gold Rolex Daytona with a short black dress complemented by a wide gold studs belt, a similar gold studs bracelet and lacquered black pumps. Her hairdo was really simple and clean, creatively paired-up with over-sized gold earrings.

The Everose gold version Daytona is so special because this unique 18 k pink gold alloy has been created and patented exclusively by Rolex in its own foundry. The material was introduced in 2005 and is used for all Rolex Oyster models that come in pink gold.

The main reason why the Rolex Daytona Everose gold worn by Kyle Richards is such a stylish and interesting fashion choice is the fact that it comes with a sleek black dial. The surface is clean and plain, enhancing the beauty of the small 3 dials which are pink gold and black with a raised circular pattern which reflects the light exquisitely. The hour markers are also Everose gold and coated with Chromalight for increased night legibility. Around the outside of this uber sophisticated dial there is a prominent 18 k pink gold tachymetric scale that has black embossed numbers. Everything about this model impresses in the most exquisite possible way.

Even though the Rolex Daytona is a considerably large watch, most often recommended for large manly wrists, Richards manages to wear it effortlessly. The large Cosmograph dial looks nice and natural on her wrist due to her inspired choice of accessories and clothing. The black and pink rose gold dial of the Daytona goes very nicely with Kyle’s short black dress that has a rugged studs gold belt around her waist. This and the flowing ample long sleeve manage to integrate the large masculine timepiece seamlessly into the actress’s cool stylish look.

David and Victoria Beckham’s Rolex Watches

There is no celebrity couple more fashionable and attractive than Victoria & David Beckham. To sum up their careers- David Beckham played Football for Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, LA Galaxy and PSG. He is currently retired, but makes a lot of money from advertising luxury products. Victoria Beckham was a member of the famous pop band- Spice Girls- and now is a very popular fashion designer. The couple is very stylish and versatile when it comes to their image, but regarding their public appearance one thing always remains the same- they stay true to their passion for Rolex watches.

Victoria & David Beckham have been seen wearing numerous different models created by Rolex, one more sophisticated than the other. David has been for the past decades a real male style icon. He is famous for its stylish outfits, hairstyles and luxury watches. He is a true chameleon when it comes to timepieces, switching from vintage to modern Rolex watches in an instance. The Deepsea Sea Dweller was his first love. With a water resistance of 3900 meters, this model got David’s full attention. He owns two versions of the Deepsea, the first one is the classic one and the second one is a customized version with a Black PVD coating. Also, the arrow shaped tip from the bezel is red color. This special version looks totally different than any other Deepsea. It creates a more bold and sportive look for its 43 mm case.

david_and_victoria_beckham_rolex_watches

As I was saying earlier, he also likes vintage Rolex watches. He was seen numerous times wearing a Datejust with a 36 mm gold case, pale gold dial, baton hour markers and a leather strap. Another one of his favorite vintage designs is a Rolex GMT Master with nipple dial, brown bezel and a fatstrap.

Just like her husband, Victoria Beckham prefers both modern and vintage Rolex watches. One of her usual choices is a gold Rolex Daytona with an in-house mechanical self-winding 4130 Calibre. This gold version looks particularly good on a delicate ladies wrist. Next, Victoria has been seen wearing a vintage Day-Date with a dark color dial and a Day-Date with a pastel green Stella dial. Connoisseurs know that a Stella dial is the nickname used for Rolex’s enamel dials. Even though the green pastel Stella dial with gold case is a men’s watch, the color combination is ravishing and it looks spectacular on the wrist of an elegant lady.

Rose Gold Daytona

The moment when photographers are completely overwhelmed with joy is when David and Victoria Beckham show up in public, each one wearing his Rolex watch. No matter if it is a special event or simply a basketball match, the couple loves to show off their fabulous and expensive luxury Rolex timepieces.

Andy Roddick’s Gold Rolex Daytona

Had cuteness of the player been important in tennis, Andy Roddick would have definitely won the Wimbledon at least once. Had choice of watch been relevant, Andy Roddick would have won at least two consecutive Wimbledon tournaments. Sporting a Rolex Daytona on his hand with the Runners’ shield of Wimbledon, it is difficult to take your eyes off the gold and black Rolex Daytona watch.

Gold Daytona Andy

It is the only watch in the Rolex stable that has a chronograph. This watches probably the only one in the world which does not look ostentatious despite the excessive use of gold. Apart from the face of the watch, which is black, each and every part of the watch is dipped in gold.

The watch has the hours, minutes and seconds hand along with three sub dials on the face embossed in two concentric golden circles. The combination of gold on black ensures proper contrast and the tennis player will never find it difficult to know what the time is.

 rolex-cosmograph-daytona-116528

The watch does not have a date view but that seems irrelevant considering the classy finish of the watch. The metal strap is strong enough to withstand rough and tough usage as is evident from the fact that Andy Roddick chose to wear this watch in the final; where he was going bang bang at full speed at the tennis ball.

The best thing about the watch is that it is suitable for formal as well as casual occasions. Despite the fact that Andy Roddick is dressed in a T shirt and shorts, the watch seems particularly apt for the occasion.

On the right hand side of the face of the watch is the trademark crown of the watch with the Rolex crown embossed on it. It is flanked by two push buttons which operate the chronograph.

Dick Cheney Rolex Day-Date

One of the most important and famous models in Rolex’s history is the Rolex Day-Date. Its fame is an inevitable consequence of its popularity among U.S Presidents and international statesmen; hence its nickname – Rolex President. The first U.S. ruler that wore this model was President Dwight Eisenhower, but many others showed the same appreciation for this distinctive Rolex design.




Besides the iconic nickname, the Rolex Day-Date also has a very rich tradition. Rolex started its celebrity-based advertising campaign early by giving its 1000th Day-Date piece to Winston Churchill and the 1500th one to Dwight Eisenhower. It’s a well-known fact that there is no other watch on this planet as influential and affluent as the Rolex President.

Yellow Gold Day Date 118238

One of the most recent personalities that have developed a fine taste for Rolex Day-Date watches is Dick Cheney. Even though there have been countless U.S. Presidents who have worn Rolex Day-Date watches over the history, Dick Cheney appears to be the first U.S Vice President to sport this design during his two terms in the office. And his choice wasn’t a very discrete one. The statesman decided to go big with a considerably opulent Yellow Gold case Rolex Day-Date with a Champagne gold dial. Unfortunately, this style choice wasn’t a very lucky one for Dick Cheney as his political career didn’t go further than the role of Vice President.

 But honestly, who could blame U.S Vice President Dick Cheney for preferring a Rolex Day-Date over any other timepiece on the planet? After all, the Rolex Day-Date was the first watch to offer both the day and date function. And let’s not forget the fact that it has a spectacular design perfected by the finest metals around. Rolex offers the President line in three versions- platinum, yellow gold and white gold, but the yellow gold one is by far the most luxurious one. The inside of the Day-Date impresses as much as the outside. The watch has an outstanding 31 jewels self-winding mechanical movement and the Rolex Quickset feature. It is a highly accurate time keeping device. And if Dick Cheney is passionate about water sports then he is certainly very thrilled about the watch’s 100 meters water resistance.

Many people are simply fascinated by the looks, prestige and reputation of the Rolex Day-Date, but this is definitely not a watch for the masses. It is a very expensive and rare timepiece designed to accompany Presidents and statesmen on their way to success. It is a watch that had endured the most critical changes in history with grace and sophistication. U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney is one of the lucky personalities who had the chance of wearing this masterpiece, a perennial watch that has no limits when it comes to style and luxury.
