Thomas Kinkade Painter Of Light

...Rolex Super-Coolness...

Thomas Kinkade
Painter Of Light

Rolex GMT-Master

Thomas Kinkade was an American painter, who is arguably the most commercially successful artist of the 21st Century. How successful is his artwork today? Apparently at least 5% of American homes has a copy of one of his paintings hanging in their home. Thomas Kinkade is pictured below sporting a yellow gold Rolex GMT-Master.

Thomas Kinkade wore a yellow gold Rolex GMT-Master as seen above, and also wore a Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master as seen in the photos below.

Thomas Kinkade is arguably to the 21st Century, what Pablo Picasso was to the 20th century, as far a being prolific, popular and commercially successful, and ironically they both wore the exact same Rolex model, which was a Pepsi Rolex GMT-Master!

Classic Christmas Paintings
Making Spirits Bright

"Every painting is a journey." –Thomas Kinkade

I decided to publish this story today, as a way to get into the Christmas spirit, since Thomas Kinkade's paintings are arguably the greatest Christmas themed paintings. Thomas Kinkade's Christmas paintings are extremely ideal and heartwarming, and capture the essence of this most wonderful time of the year.

One could argue that Thomas Kinkade's paintings are similar to Norman Rockwell's in the sense that he is constantly attempting to capture this highly idyllic state of Americana. Thomas Kinkade grew up in Placerville, California, in the U.S.A., which is a city that you would pass through if you were traveling from the San Francisco Bay Area on you way to Lake Tahoe.

King Kong Rolex Christmas

King Kong For Christmas Poster

Jeff Bridges 
Rolex Submariner

The James Bond Christmas poster I just published reminded me of this 1976 King Kong Christmas Launch poster, which starred Jeff Bridges wearing his stainless steel Rolex Submariner so I thought I would post it.

Vintage Coca Cola Ads...

Vintage Coca-Cola Christmas

Rolex and Coca Cola have many attributes in common. They are both classic, timeless and iconic.

I love these vintage Coca-Cola Christmas ads from way back when. They remind me of my childhood. Yes, I actually used to put together an old electric train set from the 1950s when I was a kid ;-) Now that I think about it, Coca-Cola as a brand has much in common with Rolex in the sense they are both timeless and classic...

1938 Coca Cola Christmas Ad

1941 Coca Cola Christmas Ad

1945 Coca Cola Ad
Have A Coke

1952 Coca Cola Ad

1967 Coca Cola Holidays Ad

1970 Coca Cola Ad
It's The Real Thing. Coke.

As they say, "There's nothing like the real thing" and this vintage Coca Cola Ad from 1970 brings back many great memories!!!

Santa's Got A Cool Red Sleigh...

It looks like Santa dropped a few pounds and traded in his sleigh for a Ferrari F430 Spyder convertible. Of course he is wearing a Rolex Submariner ;-)
