Warren Buffett Trusts Rolex To Keep The Time Of His Life
Warren Buffett is a very interesting man. On the one hand, he is extremely simple and un-materialistic–yet in his extremely successful career as an investor with Berkshire-Hathaway, he has managed to squirrel-away more nuts than any other American.
Warren Buffett was once asked what he thought about Rolex and he said he thought Rolex was an amazing brand and that if it was ever for sale he would buy it immediately.
"Success is getting what you want & happiness is wanting what you get." –Warren Buffett
Warren Buffett is pictured below meeting with President Obama in the White House to give him economic advise on how to turn the American economy around.

Buffett responded by saying: "Luxury watchmakers such as Geneva-based Rolex are great companies. They know my phone number, but they haven't called.''
