Paul Newman Daytona
Accepting An Academy Award On The Set Of The Color Of Money
I hope you are all having a great holiday season, and I wish you all a very happy new year!!! 2013 is going to be a great year on Jake's Rolex World and I will be bringing you some amazing new Rolex history!!!
I am starting a little early with these next two images which have never been published on the web. They were both taken in early 1986 on the set of the Academy Award Winning "The Color Of Money."
This first image was taken on March 24, 1986 and shows Paul Newman accepting an Honorary Oscar via Satellite on the set of The Color Of Money. Notice Paul Newman is wearing one of his trademark Paul Newman Rolex Daytona watches on a FatStrap. Ironically, Paul Newman would go on to win another Academy Award for Best Actor later that year, for his role in The Color Of Money!!!
This next image taken on the set of The Color Of Money, show Paul Newman with his co-star, Tom Cruise. Notice Paul Newman is sporting his same black dial Rolex Daytona on a FatStrap. What makes these two images interesting is that Paul Newman wore a stainless steel Rolex Datejust in the movie, but you see that when he was not acting he was wearing his trademark Paul Newman Daytona. In the future, I will add these image to The Complete History Of The Paul Newman Daytona Story on Jake's Rolex World.
