Rolex Coolness

Michael Jordan
The Greatest Basketball Player In History
A Brilliant Life With Rolex Keeping His Time

Michael Jordan is arguably the greatest basketball player in history, and perhaps the greatest athlete in history, as well. Michael Jordan is pictured below in a recent photograph, sporting his Rolex MasterPiece watch. Men's Rolex MasterPiece watches are rare, and they are basically Rolex Day-Dates with a special bracelet. Rolex MasterPiece watches have been particularly popular with NBA players.



The photos (below) of Michael Jordan playing golf were taken in the eighties and he is wearing his two-tone Rolex Datejust. Today Michael Jordan also wears a Platinum Rolex Day-Date which you can see in the photos below the gold shots.

Rolex Coolness: Orlando Bloom


...Rolex Coolness... 

Orlando Bloom

Lord Of The Rolexes
Vintage Rolex Explorer

Actor, Orlando Bloom is an English actor best known for his role in 2001 as the elf-prince Leoglas in Lord Of The Rings. He also starred in Black Hawk Down, Pirates of the Caribbean, Troy and Kingdom of Heaven. In the first two photos below, we see Orlando Bloom rocking a vintage Rolex Explorer II "Orange Hand" on a fatstrap.







Orlando is basically a vintage Rolex fanatic, up there with John Mayer–they actually look almost like brothers to me. In the next two photos we see Orlando Bloom rocking his vintage Rolex Explorer with a gilt dial.



Orlando Bloom is sitting on a track bike used for velodrome racing which is currently in vogue.

The DEEP
1977

Peter Benchley's 1975 Jaws movie was directed by Steven Spielberg and it was a mega-hit. Jaws prompted a slew of underwater/aquatic adventure movies and TV shows. This include movies like The DEEP, and TV shows like The Man From Atlantis.

Nick Nolte wore a Stainless Steel Rolex Submariner as he costarred with Jacqueline Bisset from the movie "The Deep" from 1977, as seen below. I remember tripping on The DEEP when I was a kid. It was a great diving movie.





The DEEP featured an all-star cast including Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset, as well as Robert Shaw, Louis Gossett Jr, and Eli Wallach. Robert Shaw (pictured below in center) also starred previously in Jaws in 1975. Robert Shaw had previously also starred in From Russia With Love (1963), A Man For All Seasons (1966), The Sting (1973), and Force 10 From Navarone in 1978. Eli Wallach is pictured below on the far right, with his back to the camera.
















Peter Benchley wrote Jaws and The DEEP, and he is featured below in the two Rolex Submariner ads from 1975.
