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.

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.
Rolex is one of the most recognizable brands on earth, but very little has been known about its real history. If you really, really want to understand what makes Rolex tick, I very highly recommend you read the fascinating story of Rolex's amazing founder–Hans Wilsdorf.
