Lume Shot Of The Year: Rolex Explorer II Orange Hand


...Lume Shot Of The Year...

Rolex Explorer II Orange Hand

Gary posted this photo on RolexForums.com and it blew my mind, so I asked him to send in a higher-resolution version of the shot and he was kind enough to do so. What a beautiful watch and what a magnificent Lume Shot. I am so impressed, I am awarding Gary's stunning photo with Lume Shot Of The Year!!!!


I couldn't make up my mind which way I like this image cropped, so I am sharing both with you ;-)

...Rolex Coolness...

Mundy Peale
1953 U.S. Air Force Thunderjets

This ad for Republic Aviation is fascinating in that is discusses how Republic provided the U.S. Air Force with 4500 Thunderjets

Note: In 1953, when this Rolex Ad came out, President Eisenhower had just started his first of two terms as the President of the United States, and he was wearing the exact Rolex Datejust featured in this ad.

Harrison Ford Returns As Hans Solo The Force Awakens


...Rolex Ultra-Super-Coolness...

Harrison Ford
Returns to STAR WARS as Hans Solo 
The Force Awakens

Who is the coolest guy to ever wear a Rolex? Steve McQueen? Paul Newman? Sir Sean Connery? One could argue it would be Harrison Ford! In the photo below we see Harrison Ford reprise his role as Hans Solo in the upcoming J.J. Abrams Star Wars movie, which is scheduled to launch this Christmas!!!

"Chewy, we're home!"



Star Wars
The Force Awakens
Trailer Teaser ll

Just last week I did a story on how all six star wars movies are being made available for digital download in HD!!! Recently, J.J. Abrams launched the second official teaser trailer which features Harrison Ford!!! Check it out!!!


In this new trailer, we see Harrison Ford return as Hans Solo which is really cool. In the photo below, we see Harrison Ford wearing his Rolex Datejust, as he kissed Cary Fisher, with Mark Hamill looking on. If I recall correctly, I think I remember Cary Fisher saying she and Harrison Ford had an affair offscreen, which may explain that look on her face below :-o



Below are some never before seen photos of young Harrison Ford wearing his Rolex Datejust from my unpublished Rolex archive. Harrison Ford is as timeless and classic as his Rolex Datejust.
