Jeff Bridges is one of the most accomplished actors in history. He grew up in Hollywood with his famous actor father, Lloyd Bridges. Lloyd Bridges starred in groundbreaking TV series named SEA-HUNT, where he played action adventure scuba diver, Mike Nelson, and from that point forward he wore Rolex Submariner models, as does his son Jeff Bridges to this day. We see this in the recent photo below of Jeff Bridges.
Jeff Bridges has acted in so many famous roles in his lifelong acting career, and in this article we will take a look at some of them, and most importantly we will explore how through his career he has worn Rolex Submariner models only. It is a fact that Jeff Bridges has been wearing Rolex Submariner models for at least forty years!!!!
King Kong Rolex
Jeff Bridges Rolex Submariner
Jeff Bridges is pictured below wearing his stainless steel Rolex Submariner with his beautiful costar, Jessica Lange in the 1976 version of King Kong.
The original King Kong from 1933 is one of my favorite movies of all time and I only saw the 1976 version once, in 1976. I am excited to watch it again and if I can get any more screen captures, I will add them to this story. Thanks Peter!!!!
It's cool how Jeff Bridges Submariner matches his Nikon camera. Jeff Bridges is wearing a Rolex Submariner Reference 5512.
It is also funny that the only thing I remember from this movie which I saw when I was a kid, is how pretty Jessica Lange was!?! ;-)
Against All Odds Submariner from 1984
Against All Odds is really the quintessential 1980s movie; Jeff Bridges, Red Porsche 911 Cabriolet, and a Stainless Steel Submariner...Dude, you're into it!!!
The care race scene in Against All Odds is one of the most epic of all time, but I would not recommend trying this at home. Turn the volume way up!!!!!
We heard Phil Collins sing this beautiful song a few days ago that was the title song from the soundtrack. This time without the mullet. I Want My MTV!!!
A few years ago we took a look Jeff Bridges starried in the TRON sequal which was pretty, pretty good!!!
A few years ago Jeff Bridges won the Academy Award for Best Actor, and he is just as timeless as the Rolex Submariner watches he and his father Lloyd Bridges have worn their entire careers!!!
And The Winner Is....

[Generations Wearing Rolex Submariner Models]
Jeff Bridges won the Academy Award Oscar in 2010 for playing the leading role in the movie Crazy Heart!!! After an amazing career, at age 60, this was Jeff Bridges very first Oscar he won. In his acceptance speech he praised his parents by saying:
"Thank you Mom and Dad, for turning me on to such a groovy profession. Oh, my dad and my mom, they loved showbiz so much...I feel an extension of them. You know, this...is honoring them as much as it is me."
Just before the Academy Awards began, Jeff Bridges was asked if he had a good luck charm with him, and he responded that he was wearing his father's gold Rolex!!!! There is a photo of his father, Lloyd Bridges wearing his yellow gold Submariner that Jeff is referring to, later in this story.
In real life, Jeff Bridges is an accomplished guitarist and singer. In the photo below we see Jeff Bridges during filming of Crazy Heart and he is sporting his trademark two-tone Rolex Submariner.

What could be cooler than a movie starring Steve McQueen wearing his trademark Rolex Submariner? A movie with Paul Newmanco-staring with him!!!
The two most famous actors who wore Rolex starred together in this movie named The Towering Inferno, which set a high-water mark for early 1970s action adventure movies. In 1974, nothing was cooler than Steve McQueen and Paul Newman!!!!!

In November 2013, this changed when Rolex invited Jake to take an unprecdented journey into the heart of Rolex to learn and report on everything he witnessed and learned.
