...Rolex President History...
U.S. National Archives Releases 911 Photos of
U.S. Vice President
Yellow Gold Rolex Day-Date
There has always been a great deal of mystery surrounding the events of September 11, 2001 (commonly referred to as 911), and in particular, around the events as they occurred in the White House on that frightful day. On Friday of this last week the U.S. National Archives released the first images ever seen of then U.S Vice President Dick Cheney as he watched the events of the 911 terrorist attacks unfold in the White House as well as photos of what occurred later that day and evening, and of course he was wearing his trademark Rolex Day-Date model, which is commonly referred to as The Rolex President.
Rolex has a current marketing campaign that says, "A Rolex Not Only Tells Time, It Tells History", and in the case of these photos, that is clearly the case. The photos were taken by Dick Cheney's staff photographer, and they showcase how the Bush Administration responded to the 911 terrorist attacks.
