    How Good Is The Rolex Milgauss?

    The Rolex Milgauss is one of the neatest—some might say most unusual or even odd—watches ever to see the light of day. Introduced in 1956 at the dawn of the Rolex “tool watch” era, one could argue the Milgauss was in fact the epitome of purpose-built tool watches.

    The “Robert Redford” Submariner

    Let me just say up front that I am lobbying for this. I mean, we have the “Paul Newman” Daytona, and the “Steve McQueen” Explorer II, why not a “Redford” Submariner?

    Rolex in the Movies: Summer School, 1987

    This installment of Rolex in the movies is taking a different tack and recalling a forgotten gem of lighthearted comedy from the late 1980s. Catching the film on TV this week and watching it for the first time in a l-o-n-g time, I was struck by how well the film has held up.

    Rolex in the Movies—The Mystique of Steve McQueen Lives On

    Steve McQueen—The King of Cool. There’s no other movie star in Hollywood history quite like him. He was the box office champ, the biggest star in the world, for over a decade. He dated the most beautiful leading ladies of his day and had a motorcycle collection of over 130 bikes. Indeed, he was an accomplished race car and motorcycle driver and did many of his own stunts.

    Rolex in the Movies #6: The National Treasure Movies

    In 2004 a new action adventure film was released to mostly mediocre critical reviews. National Treasure with Nicolas Cage may not have wowed too many critics, but somebody must have forgotten to tell the ticket-buying public.

    Boy, times have sure changed.

    Rolex in the Movie #4

    This is a bit of a departure, but since I have spent some time in previous installments of “Rolex in the Movies” talking about how a watch can enhance character development in a film, I thought we’d tackle that Tarantino Magnum Opus Sequel, Kill Bill 2.

    Clint Eastwood’s ‘Root Beer’ GMT-Master

    It’s not hard to find a Rolex in a movie. They’ve been icons of both style and durability for decades. Everyone knows the first celluloid James Bond, played by actor Sean Connery, sported a Rolex Submariner in the early Bond flicks.

    Rolex in the Movies #2, Steve McQueen in The Hunter, 1972

    In this installment of Rolex watches in the movies, I’ll be looking at two of the “coolest of the cool” icons in two different industries—Steve McQueen and the Rolex Submariner.

    Rolex in the Movies # 1: Charles Bronson in The Mechanic, 1972

    The use of Rolex watches in the movies is a favorite topic of perennial interest on watch collector forums. Many watch collectors can trace their fascination for a certain brand of watch to a particular movie or a brand’s sponsorship by a famous celebrity.
