Female Celebrities and Their Rolex Watches
Rolex is the largest luxury watch brand and is the most recognizable, both in name and in look, out of any watch. Founded in London in 1905, Rolex is relatively young, compared to top luxury watch brands from Switzerland, like Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe. Made from Swiss made movements, the goal of Rolex was to be the luxury Swiss watch for the whole world.
And where can you often spot one of these global status symbols? On the wrists of your favorite celebrities of course! And looking out for the male demographic I’m in, I’ve collected pics on just sexy female celebrities are their shiny new Rolex watches. The timeless Rolex Lady-Datejust is always popular with women, but so is the men’s Rolex Daytona. Following some dedicated research, the men’s Daytona watch actually turns up as often in photos of female celebs as the Lady-Datejust.
With over-sized watches still a hot trend for men, we’re seeing plenty of women picking up men’s watches for the larger size as well, with the Rolex Daytona an obvious favorite with the ladies. Like the appeal of girl wearing just a men’s dress shirt, I think a slick men’s watch like the Daytona looks sexy on a femle. Check out the pics and I’m sure you’ll agree.
And if your wife or girlfriend asks, you’re officially just browsing for her next birthday present.
Rolex’s timeless Datejust is a favourite with the ladies. The Datejust was the first wristwatch to feature the date when it was released in 1945. It’s subtle and classy styling is a true icon in the luxury watch world. Also note its unique “Cyclops eye” which magnifies the date display.
The Rolex Lady- Datejust is offered in a 26mm and 31mm case and more recently a 36mm case, due to the demand for over-sized women’s watches. Available in steel and yellow, white and everose gold, they are also offered in Rolex’s signature “Rolesor” which combines steel with a gold for a contrasting look. Among the variations are diamond studded versions and special editions featuring unique designs.
Men’s Rolex Daytona
The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona released in the early 1960s, to celebrate the start of the famous Rolex 24 at the Daytona International Speedway at Daytona Beach in Florida.
Designed for racing, it includes a patented chronograph and tachymetric scale on the bezel. The three sub-dials count the hours, minutes and seconds, with the tachymetric scale letting you calculate your speed by measuring your elapsed time over a pre-determined distance. Not that any of these lovely ladies are famous for race car driving.
The new Daytona features a monobloc cerachrom bezel, which used advanced ceramics, making it virtually invincible to scratches, corrosion and fading. Offered in only in a 44mm case size, you’ll find variations in steel, yellow gold, white gold and everose gold, with either leather or Rolex’s signature oyster strap and a variety of dial colors.
