Fleetwood Mac Keeping Time With Rolex

Note: I am currently working on this article and when it is done I will remove this notice.

Fleetwood Mac
Keeping Time With Rolex

Fleetwood Mac is one of the most successful and iconic bands in history. Fleetwood Mac's blockbuster album, which was released in February of 1977 is considered to be one of the best selling albums of all time, only being outsold by Michael Jackson's Thriller and The Eagles Greatest Hits (1971-1975).

The video below, shot in 1977 features Fleetwood Mac singing their hit song "Dreams."

"Thunder Only Happens When It's Raining. Players only love you when their playing."

At least three of Fleetwood Mac's members wear Rolex watches as seen below. Let's begin by looking at Mick Fleetwood, founding drummer of Fleetwood Mac in a recent photos wearing his yellow gold Rolex Submariner. By the way, Mick Fleetwood is pictured on the cover of the Fleetwood Mac album Rumors, which is pictured at the beginning of this story.

John McVie is the base player in Fleetwood Mac and he is pictured below in 1967, just before joining Fleetwood Mac and he is wearing his Rolex GMT-Master. This photo was taken before he joined Fleetwood Mac, and at the time he was in a band named the Bluesbreakers.

John McVie is pictured below, again in 1967 holding his Rolex GMT-Master in his hand.

John McVie was one of the founding members of Fleetwood Mac and he is pictured below on the far left, standing next to Mic Fleetwood. Notice John is still wearing his Rolex GMT-Master.

John McVie is pictured below in the late 1970s with Fleetwood Mac singer, Stevie Nicks. Notice John McVie is wearing a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date.

I the Fleetwood Mac group portrait below we see John McVie on the far left wearing his yellow gold Rolex Day-Date, with his wife Christie McVie standing behind him. We also see Mick Fleetwood in the center with Lindsey Buckingham standing behind Stevie Nicks.

John McVie is pictured below in 1994 and notice he is wearing his Rolex GMT-Master, but this time it is on a Jubilee bracelet.

Christie McVie is one of the female singers in Fleetwood Mac and she was married to Fleetwood Mac base player, John McVie, who is pictured above. In the photo below you can see Christie McVie wearing her yellow gold Rolex Lady-Date on a Jubilee bracelet.

In the Fleetwood Mac band portrait below we see from left to right, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Mic Fleetwood, and Christie McVie wearing her yellow gold Lady Date on a Jubilee bracelet.

The two videos below feature Christie McVie singing lead vocals on two of Fleetwood Macs most iconic songs, the first being  "You Make Loving Fun" and the second being "Over My Head."

Paris Hilton Rockin' A Rose Gold Rolex Daytona

...Rolex Hotness...

Paris Hilton
Keeping Her Time With Rolex

Paris Hilton is the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, who was the Founder Of Hilton Hotels. Paris Hilton has been a model and serious fashion diva and icon for many years, so it is no surprise she wears Rolex watches.

Rockin' An EverRose Gold Rolex Daytona
40MM Reference 116505

Ladies Yellow Gold Rolex Datejust
Special Edition Diamond Masterpiece

One of the things I have always loved about Paris Hilton–beside the fact that she is stunningly gorgeous with a magnificent smile–is that she always looks like she is having a great time!!!

Paris Hilton's younger sister Nicky Hilton is also a big Rolex fan, as I have showcased many time on Jake's Rolex World in the past. Paris Hilton is pictured below with Nicky Hilton who is wearing a Rolex.

Paris Hilton is an absolute car fanatic. From what I have observed, she has probably owned and driven more Supercars than any other women is history. In the photo below we see her leaving Barney's in Los Angeles, where she lives in her Ferrari California Sypder.

In this next photo we see Paris Hilton getting out of her Mercedes-Benz SLR Coupe.

In these next two photos, we see Paris Hilton getting out of her Pink Bentley Continental GT.

Sir Laurence Olivier Rolex Datejust + Patek Philippe Calatrava

...Rolex Super-Coolness...

Academy Award Winner For Best Actor

Sir Laurence Olivier

Stainless and Gold Rolex Datejust 

I figured since we were just looking at another very famous Englishman last week (Michael Caine) it makes sense to take a look at another extremely famous Englishman; Sir Laurence Olivier. 

There are many famous men who wore two Rolex at the same time, including NASA Apollo Astronauts as well as figures like Fidel Castro. In the photo below, take in 1972 we see "Sir Laurence" wearing his two-tone Datejust along with another watch I can't make a positive ID on.

Laurence Olivier is considered by many to be one of the greatest actors who ever lived, and he left behind an amazing legacy, both on the stage, and in film and TV roles.

Laurence Olivier preferred for people to call him "Larry". Just to put things in perspective, he was born in England in 1907, three years after fellow British actor, Cary Grant (1904), and died three years after Cary Grant Died (1986) in 1989. In other words, both men lived to be 82 years old, born three years apart from each other.

Rolex Coolness: Sylvester Stallone

...Rolex Coolness...

Sylvester Stallone
Rocky Balboa Rolex Collection

If you listened to the T. Walker Lloyd podcast interviews I believe he spoke about his experiences with Sylvester Stallone. Sly is pictured below sporting his yellow gold Rolex Submariner with the black dial and bezel in the late 1970s or early 1980s. Since the yellow gold Rolex has no nickname I am officially nicknaming it the "Sylvester Stallone Submariner."

You have to click the play button on the video below to get into the true spirit of this know you wanna...

Rocky III

The Photo below was taken during Rocky III in 1982, and in it we see Sylvester Stallone wearing his yellow gold Rolex Submariner.

Speaking of Mr. T and Rolex; below is a photo of Mr. T wearing his blinged-out Rolex President.

Sylvester Stallone is picture below with John Travolta on the set of Stayin' Alive, which Sylvester Stallone directed. Sly is wearing his Rolex Submariner in the photo below.

Sylvester Stallone is pictured below with legendary boxer, Ray "Boom-Boom" Mancini."

Ronald Reagan and Sylvester Stallone
Two California Classics

Sylvester Stallone is pictured below with his wife at the time, Briget Nielsen at a White House party with then U.S. President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan.

Who You Callin' Girlyman!?!

Sly is pictured below with the Gubernator, and notice Arnold Schwarzenegger is wearing his yellow gold Rolex Mocha GMT on a Jubilee. Rolex seriously needs to bring back the brown bezel and dial on the yellow gold GMT Master–it was a superb color combination!!!

The photo below shows Sylvester Stallone holding his wife, Bridgette Nielsen up in the air on Long Island in 1987. The photo was taken by Herb Ritts, and if you look closely you can see Sly is wearing his Rolex Submariner.

Sly's Black-Out Concept Rolex Daytona

In the recent photo below, we see Sylvester Stallone wearing his customized Black-Out Concept Rolex Daytona.

1960s French Rolex Submariner Ads

Emmanuel from France is a fan of Jake's Rolex World and he recently sent in some really cool French Rolex ads from 1964 though 1966, which he found in a French magazine from the 1960s named, "Plongées", which was a scuba-diving magazine. The image below of the diver wearing a Rolex Submariner appeared in a French Magazine named "Géo", which was similar to National Geographic. Thank you so much for sharing these really cool ads with us Emmanuel!!!
