Brooke Shields Watch is a Rolex Day-Date (published: 27 July 2010). Today in famous ladies watches, we bring you Brooke Shields and her Rolex Day Date watch. As we mentioned in an earlier post, the Rolex Day-Date is also called the Rolex President watch.
Wikipedia tells us why:
The Rolex Day-Date is an officially certified, self-winding chronometer wristwatch notable for becoming the first wristwatch with a day-date function. Nicknamed the “Rolex President watch”, the Day-Date has long been synonymous with prestige, power, and exclusivity. In 1948, the Chairman of Rolex presented President Eisenhower with an 18kt yellow gold Datejust watch, one of the company’s exclusive watches, to celebrate the Allied victory over the Nazis in World War II. However, in 1956, Eisenhower’s watch needed a new bracelet. The new bracelet with a concealed clasp was nicknamed the “President’s bracelet”, but soon the Day-Date watch was also nicknamed the “President”. Most likely, this is because is the same year the Day-Date watch was introduced.
Other famous people who wear Rolex Day-Date include: Bono who famously wore it to meet President Obama and tennis great Arthur Ashe.
