Vintage Rolex Watch Advertisements: Jackie Stewart’s Rolex Oyster Day Date. Time for more vintage Rolex watch adverts and, this time, let us check out these print ads for the Rolex Oyster Day Date which features Scottish racing legend Jackie Stewart. Also known as The Flying Scott, Jackie competed in Formula One from 1965 to 1973 and, during this period, he managed to win three World Drivers’ Championships. His accomplishments on the race track earned him many plaudits including being knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 2001.

Today in vintage watches, we bring you Martin Luther King and his Rolex Datejust watch. Okay, here’s a pop culture question for you: What do Bryan Williams, Harrison Ford and Martin Luther King have in common? These guys (and gal, in the case of Kim) all wear (wore in the case of MLK) a Rolex Datejust . We kinda feel bad putting the great civil rights leader MLK in a group with girl-with-the-great-behind Kim K, but it’s more interesting this way. Hehe.
