Carmen Electra and Rolex

Once more, Rolex Day Date.




Precision and innovation, transparent rarities differentiate the best from good. Rolex wristwatches captivate full attention. Rolex is a brand that has been producing unique watches since their beginning and has never stopped. Rolex enjoys a fine reputation of being the one that produces the finest wrist watches
Carmen Electra, born as Tara Leigh Patrick, worked as a fashion model and also as a dancer. She acted in low budget movies till she worked in the legendary TV series Baywatch as a chic lifeguard and shaped multiple appearances in Playboy. She was also awarded at the MTV Movie Awards for her role in Starsky & Hutch.



The Rolex Day Date is a symbol of a decorated exclusive watch.


Carmen Electra has a lot of vivacity, one of the main characteristics of the Rolex Day Date together with the personified elegance. With a streamlining shape and the finishing reflects the precision that has gone into making this timeless piece,  this watch is meant to epitomize time. Sparkling diamonds have been encrusted in the watch making it a visual treat with the flagship feature being the weekday display which can be preset in 26 distinct dialects. The 18 Carat Gold in which it is embellished is spectacular and the calendar mechanism in the watch takes a mere three milliseconds to navigate to the next day. The Oyster case in which it gets sheltered is put through 150 manufacturing strides to certify its waterproof ability. The watch can be taken to a depth of 330 feet and will still emerge unscathed by its effect. This is one model that is also preferred by divers wanting to keep a check on time while going beneath waters. The watch symbolizes style, a virtue exemplified by Carmen Electra.

Berlin's Wall Fall 20th anniversary

French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Rolex.




The Berlin Wall was breached after the East German government moves to lift restrictions on travel across the border to West Germany in November 9th, 1989.

Communist East Germany erected the 155-km (96-mile) concrete wall in august 3rd,1961 in order to encircle West Berlin and prevent citizens from fleeing into the capitalist enclave. More than 100 people are believed to have been killed at the Wall while trying to escape.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy posted on Facebook a picture of himself at the Berlin Wall on the fall's 20th annuversary.

The image shows Mr Sarkozy, then a 34-year-old French MP, standing before a graffiti-covered section of the wall back in 9 November 1989. Mr Sarkozy will today join world leaders in Berlin to mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Wall.
Nicolas Sarközy de Nagy-Bocsa was born on 28 January 1955. He is the 23rd President of the French Republic. He assumed the office on 16 May 2007 after defeating Socialist Party candidate Ségolène Royal 10 days earlier.




Nicolas Sarkozy is a true Rolex collector, with a particular appreciation for the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, which was made famous by the late American acting icon Paul Newman. He has been pictured many times wearing the classic white faced Daytona, but he seems to prefer the rarer black faced Daytona. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is easily recognized for its stainless steel case and an oysterlock bracelet. Rolex Cosmograph features an intricately fashioned dial, whether white or black, and a synthetic sapphire case. It is also water resistant to 100 meters. [Full article]

President's Watches

Nicolas Sarkozy's Rolex Collection.




Nicolas Sarközy de Nagy-Bocsa was born on 28 January 1955. He is the 23rd President of the French Republic. He assumed the office on 16 May 2007 after defeating Socialist Party candidate Ségolène Royal 10 days earlier.

Before his presidency, he was leader of the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP). Under Jacques Chirac's presidency, he served as Minister of the Interior in Jean-Pierre Raffarin's (UMP) first two governments (from May 2002 to March 2004), then was appointed Minister of Finances in Raffarin's last government (March 2004 to May 2005), and again Minister of the Interior in Dominique de Villepin's government (2005-2007).





Sarkozy was also president of the General council of the Hauts-de-Seine department from 2004 to 2007 and mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine, one of the wealthiest communes of France from 1983 to 2002. He was also Minister of the Budget in the government of Édouard Balladur (RPR, predecessor of the UMP) during François Mitterrand's last term.




Nicolas Sarkozy is a true Rolex collector, with a particular appreciation for the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, which was made famous by the late American acting icon Paul Newman. He has been pictured many times wearing the classic white faced Daytona, but he seems to prefer the rarer black faced Daytona. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is easily recognized for its stainless steel case and an oysterlock bracelet. Rolex Cosmograph features an intricately fashioned dial, whether white or black, and a synthetic sapphire case. It is also water resistant to 100 meters.



Probably one of the rarest and most expensive vintage Rolex watches on the market today, the anti-magnetic Rolex Datocompax Oyster Chronograph has always gone by the adopted name of the “Jean-Claude Killy” Rolex. Popular as the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona identified with Paul Newman or the Rolex Explorer II connected to Steve McQueen, the “Jean-Claude Killy” Rolex was only ever produced infrequently from the late 1950s to the late 1960s. Never reaching mass popularity during its production, this Rolex watch has become incredibly rare and valuable, selling at recent auctions for over $80,000.

What is the RK3DE?

Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event




THE ONLY FOUR STAR THREE-DAY EVENT IN THE AMERICAS

Because horse and rider combinations compete in World Championships and Olympic Games at the Four Star level, the ability to train and test themselves at this level on an annual basis is critical to developing strong individuals and teams for those contests.
While not every combination that competes at the Four Star level will be chosen to represent the U.S. or, in the case of foreign riders, their own country, the Rolex Four Star Championship, $200,000 in prize money and a Rolex Watch make the competition important in its own right. Additionally for U.S. riders, the USET Foundation CCI**** Championship for the Pinnacle Cup marks the high point of any U.S. rider's career.
To win Rolex Kentucky sets a horse and rider apart and they become members of that upper echelon who are winners of a CCI****. Simply to finish also puts them in select company.


ONE OF THREE EVENTS IN THE ROLEX GRAND SLAM OF EVENTING

The Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing awards $250,000 to the Rider who can win the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials in England the first weekend in May and the Burghley Land Rover Horse Trials in England the first of September in succession. In its 5th year in 2003, Pippa Funnell of Great Britain became the first Grand Slam winner with wins at Kentucky on Primmore's Pride, Badminton on Supreme Rock, and Burghley on Primmore's Pride, taking the $250,000 prize that most had thought impossible to win. When the next Grand Slam winner will burst onto the Eventing scene is anyone's guess.


In 2010, the RK3DE (Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event) will be set on April 22-25, at the Kentucky Horse Park.
