For decades, Rolex has been linked to the world of cinema. The brand’s watches made appearances in iconic films. For example, when Marlon Brando played his legendary role as Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now, he was wearing a Rolex watch.

In The Color Of Money, Paul Newman sported one as he manipulated a pool cue as Fast Eddie Felson. Bill Paxton, as treasure hunter Brock Lovett for Titanic, was wearing a Rolex as he descended to the famous wreck in a submersible.
