I am a huge fan of Ellen DeGeneres. She has overcome all kinds of obstacles and challenges in her life over the years and now to her credit she reins supreme with her own show Ellen, making her a modern day Oprah. What really caught my attention was when she started her show, she frequently mentioned she wanted to wear a stainless steel Rolex Submariner No-Date. Recently, I was watching her show and she wearing a Rolex 18kyg Daytona on a solid 18k yellow gold bracelet with a white dial. Not many women today have the balls to wear a watch like this because of it’s masculine nature, but Ellen pulls it of flawlessly with elegance, style and grace with an everyday wearing sensibility that is really endearing.
What I love most about Rolex is that they are so incredibly iconic that there is no mistaking what it is. Rolex is the universal symbol of success. A solid gold Rolex can look really flashy and intentionally pretentious, but it really depends on the person wearing it. In this case, Ellen takes a $35,000 solid yellow gold watch and makes it look really classy as she wears it casually loose and slinky. This is a great example of someone wearing a Rolex watch and making it fit perfectly. I applaud Ellen’s taste and her love for Rolex watches. She is a great role model and I hope this inspires women to take risks to start wearing bigger watches that fit them right, because the right big watches on women are sexy, hot and just incredible!
