Aniston Wearing Rolex Given to Her by Ex

Written by Debbie. Posted in More News

Is it okay to still wear a watch or ring that a boyfriend gave you if you’ve broken up? This question is especially sensitive when it comes to engagement rings and broken engagements. Should the woman give the ring back? Or should she keep it? Does it depend on who broke the engagement? I think the state of Florida actually has a law about this that says the ring should be returned to its rightful owner, who in this case would be the guy: the one that paid for it.rolex

Watches, especially costly, luxury watches can easily cost as much or more than an engagement ring and watches are given all the time by those who have the funds to give them as a birthday gift, a get well gift, or for any ol’ reason.

For some reason, celebrities, maybe because they have so much money and half the time don’t know what to do with it, buy each other watches. Rolex seems to be the preferred brand among the rich and famous and it doesn’t seem to matter whether you’ve been going out for a week or a year, it’s common for celebs to give fancy watches.

Jennifer Aniston has all the money in the world and she’s a classy lady. She’s been known to wear vintage Cartier watches but lately has been seen wearing the Rolex that was given to her by then “boy- toy” John Mayer before they broke up. They had an on again, off again romance (for a whole, big four months), but throughout the ups and downs, Aniston had that gold Rolex on her wrist. And now, all of a sudden, it’s back on… the watch that is.  As for the romance, who knows?

The gossip world is wondering if and what this means. A possible reunion? Is she sending Mayer a message? Some say it’s her way of flirting with him. Mayer himself is a collector of Rolex watches, so perhaps she’s trying to show him that they have something in common? A reason to re-connect?

The gossip world would like to think that there’s something brewing.

DJ AM Was a Fan of Rolex Watches

Written by Debbie. Posted in More News

This past weekend a tragic thing happened; 36 year old DJ AM, Adam Goldstein, passed away. He was found dead in his apartment in New York.  DJ AM was a talented figure in the world of music and will be missed by many.

Almost exactly a year ago, on September 19, 2008, DJ AM survived an intense plane crash that killed four other people. During his many years of spinning records he always wore a Rolex and on that fateful day he had a vintage Rolex on. Pictures of the burned Rolex surfaced on the Internet, some thought DJ AM was making a statement that he no longer wanted to wear Rolex watches of which he had become a fan. But that wasn’t the case; what he was trying to do, was show the public how bad the crash had been and if anything, this was a major testament to the durability of Rolex watches.

Less than a month after the plane crash, on October 16, 2008, DJ AM gave a “comeback” performance at the Hollywood Palladium. He was miraculously back on stage, spinning records and seen wearing a Rolex Datejust. Although during the time of the crash DJ AM had broken up with then girlfriend Mandy Moore, it was rumored that she had given him this new Datejust to replace the vintage one that was ruined.rolex-datejust-watch

As we now mourn the passing of another young, talented life gone too quickly, a DJ AM Memorial Tribute Round Italian Charm watch that features a picture of him, is already circulating around the Internet.

In addition to collecting Rolex watches, DJ AM was a serious fan of Nike sneakers. He had over 600 pairs, including a pair of Nike Air Force 1 shoes that were created just for him and which featured his DJ AM logo on the shoe.

Perhaps both Rolex and Nike should make a luxury watch and special pair of sneakers to honor the life of this young man, who had overcome so many personal obstacles.
