Wonderful write up of the history of how the watch was gifted to Eisenhower here.

I listened to him while he was still "university popular." Alot of his early work got me through some heartache during college.

He is a true Rolex fan. He doesnt just wear Rolex, he is knowledgeable about Rolex.

Not easy to pick just one celeb...

I guess my favorite would be Paul Newman:

Correct.

LBJ wore a Day-Date on a President bracelet.

DDE wore a Datejust on a jubilee bracelet. None are referred to as President
(except DDE)

You better take it of, every Rolex model has been on a celebrity wrist

One could say that Rolex itself is a celebrity

I generally don't either, and would never buy a specific model or brand because so-and-so wears one.

I'm a big fan of Clapton, and had no idea he was into Rolex until I joined TRF a few months ago, and I'm happy to say I made my choice for a Sub-C independent of that.

I agree, this is a good school.

If you haven't read it already here's a good article about Ike's DJ:
