It's subjective, but the two most Iconic Rolex wearers Mcqueen and Newman both wore their watches in the Movie " Towering Inferno " Steve wore his 5512, and Paul his Daytona.

Clapton is God.
Just saw Clapton tonight at the Shark Tank here in San Jose.
You could see he was wearing his with some of the close up angle shots on the big screens around the arena. Camera wouldn't stay long enough for me to figure it out. Definitely a tt and guessing a sub but it could have been a gmt.
Anyone know for sure which one he wears?
