Icon7 Rolex into Favorite Movie Scenes...

Here's mine... Please add yours. Let's have some fun!

Judge: You don't have to answer that question!
Jessup: I'll answer the question. You want answers?
Kaffee: I think I'm entitled!
Jessup: You want answers?!
Kaffee: I want the truth!
Jessup: You can't handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has Rolex's, and those Rolex's have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for a new Platinum Daytona with the ice blue dial and chestnut bezel and you curse the AD's who sell them. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know, that an AD's markup, while tragic, probably saves Rolex's brand image. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves your Rolex's future value! You don't want the truth, because deep down in places you don't talk about at Rolex parties, you want me at that sales counter. You need me on that sales counter. We use words like "oyster", "cyclops", "950 platinum". We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very value that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just said "thank you", and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a Datejust II w/ blue stick, and take a selfie. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!
Kaffee: Did you order the ROLEX sold at MSRP?
Jessup: I did the job that—-
Kaffee: Did you order the Rolex not be discounted?!!
Jessup: YOU'RE G**D*** RIGHT I DID!!

Here is one more....

[Blake]
Let me have your attention for a moment! So you're talking about what? You're talking about bitching about that Rolex GMT II Master sale you shot, some jerk that doesn't want to buy, somebody that doesn't want what you're selling, some broad you're trying to close and so forth. Let's talk about something important. Are they all here?

[Williamson]
All but one.

[Blake]
Well, I'm going anyway. Let's talk about something important! (to Levene) Put that new Rolex sales catalog down! The new 2014 catalogs are for closers only. (Levene scoffs) Do you think I'm screwing with you? I am not screwing with you. I'm here from New York. I'm here from Mitch and Murray. And I'm here on a mission of mercy. Your name's Levene?

[Levene]
Yeah.

[Blake]
You call yourself a Rolex AD, you're a piece of garbage?!

[Moss]
I don't have to listen to this crap.

[Blake]
You certainly don't pal. Cause the good news is -- you're fired. The bad news is you've got, all you got, just one week to regain your jobs, starting tonight. Starting with tonight's closings. Oh, have I got your attention now? Good. Cause we're adding a little something to this month's sales contest. As you all know, first prize is a NIB Yachtmaster II in white gold. Anyone want to see second prize? Second prize's a set of steak knives. Third prize is you're fired. You get the picture? You're laughing now? You got customer leads. Mitch and Murray paid good money. Get their names to sell them! You can't close the leads you're given, you can't close crap, you ARE crap, hit the message boards pal and beat it cause you are going out!

[Levene]
The leads are weak.

[Blake]
"The leads are weak." Screw "leads are weak"? You're weak. I've been in this business fifteen years.

[Moss]
What's your name?

[Blake]
Screw you, that's my name! You know why, Mister? Cause you drove a Hyundai to get here tonight, I drove an eighty thousand dollar BMW. That's my name! (to Levene) And your name is "you're wanting." And you can't play in a man's game. You can't close them. (at a near whisper) And you go home and tell your wife your troubles. (to everyone again) Because only one thing counts in this life! Get them to buy those Rolex's and pay with cash or credit card, but no American Express, those fees are killers! You hear me, you donkey butts?

(Blake flips over a blackboard which has two sets of letters on it: ABC, and AICA.)

[Blake]
A-B-C. A-always, B-be, C-closing. Always be closing! Always be closing!! A-I-C-A. Attention, interest, claim a price increase is expected soon, and action. Attention -- do I have your attention? Interest - I know you are! Claim an imminent price Increase- you can't afford it now, how can you next week? You close or you hit the bricks! And action. A-I-C-A; get out there!! You got the customers comin' in; you think they came into to your stores to get out of the rain? Guy doesn't walk into your jewelry store unless he wants to buy a Rolex. Sitting out there waiting to give you their money! Are you gonna take it? Are you man enough to take it? (to Moss) What's the problem pal? You. Moss.

[Moss]
You're such a hero, you're so rich. Why you coming down here and wasting your time on a bunch of AD's?

(Blake sits and takes off his 2013 solid yellow gold Day-Date w/ diamond bezel on a jubilee bracelet)

[Blake]
You see this watch? You see this watch?

[Moss]
Yeah.

[Blake]
That watch cost more than your car. I made $970,000 last year. How much you make? You see, pal, that's who I am. And you're nothing. Nice guy? I don't give a crap. Good father?
Screw you -- go home and play with your kids!! (to everyone) You wanna be an AD for Rolex? Close!! (to Aaronow) You think this is abuse? You think this is abuse, you jerk? You can't take this -- how can you take the abuse you get from a looker who's wearing a Fossil?! You don't like it -- leave. I can go out there tonight with the inventory you got, make myself fifteen thousand dollars! Tonight! In two hours! Can you? Can you? Go and do likewise! A-I-C-A!! Get mad! You sons of Tag Heuer! Get mad!! You know what it takes to sell Rolex's?

(He pulls something out of his briefcase)

[Blake]
It takes brass balls to sell Rolex's.

(He's holding two brass balls on string, over the appropriate "area"--he puts them away after a pause)

[Blake]
Go and do likewise, gents. The money's out there, you pick it up, it's yours. You don't--I have no sympathy for you. You wanna go out on those customers tonight and close, close, it's yours. If not you're going to be shining my shoes. Bunch of losers sitting around in a bar. (in a mocking weak voice) "Oh yeah, I used to be a Rolex AD, it's a tough racket." (he takes out large stack of red index cards tied together with string from his briefcase) These are the new customer leads. These are the Rolex web site leads. And to you, they're gold. And you don't get them. Why? Because to give them to you is just throwing them away. (he hands the stack to Williamson) They're for closers.

I'd wish you good luck but you wouldn't know what to do with it if you got it. (to Moss as he puts on his watch again) And to answer your question, pal: why am I here? I came here because Mitch and Murray asked me to, they asked me for a favor. I said, the real favor, follow my advice and fire your behinds because a loser is a loser.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Explorers on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched 1803s glitter in the dark near the Tannhuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like Seadwellers in rain. Time to die.

Ok. Just one more. Not a movie though. I think you all will get it. And I love the Sierra Madre one. Love that movie! Ok...I hope you like this one.

Four weeks and six days ago my, now, ex-husband brought home to this house a new Rolex Explorer II in SS with white dial, stamped from 904L solid steel, and on an Oyster bracelet with the Easylink clasp so that all men can be fitted equal.

Now we are engaged in a great ex-spousal war, testing whether our union, or any matrimonial union, so conceived and so dedicated, can be expected to long endure such purchase. We are met on a great battlefield of that marriage. We had agreed to dedicate a portion of our income, as to avoid strife, for those purchases that were absolutely needed so that we could live our lives debt free so that our heirs here might live better than we. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should have done this.

But, in a larger sense, I could not tolerate, I could not accept, I could not allow this to stand. The poor souls, living and dead, who had struggled to tell their mates of their uh-approved exorbitant purchases, had consecrated it, far above my now poor families ability to add or detract. The neighborhood will little note, nor long remember why I divorced him, but it will never forget that I tossed his sorry butt out on a cold night in his tighty whities. It is for us the sane, rather, to be rational here to the unfinished work of trying to return an 'almost' NIB Rolex and to fight to re-sticker all those little bitty pieces of plastic so plentifully attached and hard to find until weeks later back on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to that great task remaining before us—that from these dishonored Rolex junkies we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of marriage devotion—that we here highly resolve that these idiots shall not have been been divorced in vain—that this wife, under God, shall have a new husband—and that the checkbook of the family, by the family, for the family, shall, going forward, require two signatures.

OK, I'm not nearly as much of a WIS as most here, but this sounds like fun:

Jason Bourne: Who has a safety deposit box full of money and six passports and a 1680 red Submariner? Who has a list of Rolex ADs in their hip? I come in here, and the first thing I'm doing is I'm checking out watches and looking for an exit.

Marie: I see the exit sign, too, I'm not worried. I mean, you lost your watch. People do all kinds of weird and amazing stuff when they are scared.

Jason Bourne: I can tell you the reference numbers of all six watches in here. I can tell you that our waitress’ DJ has a mother-of-pearl face with diamond markers and that the guy sitting up at the counter has a DSSD, an 8 inch wrist, and knows how to handle himself. I know the closest place to send a Rolex for service is NY or Dallas, and at this altitude, the power reserve of my BLNR GMT is 48 hours. Now why would I know that? How can I know that and not know who I am?

This is my Rolex. There are many others like it, but this is mine. My Rolex is my best friend. It is my life. I must wear it as I must wear a Rolex. Without me my Rolex is useless. Without my Rolex I am useless.

From the movie Pulp Fiction, edited for language:

The way your dad looked at it, this Rolex was your birthright. He'd be damned if any fool's gonna put their greasy little hands on his boy's birthright, so he hid it, in the one place he knew he could hide something: his rear. Five long years, he wore this Rolex up his rear. Then when he died of dysentery, he gave me the Rolex. I hid this uncomfortable piece of metal up my rear for two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the Rolex to you.
