Even Fed naysayers hv to admit that Fed is truly poetry in motion in this Rolex ad...

I like the background music! It's classy yet very powerful and well-suited to that commercial, just like Rogelio, I guess.

Rolex just grabbed him the moment his Maurice Lacroix deal was up, huh?

Actually there were about 3 more yrs left on the contract with lacroix. Roger (or more likely Rolex) paid a break up fee
I love that commercial:D

Which is one of the main reasons why Rolex is known among watch afficionados as "The best $1,500 watch that you'll ever buy for $4,000." All due to huge marketing costs.

you could replace the logo with a rolls-royce logo and it will do just fine :)




now is it true that top players are chaufered in Rolls-Royce as means of transportation? I was looking through a wimbledon book at the library and it was the case "back in the days" I figured they must still continue that tradition.

The music and the strokes of Fed just meshed perfectly together. A very stylish ad. I remember Rolex used to have A-Rod, with the same music. It was just crap. A-Rod + Heavy metal is more fitting....

I loved the Rolex commercial with Pat from a few years back

They're not?
That hard rock was not born in 1985 New Jersey......that Bon Jersey is not the root of all things metal?
So Phil is correct? Rolex is not the finest watch in the history of time!

Oh, man, next you guys are gonna tell us all that Serena is not the top player in the world.
