American Hero

The Bob’s Watches team wants to take a moment to remember the incredible road that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. paved that enabled all people to have a voice in our great nation. When there was so much turmoil in the world, Dr. King stood up and fought for what he believed in. Not only an inspiration but a true American Hero, Martin Luther King Jr. ignited a fire that forever changed the way Americans stood up for equality. His lists of accomplishments in such a short life are remarkable, and motivating speeches will forever be a memorialized.

The Rolex Datejust Ref. 1803 was worn by Dr. King.

Rolex President Datejust ref. 69138. Dr. King wore a Rolex Datejust.

Martin Luther King

Dr. King, a true patriot, fought for what he believed in and impacted our country like no one else ever has. His fight for peace and equality will forever be remembered as one of the most inspirational movements is American history. Today we remember the man that had “A Dream” and continue to strive for equality for all. Dr. King was a man who diligently fought back against unconstitutional rights and eventually winning the hearts of many Americans despite the tough resistance.

Aside from his accomplishments, we want to dial in on his watch. He wore an 18k gold Rolex Datejust. All gold with a jubilee bracelet makes for a watch fit for a man of his stature.

So often we associate the name “Rolex” with glitz, glamour or celebrities, but more often than not pre owned Rolex watches are worn by the everyday American that influences our country in such wonderful ways. When we discovered that Dr. King wore a Gold DateJust it reminded us of all the significant history associated with Rolex and the incredible people throughout time that wore the brand.
