Wayne Gretzky And The Rolex Milgauss: The “Great” Ones

Wayne Gretzky

Rolex is one luxury watch brand that has set great expectations for itself in the world of watch-making. Each timepiece from the house of Rolex is designed to perfection. Rolex timepieces are not only charming to look at but also guarantee a reliable and long-lasting performance. One such reliable player has been Wayne Gretzky also known as The Great Gretzky. Although he has retired from ice hockey as a player, he still remains a great influence on emerging talent as a head coach. Rolex has been an influence on the world of watches as well. Rolex has been a pioneer to manufacture water-proof watches and now any watch from its Oyster collection boasts of a privileged association with water.

Wayne Gretzky has had a “great” and privileged association with ice hockey. He started his career as a professional ice hockey player with minor hockey and proved more talented than his peers. His reading of the game and intelligence made him a master of setting up behind the net, so much so that it was called “Gretzky’s office”. He played the centre position. Wayne Gretzky started by signing up with Indianapolis Racers of the World Hockey Association before he moved on to the Edmonton Oilers. He amassed accolades during his career. He has nine Hart Trophies as most valuable player, ten Art Ross Trophies for most points in a season, five Lady Byng Trophies for sportsmanship and performance, five Lester B. Pearson Awards and two Conn Smythe Trophies as playoff MVP to his credit. He is the only NHL player who could total over 200 points in one season. He retired in1999 and was immediately included in the Hockey Hall of Fame without any waiting period. During the 2002 Winter Olympics he was the Executive Director for the Canadian national men’s hockey team. He is currently a part-owner of the Phoenix Coyotes and has also been the club’s head coach as well as head of hockey operations.

Rolex Milgauss

The Rolex Milgauss is a timepiece especially designed to function as precisely in operating conditions with a high magnetic field as it normally would. Watches that are worn in areas with a high magnetic field need to be demagnetized after exit as the magnetic field can wreak havoc with the movement and make it work faster. The Rolex Milgauss is designed to resist a magnetic flux density of up to 1,000 gauss making it ideal for individuals working in labs and other places with a high magnetic density. Just like its contemporaries the Rolex Milgauss is water-resistant to depths of 100 metres/330 feet. The dial has white and orange elements and is outlined with green sapphire. The bezel is made of polished steel. The seconds hand has an interesting design as it is in the shape of a thunderbolt. The chronometer is officially certified by the COSC that further adds to the reliability of the timepiece. The watch has an oyster case back that protects the movement from dust, water, shocks and pressure. Thus, the Rolex Milgauss makes for an extremely reliable timepiece that guarantees with long-term performance, just like Wayne Gretzky who was the most reliable player for any team that he was a member.

Jon Fogarty Cherishes The Rolex Move Of The Year Feat

Jon Fogarty

When Canada features in the grounds for hosting an event that is as prestigious and renowned as the Grand Am the aim is always to deliver what may be called experiences of a lifetime. This came true for Jon Fogarty who got the opportunity to appear at the top rungs of racing in a Rolex sponsored racing event and the driver very evidently made his joy at his performance in the event obvious to all sports enthusiasts across the world.

The driver achieved the success that he had been hopeful of getting for the longest time putting years of practice and patience forward to achieve this feat. His move in the race has been voted as the Rolex Move of the Year which is an honor that participants in the Grand Am may not be actively looking out for but when it actually happens for them it becomes a cause for great celebration and kudos. This is also a marker that is looked forward to by most racing drivers participating in the event because this is also a platform for the players to recognize the fan base and support that they can call their own.

Jon Fogarty’s move- the race winning pass of Ganassi’s Scott Pruett that came about atop the Corkscrew at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Jon Fogarty personally may not believe that this is the best that he has done so far however couldn’t allow the support and encouragement that his fans have shown him to not overwhelm him. He spoke out later talking about the Brumos team of being the best contender for the opportunity, also mentioning how the pass that his car had made could have met with a disaster had it not had an adept driver like him behind the wheels.

Rolex

The rush that came with the knowledge of having made this feat possible was all the more well deserved because the event also witnessed a head to head battle between the best cars in the circuit. The racing arena in Canada provided the best possible location for the success of the historic moment. The competition was heated till the very last moment of the race and this was made possible because the participants had brought with them a determination to reach the heights of success in every way possible. It was understandable that the Rolex Move of the Year couldn’t have been created in solitude. If the sharp hair pin bends that the drivers had to make were not challenging enough, there were moments that stretched into eternity when there came a time when the drivers had to haggle for the finishing best at the chicane.

The race took a completely new turn from here onwards, Jon Fogarty pressed on the brakes with a passionate intensity that also sealed the fate for other players. The move was one where things could have gone wrong, had the drivers who came together at the bend not used their better judgment. In most cases, racers have had to face a situation when one car would bash over the curbs and the other would head straight towards straight lining the chicane. However as with every historic moment this time too things fell beautifully into place, both cars passing along each other on the curve and making Jon Fogarty the rightful winner of the Rolex Move of the Year award.

Laura Regan And Rolex Cellini Orchid Keep It Short And Simple

Laura Regan

Rolex watches have since long maintained a distance from the regularities that would define a luxury watch in every way possible. Rolex watches have their own definitions of luxury and they like to keep it very short and simple. Rolex has very thoroughly understood that the impact that something which is simple, yet elegant can create as opposed to something that may be expensive but turns out to be an ostentatious display of wealth. Rolex will incorporate all possible ways to make sure that the watch exudes classiness in every way possible especially through its design but it also makes sure that the watch will not be an assortment of jewels.

The Rolex Cellini Orchid personifies this character of the watch, starting from finding ways to make this watch come across as an extremely classy and elegant time keeper to actually making sure that every promise that the Rolex makes it delivers. The Rolex Cellini Orchid in every possible way likes that which is short and simple. Laura Regan relates to the simplicity of an ideology in ways that many people can’t, she has always made sure that her performances never lose the essence of a great role.

Laura Regan has always been interested in theatre, building her career in acting from where it usually begins. The art of ballet that the actress trained herself in lent to her acting performances a natural grace that came across vividly in the performances that the she passionately enacts in her film/series roles. The very first film bagged by the actress was M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable, the actress delivering a performance that belied her experience. Her other role that also brought her a lot of attention was in Robert Harmon’s They. Laura Regan has also been the recipient of an award from the Annual Atlantic Film Festival for her contribution in My Little Eye. The actress has also lent her acting talent to Saving Jessica Lynch, Someone Like You, Hollow Man 2, Dead Silence and made an appearance in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Rolex Cellini Orchid

The Rolex Cellini Orchid is a superlative chronometer that offers to the wearer always more than she can ask for. The kind of watchmaking that Rolex has made a name for itself in is what one would call luxurious because when it comes to luxurious watches Rolex is a far cry from the regular luxury brands in watch making. The Rolex Cellini Orchid is in every sense of the term a one in a million watch. The style that the Rolex Cellini Orchid offers together with the performance that the watch can truly vouch for makes the watch a lot more than just another Rolex watch. The Rolex Cellini Orchid is what it exudes through every diamond bit that forms a part of the watch, an extremely classy watch that is worth the investment in it.

The watch is strictly feminine, in more ways than one, the Rolex Cellini Orchid has a gem set case that is adorned in diamonds all over, the watch is also fitted with diamond markers. The Rolex Cellini Orchid also has a bracelet giving the wearer to either choose between a leather strap and a gem set adorned bracelet. The Rolex Cellini Orchid has an 18ct yellow gold finish and when set in contrast with the white mother of pearl finish of the dial of the watch the Rolex Cellini Orchid truly sets itself apart from other luxury watches. The Rolex Cellini Orchid like Laura Regan very evidently and very effectively likes to keep things short and simple.

Voting For ISAF Rolex World Sailor Of The Year Awards 2009 Concludes

ISAF Rolex World Sailor 2009

With the voting process already wrapped up, everyone’s attention is now focused towards the presentation and dinner at the ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Awards that will take place on Tuesday 10 November 2009. The scheduled venue for the announcement of winners is the Busan Yacht Club, Busan, Korea. After all the grueling sailing events and tough competition that the sailors go through being rewarded at this prestigious ceremony makes it all worth it. Each of the winners shall be honored with the ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Award Trophy and a unique Rolex timepiece.

Rolex stands for excellence in the world of watch making and through its association with sporting events it hopes to bring forth and reward the sporting world’s best talent. Being a part of Rolex sponsored events itself is an honor for any sportsperson. All the competing sportspersons are the best in their field and also bring nothing less than the best to the competition. However, when the reward happens to be a Rolex timepiece along with the trophy, for sure it gives them the extra motivation to deliver par excellence.

ISAF MNAs (Member National Authorities) is the national governing body for sailing the world over. Each MNA is supposed to vote for the one male and one female sailor who they believe is the most deserving and rightful candidate for the award. This year too the ISAF MNAs have selected the deserving winners for the ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Awards. The nominees and winners were chosen on the basis of their achievements during the qualifying period beginning September 1 2008 to August 31 2009.

ISAF Rolex World Sailor Of The Year Awards Trophy

The female nominees this year include Sam Davies (GBR), Hilary Lister (GBR), Blanca Manchón (ESP) and Anna Tunnicliffe (USA). The male nominees include Pascal Bidégorry (FRA), Michel Desjoyeaux (FRA), Paul Goodison (GBR), Torben Grael (BRA) and Nathan Outteridge (AUS). It is a close call and the MNAs have a tough decision on their hands as all of the nominees have proved their excellence on the waves. To be able to compete in Rolex events and emerge as the winner itself is quite a task and tests sportspersons to the extreme. And with the world’s best sailing talent making it to the nomination list, the MNAs had some very difficult choice to make.

Each nominee has a brilliant list of achievements to add to his or her credit and thereby to the confusion of the MNAs. With the Busan Yacht Club in Korea chosen as the picturesque venue for the announcement, the effort of the sailors and the MNAs would be aptly rewarded. The club is located close to the famous Haeundae Beach and Dalmaji Hill. The club also offers shark diving at the Busan Aquarium. From sailing with the sharks at the competition to diving with them at the Busan Yacht Club will definitely help the sharks of the sailing world bond with the sharks of the ocean. Rolex not only makes its events special but the reward ceremonies prove to be as extravagant as the competitions.

Torri Higginson And The Rolex Cellini Danaos Know That Details Rule The World

Tori Higginson

Rolex watches are always in demand from people who invest in watches and don’t merely buy them. Rolex is a name in excellence when it comes to watch making and when Rolex tabs an association with the wearer it does so for a lifetime. The Cellini collection had been founded with the specific purpose of getting to people what they liked. Rolex had spent years deciphering the individual tastes of people and hence making Rolex watches had been a craft as involved as it can get. The Cellini collection offers more than mere watch making, it gives to people what is called an experience of a lifetime, making a great deal out of the smallest details that go into constructing the finesse of the watch. The Rolex Cellini Danaos is an extremely suitable watch for those who appreciate professionalism and punctuality. The Rolex watches are crafted in a manner that makes these watches more than just a mere time keeper. Rolex Cellini watches always make it a point to cover the distance between luxury and comfort. What makes the Rolex Cellini watch a class apart from other watches is the fact that these watches are always at par with human excellence. Rolex Cellini Danaos is a watch that is a far cry from the typical luxury watches; Rolex doesn’t prioritize its design as much as it does the performance that is delivered by these watches. Torri Higginson has come a long way in her life performing nuanced characters and perfecting the art of acting to the t.

The Canadian actress has lent her acting credits to films like TekWar, the entire series of it, the award Rolex Cellini Danaos
winning film English Patient and Stargate Atlantis. She has always prioritized the importance of detailing in her character roles because the industry knows that what makes or breaks a character is the detailing that goes into the performance. The actress has also lent her acting talent to the film Jungleground. Torri Higginson has won the Gemini Award in the year 2000 for her role in The City and also grabbed the Saturn Award in 2005 for Stargate Atlantis. The actress is awaiting the release of her film Smile of April this year.

The Rolex Cellini Danaos combines a rare mix of pink and white gold in a way that maybe many watches have tried before but have not made the kind of impact that this watch has been able to make. The black dial of the watch perfectly complements that rest of the finish of the watch. The Rolex Cellini Danaos is also equipped with a brown leather strap that keeps the watch inspiring the wearer to always strive to do the best that he/she can for themselves. The watch keeping in sync with the need of the times carries a quartz movement that makes the watch a delight to own. The Rolex Cellini Danaos is extremely detailed in both its appearance and performance and like Tori Higginson knows that the success of things lies mostly in the fact that a lot of detailing has gone into perfecting it.
