Today we will have a look at a special best quality replica Rolex Datejust. Scorsese is a dyed-in-the-wool cinephile. So when Newman wrote to him about directing a sequel to the legendary film The Hustler (1961) and offered to reprise his role as Fast Eddie Felson, you’d best believe Scorsese was interested. That film would become The Color of Money (1986). It’s a movie about nine-ball pool, sure – but really it’s a time capsule of early, maniacal Tom Cruise, and late, stoic (but still cool) Paul Newman – both at peak powers. Newman is best known for his namesake Daytona – but in this film, he dials it back and puts on the top Swiss fake Rolex of the people … the Datejust.
What’s so great about this movie, from a luxury copy watch perspective, is just how associated the cast and crew are with iconic timepieces. Newman, as mentioned here, there, and everywhere (underrated Beatles song), is synonymous with the Swiss made fake Rolex Daytona. Martin Scorsese is a current Rolex brand ambassador, and has often been seen wearing the iconic Day-Date, also known as the “President.” Tom Cruise? Oh, he’s a “film movies in outer space”, “hang off the wings of airplanes,” ”jump on a couch on Oprah,” “do all my own stunts” … ambassador. But for what it’s worth, he’s been known to wear a perfect replica Rolex or two in the past (like his TAG Heuer in Jerry Maguire).
For this film, Paul Newman breaks from his Bund strap, Daytona vibe, instead wearing a conservative 36mm best 1:1 replica Rolex Datejust – what appears to be the ref. 16200 – on a jubilee bracelet. His has an off-white, almost ivory-colored dial with a smooth bezel – meaning it’s all steel (no gold for Eddie Felson – it’d be too prone to scratches around the pool table). The AAA quality fake Rolex is visible on Newman’s wrist for almost the entire film, which makes sense since so many of the shots are of hands and wrists – it’s a movie about pool after all.
There’s a 24-year gap between the Hustler and The Color of Money. Felson doesn’t wear a Swiss movement fake Rolex Datejust in the original film, which means it’s left to our imagination how his character landed such an iconic watch on his felt-resting wrists. My money is on him buying it after a big tournament victory. We all need one great watch, and this is his.
There are almost too many good cheap super clone watches spotting scenes to reference – like the one where Felson approaches Lauria at his day job (in a toy store) and convinces him to hit the road for an upcoming nine-ball tournament. Seated in a makeshift break room in the store’s warehouse, Felson has a pressed grey suit, burgundy turtleneck, aviator sunglasses, killer mustache … and the glistening Rolex Datejust replica watches for sale on his wrist.
This movie has really stood the test of time, and the wholesale copy watches has been something of a tastemaker. Horological legend Aurel Bachs wrote a piece not too long ago, recalling how this movie led to his falling in love with this very Rolex Datejust replica watches online even going so far as naming it the “Eddie Felson.” It just goes to show you Paul Newman’s power as a style icon. He was – and is – way more than the racing chronograph that took his name.
