President Ronald Reagan Rolex
Stainless Steel Rolex Datejust: Jubilee Bracelet
California Summer of 1965
I discovered yet another U.S. President wearing a Rolex!!! This time we have Ronald Reagan wearing a stainless steel Rolex Datejust on a Jubilee Bracelet during the Summer of 1965 on his California Ranch. Of course these photos were taken before he was even elected the Governor of California, so he was just an ordinary American Citizen who was semi-retired.
"There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit." –Ronald Reagan
So this means, that Ronald Reagan is the second American President to wear a Rolex Datejust after Dwight Eisenhower. Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton wore Rolex Day-Dates, and I have heard Richard Nixon wore a Rolex, but I have still not been able to find a photo of him wearing a Rolex. I also think Harry Truman may have worn a Rolex Datejust, but I have not been able to document that either.
"I've often said there's nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse." –Ronald Reagan
"Each generation goes further than the generation preceding it because it stands on the shoulders of that generation. You will have opportunities beyond anything we have ever known." –Ronald Reagan
The photo below shows President Reagan on his ranch in 1983 chopping wood, and his is still wearing his stainless steel Rolex Datejust.
