A ROLEX, A STORY – SIR. JACKIE STEWART
Sir.Jackie Stewart, from 1966 to 1973, won for three times the Formula 1 Grand PRIX DE MONACO. Sir Stewart, nicknamed as “Flying Scotsman,” was one of the most outstanding drivers in the history of Formula-1 Racing, but he was known for his promotion of racing car safe driving outside the game. He has acted as a Rolex spokesperson for nearly 50 years, and the Monaco tournament, which marks the peak of his career, is the most gorgeous, glamorous and exciting Grand Prix to him. Today, he looks at his watch, reminding him of his brilliant achievements and how he can win with incredible skill and speed.
“It feels good to be a champion,
I wish I could be a champion at everything and do my best, but it’s really a big challenge.”
As the biggest black horse of the competition, I learned to understand emotion management. I found that if I could leave my emotions behind, there would be less chance of error and I could concentrate more. I usually win within the first five laps of the game because my opponents are overly anxious, nervous and concentrated. So whenever I get into the cockpit, I put aside my personal emotions. This is particularly important for the Formula 1 Grand Prix held in Monaco, which I won for three times with emotion management.

Now I am wearing this Rolex Daytona, which I won in a classic tournament in Monaco in the late 1960s. Over the years, I have been keeping it and often wear it. It’s really a classic watch that reminds me of the good old days and of the most glamorous and exciting grand Prix in the sports season.
In that year, Many celebrities gathered in Monaco to attend the Tournament, including the Beatles, and movie stars such as Steve McQueen, Peter Ustinov, Betty Davis and Sean Connery. This tournament is regarded as a classic Formula One Game, and a reflection of splendidness of the Grand Prix. Winning the tournament in Monaco has a special significance. At that time, all of the attendees showed graceful styles, and at every Saturday night the Princess Grace and Prince Rainier would hold a party in the royal palace. It is a great honor for me to sit next to Princess Grace and talk to her. The Monte Carlo game has a lot of historical significances, and my watch is full of the same qualities that make me feel confident.
50 years have passed, today, this watch reminds me of how I can win with my skill and speed. It will be with me for the rest of the time. I have given my son some of my Rolex watches, which have now been passed on to my grandchildren. Let the offspring feel the charm of Rolex and every joy in my life. When I first joined the Rolex as a spokesperson, the newspaper and magazine published an Ad with the United Nations as its background and its headline reads: “If you are going to speak here tomorrow, Rolex watches are your best choice.” “I think that’s a good idea. When I started wearing a Rolex, I felt I would be on the road to success.
“50 years have passed, today, this watch reminds me of how I can win with my skill and speed.”
It feels really good to be a champion and I hope that whatever I do I can do the best, but it’s a big challenge. Today I look at the watch and I could see it all. I see not only the quality of excellence but also the fruits of my efforts. No matter it is now or years ago in Monaco where I got this watch, it matters in my heart.

Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Serial Mechanical Watch
I will share my own experience of adjusting time. Pull the watch handle to first gear to adjust the day and date, pull it to the second gear to adjust the time.
Firstly, don’t adjust the date when the watch hand is on the latter half circle at 24:00 and the time is between 10:00 and 2:00 pm, because this may damage the date transmission gear. Firstly adjust the time to make it fall beyond 10:00 to 2:00 pm, then dial the rotary knob to adjust the date, for example, today is 26th, you have to adjust the date to 25th, then dial it outwards, adjust the hand to make sure the date jumps to 26th, then adjust the time properly, (if it is in the morning, you need to adjust the hour hand by less than a circle, if it is in the afternoon, you need to adjust it by more than a circle, let the hand at 24:00 move more than a half. ) be sure to make the 24:00 conform to the real time.
The Appearance Value of Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Serial Watch
The watch appearance includes the degree of newness of movement and degree of wear of appearance, whether the movement is broken and maintained, whether the parts are damaged. The price of watch will be higher if it is brand new with a package, instruction book or certificate, the price will be lower if not, the watches with a damaged or poor appearance or broken movement will not sell at a good price.
