Celebrities are known for being on the cutting edge of fashion and being the first to wear a certain bag, designer, shoe, etc. Once a celebrity is spotted wearing an unknown brand or item, you can bet that it will immediately receive attention and will go from an unknown brand to top-of-mind. Celebrities enjoy creating trends and leading the way with new fashions. However, one older, classic brand that you often see celebrities wearing is Rolex. It doesn’t seem to matter that Rolex watches have been around since 1905 and are not a new trend. The stars recognize that the Rolex brand has a name and reputation that has been around for over a decade and will continue to grow and thrive for many years to come. Maybe that is why the celebrities break from the fashion forward clothes to wear a vintage Rolex. Maybe they want their personal brand to be associated with the Rolex brand, a brand that has withstood the test of time and remains a respected leader throughout the years, no matter what new trends or brands may come along.
