Brando's Rolex GMT-Master From 'Apocalypse Now'

Post by JAS1125 » July 12th 2019, 10:08am

You know that feeling you get when you find something that you assumed was lost? That feeling of pure bliss, as if you almost cheated the odds and have been granted a gift from on high? Well, if you're someone interested in the history of Rolex watches, cinema, or both, this should get your blood going: Phillips has unearthed the Rolex GMT-Master worn by legendary actor Marlon Brando as Colonel Kurtz in 1979's Apocalypse Now. This was was long assumed to be lost to time, but here it is, in the metal, ready to hit the auction block this winter in New York City.

Interesting story.
