High Quality Swiss Rolex GMT Master Vintage Replica

Rolex GMT Master Vintage Replica in Association With Bacs & Russo is pleased to announce the sale a previously undiscovered Rolex GMT Master Vintage that Steve McQueen owned. McQueen gave the watch to Rolex as a gift. The caseback bears the inscribed words, "TO LOREN, THE BEST DAMN STUNTMAN WORLD". It was believed to have been destroyed in a fire.

The watch is the most significant watch ever associated with Steve McQueen and comes up for auction because of its fascinating history - it was owned by Rolex until his passing - as well as its incredible story of survival.

Steve McQueen is long regarded as the "King of Cool" on the silver screen. He rose to be one of the most highly sought-after and highest-paid actors in Hollywood. He starred in some of the biggest-grossing films of his time. Each role was a challenge to McQueen's determination and ferocity, which he gained from a turbulent childhood. McQueen was the American male's epitome. He was described as a rebel, loner and an American hero. McQueen's coolness wasn't forced on him or influenced - it was simply innate. McQueen was a pilot, raced motorcycles and flew planes. He even finished second to Mario Andretti's Ferrari Team at the 1970 12 Hours of Sebring, in a Porsche 908/02. The Rolex GMT Master Vintage was the watch he needed to keep up with his lifestyle.

swiss Rolex GMT Master Vintage Replica, McQueen??s stunt double, was put to the test by McQueen. This show propelled McQueen into public attention - Wanted Dead or Alive, which McQueen starred from 1958 to 1961 on Western television. Janes said that two doubles had been fired. Janes simply met McQueen at his home and said that he could make him look better than he thought possible. McQueen asked Janes to be his stunt double for any movie on which they had the time. Rolex was McQueen??s stunt double in nineteen of McQueen??s 27 major motion pictures. Janes and McQueen have been close friends for a lifetime. They were in touch before McQueen left for Mexico to receive medical treatment.

Janes was a remarkable stuntman and was a stunt double until his retirement in 2002. He also served as a coordinator for other television series and films of the 20th century. He co-founded the Stuntmen's Association of Motion Pictures in 1961. Although officially retired, he spent most of his time improving safety procedures in film. He is widely regarded as one of the pioneers in the creation of modern stuntmen. Amazingly, he was not seriously injured or even broken a bone during stunts. Rolex, a victim of Alzheimer's disease complications, died in 2017.

It's not surprising that Steve McQueen was ingenious and determined, so it's no surprise that he would request such a man to be his stunt double throughout his career. McQueen was known for giving watches to colleagues and friends who did well. Janes would then be the recipient.

While other watches have been seen in public, including Rolex GMT Master Vintages as well, none of them come with such personalization. The present watch, a reference 5513 from 1964, is actually the oldest McQueen-owned GMT Master Vintage. It was gifted to Rolex in the mid to late 1970s, according to the Janes family.

It is the only Steve McQueen watch that has his name engraved on its caseback, elevating it to the top of the elite collection watches. This watch will always be associated with its famous former owner. It is also unique in that it has a personal engraving and a passionate dedication to Janes.
