January 18th, Nobel Peace Price Martin Luther King’s Day

(Nobel Peace Price Martin Luther King)

At the White House Rose Garden on November 2, 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill creating a federal holiday to honour King. Observed for the first time on January 20, 1986, it is called Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Following President George H. W. Bush’s 1992 proclamation, the holiday is observed on the third Monday of January each year, near the time of King’s birthday. On January 17, 2000, for the first time, Martin Luther King Jr. Day was officially observed in all fifty U.S. states

Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American clergyman, activist and prominent leader in the African-American civil rights movement. His main legacy was to secure progress on civil rights in the United States, and he has become a human rights icon: King is recognized as a martyr by two Christian churches. A Baptist minister, King became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957, serving as its first president. King’s efforts led to the 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. There, he raised public consciousness of the civil rights movement and established himself as one of the greatest orators in U.S. history.

(Martin Luther King’s Rolex Datejust)

In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means. By the time of his death in 1968, he had refocused his efforts on ending poverty and opposing the Vietnam War, both from a religious perspective. King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. He was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977 and Congressional Gold Medal in 2004; Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a U.S. national holiday in 1986.

King’s main legacy was to secure progress on civil rights in the United States, which has enabled more Americans to reach their potential. He is frequently referenced as a human rights icon today. His name and legacy have often been invoked since his death as people have debated his likely position on various modern political issues.

Rolex is the wristwatch company chosen by not only celebrities but also communist revolutionist s or idealist politicians, like Martin Luther King, or most of the Presidents from United States of America, who weren’t able to resist to Hans Wildors creations.

Why is the Rolex Day Date or Rolex President so wanted?

The exquisitely brilliant Rolex Day-Date belongs to the Oyster Perpetual collection of the Rolex line. This perfect wristwatch is well known for being as perfect as it looks, not only for its aesthetic but also for the way it workds.

Hans Eberhard Wilhelm Wilsdorf was born in Kulmbach, a tiny village 50 kilometres from Nuremberg in Bavaria in March 22, 1881. He came from a family of ironmongers, a business initially founded by his grandfather Carl Traugger Wilsdorf in 1842. After working in Geneva for Cuno Korten, the watch making company, he moved to London in 1903. Two years later, he was able to start his own watch business. When seeking for a partner, he met through his lawyer Alfred James Davis. The relationship was further strengthened when Davis married Wilsdorf’s younger sister.

So, according to the way in which, just by naming the wristwatch makers, for us, their consumers, it evokes to a feeling of trust, its only a way of contribuiting to the company for their magnifiscent effort on the part of the company to deliver nothing but the best to its patrons. Every Rolex watch although exclusive in its character and beauty yet has a commonality threading it all along and that is its engineering finesse.

With a streamlining shape and the finishing reflects the precision that has gone into making this timeless piece,  this watch is meant to epitomize time. Sparkling diamonds have been encrusted in the watch making it a visual treat with the flagship feature being the weekday display which can be preset in 26 distinct dialects.

The watch can be taken to a depth of 330 feet and will still emerge unscathed by its effect. This is one model that is also preferred by divers wanting to keep a check on time while going beneath waters. The watch symbolizes style, a virtue exemplified by Carmen Electra.

Madoff auction welcomes bids on wristwatches like: Rolex, Ulysse Nardin, Blancpain, Piaget, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, IWC and Jaeger LeCoultre.

(Bernard Lawrence “Bernie” Madoff)

.
.
.

Bernard Lawrence “Bernie” Madoff was born on April 29, 1938. He is the former Chairman of the NASDAQ stock exchange and the admitted operator of the Ponzi scheme that might be “the largest investment fraud in Wall Street history”.
In March 2009, Madoff pleaded guilty to 11 felonies and admitted to turning his wealth management business into a massive Ponzi scheme that defrauded thousands of investors of billions of dollars. Madoff said he began the Ponzi scheme in the early 1990s. However, federal investigators believe the fraud began as early as the 1980s. The amount missing from client accounts, including fabricated gains, was almost $65 billion. The court appointed trustee estimated actual losses to investors of $18 billion. On June 29, 2009, he was sentenced to 150 years in prison, the maximum allowed.
Madoff founded the Wall Street firm Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC in 1960, and was its chairman until his arrest on December 11, 2008. The firm was one of the top market maker businesses on Wall Street, which bypassed “specialist” firms by directly executing orders over the counter from retail brokers.
On December 10, 2008, Madoff’s sons told authorities that their father had just confessed to them that the asset management arm of his firm was a massive Ponzi scheme, and quoting him as saying it was “one big lie”. The following day, FBI agents arrested Madoff and charged him with one count of securities fraud. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had previously conducted several investigations into Madoff’s business practices since 1992, which critics contend were incompetently handled.

20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall: French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Rolex.

The Berlin Wall was breached after the East German government moves to lift restrictions on travel across the border to West Germany in November 9th, 1989. It was erected in august 3rd, 1961.
Communist East Germany erected the 155-km (96-mile) concrete wall in 1961 to encircle West Berlin and prevent citizens from fleeing into the capitalist enclave. More than 100 people are believed to have been killed at the Wall while trying to escape.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy posted on Facebook a picture of himself at the Berlin Wall.
The image shows Mr Sarkozy, then a 34-year-old French MP, standing before a graffiti-covered section of the wall back in 9 November 1989. Mr Sarkozy will today join world leaders in Berlin to mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Wall.
Nicolas Sarközy de Nagy-Bocsa was born on 28 January 1955. He is the 23rd President of the French Republic. He assumed the office on 16 May 2007 after defeating Socialist Party candidate Ségolène Royal 10 days earlier.

Nicolas Sarkozy is a true Rolex collector, with a particular appreciation for the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, which was made famous by the late American acting icon Paul Newman. He has been pictured many times wearing the classic white faced Daytona, but he seems to prefer the rarer black faced Daytona. The Rolex Cosmograph Daytona is easily recognized for its stainless steel case and an oysterlock bracelet. Rolex Cosmograph features an intricately fashioned dial, whether white or black, and a synthetic sapphire case. It is also water resistant to 100 meters. [Full article]
