Everyone knows Ellen DeGeneres – the mononymously famous Ellen (yes, that is a real word, we didn\’t make it up) is one of the best known and best liked people not just on TV, but in show business in general, and like many of you, we remember her turn as an Academy Awards host with a lot of pleasure. Not that that\’s setting the bar very high for success, but, you know, still.
Anyway, she recently interviewed President Barack Obama for a segment of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, and wouldn\’t you know it, on her wrist was a pretty great watch: a Rolex Daytona, reference 6265, in gold, looking to be from the 1970s. The above shot was taken during a commercial break and both parties look like they\’re enjoying themselves quite a bit. Ellen is rumored to have a pretty major interest in watches in general and collectible vintage Rolexes in particular. It\’s an interest she\’s kept out of the spotlight by and large, but you can only be so under the radar when you\’re sporting a gold Daytona. We gotta say, she wears it well.
