The Rolex Watches of MSNBC’s Brian Williams

Rolex Daytona Chronograph White Dial Steel Mens Watch 116520

As MSNBC’s chief anchor, and host of its nightly wrap-up program The 11th Hour, Brian Williams has the tough task of delivering breaking news and the day’s most pressing issues. With his cool and calm demeanor, and gift for live interviews, Williams and his top-rating cable show have earned the respect of critics and viewers alike.

His time slot is now the hottest hour in cable news; and Williams is always dressed for it. With sharp suits, crisp ties, and some iconic timepieces, Williams shows that he means serious business. Check out the choice timepieces of Brian Williams.


Rolex Submariner No Date 40mm 2 Liner Steel Mens Watch 14060


Rolex Submariner Non-Date

Williams wears the Non-Date version of the iconic dive watch, the Rolex Submariner. This model is instantly recognizable for its black aluminum 60-minute bezel and black dial, and while it does away with the iconic date aperture, the dial has an appealing and symmetrical design. In fact, collectors seek the Non-Date version for its time-only function, which is similar to earlier models of the Submariner.




Rolex GMT Master II Black Red Coke Bezel Steel Mens Watch 16710


Rolex GMT Master II Coke

Williams is almost exclusively seen in suits; but he takes every opportunity to add pops of color through his accessories. At times, Williams adds the striking presence of the Rolex GMT Master II Coke to his ensemble. The timepiece uses a bi-colored black and red bezel to distinguish between day and night hours.

This particular model (ref 16710) was introduced in 1989; and came with a more refined and thinner case. With its sleeker fit on the wrist, it wears very well under the cuff.




Rolex Daytona Chronograph Black Dial Steel Mens Watch 116520


Rolex Cosmograph Daytona

Williams also has both black and white dial versions of the stainless steel Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. Well loved for its versatile and ruggedly handsome steel-on-steel construction, it looks right at home whether it’s on the race track or the newsroom.

The ref 116520 featured here is a vital piece of Rolex history, having been the first Daytona to run on a completely in-house movement, the Caliber 4130. This movement is celebrated for being reliable, anti-magnetic and incredibly smooth — perfect for the motorsport icon.




Rolex Datejust Steel White Gold Silver Dial Vintage Mens Watch 1601


Rolex Datejust Jubilee

While Williams is partial to sport watches, he made room for an iconic dress watch – the Rolex Datejust with a five-piece Jubilee bracelet. He wears a vintage model with a silver Pie Pan dial and a timeless all-steel design, which is as relevant today as it was when it debuted decades ago.

The Rolex Datejust is recognized as the archetype of the modern watch, and is appropriate to wear in almost any setting – from casual weekends to business meetings. No wonder it has become a staple in many watch boxes.
