Today's offering showcases this large-and-in-charge mens Invicta Bolt chronograh that was owned and worn by the late Burt Reynolds.
After starring in TV shows such as Gunsmoke and Dan August, Mr. Reynolds rose to fame in the ‘70s for his breakout role as Lewis Medlock in Deliverance. The actor, who has nearly 200 film and TV credits, also starred in multiple successful films including 1974’s The Longest Yard, 1977’s Smokey and the Bandit, 1981's Cannonball Run, and 1997’s Boogie Nights, the latter of which earned him an Oscar nomination.
Mr. Reynolds was voted the world's number one box office star for five consecutive years (from 1978 to 1982) in the annual Top Ten Money Making Stars Poll, a record he shares with Bing Crosby.
The very masculine chronograph, which has a beefy 48mm in diameter, is a fitting size for it's larger-than-life original owner.
Here is how Invicta describes the Bolt: With sharpness in attitude and ability, the Invicta Bolt is a mastermind of dominance. Perfectly synchronized movements, complex casing engineering and signature rope jewelry design fastened around the bezel make a lasting impression. Variations in materials and finishes provide a range of options to suit any taste. The Invicta Bolt, an uncompromised statement in accomplished timekeeping where power becomes harmonized motion.
Although we normally aren't dealers in the brand, we like its look and the watch's all-black motif seem perfectly fitting for a watch from Burt Reynolds.
It is in excellent condition and has been left just as we acquired it, dirt and all. Note that its original silicone band has a noticeable though not overpowering smell of cologne.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function and a Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity and Provenance.
Our new Connoisseur of Time Celebrity and Historical Events Collection:
I am very pleased to launch with this watch our new Celebrity and Historical Events Collection, which will be composed of watches owned by celebrities or that were given to commemorate an important historical event.
This watch is the very first in our new collection and will be followed by watches (and perhaps clocks) from Elvis Presley, Jerry Lewis, Bob Hope, others from Burt Reynolds, and King Edward VIII and the Duchess of Windsor. I am actively seeking out watches owned by public figures and hope to soon be able to offer others from Olivia-Newton John, Mae West, Lucille Ball, and Marilyn Monroe.
Also coming soon is a watch given a handful of years after the Civil War concluded by the Vice President Elect to honor an Army commander who went on to receive the Medal of Honor. This will be an exciting new collection you won't want to miss!
