Tonight during the 89th Academy Awards show, Rolex ran a 60-second commercial celebrating some of the most notable films, actors, and the Rolexes they wore.

The film showed living actors such as Harrison Ford and Nick Nolte, as well as past legends such as Paul Newman, Dennis Hopper, Marlon Brando, and Bill Paxton.

As of 2017, Rolex officially supports the Academy Awards, even though as you can see, they have been a favorite of Oscar-winning celebrities for decades.
