As the story goes, a Thunderbirds pilot owned a Rolex Datejust Turn-O-Graph watch, which caught the attention of the squadron thanks to the practical timing bezel. As a result, the squadron put in an official request to Rolex in the late 1950s to supply the Thunderbirds with watches. So Rolex capitalized on this relationship on began marketing the Turn-O-Graph as the Rolex Thunderbird in the American market. There was even a special-edition full 18k gold version with the Thunderbird insignia on the dial, as seen in this vintage Rolex ad. From this point forward, the Datejust Turn-O-Graph picked up the Rolex Thunderbird nickname.
