Arguably the hottest young star in Hollywood today because of his dual success with acting and producing, Ashton Kutcher wears a Rolex watch both on and off the set. In his recent commercial for Nikon, Ashton takes pictures at a wedding with a classic white dial Rolex Milgauss on his wrist. When Jonathan Ross interviewed him last year on a London talk show, Ashton Kutcher also wore the white dial Rolex Milgauss. Did Ashton keep the watch for himself after the commercial shoot or was this an extension of his contract? Since stars rarely do television interviews about commercials or in connection with commercial promotions, clearly his passion for the Rolex Milgauss carried over into his regular life. Beyond the television appearance, Ashton Kutcher has been photographed on several occasions, alongside his beautiful wife Demi Moore, wearing what appears to be a stainless steel Rolex Explorer with the classic black dial.Â Pondering the timepiece selection, it makes perfect sense that Ashton Kutcher would choose a Rolex Explorer as his everyday watch, following in the footsteps of Brad Pitt and Matt Damon. The Rolex Explorer conveys the essence of the adventure and serendipity that has come to define the impressive career of the young star.
In 1997, Ashton Kutcher was a biochemical engineering student at the University of Iowa, working at General Mills sweeping Cheerio dust from the floor in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for $12 an hour. Ashton Kutcher grew up in rural Homestead, Iowa, graduating from Clear Creek-Amana High School in the middle of what is known as the heartland of America. While working at the factory, Kutcher entered the Fresh Faces of Iowa modeling contest and won a trip to New York City to pursue a contract with model agencies in 1997. After a brief turn strutting for Calvin Klein, Kutcher landed his breakthrough role as airhead Michael Kelso in That ’70s Show. He actually wore a tie to work on the set of the television series That ’70’s show. As he explained to In Style, “It’s a way to keep things in perspective. Acting can be so much fun that it’s easy to forget that what you’re doing is a job. But if I’ve got my tie on, I’m going to work.” Leveraging his good looks and goofball appeal, Ashton Kutcher created Punk’d, the MTV hidden-camera show in which he played pranks on fellow celebrities. Some wondered if he was “punking” them when he began dating sexy puma actress Demi Moore, 15 years his senior, but the couple expressed their lasting commitment when they married in 2005. Demi Moore’s children from her previous marriage to Bruce Willis call Kutcher MOD, short for “my other dad.” As for his vibrant career, Ashton stars in feature films, produces sitcoms and reality shows on network television, and twitters away about his life to his sea of loyal fans. Although the Rolex Milgauss is an incredible professional timepiece, it fits Ashton better on the set than in real life. Off the set, without question, the Rolex Explorer is the luxury watch that best represents the exciting achievements of his young career.
