Marlon Brando brought his Rolex GMT-Master to the set of Apocalypse Now in the Philippines and, despite being told to remove it, kept it on during filming. He did, however, take out the bezel after concerns were raised that it would be too distracting. After filming wrapped, the watch was never seen again… until now.
It had remained in Brando’s possession but in 1995, he gifted it to his daughter, Petra, for her graduation from Brown University. Petra gave the watch to her husband, Russel Fischer, on their wedding day in 2003.
