    Not exactly 100% food related, but....

    Did anyone catch Emeril Live on Friday evening (the Vietnam Cuisine show)? If so - did you see his orange faced watch? Any idea what kind of watch it is?

    I bet if you sent an e-mail to food tv they would answer you. They are actually really cool about that. BTW I have seen him wearing a Rolex in the past.

    Dunno - could have been... although he had a black strap (rubberized or leather).

    I may just do that.

    It was not a Rolex. This had an unmistakenly orange face.

    I have some 'unofficial' confirmation that it is the 44mm version of this watch:

    Found the info in THIS THREAD.

    Edited to add a larger more detailed photo.

    If there was ever a person who deserves to wear a Rolex it would be Emeril!

    My son is in the food industry. During his training at Sullivan Institute in Louisville, KY. One of his professors who knows Emeril gave my son a letter of introduction for Emeril when he was in town taping some show. My son shows up at the event with the letter and tries to meet Emeril. The man was just plain rude, wadded up the letter and told my son to get lost. Just a plain asshat.

    Wow. I had a very different experience with him a few years ago. Was very nice. Maybe all the fame has changed him.

    Wow that really sucks! I have a deep understanding for what it takes to become as successful as Emeril has. For him to be anything but humbled would be irresponsible on his part . Although we can't say for sure what was on his mind at the time your son was to meet him, but that isn't the type of person that you are led to believe he is.

    Hopefully your son will have success and possibly in the future have the same opportunitys as E and remember what it was like, and respond in a more favorable fashion.

    I think Omega has a new watch out with an orange face. I don't know the name though

    omega does have a new watch out, however, it doesn't have an orange face, but it does have an orange strap, it's called the seamaster planet ocean.

    I'm thinking I'm not eating anything he personally prepares. I mean, the man is absolutely covered in coarse black hair and I have never seen him wearing a hat.
    I think the "BAM" came from the sound of his hairs hitting the floor after unfortunate diners spat them out.

    Seiko used to make a divers watch w/ a orange face. I do not see it currently listed but I'm sure you can find one on the net. It is their automatic divers watch currently offered w/ a black or yellow face.

    Emeril is just plain annoying as hell. His whimpering noises and "oh yeah babe's!" made me sick of him. "Up a notch" and "bam!" are so over worked as to make them irritating.
    Plus, where does he find the idiots to come to his tapings?
    I like garlic, but geez, all he has to do to get a huge ovation is put either too much garlic, too much wine, or too much fat in anything he is cooking.
    Sorry I cannot add to the info request on the watch, but I just had to vent a little on Emeril.
