“From April 1967, I wore that watch for 50 years. It was just a part of me.”
In advance of our upcoming Game Changers watch auction in New York, Jack Nicklaus shares the story of the first watch he ever owned, which he fortuitously received the same year he won his second U.S. Open and set the U.S. Open scoring record.
All proceeds from the sale of Nicklaus’ prized Rolex Day-Date will directly benefit the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.
