Philips Jack Nicklaus Rolex Day-Date

The Golden Bear is selling his golden watch. Quite possibly one of the most important Rolexes in the company's history, the watch was originally gifted to Nicklaus by Rolex in 1967 and has been worn almost every day since he received it. It has also been on his wrist during every major professional tournament he's won in his storied career. The 18-karat yellow gold Day-Date (Ref. 1803) features a "pie-pan"-style dial and a "President" bracelet and as you can already tell, it is most definitely one of Nicklaus' most prized possessions. 

Philips will be putting the watch on sale on December 10th and all of the proceeds will go to benefit the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.
