PHILLIPS x NOBLE & GRAFF
Mr. Jack Nicklaus & the Noble & Graff Golden Bear Sculpture
With the record of 18 career Major Championship, 73 PGA tour and 113 professional tournament victories, legendary Mr. Jack Nicklaus reigns over the kingdom of golf with nothing but passion and compassion.
The maestro and philanthropist has parted with his much beloved Rolex Day-Date reference 1803 in charitable support for his foundation for children via Phillips Auctions. Since his reception of the gift in 1967,
never a day has the storied timepiece left his side. For this memorabilia which marks his historic career, Noble & Graff has sculpted a watch case synonymous with his excellence — ‘Golden Bear’,
coined after the endearing nickname he acquired from his alma mater.
It takes the contour of a majestic bear, and is coated in 24-karat gold with high-quality specularity — a one-and-only for the one-and-only.
