Phillips, in association with Bacs & Russo, is hosting the upcoming Game Changers auction. The sale will offer watches owned by Marlon Brando, Robert Downey Jr, and Jack Nicklaus. Also available are vintage examples of Rolex, Patek Philippe, and LeCoultre timepieces.
Jack Nicklaus won 18 golf championships in his sporting career. He wore his yellow gold Rolex Day-Date watch almost every day since he received it from the brand in 1966; it comes to auction in this sale. Marlon Brando’s long lost Rolex GMT-Master, worn during the filming of Apocalypse Now, is also among the leading lots. Manufactured in 1972, the watch has a black strap and a hand-engraved etching of the actor’s name on the case-back. Also leading the auction are two vintage Patek Philippe perpetual calendar wristwatches, offered publicly for the first time. Another highlight is an Urwerk automatic mechanical control watch that combines an atomic clock with a titanium wristwatch. To find more important timepieces and to register to bid online, visit Phillips.
