    Auction for Jack Nicklausís DD Rolex

    Let’s hope this raises plenty from such a great man and wonderful family whom we as our own family got to know in the mid 60s. They are as kind as they appear off screen.

    Great gesture. His is a particularly iconic watch - never without it. Iím sure it will raise a good sum and for a great cause.

    He seems a genuinely good man, so itís nice to hear you confirming that is the case.

    Top golfer and a great cause.

    The strap looks a bit tired - a problem with the "links"?

    Be nice if a wealthy American bought it and returned it to him.

    His talking watches (Hodinkee) was one of my favourites, and shows what a legend he is for parting with that particular watch for such a worthy cause. Lets hope it does well!

    By a country mile the most iconic watch in golf, and there are plenty of very rich golf players and enthusiasts that will be interested. It could go for crazy money. Let's hope so.

    I remember him talking about this in his talking watches episode. Here's hoping it goes for a ridiculous amount of money.

    Is that the one he wore in "The Shining" ?

    Think this will go for way over the estimate. Probably be bought by a major gold equipment company or a wealthy fan. Worst case scenario is Trump buys it.

    Amazes me he can sell it after wearing it for 50 years! It must feel like a good friend with so many memories attached to it.

    He started wearing it 10 years before I was born, and I feel old!
