Greg Norman: Hodinkee Talking Watches

...Rolex Coolness...

Greg Norman

Hodinkee Talking Watches

Hodinkee just posted a superb interview with Greg Norman where he talks about his love of watches and shows off some cool watches from his collection. There are a few interesting tidbits in this story. One is that Greg Norman was a Rolex brand ambassador in the past. The other interesting thing is that Greg is wearing a Panerai on his wrist, but they don't talk about it which seems strange to me.

Below are some photos of Greg Norman wearing Rolex watches back in the 1980s and 1990s. These photos are from my story on The Open. Greg Norman won The Open in 1986 and 1993. In 1993 Greg Norman set the record for the lowest score over 72 holes at The Open, winning in only 267 strokes. In the first photo below we see Greg Norman wearing his yellow gold Rolex Submariner.

In the photo below we see Greg Norman sporting his yellow gold Rolex Daytona.

In the photo below we see Greg Norman with Jack Nicklaus, and both are wearing yellow-gold Rolex models. Greg Norman is wearing a yellow gold Rolex Daytona, and Jack Nicklaus is wearing a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date.
