I love golf. I love that its traditions are built on etiquette and sportsmanship, and the fact that through the decades, golfers (pros and amateurs, alike) would actually dress up to go play a round. And while I don’t play much golf – my handicap is in military time vs. standard time – I had a stint working for the Arnold Palmer Company, and there’s a beautiful Arnold Palmer pictorial book from the mid-’90s in my office. He’s one of the most stylish men in history, golfer or not.
About a year or so ago, we started dressing a friend and customer of ours on the PGA Tour, Keith Mitchell. When he came to us about wardrobing, he said Arnold Palmer circa late-’60s and early-’70s was his north star, style-wise – how could we refuse?
By the way, Mr. Palmer was actually the golfer who really brought perfect UK super clone watches endorsements into the norm for players after he signed on with Rolex in 1967. Fast-forward to the modern era, and famous pro golfers (Jordan, Rory, Tiger) are synonymous with watch partnerships.
With the Masters upon us, we thought it would be fun to roll up a list of stylish golfers and the best replica watches they wore – and unpack the reasons they looked so great, in hopes of helping you do likewise.
Arnie’s, Jack’s & Gary’s Rolex Gold Rolex Day-Date Super Clone Watches
Golf’s “big three” – Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus –all had partnerships with Swiss movements super clone Rolex watches. But it was Palmer who really took sports marketing to the next level as the first golfer to partner with them in 1967. Palmer was always stylish: The trailblazing muscle man known for Arnie’s Army, popularizing golf on TV and flying his own plane between tournaments. Meanwhile, South African Gary Player was one of the first to embrace the monochromatic look – they called him the Black Knight – and was arguably golf’s greatest global ambassador as the first international player to win the Masters. And then Jack Nicklaus – the Golden Bear – perhaps the greatest player of them all, had his own stylish (and winning) moments: Argyle at the British in ’78, checkered pants and yellow polo at the Masters in ’86. All three of these players coincidentally favored the same watch: Gold top fake Rolex Day-Date watches, which (as you’ll see from this list) has become the pro tour’s horological benchmark.
Keith Mitchell’s Cartier Tank Replica Watches
Not unlike Payne Stewart, it takes a guy with a certain confidence to do something totally different from everyone else in the sport. And few golfers go from wearing head-to-toe synthetic performance wear to wearing wool dress trousers, cashmere sweaters, and pique polos. But that’s our guy, Keith Mitchell. And just for the record, he came to us with the idea to collaborate on attire, not the other way around. (We were known for suits; we weren’t exactly soliciting sports partnerships.) So given his penchant for classics, it’s fitting that he sports 1:1 wholesale super clone Cartier Tank watches. Even cooler, he and his new bride gave each other Tanks as wedding gifts, with initials and wedding date engraved on the back. When I asked him about it, he said “I love it because it’s been in style for over 100 years, yet is completely different from today’s modern sports AAA online copy watches.” Hard to argue with that.
Adam Scott’s Pink Gold Super Clone Rolex Day-Date Watches
Australian Adam Scott is no stranger to HODINKEE readers (or listeners, as he’s also appeared on HODINKEE Radio) but when we asked Keith Mitchell who he thought was the most stylish 2022 super clone watches guy on tour, Adam topped the list. Makes sense. Once the face of Burberry, he’s been the only golfer to wear Uniqlo for nearly a decade, and has been a Rolex ambassador for his entire career. He’s got a looonnnnggggg list of luxury Rolex replica watches that he’s collected, but the first one he ever got, when he became an ambassador at 20, was (what else?) a Day-Date. His, though, is pink gold with a black dial. Whoa. I love that he went there … and if there is one guy who could pull it off, it’s him.
