With Every Major Win, Brooks Koepka Shows Us a New Shiny Rolex Watch
If you follow golf, you have no doubt watched Tiger Wood’s solid performance and Brooks Koepka’s big win at the PGA Championships recently. At 28-years-old, Brooks Koepka has won two back-to-back U.S. Open championships (2017, 2018) and now the 2018 PGA Championships. As an official Rolex ambassador, one of Brooks Koepka’s Rolex watches is worn each time he’s held each of his three major trophies. And, he’s donned some super cool Rolex timepieces each time. Let’s find out what they are.
Brooks Koepka’s Rolex at the 2017 US Open
When Brooks Koepka captured his first major title at the 2017 US Open at Erin Hills, Wisconsin, he was the envy of many while clutching onto his trophy. And we’re not just talking about the other pro golfers here but Rolex enthusiasts too! That’s because the champ had on the Rolex Daytona 116500LN.
As most of you already know, the 2016 launch of the Daytona ref. 116500LN caused mass excitement (hysteria?) in the luxury watch space. Crafted in stainless steel and topped with a black Cerachrom ceramic bezel, this was the modern-day Daytona many were impatiently waiting for. And judging by the very long waitlists at Rolex boutiques around the world, plenty are still waiting to get their hands on one.
Brooks Koepka’s Rolex at the 2018 US Open
At the 2018 US Open in Shinnecock Hills, New York, Brooks Koepka came out on top of the leaderboard yet again for a second consecutive win at the US Open to earn his second major title. As he proudly raised his trophy, Brooks Koepka had on his wrist yet another new Rolex sports watch. This time, he wore the Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600—which made its debut in 2017 to mark the 50th anniversary of the model.
The launch of the new Sea-Dweller dive watch was a polarizing one. Some loved the increased size to 43mm from 40mm and the addition of the Cyclops above the date window, while others contested it. The one detail most got on board with, however, was the addition of the red “SEA-DWELLER” text on the dial reminiscent of the style of the inaugural Sea-Dweller from 1967.
Brooks Koepka’s Rolex at the 2018 PGA Championship
Finally, we come to Brooks Koepka’s latest major win at the 2018 PGA Championship in St. Louis, Missouri. This was a particularly special event as it was the 100th anniversary of the PGA Championship. Perhaps that’s why Brooks Koepka had on a dressier Rolex watch during the trophy ceremony. Holding onto his Wanamaker Trophy, we couldn’t help but notice Brooks Koepka’s Rolex was an Everose Sky-Dweller 326935 gleaming from the golfer’s arm.
Although we were kind of hoping for the new GMT-Master II “Pepsi” to make an appearance, his Sky-Dweller crafted in warm 18k Everose gold with the dark rhodium dial featuring Rolex’s annual calendar complication is pretty impressive too.
Is another major title in Brooks Koepka’s future? If he keeps playing the way he does, it most certainly could happen many times over for the impressive and focused golfer. And we’ll be keeping an eye out to see which of Brooks Koepka’s Rolex watches will turn up next on his wrist.
