Sports Watches on Athletes and Celebrities. What kind of sports watch is your favorite athlete or celebrity wearing? Let’s check them out, shall we? We begin with golf icons Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus who each wore Rolex sports watches. Check out this 1990s Rolex ad featuring Arnold “The King” Palmer and Jack “The Golden Bear” Nicklaus.
