The Rolex Tiger Woods Wore Was Almost As Impressive As His Big Comeback

After a decade of shaky performances and a well-documented difficult personal life, Tiger Woods conquered the Masters. The GOAT is back on the green. And just as impressive as the final round comeback was the wristwear involved: a Rolex Deepsea D-Blue.

In Augusta, Georgia, the 43-year-old continued what's been a long partnership with the world's biggest watch brand, and chose something of a cult classic to pick up the win. While both the Submariner and Daytona are some of the most popular choices within the golf world, the Deepsea D-Blue is less obvious: a supersized dive watch that counters any potential bombast with relatively muted features. That means a midnight blue dial, with simple luminescent hour markers and hands.

Of course, like most big ticket dive watches, we doubt Tiger Woods' D-Blue has ever left dry land. A good thing for its retained value, and even better for the American professional's podium look.

Clinching your own will probably be about as difficult as winning a fifth green jacket, though. With a minute production run, you'll struggle to find a limited number on the re-sale market for around £10,000. Yeah, good luck with that.
