Michael Jordan’s Gold Gift Watch Will Be Auctioned at Sotheby’s

After the Chicago Bulls won the 1997-98 NBA championship, their sixth title in eight years, Michael Jordan gave assistant coach Tex Winter a gold Patek Philippe wristwatch with the engraving, “Thanks, MJ.”

The elegant timepiece is expected to fetch up to $12,000 tomorrow when it’s auctioned by Winter’s family at Sotheby’s in New York as part of the Important Watches and Clocks sale. Winter, 88, suffered a stroke last year.
