    Given the nature of show business, there are a lot of wardrobe discussions behind the scenes at CNBC’s entrepreneurial reality hit, Shark Tank—everything must be in its right place, right down to who is wearing what watch. With a variety of panelists helming the show, the new guest Sharks, ever-changing set design, and attire - all can vary drastically from one episode to the next. Television mainstay Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary is an exception to the rule. He always wears the same uniform: black tie, white shirt, and dark suit with deftly coordinated tie pin, custom designed skull cufflinks, and the singular red Rubber B© watch strap.

    He always wears the same uniform: black tie, white shirt, and dark suit with deftly coordinated tie pin, custom designed skull cufflinks, and the singular red Rubber B© watch strap.

    For Season 12 of Shark Tank, the business magnate was tasked with selecting eight wristwatches to put in rotation and, without reluctance, his first pick was the classic Rolex Cosmograph Daytona with white dial and ceramic bezel, and his signature red watch band.

    This Rolex Daytona is a perennial favorite of the Shark Tank wardrobe team in no small part due to its camera appeal. The present watch, a reference 116500LN, was released to great expectations in 2016 and thrilled watch enthusiasts. It was the first stainless steel Daytona model featuring a Cerachrom bezel and became an instant success. Today, it still remains incredibly difficult to obtain due to the model's enormous demand thanks to its superb aesthetics and icon status.

    Generously donated by the Canadian entrepreneur and television personality, Mr. Wonderful’s Rolex Daytona with his signature Shark Tank red band is being sold to support the missions of One Drop and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.

     

     

  • The objectives supported by TIME COUNTS

     

    Tackling global water issues and improving the living conditions of some of the most vulnerable populations around the world.

    In the wake of COVID-19, there’s never been more pressure on the global community to address water issues. Handwashing being one of the most important behaviors to decrease the propagation of all kinds of viruses, it goes without saying that safe water needs to be accessible. Unfortunately, over 2.2 billion people lack access to safe water at home.  

     

    All net proceeds from the TIME COUNTS charitable initiative will go to improving the living conditions of the most vulnerable populations around the world by providing sustainable access to safe water and encouraging the adoption of healthy hygiene behaviors.  


    TIME COUNTS will also enable One Drop and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation to fund a large-scale program resulting from a joint call for proposals launched earlier this year by both foundations. Applicant organizations have submitted projects to improve resilience and ensure sustainable and equitable access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services for communities in need, with particular emphasis placed on issues affecting extremely poor and marginalized populations. The final selection will be announced in early 2021.  


    Together, let’s make the world a more sustainable place for all.


    Phillips will remit to One Drop and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation the next proceeds from the Buyer’s premium.

  • The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation

     

    Inspired by his own observations and in the light of the alarming scientific evidence, H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco made a personal commitment by launching, in 2006, his Foundation to act against the environmental dangers threatening our planet and making populations vulnerable. The Foundation focuses its efforts on three principal domains of action: climate change, biodiversity and water resources, and funds initiatives in the fields of research and studies, technological innovation and socially aware practices. In order to take action for the protection of nature, the Foundation supports projects in three main geographical regions: the Mediterranean Basin, the Polar Regions and the Least Developed Countries.

    • Artist Biography

      Rolex

      Swiss • 1905

      Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

      One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.
