Roger Federer’s Rolex Collection: Our Top 5
With the next Wimbledon Championship due to begin in June 2022, it’s no secret that our favourite tennis players will already be preparing to take on their next challenge, and may even be starting to plan their wardrobes. Roger Federer is considered to be one of the greatest tennis players of all time, holding 20 grand slam titles as well as 103 ATP titles. Born in Switzerland, he became a Rolex watch ambassador way back in 2006 and has amassed a world-class collection ever since then. Showcasing the luxury watch brand with each and every serve, Federer has showcased a huge array of Rolex watches over the years, from classic styles to new and exciting designs.
Here at Miltons Diamonds, we are extremely passionate about Rolex watches, which is why we’re taking a closer look at the top designs frequently worn by Wimbledon champion Roger Federer, and showing you exactly how you can best copy his look by choosing your very own Rolex model from our men’s second-hand watches department.
What Rolex Does Roger Federer Wear?
1. Rolex Sky-Dweller
The first timepiece we’re focusing on is the highly popular 2017 design of the Rolex Sky-Dweller, a complex watch design that displays a stunning blue dial set in steel and white gold. A perfectly multi-functional watch for the Australian Open winner, Roger Federer has been photographed wearing this premium design, making it a popular choice for many buyers. A complex watch design with a combination of dual-time zone features along with a handy annual calendar, all of the Sky-Dweller’s functions can be easily activated by the crown and command ring bezel.
The remodel of the Rolex Sky-Dweller as sported by Federer is a colourful contrast to the classic 2012 design with a range of materials and dial colours. It also displays baton hour markers rather than Roman numerals for a more alternative finish. No matter the impressive multifunctional features, its appearance doesn’t overwhelm or look untidy upon presentation but instead reflects the best possible performance and aesthetic that has seen it in very high demand.
2. Rolex Datejust II
As he is an official Rolex partner, Roger Federer’s watches perfectly reflect his stamina and sophistication on and off the tennis court. After winning the Wimbledon title against Roddick in 2009, he wore the sleek Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust II watch which is sure to hold a special place in his heart. Incorporating the high performance of the brand as well as its expertly mastered designs, this model of Rolex watch is extremely wearable as it is understated, scratch-resistant and features innovative shock absorbers, making it perfect for the modern man.

3. Rolex GMT Master II “Batman”
The suave Rolex GMT-Master II is nicknamed the “Batman” due to its black and blue Cerachrom (ceramic) bezel, with its multifunctional design allowing for the display of two different time zones. Worn by Roger Federer for his win at the Australian Open in 2017, he was pictured kissing his trophy with the Rolex GMT-Master proudly displayed on his wrist.
Strategically designed in association with Pan American Airways for specific use by their pilots and navigators, the original Rolex GMT-Master watch was launched in 1954. The more recent model is still perfect for those who travel regularly due to the separate hand on the dial that shows a second-time zone, with the date synchronised with the local time display for an accurate reading at all times.
4. Rolex Daytona
Another Rolex watch that features in Roger Federer’s growing collection is the Rolex Daytona. Photographed wearing the sophisticated timepiece to a press conference in 2011, Federer’s Daytona watch was created in his birth year (1981) and was gifted to him for his 30th birthday by his wife, Mirka. With a classic, clean dial with black and white contrast and simple straight hands, it features an external tachymeter and screw-down pushers which were introduced in the sixties. These stunning features make for a high-end aesthetic that is guaranteed to look exquisite when paired with smart and casual attire. Browse our extensive collection of second-hand gents Rolex Daytona watches, which includes an excellent array of colours and designs for you to choose from.
5. Rolex Day-Date
The iconic Rolex Day-Date 40mm is another favourite timepiece of Roger Federer and offers a distinctive design due to its accolade of being the first watch to display the days of the week in full on the dial. The Rolex Day-Date 40mm worn by Roger Federer is from the Baselworld 2015 release and is a refreshed take on the classic 1965 Day-Date design. An impeccable Everose Gold watch showcasing a beautiful chocolate dial set with baguette-cut diamonds undoubtedly sets this Rolex watch apart from others in Federer’s Rolex watch collection. For a luxury watch that exudes carefully created style and carries a unique look, the Rolex Day-Date watch is an excellent option for anyone seeking a historically impressive watch design to add to their collection.
