Rolex Watches Worn By Roger Federer
With the Wimbledon Championship beginning on 2nd July this summer and our favourite tennis players getting ready for their next challenge, we’re being reminded of the legendary characters that will take to the court. Displaying exceptional precision and speed, Swiss born Roger Federer is one of the world’s most successful tennis players, and he’s also a famous Rolex watch ambassador, showcasing the luxury watch brand with every serve.
Today at Miltons Diamonds we’re taking a closer look at the Rolex watches worn by Wimbledon champion Roger Federer and showing how you could copy his look with your very own Rolex model from our men’s watches department.
Rolex Sky Dweller
The first timepiece we’re focusing on is the highly popular Rolex Sky Dweller. Tennis champion Roger Federer has been photographed wearing the latest 2017 design of the Rolex Sky-Dweller which displays a stunning blue dial set in steel and white gold. A complex watch design with a combination of dual-time zone features and an annual calendar makes the Rolex Sky Dweller a perfectly multi-functional watch for the Australian Open winner.
The remodel of the Rolex Sky Dweller as sported by Federer is a colourful contrast to the classic 2012 design with the range of dial colours in black, white and popular blue. It also displays the baton hour markers rather than Roman or Arabic numerals for an alternate finish. No matter the impressive multifunctional features, it’s 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.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust II
As an official Rolex partner, Roger Federer’s watches perfectly reflect the athletes stamina and sophistication, on and off the tennis court. His Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust II incorporates the brand’s high performance and carefully mastered designs for an extremely wearable watch. He wore the sleek Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust II in 2009 after winning against Roddick at Wimbledon, a model which no doubt has a special place in his heart.
Our range of Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches for men features some sophisticated options for those looking to take inspiration from the envious Rolex watch collection of Roger Federer. The archetype of modernism which still manages to represent all of the classic elements of a Rolex watch, this model is perfect for the modern man.
Rolex GMT-Master II
Rolex GMT-Master II nicknamed the “Batman” due to the black and blue Cerachrom (ceramic) bezel, this is a watch that Roger Federer wore for his win at the Australian Open in 2017. Pictured kissing his trophy with the Rolex GMT-Master proudly displayed on his wrist, this is yet another multi-functional watch that allows the display of two time zones – a convenient function for a frequent flyer such as Federer.
Strategically designed in association with the 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, as styled by Roger Federer, 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.
The iconic Rolex Day-Date 40mm is another favourite timepiece of Roger Federer and is a distinctive design due to its accolade of being the first watch to display in full the days of the week 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.
The final watch favoured by this tennis champion was originally released in 1946; the Rolex Datejust model is a stylish watch with stainless steel and yellow gold perfectly complementing a slate grey dial and Roman numerals. The larger case design also offers an automatic 3235 movement which delivers a 70 hour power reserve, meaning it’s ideal for those who may not wear the watch every single day. Roger Federer opted to wear the Rolex Datejust 41mm during his presentation for winning his record eighth Wimbledon title in 2017.
