About The Famous Tennis Stars And Their Watches

Sports and luxury watch brands have such a long history together that watch sponsorship is essentially a sport in itself. With the most watched wrists in the world, there has always been a connection with Tennis players and their watches. Next we are going to review these famous tennis stars and their watches.

Roger Federer

Watch:  Rolex GMT-Master II

With the 2017 Australian Open Final win, Roger Federer reaches 18 major titles, four more than Nadal, cementing his place as the all-time great. To make the occasion even more special, the final was Federer’s 100th match in Melbourne. Emotions were high and Federer was in tears after collecting his trophy. Roger Federer has been a long-time ambassador of Rolex and the Swiss luxury brand was promoting the GMT-Master II heavily at the Australian Open. From the picture above, you can see the best GMT sport watches- a Rolex GMT-Master II BLNR (bleu/noir), is on the wrist of the best man- Roger Federer.

Serena Williams

Watch:  Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph

Serena Williams became an Audemars Piguet ambassador in 2014. That is an replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph. A rose gold one. And it is the watch of choice for Serena Williams. According to several sources she even wears this when playing! This stunning watch was originally designed as a men’s chronograph for extreme sports. The Royal Oak Offshore is loved by watch enthusiasts due to its strong athletic character. The new 37 mm Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph for women seems to keep the bold design of the original men’s chronograph, but in a slimmer case. We think the white-coated crown, with matching white rubber strap and bezel set with 32 brilliant-cut diamonds gives the timepiece a beautiful feminine touch.

Stanislas Wawrinka

Watch: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore chronograph

Stan Wawrinka is sponsored by Audemars Piguet.  He shook the tennis world when he beat Novak Djokovic at the French Open in 2015. He is one of three players to have grand Slam wins against the “Big Four” players, including Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic.  Stan wears his Royal Oak Offshore while he plays even though it is a heavy watch. He even timed his French Open win with his chronograph.

You Need A Good Dive Watch

Dive watches are one of the staple watch styles that have been around since the 1950s. Dive watches can be an indispensable tool underwater, but they are also a symbol of the rugged explorer in all of us. Whether you’re just diving into a huge workload at your desk, or actually spending some time deep underwater, one thing is clear — a dive watch would be great to have on your wrist.

All divers’ watches share certain characteristics that make them divers’ watches: unidirectional rotating bezels, secure screw-down crowns, higher-than-typical water resistance. Some of these divers’ watches, however, go the extra mile with cases that can descend to 3,000 or even 4,000 meters, chronographs operable at incredible depths, or high-tech depth gauge devices built into their mechanical movements.

The purpose of a dive watch is to monitor how long you’ve been underwater, and more importantly – how much air you have left in your tank. Divers entrust their watches with their lives to be able to know precisely how much time they have underwater. For dive watches, reliable durability and construction are critical. Look for a dive watch with a well-built case, a strong crystal (mineral and sapphire are best), and a good strap or bracelet. A solid dive watch will last for decades if maintained.

Dive watches are often chunky and bold, in part for aesthetics, and in part for their need to withstand the extreme pressures with traveling well below the water’s surface. From a visual standpoint a dive watch is easy to spot. Its markers and hands are big, easy to read, and have some sort of luminous material applied to them. Dive watch remains one of the most popular timepiece categories.

The Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea has a water-resistance level of 3,900 meters (nearly 13,000 feet), and it is more than 10 percent slimmer than it otherwise would have been thanks to a special case construction developed by Rolex replica. It consists of three pressure-absorbing elements: a 5.5 mm thick sapphire crystal, a 3.28-mm-thick caseback made of grade 5 titanium, and an inner ring made of Biodur-108 steel. Last summer, Rolex launched the new Rolex Deepsea D-Blue Edition (pictured above), with a proprietary “D-Blue” dial that is dark blue at the top, and then darkens gradually to black at the bottom.
