Roger Federer is a legend when it comes to tennis, and he is and always will remain among the best players of all-time. He has been ranked in the top 10 players in the world since October 2002.
Federer has won over $97,000,000 in prize money throughout his career and he holds an awe-inspiring amount of records. He was ranked as the world number one for 302 weeks, 237 of which were consecutive. He has won 17 Grand Slam titles, and has reached each Grand Slam’s final at least five times – an all-time record. This record includes reaching Wimbledon’s final ten times.
Roger is the 2nd highest earning athlete in the world (trailing Tiger Woods) with 19 million pounds paid to him each year, which is reflected in the caliber of companies he partners with.
So what watch does Roger Federer wear?
Rolex has secured a long-standing relationship with Roger Federer, a contract worth around 10 million pounds a year.
In 2012, when Federer faced Andy Murray for the coveted Wimbledon title and his 17th Grand Slam title, Federer made sure to show off his Rolex Oyster Perpetual Platinum while triumphantly holding the cup above his head.
This particular Rolex, as the name suggests, has a platinum case and an Oyster bracelet. Its scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects the elegant ice blue dial, and the fixed bezel is chestnut brown and is Cerachrom with an engraved tachymeter. It features a self-winding, automatic chronograph calibre 4130 movement, masterfully hidden inside the 1.5” case.
Also in his collection is a Rolex Daytona 6263, a gift from his wife for his 30th birthday which was created in 1981 and difficult to find. It’s now said to be one of Federer’s most treasured possessions.
Federer also has a Rolex Datejust, which he wore at Wimbledon after winning the title and breaking the record for the most Grand Slams won in a career. It was his 15th.
According to an interview, Federer mentioned that there were many watches in his collection that he has in celebration of his victories.
Roger Federer has never ceased to amaze and proves consistently that he is still one of the best tennis players in the history of the game, and we imagine he will continue to serve as a representative for a watch manufacturer who lives up to the same standard.
