Serena Williams has become a household name in pop culture – as one of the greatest tennis players of all-time, her success is undeniable.
The 35-year-old has been ranked as the world’s number one tennis player on six separate occasions by the Women’s Tennis Association, and she has won over $74,000,000 in prize money, which is the first such achievement among women tennis players.
Serena holds the most titles of any tennis player – this, among all active male and female competitors. This accomplishment itself ranks her as the 5th ever player to win 36 major tournaments. In 2002-2003 and 2014-2015, she held all four major titles, making her the most recent to do so of all the men and women. And these are just to list a few.
From a marketing point of view, what more could any company or sponsor ask for than to be a part of Williams’ team?
So what watch does Serena Williams wear?
Celebrating her 6th Wimbledon title in 2015, Serena wore her Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore, valued at $38,000.
The Royal Oak Offshore is 18k rose gold, and its self-winding calibre is a 3120 movement with a date function and big seconds. The watch also features a sapphire crystal back and a screw-locked crown, with 40 brilliant-cut diamonds buried in the bezel. The silver dial has a grande tapisserie pattern. The watch is also water resistant up to 50 meters and has a power reserve of approximately 60 hours.
Serena has been the face for Audemars Piguet since 2013 and has had many wins whilst wearing their timepieces. Serena was photographed at Art Basel in 2014, dissecting and admiring the architecture of a Royal Oak Offshore calibre 2120 movement in the Audemars Piguet VIP booth. It’s evident that Serena’s wins continue to strengthen her relationship with this luxury watch brand.
Audemars Piguet has made many special or limited edition watches in coordination with or in honor of many celebrities and athletes. As one of the best and most highly-regarded luxury watch manufacturers, there are no doubts as to why Serena has become yet another of their world-class ambassadors.
She continues to attack the monuments of history and continues to overpower all who stand before her. Looking towards the beginning of yet another season in tennis, who could possibly predict the records she will break?
