The partnership between Roger Federer and Rolex began in 2006, the year in which the tennis player achieved his ninth Grand Slam victory. He will win 11 more in a difficult era in which 2 more of the greatest players of all time have appeared such as Nadal and Djokovic.
The bond between Federer and Rolex is one of the most fascinating and enduring the tennis circuit has ever known. The Rolex Daytona Datejust is not Roger Federer’s favourite. Even if he wore it to his fifteenth Grand Slam win in July 2009 at Wimbledon, his favorites would be others.
A model that has certainly remained in his heart is the Yacht-Master II worn during the award ceremony for his victory at Roland Garros in 2009. The reason is simple. After several attempts he had managed to win the title on clay, the only Grand Slam tournament he was missing.
Here Roger Federer’s favorite Rolex!
The price is around $16,000, steel material, bidirectional rotating bezel, mechanical memory and steel Oyster bracelet. Scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and waterproof to 100 meters.
Certainly not one of the most popular models of Rolex, criticized at the time for the choice, but one of the favorites of the Swiss champion both technically and from a sentimental point of view. In 2012 he won his seventeenth Grand Slam title and his seventh English title.
He will win one more reaching 8. For the award he will show off a Day Date II with Everose gold case and chocolate dial. A model that will remain in his heart given the difficult period behind him. On that occasion Federer had starved at Wimbledon for 3 years and had not won a Grand Slam title for 2 years.
A real negative record for him. It was a release. And in fact he chose an unforgettable model to celebrate. Price $80,000, fluted bezel, sapphire crystal, 40 mm case, automatic movement and 3255 caliber. The Rolex Datejust 41, a classic product of the brand, was worn by the Swiss champion during some victories on English turf.
Variant with smooth bezel and Oyster bracelet, the chosen caliber was the 3225 also produced with a Jubilee bracelet. The cost is around $14,000.
