While the matches kept tennis fanatics on their toes, so did the wrist pieces for watch aficionados. Earlier last week, Roger Federer made waves in the watch world debuting a newly released Rolex Sky-Dweller when he was honored at center court. In addition to showing off his skills on the court, the 20-year-old Spaniard won the Wimbledon trophy in a five hour gruelling match, all while sporting the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona.
Alcaraz’s timepiece, Ref. 116519 LN, is adorned in 18-carat yellow-gold casing and features a black Cerachrom bezel and a meteorite dial. Living up to its name, the dial is made with material derived from the heart of an asteroid. The watch’s dial is special since Rolex recently discontinued the use of meteorite dials last March. Due to the discontinuation, these watches now go for six-figures. What makes this Daytona extra special is that it is paired with an Oysterflex band to go along with its water resistant up to 330 feet feature. The watch features Rolex’s classic tachymetric scale engraved on the bezel and a triple-register chronograph display that sees a 30-minute counter, a 12-hour counter and a seconds counter. The watch runs on a 72 hour power reserve.
Despite a runner-up at this year’s Wimbledon, Djokovic sported a rare wrist piece, specifically the limited edition Hublot Big Bang with Integrated Green Ceramic. The watch comes with a polished green ceramic and satin finish for its 42 mm case, bezel and bracelet. Limited to just 250 pieces, the watch is priced at around $24,100 USD and sports a skeleton dial that shows off the brand’s HUB1280 UNICO integrated self-winding chronograph.
