Four Decades Partnership Between Wimbledon and Rolex
In 1978, Rolex, the luxury watchmaker built a partnership with the sport of tennis. That year, Rolex became the official timekeeper at Wimbledon, the oldest and most famous tennis tournament in the world. From that time, tennis has become an important facet of the iconic brand.
Rolex has built partnerships with other Grand Slam tournaments, like the Australian Open, as well as other events, like the Shanghai Masters, BNP Paribas Open, and Monte-Carlo Masters. Moreover, they’ve enlisted many top players in the sport as ambassadors for the brand. This year is particularly more special. It marks the 40th anniversary of this long term partnership. At the 2018 Wimbledon tournament, fake Rolex is celebrating forty years of cooperating with the tennis industry, back where it began.
Roger Federer, Rolex’s most important ambassador, took home his first Grand Slam win at Wimbledon in 2003. He has obtained a record eight titles at The Championships, all while proudly representing the watchmaker brand. After games, you can find him sporting one of several pieces from his collection, including a replica Sky-Dweller, fake Oyster Perpetual Platinum, Daytona, Datejust, or GMT Master II. Federer doesn’t consider they are a good luck charm or what has led him to his victories. It’s simply his unmatchable talent and replica Rolex.
To commemorate this milestone event, Rolex has placed many current tennis stars in their 40 Love campaign, like Federer, Wozniacki, and Muguruza, along with tennis legends like Rod Laver, Bjorn Borg, and Chris Evert. The ads showcase the slogan, “It not only tell time. but also tells history.” This represents the great importance of the heritage between the brand and the sport.
The Rolex replica Datejust 41 IS another important piece of the partnership, it is the unofficial fake watch of Wimbledon. Like The Championships, the Datejust has a long history. It was the first self-winding, water-resistant wristwatch with a date window on the dial. Since its debut, it had been regarded as the modern archetype of the classic watch and the pioneer for other favorite inexpensive Rolex models like the Explorer and Submariner.
Wimbledon started in 1877, it took place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London. Although Rolex attended the event just about 100 years after the first tournament, they’ve since become synonymous with the games. Now, it’s hard to imagine the game without the Rolex reference clock as a timekeeper. The two are the perfect pair, each valuing a commitment to tradition, excellence, and innovation.
