Novak Djokovic was able to come away with his second Wimbledon victory in a row on Sunday, but the crown for best wrist piece was up for debate. There were definitely some quality watches on display, but there can only be one victor. Here are the five most stylish ones that we saw on the court.
With over 70 hours of battery life, this timepiece has almost as much energy as the greatest clay court player in history, Rafael Nadal. The spline screws in its case allow for durability, which is necessary for someone who has won 14 Grand Slam singles titles to wear. Even though he was knocked out in the second round, it was a joy staring at Nadal’s wrist during those two matches.
After winning the 2014 Australian Open and 2015 French Open, Wawrinka needed to step his wrist game up, too. That’s why he now rocks a thick white ceramic case that has diamond engraved bevels. The white rubber strap that the Royal Oak Offshore Diver comes in tack with doesn’t look bad, either. Although there are 40 jewels in the timepiece, they didn’t seem to slow him down with victories in his first three round victories.
The two time Wimbledon winner is a busy man, which is why he doesn’t have the patience to adjust his watch to the correct time zone. Well, maybe he does, but Djokevic does not need to have patience with Seiko Astron’s ability to autocorrect itself, as the world’s first GPS solar watch. Djokovic is able to bounce back and forth on the court with the Astron 30% smaller than standard size framing.
The world’s No. 3 ranked tennis player had quite a bit of bling on his wrist during the 2015 Wimbledon tournament. That bling came in the form of a HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph Match Point, with its plasma high-tech ceramic. Its also a strong style accessory that helped Murray stand out from the competition on the court. Yet the Rado Switzerland watch’s grey coloring and transparent case back kept him from being too loud accessory-wise.
Much is expected of you when you’re the best women’s tennis player in the world. Ms. Williams’ wrist lives up to those standards with the sleek Audemars Piguet Ladies Royal Oak Offshore watch. The Rihanna-esque 18-carat gold case shined is just as bright as her game on the court. You’ll be relieved to know that the timepiece can resist water up to 20 meters, Serena probably needed after her triumphant Gatorade shower.
