Watch Spotting: Roger Federer Wins The 2017 Australian Open And Celebrates With A Rolex GMT-Master II BLNR On His Wrist
Yesterday we educated you concerning Serena Williams’ most recent triumph , which made her the best female part in the advanced Open period of tennis, and how she accomplished this with a strong rose gold Audemars Piguet Millenary on her wrist. Federer wasn’t wearing his Rolex during the real match today (not we all can be as boss as Serena), yet at 35 years of age he was the most established significant title finalist in 43 years and with this success expands his record to 18 significant titles.
Unlike Serena Williams, Federer didn’t wear his watch during the real match.
The Rolex being referred to was the much-hummed about GMT-Master II BLNR, also called the “Batman” GMT. The watch was first delivered at Baselworld 2013 and its blue and dark 24-hour bezel made it the absolute first Rolex to highlight a two-tone Cerachrome bezel (immediately followed by the white gold GMT-Master II with a blue and red bezel ). I need to say, I’m somewhat astounded Federer wasn’t shaking the new clay bezel Daytona that we’ve seen him wearing a ton this year, yet perhaps this watch has some close to home importance or he needed to shake things up.

On the contrary side of the court however, there was another magnificent watch. Rafael Nadal was wearing his particular Richard Mille RM 27-02 tourbillon , which is immediately unmistakable by the splendid orange-red tie (that was initially intended to review the mud tennis courts of Roland Garros at the French Open). Certainly, Rafa winds up in runner up at the Australian Open, yet with a watch like that on his wrist, we think he’ll be ok.
