Roger Federer sports a Wimbledon-themed 1:1 replica Rolex UK at Wimbledon

Sometimes, I feel for Roger Federer: He’s one of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen, and yet the dude can’t just show up, post-retirement, to spectate at a tennis match in a pair of jeans and a polo shirt. Nope – this guy has to dress like an MI6 agent on assignment no matter where he goes, right down to the fake wristwatches paypal uk.

As such, we can always count on Fed for excellent watch spotting, and Wimbledon 2024 has been no different. Paired to his beautiful grey suit was a perfect replica Rolex Datejust 36 with – appropriately enough – a “Wimbledon” dial. Launched in 2009, such Datejusts come in various bezel, metal, and bracelet combinations, but their dials are all of a kind: after receiving a sunray finish using a bruising technique, a dark grey rhodium colour is applied via PVD or electroplating, followed by a coat of varnish. Black Roman numeral indices with green Chromalight edges are then applied, in addition to a luxury fake Rolex coronet at 12 o’clock and a white rectangular index at 9 o’clock. At the outer edge of the dial is a minute track in white with 5-minute demarcations, plus the Datejust’s signature date window at 3 o’clock.

Why is this configuration referred to as a “Wimbledon” dial? It’s thought that the green within the numerals is a nod to Wimbledon’s green pitches, where Swiss made replica Rolex has served as an Official Timekeeper since 1978. (And where the grass must measure precisely 8mm tall, or else a small English child must be sacrificed to calm John McEnroe’s tempestuous fury and restore order to the Universe.)

You might think that a watch like the Submariner – perhaps the most iconic wristwatch model in the world – would be high quality fake Rolex’s best-seller, or perhaps the coveted Daytona. But you’d be wrong: It’s actually the Datejust. Born in 1945, the model had the then-novel feature of a date window that switched over at exactly midnight, and thus was always – so the horological lore goes – “just.” And though the model is typically associated in most collector’s minds with a fluted bezel, it also comes in domed (smooth) or diamond-set format. Roger Federer’s “Wimbledon,” in Rolesor (two-tone gold and steel), features a domed dial, proving that a Rolex Datejust replica for sale is a Datejust is a Datejust… even if snooty watch journalists might privately “harumph” under their breath.

Next to certain other models in his collection, the “Wimbledon”-dial Rolex Datejust replica online uk likely won’t carry the same “wow” factor for jaded IG watch spotters. But you’d be hard-pressed to think of a more appropriate watch for the GOAT to wear to one of the most revered and historical sporting events in the world – and this is a guy with a “Le Mans” Daytona hiding somewhere in his house. (Bring that watch back out, Rog!)
