The ICYMI, Wimbledon is not just the world’s oldest tennis tournament but also one of the most stylish events graced by hordes of celebrities from music, sports and cinema. While the players battled it out on the green courts at Wimbledon 2023, A-listed attendees like Roger Federer, David Beckham, Brad Pitt, Nick Jonas and others left no stone unturned to flash their best arm candies at the Grand Slam.
This year, the iconic Rolex-sponsored grass tournament witnessed some of the most exotic timepieces, including limited edition Hublot to classy Omega and others.
While we know who won the game on-field, let’s find out who won the hearts with their crackling watch selection off-field.
The big news from this year’s Wimbledon is that the tournament witnessed a tectonic shift in the tennis landscape as 20-years old Carlos Alcaraz accepted the Gentleman’s Singles Trophy. Following the footstep of Roger Federer, the young talent has already signed an ambassadorship with Rolex and wore the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Ref: 116500LN to lift the cup. It was a yellow-gold Rolex with a black Cerachrom bezel and a fine meteorite dial - a fitting choice given his spectacular rise to tennis stardom.
Famous Hollywood actor Brad Pitt graced his presence on the final day of the 2023 Wimbledon Championships wearing a rare and vintage 38mm steel Vacheron Constantin Jumbo Ref: 44018. The 44018 with a blue dial is popularly known as the ‘222’. It has a sleek 38mm case made of steel.
Vacheron Constantin launched the 222 to commemorate the brand’s 222th anniversary in 1977 which stands out from its peers, the Nautilus and the Royal Oak with a slightly more cutting-edge design. The watch ran a small production before it was discontinued in 1985, making it extremely rare to find.
Irrespective of the event, Nick Jonas often stands out as the best-dressed man for his impeccable taste. No wonder the singer-actor made it a point to turn heads at Wimbledon 2023 with his classic-looking Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso. The youngest of the Jonas Brothers paid a visit on the last day of the tournament wearing a beige Ralph Lauren suit which along with the JLC Reverso Classic Monoface Small Seconds Ref: Q3858522 made him look like a million bucks.
The design of the watch in steel is emblematic of the Reverso collection and the clean silver dial marks a fantastic contrast. It is dressed in a calfskin strap to match the aristocracy of the piece.
Celebrating his long-standing partnership with Hublot, Novak Djokovic arrived at the Wimbledon press conference, wearing a limited edition Hublot Big Bang in green ceramic. The Ref: 451.GX.5220.GX is a limited edition 42mm timepiece having a polished ceramic case with a satin-finished green ceramic bezel featuring 6 H-shaped titanium screws.
Adding to its appeal is the matte green skeleton dial that perfectly complements the design. All in all, the green details opposite the green tennis court naturally made us gravitate towards it.
Style is something, the football G.O.A.T understands very well. At Wimbledon 2023, he was spotted wearing the Tudor Black Bay 58 Ref: M79018v-0001 that complemented his Ralph Lauren beige suit jacket and silk tie amazingly.
The watch has a 39mm 18ct yellow gold case and flaunts a dial as green as the tennis grass. It is highlighted by gold markings and detailing. The matte green bezel helps accentuate the dial appeal and is further coupled with a dark brown alligator strap to master the occasion.
The former 007 attended the final Wimbledon 2023 wearing an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M GoodPlanet GMT Ref: 184.108.40.206.03.001. Placed at 43.5mm, this steel watch exudes pure sophistication and panache. It has a rich blue dial featuring applied indexes, a small date display at the 3 o’clock spot and a vivid orange GMT hand, enabling the wearer to conveniently track two different time zones. The polished blue bi-directional bezel showcasing a bright orange GMT scale adds a sporty touch to the elegant design.
The former James Bond has long been the face of Omega and has been seen starring in multiple roles wearing his favourite brand. So, it’s no surprise he chose Omega to view the match. In a grey suit with a red kerchief in his pocket, Craig’s Omega complemented his outlook very well.
Wimbledon not only showcases thrilling matches but is also a runway of several remarkable watches. The watches worn by celebrities are often seen as homage to the lush green Wimbledon court and the Wimbledon 2023 witnessed some exceptional timepieces adorning the wrists of celebrities, combining style, accuracy and the essence of the game.
From Rolex’s elegance to Hublot’s robustness, the watches captured the true spirit of Wimbledon and served as a symbol of style and performance.
