Roger Federer Wears Rolex’s Most Exclusive New Watch To Wimbledon

The Rog serving horological goodness at The Championships.

Roger Federer is easily Rolex’s most famous brand ambassador, and the role comes with more than a few perks – as the tennis champ’s latest timepiece demonstrates.


The 40-year-old 20-time Grand Slam title winner, while not competing at Wimbledon this year, was in attendance at the prestigious tournament for a celebration of its former champions in a ceremony commemorating the 100th anniversary of centre court games at the All England Club.

Federer cut a dapper figure alongside fellow Wimbledon champs like Novak Djokovic and Rod Laver, turning up in a slick black suit and wearing one of his signature On Running sneakers.

But we were particularly impressed by what was on his wrist: a brand-new off-catalogue Rolex Cosmograph Daytona ‘Orange’. It’s perhaps the best look most of us have had at the eye-catching new luxury timepiece and one that’s sure to have made more than a few watch fans jealous.

A luxurious take on the already highly coveted chronograph, the Daytona ‘Orange’ is crafted from 18ct yellow gold, is fitted on an Oysterflex strap and features a bezel mounted with 32 baguette-cut orange sapphires and a black dial with 11 baguette-cut orange sapphire hour markers.

As we alluded to above, it’s an ‘off-catalogue’ Rolex, meaning that it’s a model that’s not officially listed anywhere on Rolex’s website or on display in boutiques. This is a rare and exclusive watch that’s only offered or available to Rolex’s most important customers – or ‘testimonees’ (what the brand calls their ambassadors).

Typically, off-catalogue Rolexes are the brand’s most sumptuous and expensive creations. The most famous off-catalogue Rolex is the Daytona ‘Eye Of The Tiger’, a similarly bejewelled precious metal timepiece that’s a favourite of celebrities like Conor McGregor.

This isn’t the only 2022 Rolex that Roger’s been spotted wearing lately. The Swiss star notably wore the much-hyped new Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Sprite’ during the 2022 Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix, where he was spotted rocking the watch while meeting Mercedes stars Lewis Hamilton and George Russell.
