The Rolex Wimbledon dial date back to 1978. During that year, Rolex became the official timekeeper of the prestigious tennis tournament, Wimbledon Championships. In 2009 Rolex released a special dial for the Datejust II, symbolizing the collaboration between Rolex and the Wimbledon series.
Now known as the Wimbledon dial, it featured a slate grey face with Roman markings underlined in a traditional green tint. Even though Rolex does not officially call it the Wimbledon dial, the watch community gave it the nickname. Today, Rolex has a page on its website showcasing the collaboration and features a Wimbledon Datejust model right at the bottom.
While the Wimbledon dial was initially introduced on the Datejust II, it was later passed on to the Datejust 41. It happened when Rolex decided to discontinue Datejust II in 2016. A few years later, the Swiss watchmaker also added the dial to its Datejust 36 models.
The Wimbledon dial is available with a variety of Datejust models. You can get the Wimbledon Rolex dial on a stainless steel model or a two-tone one. Two-tone models are available in a combination of stainless steel with rose gold or yellow gold.
You can further combine it with an Oyster bracelet or a Jubilee bracelet. One also can choose between a fluted bezel or a smooth one.
One main feature differentiates a Wimbledon Rolex from all the other Datejust models. It is a slate grey dial at its core. It is not just any grey dial but has a few unique elements. The dial gets roman numerals in black with green outlining on them.
This dial has quickly gained popularity among Rolex fans and enthusiasts. Known as the Wimbledon Rolex dial, it is only available with the Datejust models. Even on Datejust, the dial is only available for the 36mm and 41mm variants. It is not an option for the Datejust 31mm buyers.
The word Wimbledon here is all about the dial, but it can mean a lot more for some people. Tennis fans will always appreciate the Wimbledon Rolex dial on the Datejust 41 with yellow gold and stainless steel two-tone look. This is because it offers an 18ct Yellow Gold Fluted Bezel. It completes the look of a Wimbledon and directly matches the official clock on the center court in Wimbledon.
A Jubilee bracelet further best complements this combination. The dial offers an elegant look, and only the Jubilee bracelet is able to do justice to it.
It is difficult to determine how many Rolex Datejust Wimbledon watches are out there. However, it is believed that Rolex has produced very low numbers of this model. This makes the Rolex Datejust Wimbledon a rare and collectible timepiece.
Now that Rolex Wimbledon is available in various configurations, there are many pieces out there. But getting your hands on one directly via the Rolex retail store is still not easy. Due to the huge demand for the watch, there is a long waiting time before you can get hold of the watch.
The best way to get a Rolex Wimbledon watch without waiting much would be to buy it from the secondary market.
Besides the Wimbledon tournament, Rolex has also collaborated with the tennis legend Rodger Federer. The Swiss tennis player is one of the brand ambassadors of Rolex.
The Swiss manufacturer first collaborated with Federer in 2006, signing a $15 million 10-year contract that was one of the highest single sponsorships for any professional athlete at the time. Even today, a 10-year deal for a sports star is rare, particularly given how a player’s career might vary or even break apart due to injuries.
Despite his retiring from the sport in 2021, the contract was extended in 2017 at a little reduced $9 million per year, and he is now expected to serve as an ambassador for life.
This is why Roger Federer always has a Rolex watch on his wrist in public. He has even been pictured with Rolex watches on his wrist while lifting trophies after a Wimbledon tournament.
