Rolex is indispensable from sport, whether as a sponsor, partner or timekeeper; where success is celebrated, Rolex is not far away. The Swiss luxury brand has been the official time emitter for the Wimbledon Championships since 1978. The world’s oldest and most prestigious Grand Slam tournament takes place in London for two weeks each summer, bringing together world-leading players on the green grass.
The Rolex „Wimbledon“. In 2009 Rolex introduced the Datejust II 116333, which got its nickname because of its special dial-in slate grey. The Roman numerals on it are in black and outlined in green – “Wimbledon green”, reminding us simultaneously of Rolex and Wimbledon. At Baselworld 2016 an updated version of the Datejust was introduced. Ref.: 126333 is also available with Wimbledon Dial. The Rolesor model has a case diameter of 41 mm and radiates with a cambered bezel for the tennis star to compete with. Its predecessor model had a 48-hour power reserve, which was extended to 70 hours in the new model. Equipped with a Rolex Manufacture movement caliber 3235, it is a reliable companion and combines traditional design with the latest technology – in the style of Rolex and Wimbledon.
So we have it, full set, 41 mm, as good as new, in the Rolex 5-year warranty…….Let the games begin!
