Last week, tennis legend Roger Federer successfully won the eighth Wimbledon men’s singles title in his career, breaking the Wimbledon Tennis Championships record and re-verifying his title of ‘God of the Grass’. This not only delighted his fans, but also excited watch fans; because, while Federer was holding a gold cup in both hands to kiss, he also added a Rolex legendary watch on his wrist.
Roger Federer won his eighth Wimbledon tennis championship this year, setting a record in the tennis world, and can be said to be one of Rolex’s most successful spokespersons.
Roger Federer’s relationship with Rolex dates back to 2001, when he was only 20 years old and he had never won any Grand Slam championship. Federer today has an unprecedented record of 19 Grand Slam titles and sits on the World Championship throne for a total of 302 weeks, including 237 consecutive weeks in February 2004 and August 2008. Most of the championship moments took place with the participation of Rolex.
If anyone could collect all the Rolex watches that Federer wore on his wrist when he won the championship, it would be another amazing and admirable record. Of course, the watch most fans want to start with now is the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41, which was worn by Federer when he won Wimbledon, model 126303. This watch is made of gold and steel, which is a combination of stainless steel and gold. Among them, the stainless steel part is made of 904L stainless steel, which is only used by Rolex, which is more resistant to corrosion than ordinary 316L stainless steel. The link between the bezel and the bracelet is 18ct yellow gold.
Model 3235 self-winding movement, using the patented Chronergy escapement system and blue Parachrom hairspring, has a power reserve of 70 hours.
In addition to the date display with a magnified sapphire crystal window, the Roman numerals on the dial are a major feature. The large black font is set against the large black frame of Rolex, which is clear and eye-catching. The high recognition brings excellent reading time. The dark gray sunburst dial is also perfectly matched. Equipped with 3235 automatic winding movement, it is a new generation of Rolex’s self-made movement. Equipped with a patented Chronergy escapement system, the thickness of the ruby on the escapement fork is reduced by 50% compared with the previous generation, and the contact surface of the escapement gear mouth is doubled; the escapement wheel with a hollow structure is lighter and the escapement fork It is slightly shifted to enhance the leverage effect and improve the efficiency by 15%. The nickel-phosphorus material is used to prevent magnetic interference like the blue Parachrom hairspring.
The patented Chronergy escapement system adopts a hollow escapement wheel, which is lighter; the thickness of the ruby on the pallet fork is reduced by 50%, and the angle slightly offset can increase the efficiency by 15%.
In addition, the thickness of the inner wall of the barrel is only half of the previous one. The extra space increases the length of the barrel and improves the power reserve of the movement to 70 hours. Under the certification of the COSC Swiss Official Observatory, the accuracy of the Model 3235 is as high as plus or minus 2 seconds of daily error, which can be said to be very powerful. Such a practical and strong internal aesthetic design, 126303 is indeed quite attractive; not to mention that becoming the brand spokesperson Roger Federer won the eighth Wimbledon champion of his career, it is even more important for fans to start.
