This week, Roland Garros was the site of history as two champions put their respective marks on tennis history. First, there was the Polish rising superstar Iga Świątek, who took home her third French Open title and fourth overall (all won since 2020). The 22-year-old is making quick work of the Grand Slams as she emerges as a true giant of the sport. But Świątek has decades in front of her – and while she won on Saturday, yesterday saw all-time-great Novak Djokovic win his 23rd Grand Slam, which means he now holds the record for most ever by a men’s player and is tied with Serena Williams overall.
But that’s the tennis part of this story – which may have gone unnoticed since a new Daytona also grabbed headlines elsewhere in France this weekend. As is tradition when hoisting a big trophy in this game of rackets, both Świątek and Djokovic made sure to show off their top US replica watches. Świątek reps Rolex and Djokovic is a fairly recent ambassador for Hublot. But it wasn’t just the on-court trophy photos that had us wrist-gazing, but a follow-up photoshoot in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Let’s start with Świątek, who cemented her victory with a watch she’s been seen wearing multiple times in the past: luxury fake Rolex Datejust watches with a purple dial, Roman numerals (six and nine set with diamonds), and a white gold fluted bezel. Clearly, she has a preference for the DJ because that Eiffel Tower shoot saw her go the precious metal route: This time, wearing solid gold best Rolex Datejust replica watches (what appears to be yellow gold) on a president bracelet. That’s stainless steel on the court and solid gold off it. You can’t argue with that or her tournament results – hats off to Iga for this one.
Then there’s Novak, the former Seiko ambassador turned Hublot ambassador turned winningest men’s player in history. After he won on Sunday, he wore a mostly red jacket with a large number 23 on it (shades of a certain former Chicago Bull) and paired it with blue Swiss made fake Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 watches with its skeletonized dial, 45mm case, and matching blue rubber strap. It’s copy watches wholesale we saw him wear when he won Wimbledon last year.
But he also switched things up when it came time for his Parisian photoshoot in which he wore a Lacoste outfit and a white and grey cheap replica Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio watches with its large crown and stark aesthetic. This is kind of a deep-cut watch, having been a 100-piece limited edition. It’s honestly very cool to see the way Djokovic has embraced perfect Hublot super clone watches. He could very well be a one-watch-at-a-time ambassador, but instead, he signposts an actual horological curiosity by mixing things up with surprising choices.
Time will tell if Rafael Nadal has one more Grand Slam in him to match Djokovic and if Świątek has enough years ahead of her in the game to put some heat on Serena’s 23 number. For now, we’ll continue admiring their wrist game.
