Roger Federer Watch Collection - GOAT-Worthy
Roger Federer Watch – The tennis superstar Roger Federer has announced his retirement from the ATP Tour and Grand Slams after the Laver Cup in London next week. On his Instagram account, he posted his beautifully-written farewell message to all his tennis family.
For people who grew up watching his incredible tennis journey from the beginning, this news sounds really sad.
Nevertheless, I want to use this occasion to say, “Thank you, Roger, for all the countless memories. You are always humble, kind, honest and grateful. Such a living legend! There will never be another like you. Enjoy the next chapter of your life!”
Now, let’s get back to business. Let’s find out what watches the Swiss maestro wears? I take an in-depth look at Roger Federer watch collection. All of his luxury watches I could find are Rolex because he has been a Rolex Ambassador since 2001.
Also, I want to mention Federer belongs to the list of the highest-paid athletes in 2022. According to Forbes, much of Roger Federer’s income comes from endorsements, as it does for many other well-known athletes. Rolex has offered him a substantial sponsorship agreement.
Federer originally struck an endorsement arrangement with the renowned luxury watch manufacturer in 2006. The 10-year, $15 million deal earned him around $1.5 million each year and was one of the largest endorsement deals ever made for an athlete at the time.
Roger Federer Watch at Roland Garros 2009 – Rolex Yacht-Master II
Roger Federer wears Rolex Yacht-Master II 116689
I would like to begin with the 2009 French Open, often known as Roland Garros. Federer chose a gorgeous Yacht-Master II in white gold to wear on the court.
The watch was initially developed for sailors (thus the name), and it has a setting mechanism controlled by a ring command bezel as well as a regatta timer that allows you to select a countdown interval of anything from one to ten minutes.
This timepiece, as worn by David Beckham, Bruce Willis, and Mark Wahlberg, has found love outside of the yacht club. Also, because of its uber-luxe style, it will spice up any suit, whether in the workplace or at a black-tie event.
Retail price: $26,919.
Roger Federer Rolex Watch at Wimbledon 2012 – Rolex Day-Date
Roger Federer and Rolex Day-Date 228235
Back in 2012, Roger Federer won the Wimbledon 2012. As we can see in the picture, he was holding a yellow gold trophy, but favouring rose gold for his watch.
During the ceremony, he was seen wearing a rose gold Rolex Day-Date II featuring a chocolate brown dial, ten baguette-cut diamonds hour markers, and a date window at 3 o’clock.
The watch also comes with the Day-Date signature presidential bracelet.
Market price (Sept 2022): ~$63,000.
Roger Federer Watch at Australia Open 2017 – Rolex ‘Batman’

Who doesn't love Rolex Batman with the beautiful black and blue bezel color combination?
Roger Federer Watch Sponsor at Wimbledon 2017 – Rolex ‘Wimbledon’
Roger Federer wears Rolex Datejust ‘Wimbledon’ dial 126303
During Wimbledon 2017, Federer was seen wearing a rather appropriate watch for his record-breaking eighth Wimbledon victory. He wore a 41 mm Rolex Datejust with a Wimbledon dial.
The Wimbledon dial features a distinct dial with dark green Roman numerals on a rhodium dial. It is a magnificent style that sticks out and radiates sophistication.
Rolex is among the brands that have supported the event for years. In 1978, they became the official timekeeper of this English summer ritual, marking the start of a blossoming relationship.
They introduced the Wimbledon dial in 2009 to honor their flourishing collaboration, which features a slate grey face and Roman markings accented in a classic green tint. Many people have interpreted this pattern as a homage to Wimbledon’s green fields.
Current market price (Sept 2022): ~$15,000.
Roger Federer Rolex Watch at Australia Open 2018 – Rolex Sky-Dweller

Roger Federer won his eighth Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in 2017, and he just repeated the feat in 2018 to win his twentieth career Grand Slam title.
However, it was not an easy battle against 29-year-old Croatian powerhouse Marin Cilic. The two had previously clashed in the Wimbledon finals in 2017, where Federer also won his 19 Grand Slam (and eighth Wimbledon title).
In the picture, we can see a beautiful blue dial Rolex Sky-Dweller on his wrist while holding the trophy. Blue dial watches used to be the hottest on the market, but I think even now, some watch collectors still love the colour.
The Sky-Dweller is one of the most complex timepieces in the Rolex catalog because it features two time zones, a date display, and an annual calendar. The watch was designed to be the perfect luxury travel watch intended for travelling business executives and the jet-setting crowd.
Market price (Sept 2022): ~$29,000.
Roger Federer Watch at Wimbledon 2018 – Rolex Day-Date

At Wimbledon 2018, Federer was seen wearing the beautiful rose gold Rolex Day-Date 40 mm with the 60th Anniversary dial.
The watch features an olive green sunray finish with beautiful Roman numerals. As usual, the day indicator is placed at 12 o’clock and spells out the day of the week in full. And the date window is visible at 3 o’clock through the cyclops lens.
Roger Federer Watch at Wimbledon 2021 – Rolex OP Yellow
Roger Federer with Rolex Oyster Perpetual Yellow 124300
At one of the press conferences of the Wimbledon 2021, the Rolex ambassador since 2001 was spotted flexing a 41 mm Rolex Oyster Perpetual with a striking yellow dial that reminds us of the bright yellow tennis ball.
For your information, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) undertook a study that found that yellow tennis balls were easier for home viewers to see on their screens.
Earlier this year, Rolex discontinued the yellow and red dial in all sizes at Watches and Wonders. Currently, the watch retails for around $20,000 on the secondary market. No wonder the market price for this discontinued model skyrocketed.
Roger Federer Watch at Wimbledon 2021 – Rolex OP Green

Another Oyster Perpetual that is in his collection is the green dial Oyster Perpetual reference 124300. The dial colour reminds us of the green tennis court, which fits the tennis superstar perfectly.
Compared to the yellow, red, and turquoise dial Oyster Perpetual, this model is not discontinued. Therefore, the current market price is lower than the other discontinued models.
Current market price (Sept 2022): ~$13,000.
Roger Federer Watch at Barcelona Grand Prix 2022 – Rolex ‘Sprite’
Roger Federer with Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Sprite’ 126720VTNR
During the F1 Grand Prix Barcelona in May 2022, the Swiss tennis legend was seen wearing the new Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Sprite’, which was introduced during the Watch and Wonders 2022 in Geneva, on his left wrist.
This model is officially the first left-handed Rolex ever created, with a crown position at 9 instead of 3 o’clock. It features a cerachrom bezel inlay that blends green and black, which has never been done before.
He is one of the athletes that have been spotted wearing this watch.
Roger Federer Watch at Wimbledon 2022 – Rolex Daytona
Rolex Daytona ‘Orange’ 116588SACO
The last Roger Federer watch that I want to highlight in this blog is the off-catalog Rolex Daytona ‘Orange’ in yellow gold. The luxurious timepiece fitted on Oysterflex features a bezel with 32 baguette-cut orange sapphires and a black dial with 11 baguette-cut orange sapphire hour markers.
He wore this watch when he was attending the Wimbledon 2022, to celebrate its former champions in a ceremony commemorating the 100th anniversary of the tournaments at the All England Club.
Retail price: $86,750.
