While the big news in the watch/tennis world over the past 10 days has been Nadal’s newest ultra-light-weight, $800,000 Richard Mille Tourbillon, it wasn’t this mega watch, or even Djokovic’s Seiko Astron, that was seen as the championship trophy was hoisted yesterday at Roland Garros. Nay, it was an Audemars Piguet Replica UK, and it was the wrist of Swiss-born Stan Wawrinka.
What is even more is that Stan didn’t just put his AP – A Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph in Steel (reference 26470ST) – on after he won, but he actually wore the watch while playing! This AP is a big watch, not a featherweight like the Nadal tourbillon, which makes it even cooler.
Serena Williams Also Wearing An AP After Winning The French Open
Stan Wawrinka wasn’t the only friend of AP to emerge victorious at the French Open – Serena Williams won the women’s title and when accepting the trophy placed a ladies’ Offshore on the wrist. No, she didn’t wear it while playing, but either way, these are two bigs wins for the little watchmaker from Le Brassus.
Oh, and here was a nice little shout out for AP Replica from Serena to Stan:
