In honor of  Wimbledon 2016, the highly anticipated 3rd grand slam of the year, here are some influential tennis players and their choice of luxury watch.

Serena Williams 

Although Serena Williams has never had an AP watch customized for her, tennis enthusiast will have seen a familiar 37 mm Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore in rose gold with a diamond-set white rubber bezel on her wrist for the 2014-2016 season.  Serena while wearing this watch, won her sixth Wimbledon last year setting her well on her way to a grand slam season.

The Royal Oak Offshore is cased in a beautiful 18k rose gold case, and its self-winding calibre is a 3120 movement with a date function and big seconds.  The watch also features a sapphire crystal back and a screw-locked crown, with 40 brilliant-cut diamonds buried in the bezel.  The silver dial has a grande tapisserie pattern.  The watch is also water resistant up to 50 meters and has a power reserve of approximately 60 hours.
