Recently, the Swiss ace sported the “Oyster Perpetual” from the latest Rolex collection. The watch has a deep, forest green dial. It is one of the latest pieces but the inspiration goes way back in history.  He wore the watch until the first point of the match began and back again on its conclusion. 

The colorful new Oyster Perpetual that the Swiss ace has been wearing is a bring back of a famous collection of Rolex watches going back to the 1980s. This watch and the personality of the 20-time Grand Slam winner go hand in hand.
