Yesterday (January 30), tennis player Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open against Rafael Nadal (Richard Mille ambassador). It has been a battle that lasted five sets and almost 6 hours. When he finally lifted the trophy, watch spotters immediately recognized the timepiece on the wrist of this Audemars Piguet ambassador. The Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Diver, ref.15703ST. A perfect fit for a sportsman.
We’ve written a review about this exact same Diver a while ago (click here for our share of fun with the Diver 15703ST and a VW Phaeton) and we think it is the best looking Offshore that AP has to offer. Clean design, perfect size (42mm in diameter) and very versatile, especially when worn with the rubber strap or a leather horn back replacement. The ref.15703 AP ROO Diver is our near-perfect modern sports watch, we can imagine Mr Djokovic picked this one from the AP collection.
On the wrist. Who wears it better?
With this victory Mr Djokovic has consolidated his position as world number one and has started his season as well as in 2011. Let’s wait and see what will happen in 2012. It seems that the world top of tennis players are in good companion though, Djokovic and AP, Nadal and RM. Congrats!
