Roger Federer: Tennis with a Meteorite-dial Daytona

...Tennis with a Meteorite-dial Daytona...



"King of Sneakers" Ronnie Fieg and tennis legend Roger Federer, sharing the same initials, will announce on Monday they have joined forces to release new Federer-signed tennis footwear, (RF)².

In the promotional video Roger Federer, a Rolex brand ambassador, is playing tennis with a Daytona meteorite dial ref. 116509What makes it special, in my opinion, is how rare we see Federer actually play tennis with a Rolex on his wrist. He usually straps it on after the game for the raising of the trophy. I think it's crazy, yet awesome, Federer is hitting the ball with a meteorite-dial Daytona.

The Rolex Daytona 116509 Meteorite dial was released in 2021 and is literally out of this world as the dial comes from an asteroid that has exploded millions of years ago.

Ronnie Fieg, meanwhile, is rocking a GMT-Master Pepsi on Jubilee. Fieg is an American designer and the founder of Kith. He is also one of the world’s biggest sneaker entrepreneurs. Watch journalist Jack Forster once profiled Fieg for a Hodinkee magazine article.

In the short clip below, we can see Federer hitting the ball hard while wearing the Daytona. That's impressive as the Daytona meteorite dial is in full 18 ct white gold. The full clip can be seen on Ronnie Fieg's Twitter post.
