This year marks the 139th edition of tennis’ US Open and the fourth and final Grand Slam event of the year. Drawing celebrities from every corner of entertainment including Sofia Vergara, Priyanka Chopra, Alec Baldwin, Jim Parsons, Jonathan Van Ness, Justin Theroux and even Tiger Woods, it’s hard not to show some enthusiasm when you have superstar sisters Venus and Serena Williams taking the court and Russia’s Daniil Medvedev emerging as the latest lobbing bad boy, trolling the officials with enough gusto to make more than a few solid headlines.

But along with the smell of tennis balls and the kerfuffle over if it was in or out, there is one thing that maybe more synonymous with the sport commonly associated with the affluent segment of society, and that’s luxury timepieces.
Whether it’s Rolex putting its name anywhere it needs to be so it’s never not on your TV screen or it’s each recognizable player wearing an exquisite timepiece seemingly more expensive than the player before, no one can escape the habitual horologic nature of tennis.
Regardless of our tennis technique, we here at AskMen are horological enthusiasts through and through, so we thought, why not write about something we are watching almost as closely as the game-set-match — the winning watches. Below we round up some of our favorite players best watches and help you find out where you can get a style like theirs, but perfect for you. Our first recommendation? For investment watches, start with certified resellers, such as Crown & Caliber and Tourneau, just like we did and you’re already at an advantage.
