British Tennis Legend Tim Henman’s Dream Watch: Rolex Oyster Perpetual Milgauss

Tim Henman is a legendary British tennis player and ranked first in the country between 1996 and 1999-2005. He started playing tennis before he was three years old because he was the youngest of the three sons of a long tennis family. His grandfather, grandmother and great-grandmother had participated in the Wimbledon Championships. Henman’s first major victory in the 1995 Grand Slam tournament opened his glorious career, and he later rose to the top four in this event. However, he had been to Wimbledon Stadium earlier, and that experience has made him and his mother unforgettable to this day. The day was the day he first discovered Rolex.

Tennis player Tim Henman, once known as ‘British Hope’, has made his way to the semi-finals of the four majors six times in his career.

Henman said he clearly remembered the details of his first visit to Wimbledon in 1981 and could even tell what he was wearing that day. It was the opening day of the Wimbledon Championships on Monday, when six-year-old Henman and his mother were lucky enough to get two tickets to the Central Stadium. The moment when Björn Borg, the five-time champion, stepped onto the court, he was impressed. What impressed Henman the most was that Borg won again! When he was a kid, supporting the winning side felt more exciting and fun, so Borg became Henman’s first tennis icon. He also set the only professional goal-desire to play in Wimbledon.
Henman comes from a family of tennis. His mother is a youth player. His grandparents played in the mixed men’s and women’s doubles tournament in Wimbledon. His grandmother also participated in this tournament in the 1900s. In fact, his maternal grandmother was the first female player to use a shoulder serve, and the grandmother was the last female player to use a serve in Wimbledon.

As early as Henman was six years old, he had already witnessed the charm of Wimbledon at the Central Court. At that time, in addition to being fascinated by the skill of the champion Björn Borg, he also discovered the Rolex clock on the court for the first time, planted Future recognition of the brand

Henman is the youngest, weakest and slowest player in the family. He must learn how to compete and maintain his standard. He wasn’t sure if his parents believed he could be a good player, but they still gave him a chance because they knew it was important to Henman. His thirst and passion for tennis is obvious. Family background must be a decisive part of his growing up.
When he was finally able to play Wimbledon, his excitement was beyond words. Henman couldn’t wait to step onto the court, enjoy the game, and test the results of his efforts to prepare for the game. Whenever he stepped on the football field, he would remember his dream when he was six years old.

The impression of Rolex watches was deeply rooted in Henman’s mind, and it was also one of the driving forces behind him to urge himself to move forward. As an adult, he obtained the first Rolex watch in his life (Milgauss), becoming an important medium to connect his childhood memories.

On that day in 1981, Henman first saw the Rolex clock at the central stadium and wondered what his mother Rolex was. Since then, he hopes to one day have his own Rolex watch. Thirty-two years later, Henman finally won the first Rolex watch. Its significance is far-reaching, and it is worth waiting for.
When he looked at his watch, his thoughts instantly returned to the scene when he was six with his mother in the stands. Mother keeps a photo of the day, and the ticket should be placed at home. When Henman was asked if he would like to share the story of the watch, he forwarded the message to his mother and asked her, ‘Do you remember?’ She replied, ‘I still remember it.’
