What 8 of the Top 10 Highest Paid Women Athletes Wear On Their Wrist

Article from Roberta Naas on forbes.com

Earlier this month Forbes named the world’s highest-paid female athletes of 2015. 

Interestingly enough, most of those women are tennis stars – making their way to New York City this week in time for the US Open. A few of them also top out in other sports such as auto racing, golf and wrestling. Here, we bring you a quick look at the timepieces that eight out of the top 10  list of  highest-paid female athletes wear on their wrists.

Tennis great and highest-paid athlete, Maria Sharapova (with an income estimated at $29.7 million), wears a TAG Heuer on her wrist. She has the right to wear any TAG Heuer she prefers and has been spotted in the Formula 1 Steel and ceramic watch with diamond pave’ center dial and diamond bezel (approximate retail $5,300).

Serena Williams, top tennis star (ranking second highest on the income list at $24.6 million) who recently took the Wimbledon Singles title, wears the Audemars Piguet 37mm Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph watch. The rubber strapped timepiece houses a self-winding movement with date display, chronograph functions and 32 brilliant-cut diamonds on it (approximate retail price, $28,600).

The third-highest- and fifth-highest-paid female athletes on the list are also tennis greats and both are  Rolex brand ambassadors. Caroline Wozniacki, Danish tennis star ($14.6 million in income) and Serbian tennis star Ana Ivanovic ($8.3 million) have both been seen wearing a  Rolex COSC-certified chronometer Datejust — a signature timepiece for the brand with emblematic date window and magnifying lens.
