The brand also has a history of partnering with global sporting events in the UK, including The Championships, Wimbledon, and the prestigious golf classic and third Major of the year, The Open Championship, as Official Timekeeper since 1981.

Rolex Testimonee and three-time FIA Formula One Drivers’ World Champion, Sir Jackie Stewart, who won the Formula 1 British Grand Prix in 1969 and 1971, said: “It will be a big weekend for British sport and for Rolex, with Wimbledon also concluding on the same day as the race. I look forward to being a part of Rolex’s on-going support of sporting excellence.”
