Tiger Woods Signs with Rolex

Tiger Woods Signed by Rolex

Just recently we reported that Tag Heuer dumped Tiger Woods.  Less than two months later, Tiger has rekindled his relationship with Rolex.  According to sources, Woods and Rolex agreed to a deal that is at least five years in length.  Financial considerations were not disclosed.

It is a curious time for Rolex to sign Woods.  Rolex likes to associate itself with champions (Roger Federer, Phil Mickelson, etc.).  Tiger has been anything but a champion recently.  In addition, as we all know, Tiger doesn’t have the best reputation.  Maybe Rolex was able to land Tiger at an amazing discount – let’s be honest, Tiger’s asking price MUST be at an all time low.  Yet he still has many more years of golf ahead of him and it’s certainly possible that he will regain his dominating form.  Rolex may have just signed the best golfer of all time.  (Anyone think that there’s a morality clause in the contract?)

Buy low, sell high.  Right?


US Open Tennis- Who’s Your Watch Champion?

When it comes to US Open tennis, we’ve grown accustomed to watching famous rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal duke it out for the title of Champion. But this year there’s a new top seed in town- and his name is Novak Djokovic. With wins at the Australian Open & Wimbledon already under his belt, the Serbian superstar enters Monday’s tournament as “the man to beat.”

But, this isn’t a tennis blog.

So, say we were to put those technical playing skills aside- Who would be your pick to win the US Open championship of watches? Nadal’s $525,000 custom Richard Mille watch, Federer’s Rolex (of which he has several different models- “a crown for every acheivement”), or Djokovic’s…uhh…sweatbands??

1.      Novak Djokovic, Serbia, ??? Somebody get this man a watch.

2.      Rafael Nadal, Spain, Richard Mille

3.      Roger Federer, Switzerland, Rolex

Poll closes Friday at 3 pm ET
