Serena Williams is considered by many one of – if not the best – professional tennis players in the world. In 1999, she won her first major championship (“Serena Williams Biography”), and she has won 39 Grand Slam titles (Cerini, 2017). Her sister, Venus Williams, is also an excellent professional tennis player, and in 2017 Serena beat Venus at the Australian Open (“Serena Williams Bio”). Late 2017, Williams gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. and married Ohanian Jr.’s father, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in November (Dowd, Hahn, 2017).
Besides being known for her awesome tennis playing skills, Williams is a lover of Audemars Piguet Watches. Here are some facts about her association with the popular watch brand:
-Williams became a brand ambassador for Audermas in 2014 (Royce-Greensill, 2017). When asked in a 2017 Hong Kong Tatler interview why she decided to work with Audemars Piguet, she stated, “I am inspired by people who take pride in their work and Audemars Piguet’s watchmakers certainly do. We first met at Art Basel in Miami Beach a couple of years ago. I already knew the brand and it was great to be able to discover more of it at the fair, meeting the watchmakers and understanding where they come from, the brand values, and the hard work they put into creating their pieces” (Cerini, 2017).

-In 2016, Williams attended a beach party in Miami, Florida that was hosted by Audemars Piguet. One of the purposes of the party was to present the Reconstruction of the Universe project by artist Sun Xun. According to Vogue, at the party, Williams claimed that Audemars matched her “athletic-but-dressy tastes,” stating, “If you look at me, I am sporty, but I like to clean up and dress up.” (Remsen, 2016)
-At the 2017 New York Met Gala, Williams was seen at the event with her then-fiancée Alexis Ohanian rocking the Audemars Piguet Diamond Outrage. The watch has 65 carats of diamonds on spikes that are sticking out from the watch, and the watch-face is hidden under one of the spikes. (Royce-Greensill, 2017)
