Tennis history was made in January when American
Serena Williams became the most prolific tennis player in the open-era. With an rose gold ladies Millenary strapped to her wrist, she defeated her sister Venus in two sets to clinch her seventh Australian Open title and a record-breaking 23 grand slam wins. The previous record of 22 wins had been held by German tennis star Ste Graf. In a novel move to embrace the Internet age, OMEGA launched a special edition timepiece exclusive to its social media channels in January. Received with much enthusiasm by watch connoisseurs, all 2,012 pieces of the Speedmaster “Speedy Tuesday” Limited Edition sold out within four hours of the campaign’s launch, prompting marketing efforts to be halted.
