This past weekend, Andy Murray claimed the U.S. Open tennis title, defeating current World #2 and Audemars Piguet Ambassador Novac Djokovic. Murray’s achievement is notable for several reasons, chief among them that he became the first British man in 76 years to win a grand slam singles final. Murray, currently #3 in the world behind Djokovic and Federer, is also an Ambassador for Rado, a prominent Swiss watch brand which pioneered the use of ceramics in watchmaking. In fact it was just a few months ago that Rado and Murray announced their alliance, as brought to you here at Perpetuelle.
A particularly amusing moment came shortly after the match when Murray could not find his Rado watch to wear for the trophy presentation ceremony (you can see short video of the moment here) — “I don’t have my watch” said Murray! But the disappearance was only temporary — and Murray hoisted the U.S. Open Championship Trophy wearing a black Rado D-Star 200 Chronograph.
Congrats to Rado and Murray!
