Rolex’s special relationship with Roland-Garros as Premium Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch was inaugurated in 2019. The tennis crème de la crème has gathered at this famous venue in Paris since 1928 for a Grand Slam® tournament whose origins date back even further, to 1891. The slow pace and high bounce of the ball on the red clay surface produces long, enthralling rallies and is considered one of the most demanding events, mentally and physically, on the circuit.
