Is This Ash Barty’s Number One Accessory?

On or off the court, the triple Grand Slam winner is never seen without it.

When we think of tennis, Australian sports star and Wimbledon winner Ash Barty is often the first player to come to mind.  

In case you need reminding, Ash held the position of number one in the world for an astounding 114 consecutive weeks before announcing her retirement from the game in 2022.

So when our tennis idol wears a new accessory, we sit up and take notice. Right now, it seems like the piece she can’t live without (aside from her racket, of course) is her striking new wristwatch.

The triple Grand Slam winner is rarely seen without one. In 2022, she embarked on a creative journey with her longstanding partner, Rado Switzerland, co-designing the Rado True Square x Ash Barty Limited Edition. 

Now, she’s turning her attention to the Rado Centrix collection, specifically the new 35mm Centrix Automatic Diamonds wristwatch. With gently rounded contours, state-of-the-art movements, and luxurious detail, the new Centrix collection embodies the simple elegance that Ash possesses on court.

In ace news, it’s also the perfect gift for the upcoming holiday season. Below, we break down everything you need to know about the glamorous new watch on Ash’s wrist.

Rose Gold Glamour

“I fell in love with Rado timepieces when I was quite young and bought myself my first Centrix as a reward after winning a tournament. It felt elegant and precise, and I still love to wear it now,” the tennis star shares.

Now, the brand’s new Centrix collection spins a modern twist on a timepiece that was first launched in 2010 with innovative design and aesthetic updates.

The Centrix Automatic Diamonds wristwatch is presented on a polished rose gold-coloured PVD-coated stainless steel bracelet with white high-tech ceramic middle links. Adding to the sparkle are 12 Top Wesselton full-cut diamond hour markers, ensuring the accessory is as eye-catching as the sports star herself.

For Ash, the new Centrix range “brings back happy memories of all my hard work leading up to winning a tournament and being able to reward myself with something I’d always wanted.”
