HEAD gave the world the Prestige Pro tennis racket in 1987 and it has been making legends for 30 years. With this racket, players like Goran Ivanisevic and Emilio Sanchez became legendary — and so did the racket itself.
The Prestige limited edition watch is a tribute to the Prestige racket and its legendary moments, where tennis legends made history.
The watch features an Italian design and Japanese (Seiko NH35) movement, and is available in five different dial colours: Black, Blue, White, Green and ‘Prestige’ (Black with red touches). This Prestige watch has a mechanical automatic winding movement that needs no battery.
As a limited series of 2017 pieces, each watch has a unique serial number and can only be bought during the Indiegogo campaign.
The combination of high quality materials, elegant design and the precision of the Japanese mechanical movement make it a timepiece worthy of it’s Prestige racket predecessor.
“If I have to pick one thing that made my career, it’s my racket and that’s Prestige. Somehow, this watch reminds me of those moments”. – Goran Ivanisevic
