Serena Williams shows off her $80,000 custom-engraved Audemars Piguet watch at Vanity Fair.

 The 23-time Grand Slam champion showcased her $80,000 Royal Oak "Jumbo" 50th-anniversary timepiece, featuring the inscriptions "Serena Williams" and "GOAT" on the back.

Renowned as a certified fashion icon, Serena Williams, known for her bold style, let her accessories steal the spotlight at a recent event hosted by Vanity Fair in collaboration with Swiss watch manufacturer Audemars Piguet.

Just last week, Serena made history as the first athlete to receive the "Fashion Icon" award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America, cementing her legacy in the fashion world.

Despite recently welcoming her second daughter, Adira, in October, Serena continues to embody her iconic status. She showcased her unique style by putting her twist on the popular sheer lace dress trend in a recent photoshoot shared on social media, opting for a vibrant purple Carolina Herrera lace-knit dress paired with a bright yellow wool coat and metallic silver platform heels, diverging from the typical goth-glam black attire.

Sharing moments from the event on Instagram, Serena expressed her excitement, posting photos with her husband Alexis Ohanian and their eldest daughter, Olympia.

At the event, Audemars Piguet stole the spotlight with its stunning timepieces, and Serena's custom watch was no exception. The former world No. 1, sponsored by AP since 2014, proudly flaunted her 50th Anniversary Royal Oak "Jumbo" extra-thin watch in 18-carat yellow gold, a prestigious timepiece retailing close to $80,000 USD. Serena's post provides a closer look at this exquisite accessory.

Last year, Serena received the watch as a gift from AP, in recognition of her outstanding performance at the US Open, where she sported her unique left-handed Royal Oak Offshore Quartz watch during every match. In homage to the tennis legend, Audemars Piguet engraved "Serena Williams" and "GOAT" (Greatest of All Time) on the back of the custom timepiece.

Expressing her appreciation for AP, Serena emphasized her authentic connection with the brand, stating, "AP was always my favorite." She stressed the importance of genuine brand affiliation over financial incentives, aligning with her values of authenticity and integrity.

Serena's remarkable style continues to garner recognition, as she is set to be inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame alongside civil rights activist Ruby Bridges next year, further solidifying her status as an icon both on and off the court.
