.Editor’s note: Hot on the heels of her imperious victory at the Adelaide Open, 2020’s Young Australian of the Year, Ash Barty, is continuing to carve her name into the annals of tennis legend, trouncing all of her competitors so far at the Australian Open with a spellbinding blend of grace and dogged determination. Barty is nothing short of a national treasure and an exemplar for how all athletes should go about their business, especially her fellow Aussie tennis players. Swiss watchmaker Rado recognises Barty’s greatness, and has been a long-term supporter of the tennis ace. The marque even created a limited edition watch in Barty’s honour to celebrate her meteoric rise to the rank of World No. 1. That watch is the Rado HyperChrome Ashleigh Barty Limited Edition, and in a very noble act of generosity, Rado has donated one of these limited edition timepieces, of which only 123 will ever exist, to Time+Tide’s “Watch & Act!” World Watch Auction in aid of the Australian wildfire crisis, and you can bid on that watch by clicking this link
The latest young star to join the ranks of Rado is the Australian tennis player Ash Barty, who despite being only 23 has already reached the position of women’s world No. 1. What is most exciting for us, and her fans around the world, is that she has collaborated with Rado to release a watch this year, bringing us the Rado HyperChrome Ashleigh Barty Limited Edition, a white-hot watch that matches perfectly with the uniform of Wimbledon, which was her first junior Grand Slam win. While we obviously love Ash Barty because she’s an Aussie, we also love that she represents what an Australian sports person should be, with her humble nature and hardworking attitude.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
