Rolex makes time for Australian Grand Prix

Swiss watch manufacturer Rolex has extended its title sponsorship of Formula One’s Australian Grand Prix for a third consecutive year.

Melbourne’s Albert Park will host the opening round of the 2015 season on March 12-15.

Rolex has an established presence across the Formula One season having replaced fellow Swiss brand Hublot as the official timepiece and official timekeeper of the motor-racing series in December 2012.

“From the beginning, we have worked towards this being a long-term union and it’s superb to see that as we enter our third year those intentions are coming to life,” Formula One chief executive Bernie Ecclestone said. “It’s wonderful that such a prestigious brand will feature prominently throughout the 2015 season.”
