Besides all the eye-catching performances and moments at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the watches that athletes were wearing have also been a highlight of the event. Many athletes have been tapped by watch brands as their ambassadors, with watchmaking and sport undoubtedly going hand in hand.
1. Mutaz Essa Barshim
Qatari high jumper and gold medallist Mutaz Essa Barshim wore the Richard Mille RM67-02 watch during his Olympic performance. The watch's lightness, thinness and ergonomics made it the perfect watch to wear. Its case, made from Carbon TPT and Quartz TPT, also contributes to the piece's wearability and boasts exceptional shock resistance.
The strap—the lightest Richard Mille has ever created—is seamless, non-slip and highly elastic, allowing it to perfectly fit the contours of Barshim's wrist. The RM67-02 is the lightest automatic watch from the brand's collection.
