As the Olympics come to a close this week, we shine the spotlight on one watch brand that we're seeing on more and more athletes' wrists: Richard Mille.
Golf made its return to the Olympics after more than a century, and one of the top contenders, Bubba Watson, was wearing a nearly $1 million Richard Mille watch during play. Too bad his 35-foot putt came up 29 feet short in a terrible stroke on the course in Rio. At least the watch on his wrist stood out.
In the track and field realm, Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake is on the run with a Richard Mille watch that bears his name. (Yes he, like the other Mille brand ambassadors, wears his watch during “play.”) Unfortunately, in last night's 100M races, Blake came in fourth — just not strong enough for a medal (Usain Bolt retained his title of the fastest runner ever recorded).
Stop in any time to see our great selection of Richard Mille timepieces.
