Richard Mille revealed a new athletic watch this week, a new ultra-light tourbillon with a yellow, green and black colour scheme, just like the Jamaican flag. Unfortunately Richard Mille is not providing any specifics at this time, in a release announced this week that, due to Olympic rules, it cannot announce “his” name until three days after the 2012 Games’ closing ceremony. Any guesses? Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake, the current 100 metre World Champion was recently spotted wearing this very distinct watch while attending events in London. The brand says that its partnership with the sprinter will remain in place through 2013 while the brand develops a new calibre.
