We know that sports and replica watches uk go hand in hand, and watch brands have long been tapping the world’s greatest athletes to become their ambassadors. Nonetheless, it is exciting to watch these athletes’ first-choice timepieces worn on their wrists in their greatest moments of glory—because they won the most important competitions, broke world records and brought back medals. Here are some of the best watches and their owners found at the Tokyo Olympics.
Mutaz Esa Bahim
Qatar high jumper Mutaz Essa Barshim is the gold medalist at the Tokyo Olympics, tied for first place with Italian Gianmarco Tamberi. The two have come a long way from injuries and setbacks, and they shared an exciting moment when the judge ruled that they could indeed be tied for first place instead of jumping out. Barshim has long been an ambassador for Richard Mille and owns the RM 67-02 named after him. The RM67-02 is very light due to its shell made of carbon TPT and quartz TPT. This watch is equipped with what the brand calls a comfort belt, which is a completely seamless and non-slip elastic strap, which was clearly demonstrated when Barshim wore the watch throughout the game.
Armand Duplantis, a Swedish pole vaulter born in the United States, is an Omega ambassador. He wears the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra “Ultra Light” watch, which is made of a strong and lightweight alloy called Gamma Titanium. The sports strap weighs only 55 grams. The inner movement is also made of titanium. Duplantis is the current world indoor record holder with a height of 6.18 meters. He won the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics and almost broke his world record on the way.
