Those of you with an interest for watches might recall the watch controversy that occurred in the London Olympics 2012. The tournament was fully endorsed by Omega and only their timepieces were allowed any media coverage. When sprinter Yohan Blake wore a distinct yellow and green Richard Mille during the 100 meter heats the Olympic Committee was infuriated. The timepiece which was worth $500,000 of course received loads of attention in the media and while the Committee very loudly spoke about fining Blake and Richard Mille they did not.
On the 23rd of January 2013 it was time to release the 2.0 version, the RM059-01 Yohan Blake. The design is sure to divide opinions and it is everything but subtle. The timepiece is designed for sprinting be it both aerodynamically and movement-wise. Brilliant if you run a 100 meters for a living. This is one of our fabourite sport watches.
