Luxury watch designer Richard Mille has released a new set of watches, the RM 67-02 High Jump and the RM 67-02 Sprint, ahead of the upcoming 2017 World Championships of Athletics in London. The posh yet sporty watches are inspired by two Olympic athletes, with colorways that match their national allegiances.

The RM 67-02 High Jump is dedicated to Mutaz Essa Barshim or Qatar, who received the silver medal in the event at the 2016 Olympics. The Sprint, meanwhile, is dedicated to Wayde van Niekerk, the South African sprinter who won the Olympic gold and set the world record in the 200 meters at the 2016 Olympics.

As the model numbers indicate, the two watches are functionally the same as one another, differing only in terms of their colors.
