To celebrate the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics, watch makers Swatch has created five special watches.

In keeping with the brand’s trademark playful and colourful style, three of the watches feature the five Olympics rings.

The motif is depicted either as circles over the watchface and band, or simply as dots that create swirling patterns, also around the band.

The remaining two are dedicated to the host country of Brazil. In one version, the distinctive colours of the national flag are used, while in the second, iconic Rio landmarks, like the Christ the Redeemer statue, are shown.

The Olympic Swatch watches are available at Rivoli stores across the UAE.
