Newsletter Time for sport

With more than the usual controversy, the Olympic Games get under way this week in Rio de Janeiro. We mark the occasion with a sporty week on WorldTempus.

We start the week with a joyful “Happy Birthday” to Switzerland today, since 1st August is the national holiday and the country’s population will be brunching their way through the day before tonight’s countless fireworks displays. WorldTempus coverage continues uninterrupted, however, with our weekly newsletter reaching you as usual to announce that we kick off the week with an interview with Denis Giguet, who recently returned to work for MCT, the brand he founded in 2007. He tells us what it feels like to go back to the roots.

What would the Olympic Games be without its official timekeeper? Sure, there are big bucks and huge TV audiences involved, but without well over a century of innovation in timekeeping the sports spectacular would be a lot harder for spectators or television viewers to follow. From tomorrow we build up to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which start on Friday, with some sports related articles. After getting ourselves in the mood with a team pedalo trip out on to Lake Geneva last week, we take a look at the watch brands to look out for in Rio, review a selection of the latest diver’s watches and analyse the medal contenders in the Sports Watch category at this year’s GPHG.

Our daily summer competitions also continue, still with over a month to go, with plenty of great prizes on offer. Today, for example, you can win a high-end mechanical watch winder from RDI.
