Swiss Richard Mille booths you never really stop thinking about R & D department for breakfast. It must be steroids, they manage the trend makers for many years, one of the most recent examples is RM56, the first high-end watch completely out of sapphire. Years ago, are so, other brands are now just beginning to follow this trend. Do we look forward to another version of RM56 this year? Hell, we all know it’s time wow, introduce some ridiculous and new ones. Some absurd sapphires are 3 or 4 years ago.
Teamed up with Airbus Corporate Jets Richard Mille men’s watch wanted to create a complicated piece yet a new odd look for it. White ceramic bezel did just fine. Apart from it there are 5 different materials used for the casing, the movement and the crown. And it’s not just for the looks; ceramic used for the bezel assures for more rigidity and makes it pretty much scratch proof. Lithium Lital, used in the movement is also a material used in Formula 1 and Airbus.
Worth a $1’000’000 it’s definitely a collector’s piece. Unlike anything else, and maybe not RM’s prettiest watch due to a very busy dial. However the bezel is just to die for.
Secondly, we saw an already beloved watch, the RM11, but in a completely new look. Made of TPT Quartz it actually has a bit of a wooden feeling to it, that was painted by a red marker. But that’s what is so cool about it. The strap used here reminds us of the Yohan Blake strap, very easy to put on and take off, and very light.
