One of the most prestigious timepiece I've been able to put on my wrist so far, old but gold, the RM 59-01 Yohan Blake 🙌🏻 The work on the weight is absolutely disturbing with only a few grams, including a tourbillon and an incredible carbon nanotube case 💥
Oh where for art thou Richard? The Richard Mille RM002; this one with a white gold case. Saw this old friend at @Marcuswatches in London. There was a time when Richard Mille watches had an authenticity about them. A design philosophy based on Formula 1 race cars. A new form of movement design and finish. The watches were scalable on the wrist; as was the price (comparatively). Richard, at the time, declared he was uninterested in watch complications that were superfluous to performance. It's a long way removed from current offerings that have signs that whirl around to try and tempt the object of your desire - although if all it requires is a spinning message on your Richard Mille watch - it says little about person concerned. Or the more recent watch that has micro graffiti art. Graffiti is an act of vandalism: it defaces - and true to form any finishing that is part of the watch is then spray painted over. It's a long way removed from a racing machine on the wrist and a long way removed from the performance wrist watch that was the mantra of brand. Marcus is selling off his Richard Mille watches - including this one - at a discount. Which is a shame. #watches#watchesofinstagram#watchoftheday#watchnerd#watchgeek#watchporn#watchmania @milleaholics #richardmille @watchesbysjx @puristspro #rm002#racingmachineonthewrist
Unique! And unseen for some time. The original RM014 Perini Navi. Introduced in 2006 at Perini Navi Cup, Porto Rotundo, Sardegna. It was, for want of a pun, a change of tack from Richard Mille. Where as the first five years had concentrated on the link with F1 cars, this was Richard designing a watch based on the most technologically advanced yachts that are the siren's of the seas. With the new special series RM014's, in ceramic and carbon, it is worth noting the finish on the RM014. As with the yachts, the bridges and struts were highly polished, the gear wheels resembled pulleys, and the top bezel was lined as if a deck. Sharp eyed Richard Mille enthusiasts will note that the five pronged screws were replaced with hexagonal Allen key versions. On the production version, the five pronged screws were used as with all other Richard Mille watches. There was no "Perini Navi" name badge on the left of the dial on the prototype either. To my mind the Richard Mille Perini Navi series represents some of the highest movement finishing for RM watches; as with the second to none finish on the yachts. Because of the different types of finish on the movement parts, the movement itself has extra depth in appearance.

@Harrods looking at two great limited pieces from RM. The first being the RM 030 Le Mans Classic, limited to 100 pieces. A great piece to pay tribute to the race with the white ATZ ceramic and titanium case and an NPTP carbon crown. The second piece is the RM 029 Yellow flash which is a Boutique edition limited to only 30 pieces cased in titanium.
