Richard Mille Finally Shows The RM 65-01 Timepiece

Approximately five years after being announced, the Richard Mille RM 65-01 timepiece has finally been revealed. This particular watch is the brand’s most complex timepiece to be constructed and is built for everyday wear and tear.

The RM 65-01 features a high-frequency balance that allows for stopwatch calculations down to 1/10th of a second. There’s also a split-second hand allowing for intermediate times. Although this is an intricate and complex timepiece, it is very rugged as it is made up of Grade-5 titanium and Carbon TPT and has gone through a rigorous testing phase including shock, drop, decade-aging simulation, waterproof, and magnetic tests.

The RM 65-01 will retail for $305,000 USD.

Richard Mille Introduces A New Take On The Pocket Watch

Richard Mille has somewhat made a place at the top of the timepiece game in terms of what many have defined as to what luxury is. Whether it be Drake, Jay-Z, Meek Mill, or Pharrell, the Richard Mille watch has been made a status symbol of what success is.

Most of what we’ve seen from Richard Mille has been deduced to the wrist, until now. The popular Swiss timepiece maker has now introduced a new take on the pocket watch. The new RM 020 Tourbillon Pocket Watch is a reimagining of a popular mainstay from years ago, updated to the modern era.

Features include a carbon nanofiber composite baseplate that was molded at a temperature of 2,000˚C to ensure stability from a mechanical, physical, and chemical standpoint. The timepiece is finished off with a sturdy titanium chain and matching desk stand.
