RICHARD MILLE RM035 - To start with, let me say that Richard Mille truly takes for me a special place in the watch industry today. When one decides to discover its products and goes to have a look at them, it deserves admiration even if, in the mean time, it may raise some skepticism at pricing.
this watch has been the subject of many articles here and there. First because of its original materials, technical guidance and of the unusual special place it holds in the watch industry, but also because of a few incidents related to the case’s development.
As I said at the beginning, the brand often arouses admiration and interest, and sometimes criticism, but there are almost as many reasons to prefer a specific brand, a complication, or a particular material or style as there are watch lovers.
For me, like many, I’m attracted by the general quality of finishing, the technical mastery and the originality that can be brought to completion. I also like what is behind a brand or a specific timepiece: a creator’s philosophy (sometimes more of a “delirium”), the recall of history or of a particular event, or even the desire to express a scream, an idea, which the author has not seen in this area yet.
For my part, Richard Mille is a brand that can draw a cross in each of these criteria.
To this, I would add the one I have not mentioned because subjective: the aesthetic orientation. For me, this is another important criterion that leaded me toward this watch.
Following up on the highly popular RM 027 Rafael Nadal watch is this RM 035 Rafael Nadal timepiece. The RM 035 follows suit with its much more costly cousin by having a black case that is made out of an exotic material. This time it is magnesium-aluminum for the 40mm wide by 48mm tall case. Inside is a relatively simple manually wound movement with a lovely skeletonized design. It is also extremely light at just 4.3 grams. According to Richard Mille, it has a new type of free-sprung balance wheel with variable inertial that offers improved movement rate results and durability.
The attractive design is made to be light but less expensive than the $525,000 RM 027. Available soon the RM 035 will retail for $85,000.
It’s expensive, but for people who know their watches, they will be admiring this timepiece from afar. ‘A fisherman always sees another fisherman from afar’!! If you can, go try one today!
