All this noted, thanks to its aforementioned Magic Mixture of pricing and recognizability, the RM011 became the most “go-to, f**k-all wealthy watch” of our time — and while the uncannily amazing wearing comfort and the equilibrium of style is what makes it the most grail Richard Mille for all, it may at this stage be a bit too ubiquitous (as far as a $150,000-dollar watch can possibly be). And so, I imagine there to be a growing group of buyers that desire all that Richard Mille as a watch new may provide, but without the prompt attention and all that comes with this. And that’s where a sleeper Richard Mille comes into the picture.The Richard Mille RM033 belongs to what’s an exclusive, although slowly expanding collection of Richard Mille watches: which of the curved ones. If you really, really know watches really nicely, then you will probably be able to tell from the other side of the dinner table that this can be a Richard Mille — but the absolute majority of people I have met, even people who are in the watch industry, could not tell that this was “that an RM. “The Richard Mille branding at 12 o’clock is nearly microscopic and while the large, futuristic looking Arabic numerals are extremely much an RM layout, they from afar I assume are difficult to tell apart from the busy looking, skeletonized movement directly behind them. There is another version of the RM033 with bold Roman numerals all around the dial — that is a more often seen iteration of the RM033 that I imagine a few more could have recognized from a distance.So, while Richard Mille’s tonneau shaped watches would be, instead deservedly, stated to be strings that lots of wear not just for themselves, but only as much for other people to see, the new round watches, and especially this very RM033, is the exact opposite of all that.At 45.70mm wide and available in titanium, or 18k white or red gold, the Richard Mille RM033 is just 6.30mm thick, all cased up. Although that renders it one fantastic thing to maintain the hand, such filigree dimensions also allow the RM033 to slip beneath top sleeves with ease. Wearability we will talk about in just a bit, but because we’re talking outside, let us take a closer look at the quality of execution.

Barely a day after it was stolen, Rafael Nadal’s $500,000, ultra-light Richard Mille RM027 tourbillon has been recovered, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Nadal was in Paris for the French Open, which he won, and he lost the watch, on loan from Richard Mille, after the championship match.
It turns out the culprit was a hotel barman who was arrested after police tracked his keycard access into Nadal’s room. The thief then led police to the stolen RM027 which he had hidden along a railway track.
