Richard Mille enjoys a close association with many of the world’s leading athletes. These brand new watches are known as the Richard Mille Watches China Replica RM 67-02 High Jump and RM 67-02 Sprint, for the athletes’ respective events.Before we talk about the watches, it is necessary to talk first about Richard Mille’s latest ambassadors. Mutaz Essa Barshim is a Qatari high jump pro and currently holds the national record and Asian record in high jump with a best mark of 2.43 meters. He even won a silver medal at the 2016 Olympics. He also holds the planet’s best time in the 300-meter. And that is not all, as he is also the sole sprinter in history to have run the 100 meters in under 10 minutes, the 200 meters at less than 20 seconds, the 300 meters in less than 31 seconds, and the 400 meters in under 44 seconds.Impressive athletes for sure, but definitely also impressive are the new Richard Mille RM 67-02 Sprint and High Jump watches. The RM 67-02 relies on the earlier Richard Mille RM 67-01 (hands-on here) and can be regarded as the sports version. The two RM 67-02 watches have exactly the identical motion as the RM 67-01, but have different instances which were designed particularly for the two athletes.
A couple of months ago I was loaned the Richard Mille Watches Uk Replica RM035 Rafael Nadal Chronofiable for a review that was published in The Peak magazine. As I wrote in the review, the RM035 is far, far from haute horlogerie. After all in the realm of Richard Mille, price is inverse to weight. The quality of finishing and watchmaking is inadequate for the price. Mechanically I struggle to see anything novel or interesting about the movement construction, except for the skeletonisation with the parts suspended by the lattice. As for finishing, the photos below tell the story, though it has to be said the watch pictured is a prototype. And unlike the RM009 Felipe Massa, the RM035 feels a bit plasticky, although the case is actually a ceramic-coated aluminium alloy. But, and this is a big “but”, the RM035 is a really, really cool watch, just because it is ridiculously and unexpectedly lightweight, and also because it’s ridiculously and expectedly expensive. It’s embarrassing to admit but true. Especially for someone who has everything – think gold Pateks and steel Rolexes as well as lots of disposable income – the RM035 is remarkably attractive. The rest of the close-up photos are below. – SJX
