The launch of a new Richard Mille watch is always quite the event. And the “RM 60-01 AUTOMATIC FLYBACK CHRONOGRAPH LES VOILES DE ST BARTH” does really stand out as it features different complications contained inside a round case. An unusual shape for a Richard Mille model…
During “Les Voiles de St-Barth Richard Mille”, St Barts’ breathtaking beauty is the incredible setting of the high-flying – and cutting-edge – regatta, which features sailing boats such as the Maxis and Super Maxis! On the programme: five days racing on diverse coastal courses and, in the evenings, some fun events to celebrate the sea and the regatta.
Les Voiles de St. Barth Richard Mille is more than just a competitive regatta: it represents the French way of life, the meeting of land and sea, a moment frozen in time. And that’s where the new edition of the RM 60-01 Automatic Flyback Chronograph Les Voiles de St Barth comes into play! This year, the new edition is limited to 80 pieces. And one of the watches will be sold and the profits will be given to many organizations of the island, as it was greatly affected by the pandemic.
A video on our YouTube channel will focus on this watch as we were lucky enough to get a glimpse of it when it made a stop in Paris. Some will say this watch is really massive. And it is with its generous 50 mm diameter. But it is because it exhibits a lot of information: second time zone indicator, chronograph, flyback, countdown, oversize date, months. And that’s not all: the bi-directional bezel includes a compass segment which four cardinal points work in both hemispheres. A rare instrument that you need to know how to use…
As always, the finishes are perfect and the materials used are very well crafted.
Wondering about the price? About €200,000. “About” because the indicative price of high-end watches is now given in Swiss francs excluding taxes since currency variations and the taxes of each country can lead to significant differences.
