I have reviewed other Richard Mille watches in the past, but on this video, I want to get into the RM 35-01 Rafael Nadal, designed after the professional, Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal. This lightweight watch is also know as the “Baby Nadal” because it's one third of the price as the actual Richard Mille tourbillon that Nadal wears during tennis matches (which is even lighter by the way!). The formal model of this RM is RM35-01 RAFA and the watch is a real heavy piece! And please don't take “heavy” literally. Quite the opposite. The watch is as light as a feather! Why is this watch so light? Because it is made from forged carbon. When the watch was designed for Rafael Nadal, it had to be extremely light for him to wear during tennis matches. As a result, the watch feels really comfortable on the wrist. As with most Richard Mille watches, many people are amazed at their extreme price tag. The RM35 is no exception. The watch's retail price is around $130,000 and you will probably not find a new one for less than $110,000 in the market because there are few of them out there. You may be able to find a preowned RM 35-01 for around $95,000, which is a good price for this particular model. The watch's strap is made out of Kevlar and Velcro...yes, you heard right, Velcro! A $100k watch with a Velcro strap! What is this world coming to?!? But that's Richard Mille for you; an ultra-luxury brand that I don't recommend for the inexperienced watch collector. A watch like the RM35 is for the collector with many watches who just wants to impress others with such an exceptional piece! Even though the Richard Mille RM35 comes with a special four-point shock system to protect the watch on the wrist of an athlete like Nadal's, that's exposed to a high level of shock and vibration, it is not full of complications like many expensive watches in the market. It is purely an all-out sport watch designed with comfort in mind. The watch is also manually wound. The watch feels like it has no dial. It has no numbers. You see the case, then the face with the glass, then the movement, and then the caseback, which is also forged carbon. That's it! On the backside it's carbon as well. It's got pretty much no dial. There is no dial there. As far as the Watch Game goes, the Richard Mille RM35 is a really light heavyweight champ! Does that make sense?!?

But now they have extended the partnership to the road car series of the supercar maker and to mark this they’ve just introduced a new version of the RM 11-03 limited to 500 pieces during the Geneva International Motor Show. Like the original RM 11-03, this is also an automatic flyback chronograph with 55 hours of power reserve, but it has a little sportier feel to it with the extensive use for the case of carbon TPT with orange quartz TPT inserts, McLaren’s identity colour, also used for the strap. In terms of design, there has been some little tweaks, for instance with the redesign of the push buttons and crown to match as much as possible some design features of the sport car as Mr Richard Mille and Mr Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren Automotive, expressed during the official launch ceremony.
Watchfinder & Co. presents: If you decided to build a watch, a really good one with some kind of complication, where every last piece—up to and including the smallest screw—was custom-made just for it, how much would it cost? Thousands? Tens of thousands? It’s hard to say at a guess, but this much is true: the Richard Mille RM011, a flyback chronograph in rose gold, costs £100,000. Let’s find out why.

http://www.crmjewelers.com – Richard Mille RM 59-01 Yohan Blake Tourbillon – The Beast! This is a short review of the Richard Mille Yohan Blake watch, that was first seen as a prototype on the wrist of the famous Jamaican sprinter during the 2012 London Olympics. That event caused a lot of controversy in 2012 since the official watch sponsor of the Olympics at the time was Omega! Despite the controversy, the Olympic sneak preview of the Richard Mille RM 59-01 triggered many online searches for the watch, which represented a lot of free advertising for the ultra-luxurious RM brand and also solidified its position even more on the horological map. It is interesting to point out that the RM59-01 was made for a left-handed sprinter like Yohan Blake, who is also known as “The Beast.” That nickname came about because of the running style of the Jamaican 100-m and 200-m sprinter. When Yohan Blake runs, he moves his hands through the air with his fingers spread apart, resembling a claw. This led to the addition of “Beast bridges” to the actual Yohan Blake Watch, which you can see spread out in a claw-like formation when you look through the crystal. The colors of the RM 59-01 are also appropriately the colors as the Jamaican flag. Price of the Yohan Blake Tourbillon The retail price of the Richard Mille RM 59-901 is $620,000, which is definitely not for the faint of heart. The steep price and the fact that the production of the watch was limited to 50 pieces, doesn't make the watch easy to find. The price you can buy it for will thus depend on finding a willing seller and negotiating a price with him/her. As a result, don't expect a lot of discount! The RM 59-01 and the Watch Game Like all Richard Mille watches, the RM 59-01 is a collector's piece that's very comfortable to wear. It is a watch that will definitely make a loud bang in the Watch Game. If you have money to spare and want to make noise with a sporty watch, the Yohan Blake might definitely foot the bill.
