Richard Mille has just released two new watches inspired by track and field athletes, RM 67-02 High Jump and RM 67-02 Sprint. Both timepieces represent the sports version of the famous Extra Flat model launched in 2016.
Richard Mille (Richard Mille) is not the first time to create high-end watches inspired by sports stars. Let us remember the company’s partnership with Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal, French racing driver Simon Peggino and American golfer Christie Kerr. However, these newly released watches are really different for a simple reason: the RM 67-02 is the lightest self-winding mechanical watch Richard Mille has ever made. It weighs only 32 grams. In addition, High Jump and Sprint both use unique shells made of ultra-light, shock-resistant materials carbon TPT and quartz TPT.
RM 67-02 high jump
Richard Mille RM 67-02 high jump luxury watch is specially designed for Qatar track and field athlete Mutaz Essa Barshim (Mutaz Essa Barshim). This model uses the magenta and white design of the Qatar flag, which is as accurate and light as the Olympic medalist himself. In addition, it is very flat and flexible, and it is created in such a way that “Mr. High Jump” can wear it even in his jumps.
RM 67-02 sprint
The green and yellow Richard Mille RM 67-02 Sprint is dedicated to another Olympic medalist Wayde van Niekerk. This South African track and field athlete is currently the only sprinter to maintain the world’s best time in the 100, 200, 300 and 400 meters. This luxury watch is designed for athletes who face extreme speed challenges and is undoubtedly the perfect choice for the “Best Male Athlete in Rio 2016”.
The RM 67-02 model uses a 38 mm case, the bezel is made of quartz TPT, and the back cover is made of carbon TPT. The hollow dial shows the hand-decorated DLC-treated titanium bridge through the sapphire crystal glass. Each RM 67-02 luxury watch is powered by the internal self-winding mechanical movement CRMA movement, which is equipped with 25 jewels and operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Its thickness is only 3.6 mm. In addition, the RM 67-02 has a power reserve of 50 hours and is waterproof to 30 meters.
It is also worth noting that, as the wearing comfort and ergonomics of all timepieces have been a concern of the Richard Mille brand, the new RM 67-02 sports model is equipped with an ultra-elastic, non-slip and seamless strap. In general, the combination of this ultra-light material and the overall design of the new watch makes them almost a second skin for the wearer.
According to cheap Richard Mille, during the World Athletics Championships at the London Olympic Stadium, athletes will wear RM 67-02 high jump and RM 67-02 Sprint high-end watches.
