Richard Mille Yohan Blake Tourbillon

Yohan Blake Tourbillon
The newest member of the Richard Mille sports collection is the Yohan Blake Tourbillon RM59-01. Dedicated to London 2012 Olympic silver medalist Blake, with specific attention given to a right handed wearer like himself.

This piece is designed for a runner with its aerodynamic functionality inbuilt to suit a 100 meter sprint at extreme speeds withstanding all shocks and forces. This is due to the hand –wound tourbillion movement present in the watch which includes four bridges made of anti-corrosive alloys of aluminium, magnesium, silicon and titanium, designed in Jamaican colors yellow and green. This also represents Blakes patent ‘Beast-pose’ gesture known to be displayed by the athlete prior to every race.

The watch itself is actually quite thick between the positions of 2 and 5 o’clock. This extra thickness is said to prevent the torque limiting crown from rubbing against Blake’s wrist, providing him with extra comfort when wearing the watch.

The 50mm case is reptilian-styled comprising of injected carbon nanotubes protected by a sapphire crystal glass and an anti-glare coating. Limited to just 50 pieces, this exclusive watch is priced at a modest USD 620,000.
