Richard Mille RM 59-01 Tourbillon for Yohan Blake

by Time&Style Staff

Multiple medalist Yohan Blake has teamed up with Richard Mille to develop a specially designed timepiece for sprinters. The 23-year-old Jamaican sprinter has been a partner with the brand since July 2012 and has enabled Richard Mille’s engineers to test their work first-hand. The result of this partnership is the RM 59-01. It is an aerodynamic and ergonomic tourbillon watch with a design that evokes the claws of “The Beast” (Blake’s nickname). Its colour scheme is also chosen to reflect on and pay tribute to Blake’s heritage. The RM 59-01 Yohan Blake tourbillon watch is available in a limited edition of 50 timepieces.
