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.

 

Richard Mille’s New 011 Black Kite

by Time&Style Staff

The release of the RM 011 Felipe Massa Flyback Chronograph “Red Kite” last summer has been followed by the brand’s release of the “Black Kite.” These limited edition timepieces compliment each other with their prestigious design.

The most recent RM 011 Black Kite, made from matte black DLC titanium, has a black rubber strap and tripartite, and is exclusively on sale in the Americas. The interior, including the inner bezel, pusher, numbers, hand and more are detailed in red gold. It also features technical innovations such as its skeletonized automatic winding and a 60-minute countdown timer.

The Black Kite is as stealthy as its namesake in the night sky. Only 30 pieces of this stunning chronograph are available.
