17 Jul Richard Mille Announces The RM 029: A New Limited Edition Le Mans Timepiece
Le Mans, one of the most iconic racing experiences gets an expensive new way to celebrate the racing Mecca.
Richard Mille has stepped in to develop the Richard Mille RM 029 Le Mans Limited Edition, a beautiful timepiece, rich in colour and honouring the rich heritage in Le Mans.
Richard Mille has quickly become the watch of choice for most high profile racing drivers as of late. Seeing some of the fastest people in the world sporting the modern timepieces.
Enter The Richard Mille 029 Le Mans
I mean, the timepiece is stunning. It may be one of the best looking racing timepieces to come out in recent years. The outer titanium 40.1mm by 48.15mm casing hugs the wrist as the beautiful deep green and racing stripe gives the first impression. The bright orange on the crown breaks up the colours nicely and adds that added flare to the overall experience.
In true Le Mans’ fashion, the watch sports a tastefully integrated 24-hour scale around the 2 o’clock position and a date window at the 4 o’clock marker.
This desirable racing timepiece sports the high-tech Calibre RMAS7 in-house skeleton movement. This movement in particular is an automatic movement that sports a very reasonable 55-hour power reserve and 28,800 bph beat rate.
The Bottom Line
This is a gorgeous watch. I absolutely love the colours, racing hints and contrasting crown to round out this extravagant piece. This is the type of watch that even racing drivers will stop you and ask about. The investment for this timepiece will set you back $176,000 MSRP.
