There has been unexplainable weather during this year’s winter season, from the unbearable cold fronts that came from nowhere to the never-ending snow. But cheer up, because the winter season will soon be over and spring and summer will be here in no time! We all know what the spring and summer months are all about too. It’s all about those special getaways to the relaxing beach, and for those that visit the ocean for diving know that it is important to have a watch especially made for diving.
Richard Mille is proud to unveil their new limited-edition watch, the RM 028 Americas, an exclusive and trendy but yet very funtional automatic dive watch for those adventurous diving trips in the ocean. The RM 028 is a 30-piece edition featuring red and white details on a dark black DLC titanium case. With a retail price of $82,000, what makes this watch an official diver’s watch is that it abides with ISO norms 6425, with a water resistance of almost 300 feet (30 atm) and a unidirectional bezel. Most of the intricate work is hidden by the 47-mm round case but the cutting-edge look that is associated with this brand is still present for those who are loyal fans of it.
If you are wondering how the water resistance is achieved, it is possible with the help of a three part case construction and 22 torque screws, with complete integration of the lugs into the case system. This configuration prevents any accidental dislodging of the bezel from its case while diving. The skeletonized automatic movement of the RM 028 utilizes a rotor with variable geometry, a major innovation of Richard Mille that allows the level of automatic winding to be adjusted to the user’s lifestyle via the setting of two 18-karat white gold wings.
The exclusive watch is set to be sold at the end of January by select retailers in North and South America. Visit Richard Mille to see the nearest location to score the limited-edition watch.
