Richard Mille 59-01 Tourbillon Yohan Blake
who dictates that a luxury watch should be all formal in black or silver? nobody. speaking of which, if you are out to make a wrist-statement (and money is of no object), we bet the Richard Mille 59-01 Tourbillon Yohan Blake would definitely fit the bill perfectly and we couldn’t imagine why it wouldn’t with its the loud Jamaican yellow and green colorway. sporting an asymmetrical case of 50 x 43 x 16mm, this super luxe watch is not only designed for a sprinter but for one who wears his time piece on his right wrist (i.e. a left-handed dude). apparently, the watch is shaped to be aerodynamic to suit a human rocket like Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake and features a case crafted from lightweight composite material and a hand-wound tourbillon movement that’s built to take on huge shocks and G-forces experienced during a sprint. seriously, we didn’t think a sprinter would be wearing a watch when he is competing but then again, we may be out of touch with the tracks far too long to know the new ‘in’ thing of sprinting. another notable and likely a feature that probably only the owner would appreciate is the movement that bears the “beast bridges” that’s splayed out, looking much like a claw, signifying the sprinter’s trademark sprinting style: fingers wide apart as if they were ripping thought the air as he runs, or rather, rocketing down the track. the good news for you Scrooge McDuckian folks, the Richard Mille 59-01 Tourbillon Yohan Blake is a luxury watch that your money can actually buy. limited to just 50 pieces (we supposed, worldwide), this drool-worthy luxury time piece commands a super luxury car-like price tag of $620,000. a look at the ‘beast bridges’ after the break.
