Following up on the special edition RM 028 Orange Flash we told you about last week, today we are checking out another newly announced limited edition Richard Mille timepiece; the distinct RM 021 tourbillon “Aerodyne” or RM 021 Carbon for short.
Gentleman, get ready to break out those Black cards (or whatever color cards you super-rich guys are playing with these days, maybe Clear?), I’ve got something really special for you today. Possibly one of the rarest watches in existence (*pause for dramatic effect*) this kind of opportunity only comes along once in a blue moon. That’s right, just when you thought you’d never see it in your lifetime, I have here for you now what many deemed impossible; a highly legible Richard Mille timepiece.
If you want to instantly become the most popular person at the next watch aficionado GTG you attend (yes, for those of the uninitiated, that is a real thing) then simply utter these two words; Greubel Forsey. Pulses will quicken, pupils will dilate and a collective ‘pricking’ of the ears will be instantly detectable such is the allure of this incredible brand.
This morning I thought we’d take a quick break from the Baselworld previews and instead have a closer look at a wonderfully complex new timepiece from Roger Dubuis. The first in a new series of limited edition timepieces that pay tribute to the brand’s namesake founder, the Hommage Minute Repeater is a breathtaking mix of technical complexity and aesthetic beauty.
Sometimes as a watch lover you just want something simple and elegant, and of a course a little bit complicated. After all, you are still a connoisseur with a reputation to maintain. Enter the new Portugese Tourbillon Hand-Wound, a gorgeous new timepiece from IWC that has everything you need and nothing you don’t.
