Тази статия, заедно с новината към нея е за любителите на часовници от Strelki.info – Форум за часовници.

В събота вечер, един журналист от Саудитска Арабия, който почива на Миконос, току-що паркирал колата си в общински паркинг, стана първата им жертва. Според жалбата, един човек се приближи към него, като го заговорил и обездвижил и преди да успее да разбере какво става измъкнал от ръката му скъп швейцарски часовник Richard Mille на стойност 200 000 евро.

Според жалбата обирджията след това се качил на мотор, където го чакал негов съучастник и избягали в неизвестна посока.Полицията не изключва възможността да става дума отново за нашествие на италианската мафия на Миконос.

Ако сте истински блестящ познавач на часовниците, без съмнение ще сте чували за луксозната швейцарска марка Ричард Мил. Прецизната компания за часовници е основана през 1999 г. от самия Ричард Мил; известен тръгвец на бижута със стрелки, които е бил партньор с часовниковите легенди Audemars Piguets, насочени към най-високия клас
пазара за луксозни часовници.

Като се има предвид заглавието на тази статия, най-вероятно сте си мислили – ” Няма, евтин Ричард Мил, вие се шегувате, но този не е доста скъп?”

С най-скъпия екземпляр на Ричард Мил, се изчслява на над 2 млн. бринатски паунда, а за д сеа закупи по-евтин модел в гамата може да бъде трудна задача.

Имайки предвид това, нека да се заемем с въпроса за ума на всички …
Защо часовете на Ричард Мил са толкова скъпи?

За да започнете, материалите, използвани във всеки часовник “Ричард Мил”, са наистина несравними. Корпусите се произвеждат само с помощта на злато и титан, като се смесват в някои въглеродни и кварцови инфузии, за да се даде друго ниво на качество и устойчивост на щастливия собственик.

Часовниците на Ричард Мил наистина показват класа си в своя новаторски дизайн – използвайки типа инженерство, който обикновено се наблюдава във Формула 1 Автомобили и Аерокосмически проекти. Марката винаги работи за натискане на границите, като използва изкривени повърхности за микрометрична прецизност.

И понеже екстериорите може да ви се сторят недостатъчни, Ричард Мил е сред пионерите новаторски механика от 21век, за да превърне времето в истинска форма на изкуството.

С гамата на Ричард Мил, която поставя нов стандарт в луксозното часовникарство, наистина не е изненада, че те могат да имат толкова висока цена на етикета си.

Ето част от моделите с обяснение на английски език и цена към всеки:

Richard Mille RM 005

 

At around £35,000 pre-owned, the RM 005 is a popular choice at the lower end of the Richard Mille range and a great place for us to start. Most often found in Titanium or Rose Gold, the piece comes in at a modest 38 x 45mm size with a classy leather strap to finish.

Due to its popularity, you may be able to find some special edition models on the market, specifically the Felipe Massa edition – but as always, expect to pay a little more.

 

Richard Mille RM 007

 

With it’s White/Rose Gold case and Sapphire dials, the RM 007 is not short of premium features. Whilst this watch has no James Bond relation, finding one is just as hard with not many left in circulation.

Where they can be found, expect to shell out around £30,000 for a pre-owned model. The RM 007 is a great way to bag yourself a Richard Mille at a relatively affordable price.

 

Richard Mille RM 016

 

Another popular item found at the lower end of the Richard Mille range is the RM 016. This piece is known worldwide as the ‘Ultra Thin’ due to its paper-like design. At only 8.25mm thick, it truly lives up to the nickname and comes in Titanium and Rose Gold.

At around £30,000 pre-owned, those with a thinner wallet can also get their hands on a Richard Mille with the RM 016.

Richard Mille RM 010


For our next piece, our wallets need to start getting a little bigger to consider the Richard Mille RM010. This watch has the classic Richard Mille look and feel with precision engineering at its heart. Supported with a carbon fibre flange, this watch comes in 3 varieties for Rose Gold, White Gold or Titanium.

Brand new, these watches will set you back anywhere up to £90,000 for the most premium version. If you are happy to go pre-owned, a great deal can be found for a RM 010 at around £45,000. Either way, quality and style are assured with this staple timepiece.

 

Richard Mille RM 030

 

Moving along the range we come to the Richard Mille RM 030. The 030 was designed with performance in mind with its sandblasted, grade 5 titanium makeup. Such is the popularity of this watch, many different special editions has been released, helping to make it a true collectors items.

Depending on the edition you decide to go for, the RM 030 will set you back anywhere up to £150,000 brand new. If you are looking for something a little cheaper, try going pre-owned to get the price down to around £75,000.

 

Richard Mille RM 002

 

We are now really starting to move up the ladder in the Richard Mille collection, bringing us nicely to our next piece, the RM 002. As with the RM 010, this watch is a staple of the Richard Mille philosophy, combining intricate design with top notch materials to guarantee the best in quality.

The RM 002 uses a Tourbillon movement which utilises intricate mechanics to ensure timekeeping is kept accurate throughout its life. Tourbillon watches don’t come cheap and the RM 002 is no exception.

To grab an RM 002 new will set you back a mere £250,000 – that’s enough to buy a family home in the UK! If you don’t have quite this much available to spend on a gift, a pre-owned model can be snapped up for around £150,000. Bargain, right?

 

Some Honourable Mentions

 

Whilst we have taken a look at the pieces at the lower end of the Richard Mille range, this article wouldn’t be complete without considering the heavyweights. Richard Mille is known for it’s groundbreaking wristwatches – let’s have a look at the best deals….

 

Richard Mille RM 50-03

 

At the beginning of this article, we compared a Richard Mille watch to the engineering magnitude of a Formula 1 car, that wasn’t just a fancy comparison. In collaboration with McLaren F1, Richard Mille created the RM 50-03. This premium wristwatch has put them in pole position with watch and racing enthusiasts alike.

Not only does this watch make you feel fast, it set a world record for the lightest mechanical chronograph watch ever made – all in, it comes to an incredibly light 40 grams. But that’s not all!  It was also the first watch to ever use the super durable material Graphene.

Unfortunately you will have to be on a racing drivers salary to get your hands on one of these. At the time of release it sold worldwide at a whopping £1 million. Since then the price has dropped (a little) with lucky buyers managing to pick one up for around £900,000.

 

Richard Mille RM 56-02

 

Whilst this article is designed to help you find a real bargain, it wouldn’t be fair to Richard Mille or really the world, to not mention this next piece. The RM 56-02 is currently the flagship piece in the Richard Mille range and in all honestly, it’s not hard to see why.

Whilst at first glance it may look like plastic, the RM 56-02 casing is made entirely of Sapphire. Not only that, Mille decided the inside needed to be revolutionary too, suspending the mechanisms within the watch using a pulley system of micrometer thick braided cable.

This pioneering design was first introduced in 2012 through the RM 56-02 siblings, the RM 56 and 56-01 models; it’s fair to say all 3 have truly taken the world by storm. The 56-02 price is staggering, something which you may need to sit down for – $2,020,000!

Not many of the 56-02 are on the market, but if you are looking for a great gift idea, you can grab a 56-01 at around £1,900,000.

 

We all have a dream wishlist when it comes to watches, will you be putting a Richard Mille on yours?
