A mechanical watch to be worn while rehearsing golf? Isn’t that something that everyone knows to be risky? All things considered, if you’re discussing normal mechanical watches, this assertion is totally evident. Don’t wear a programmed watch while playing golf! Be that as it may, with regards to Richard Mille, we’re not before usual timepieces… Not at all! As we’ve seen with Rafael Nadal or Bubba Watson , the watches of the brand can oppose to nearly everything, even Bubba’s powerful drive. The watch that is committed to him comes in another emphasis: here is the Richard Mille RM 055 Bubba Watson All Gray Boutique Edition.
In 2014, Rafeal Nadal won Roland Garros with a super light tourbillon on the wrist (the Richard Mille RM 27-01 to be exact, with its movement weighing 3.5 grams). In 2015, he was not that fortunate at Roland Garros but rather his watch, the RM 27-02 Tourbillon , was somewhat great. Bubba Watson, one of the main 5 golfers on the planet, additionally has his own Richard Mille, the RM 055 (a watch we checked on in its traditional white edition a year ago) – and not surprisingly, this watch has been created to be worn and tried in genuine conditions and not to be another exhibit watch. So to say, the games arranged Richard Mille watches are amazingly safe, and regardless of whether they’re coming with sensitive skeletonized developments or delicate tourbillon confines (at any rate we thought tourbillons to be delicate), some can assimilate up to 5000 G and oppose extraordinary shocks.
The Richard Mille RM 055 Bubba Watson – a.k.a Baby Bubba Watson, as there’s likewise another and more complicated edition with a tourbillon, the RM 038 – isn’t however safe as Nadal’s yet it very well might be still a serious insane watch that can oppose up to 500 G (a figure that is hard to envision or comprehend yet a power greater than 50 G can make outrageous harms the body or cause death…). Nonetheless, when Bubba drives a golf ball, the vibrations sent from the golf club to his wrist and hand are high and the obstruction of the watch ought to be that high as well. That’s the motivation behind why the development is held by 4 safeguards that make a connection between the outside structure and the actual development, so it’s ensured against (practically) all vibrations. Along these lines, even with a particularly (4.3 grams) and sensitive development, the watch won’t be harmed by its wearers – or its acclaimed wearer, Bubba Watson, one of the most impressive hitters on the PGA Tour.
As you can see, the development is completely opened with the extensions and baseplate made in evaluation 5 titanium, covered with dark PVD. The completion is made up to Haute Horlogerie principles: hand cleaned inclined points, grain finish on straight parts, wet sanded by hand on titanium parts, shined turns, screw spaces and screws angled and polished. Calibre RMUL2 brags 55h hours power hold on account of a twofold barrel instrument that helps improving force dependability by diminishing pressing factor and rubbing on the gears.
For 2015, we see another edition – the first featured a full white case made of fired and rubber treated titanium. The Richard Mille RM 055 Bubba Watson All Gray Boutique Edition, as demonstrated by its name, includes a monochromatic look – and the notorious RM plan, a 3 sections tonneau formed case held by 20 titanium spline screws. Its bezel is made of shot-impacted titanium carbide (a titanium and carbon alloy with a hardness of 1450 Vickers – when traditional titanium is at 300 Vickers and rubies at 3000 Vickers) hence guaranteeing extraordinary strength against stuns and scratches. The remainder of the case – caseband and caseback – is made in shot-impacted evaluation 5 titanium. To complete the all dark plan, the Richard Mille RM 055 Bubba Watson All Gray Boutique Edition includes a dim elastic strap.
