Hands-On With Richard Mille RM 028 Diver In Red Gold Men's Replica Watch

Strangely enough, I had little trouble wrapping my head around cable-suspended movements, sophisticated tourbillons inexplicably worn during top-tier tennis matches, or wristreplica watches with mechanical G-force sensors, even. The Richard Mille RM 028 Diver Replica in red gold has, rather unexpectedly, become the first Richard Mille that I feel sticks out from the complex, but unique parallel universe that Richard Mille replica watches have carved out for themselves over the years.

If you want me to go on about the price and why these cost so much, you’ve come to the wrong place – these replica watches live in a niche that they themselves created. So, if anything, they have earned it. And if they weren’t where they are, another brand would delightfully take their place in a heartbeat. More to the point though, if you for a moment think that any replica watch priced over, say, a few thousand bucks isn’t a self-indulgent exercise in excessive spending, then I’ll call you naive at best; or a hypocrite at worst. However, once someone’s soul – and accountant – is prepared to spend $100k+ on a Richard Mille, I’m not quite sure why anyone would get this particular replica watch… Having worn the RM 028 in red gold for a few days has not convinced me otherwise and here’s why that is.

We’ll talk about positives soon enough, but I’ll cut to the chase and say that what defines Richard Mille replica watches, in my mind at least, after having seen and photographed several dozens of very different models and done long-term reviews on two rather unalike pieces, are the following basic principles: lightness, absolute wearing comfort, an inimitable aesthetic, and cutting edge execution. The Richard Mille RM 028 in red gold ticks only that latter category, in my book, but misses out on the others in comparison not to other replica watches, but to other Richard Mille replica watches specifically. Because, let’s face it, once you want an RM, the competition for your next purchase is shared between the brand’s replica watches only.

First, let’s talk weight. I kept adding “in red gold” to the replica watch’s full title above and I’ve done so precisely because it makes a world of a difference when compared to the RM 028 that is also available in lightweight titanium. In other words, this particular replica watch is laughably heavy as in it baffled – and amused – me greatly when I felt its ostentatious heft. I’d say close to 180 grams – but I could be wrong, and I’ll confess to not having my kitchen scale around yet once again. Having handled countless gold replica watches before (this one at 47mm wide and 14.60mm thick is rather large) it still dwarfs everything else I’ve handled this side of a replica watch in solid platinum with a platinum bracelet. It’s also a notable hint at the trustworthiness of the ever more often echoed rumors of hollowed out gold cases becoming an increasingly more common practice in this industry.

Because gold, when it’s solid and legit as it is here, is indeed heavy AF, and this replica watch with a titanium, partially skeletonized, merely 30.25 by 28.45mm wide and 4.33mm thick titanium (!) movement really gives you an idea of how much “all gold” cases should actually weigh. It’s genuinely ridiculous. “So wait, this replica watch having a proper, all gold, three-piece case is somehow a bad thing?” In this case I’ll say yes to that, because we are looking at a Richard Mille – not a Royal Oak. If you look at the overall direction of Richard Mille, the focus of their super high-end pieces on ultra lightweight has trickled down into less complicated replica watches like this RM 67-02, as being astoundingly light has become one of the trademarks of the brand.

As such, buying a gold Richard Mille, and especially one this outrageously heavy not only by RM standards but broader Swiss replica watch industry standards too is, in my mind, a lot like buying a Ferrari with solid gold body panels. Sure, the “added value” and easy recognition of gold will be there both in case of the Fezza as much as it is present with this RM 028. But when it comes to such brands with what is an unbeatable focus on performance, I simply don’t see the point in throwing all those achievements out the window for the sake of bling. Speaking of which, I’ll add that another specialty that Richard Mille replica watches share with but a few out there in this segment is the stealth element – meaning that, yes, everybody exposed to a 1%er lifestyle will recognize it, but at the same time it will fly under the radar of the plebs with ease… But this slab of gold does away with all of that.

With lightness out the window, the next thing is “absolute wearing comfort.” First things first: the Richard Mille RM 028 Diver in red gold is the most comfortable replica watch I’ve ever worn in this size and weight segment (47mm wide, 15mm thick). Frankly, the RM 028 handles its weight superbly – and, as I have said in previous Richard Mille hands-ons and reviews over the last several years, I cannot fathom why other luxury replica watchmakers (with triple the ego of RM) continue to struggle in this department so badly and so often, when a fresh brand can pull it off with such excellence. In my experience, wearing comfort in a replica watch is primarily defined by: weight, shape of lugs and caseback, integration and material of the strap, plus type and execution of the buckle. “That’s it?” Yeah, that’s all – and most all Richard Mille replica watches I’ve ever worn are a case study in great replica watch design. This brings me onto a side note here. There lies a little (rather never) talked about reason behind why some ultra high-end replica watches are seen more frequently worn and favored by their owners and why their apparent popularity is greater than their percentage-wise presence on the market. You guessed it right, it’s wearing comfort. I’d go out on a limb and say the average Richard Mille owner has more than a handful of other impressive replica watches in his collection (ladies arguably not so much given the pathetic selection of impressive ladies’ replica watches that the greater industry as a whole has to offer in comparison to what’s available to men… Richard Mille has been really pushing the envelope with ladies’ replica watches, but that discussion is for another time). And yet, it’s always the same low number of ultra high-end brands that we see worn in places with peak concentration of luxury replica watches – and again, that’s not because other fantastic-looking or exotic replica watches aren’t being purchased, but rather because they stay in the vaults either because they are anywhere from mildly to hideously uncomfortable to wear or because their value, unlike that of most replica watches by Richard Mille and a few other brands, drop yet more alarmingly had they seen a bit of wear. Value retention on RM replica watches is extremely good on the core pieces – but also on basically most all other references as well, apart from the square RM 016. If you disagree, I’d suggest shopping around on Chrono24 or wherever you see fit.

Richard Mille RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman Replica Ladies Watches

Though known for its super high-end, sporty-looking timepieces that are high-performance and technically-driven, luxury replica watch manufacturer Richard Mille has entered the haute joaillerie replica watchmaking space with the women’s RM 71-01 Automatic Tourbillon Talisman Replica. 10 versions of the RM 71-01 have been designed, limited to only five made of each design.

“We are known for our incredibly technical, high-performance replica watches that draw inspiration from the automotive and aeronautics industries, even though women’s replica watches have represented a considerable percentage of our sales for several years now,” stated Richard Mille. “That said, we needed a modern, creative and talented young woman to inject new energy into our status quo and take the women’s collection to new heights. It was Cécile Guenat, the daughter of my friend and business partner Dominique, who met this challenge by overcoming technical obstacles, freeing herself from consensus and establishing a unique and resolutely contemporary style.”

With a background in high-end jewelry, Cécile—now Ladies’ Collection Director—was inspired by a bevy of different artistic styles, including Art Deco, Bauhaus and even African. “My work is the fruit of very different influences, sometimes unexpected or improbable,” the young creator began. “I had an idea of what I wanted from the start and I designed a moodboard from my drawings and image searches, because anything that pops into my head can be of interest.” She also emphasized the skeleton movement in the case setting and engraving. With three years of development, her 10, innovative designs of course, incorporate the technical elements that Richard Mille has become so well-known for. It uses the first ever tourbillon movement crafted in-house—the Calibre CRMT1—as well as a new, slim, automatic mechanism that is both incredibly light in weight and high performance, combining diamonds, mother-of-pearl, black sapphires and onyx. Visually speaking, the 71-01 is an eye-catching stunner. And just as its name suggest, we’re certain that the 50 lucky buyers of the replica watch—will enjoy the good luck that each of these highly coveted, magical timepieces will bring.

Richard Mille RM53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough Replica Watch

Thus far at SIHH 2018, no other replica watch has given me more of a visceral response than the sexy and expensive new Richard Mille RM53-01 Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough replica watch. Ironically, neither the close-to-a-million-dollar price nor the wildly detailed and visible movement are responsible for the sense of “replica watch lust” I experienced. It also isn’t the RM53-01’s friendly color combination or modern, masculine look that are the main points of my focus. In truth, the RM53-01 is precisely the type of replica watch we expected from Richard Mille at the show.

More interesting for me is that I have no particular familiarity or interest in the sport of polo – for which the Tourbillon Pablo Mac Donough was conceived to survive. This is actually the second (and more interesting) polo replica watch Richard Mille produced in collaboration with the popular South American polo player. Mac Donough’s first replica watch by Richard Mille was also designed to survive impacts common in the aggressive equestrian sport. The first replica watch was almost entirely covered in titanium with only small windows for the time and a view of the tourbillon. For the RM53-01 it was a specific point by Richard himself that the movement be very visible. So how else can you protect against impacts while also allowing one to enjoy the movement? Richard Mille attempts to effectively answer this question in two ways.

The first way is to incorporate a version of their movement suspension cable system. Introduced in an earlier Richard Mille replica watch for tennis player Rafael Nadal, the movement suspension system uses a series of two tiny metal cables on 10 pulleys and is held tight by four “suspensioners” to suspend the mostly titanium manually-wound tourbillon-based movement. Thus, cables absorb a lot of the shock that the replica watch might experience if knocked around. Rather than physical shock going into the movement and likely breaking it, the cable system absorbs a good deal of dangerous vibrations. Seeing how cool the tiny cables are to view is another pleasure unto itself. Second, for the first time Richard Mille has developed a replica watch with a laminated sapphire crystal. The concept is similar to how safety glass for cars works. There are two pieces of sapphire crystal, which are laminated together with a clear adhesive film. Just by looking at the RM53-01’s crystal you wouldn’t know anything is different about it – and yet, it’s perhaps one of the most durable, super expensive replica watches available.

Wearing the RM53-01 on your wrist confirms just how important weight (or the lack thereof) is for luxury timepieces today. Sure, the feeling of a heavy gold replica watch is still very much real, but when it comes to exotic sport replica watches consumers want performance. In many instances high performance sport replica watches benefit from being light. Not only are they hard to notice on your wrist, but for a demanding athlete, removing all extra weight can mean the difference between winning and losing. Richard Mille isn’t claiming record-setting lightness for the RM53-01 (they have other models for that), but I can tell you that despite the relatively large size of the replica watch, it has an extremely light touch and feels like almost nothing is on your wrist while wearing it. It isn’t hard to admire the replica watch off your wrist either. Richard Mille again uses TPT carbon for the case material, which is a layered form of carbon that is durable and really good looking. The RM53-01 case is 44.5mm wide, 49.94mm tall (lug-to-lug) and 16.15mm thick (water-resistant to 50m). The complicated case design mixed with the interesting strap system (with the effective but ironically non-luxury Velcro closure system) makes for an apt frame to show off the symmetrical and visually engaging in-house movement.

Powering the replica watch is a manually-wound tourbillon-based movement which offers just the time. It operates at 3Hz and has about two days of power reserve. As I said above, most of the movement bridges are in titanium, and the design of the movement is excellent because Richard Mille went out of their way to make it symmetrical, as well as a bastion of fine details for us horological enthusiasts out there. What sells the RM53-01 is its persistent following of Richard Mille’s core values that make modern luxury sports replica watches exciting and fresh. It is a very fun toy with a price that will leave most of us feeling as though no matter how good we have been, only very rich boys will get to sit down at Richard Mille’s table and share his creations.

Richard Mille RM 61-01 Baby Blake Luminous Skeleton Replica Watch

Much like the Richard Mille RM 35-01 Rafael Nadal replica watch, the Richard Mille RM 61-01 Yohan Blake watch replica is a greatly simplified version of the original, hence the ‘baby’ reference.

In fact it is so light that you will likely even forget you’re wearing a watch, which is almost disconcerting for something that costs as much as a top-of-the-range luxury sedan. That being said, one glance at that complex dial and you’ll be reminded instantly just how much technology has been packed into the tiny little package on your wrist.Not surprisingly the lightweight construction of the RM 61-01 means that it wears extremely comfortably on the wrist.

t’s not all bad news though, in fact there is quite a lot to like about the new mens Richard Mille RM 61-01 replica watch, starting with the case. In the original, the 50.24mm x 42.7mm case was made of a translucent composite that was injected with carbon nanotubes, giving it a distinctive yellow ‘fleck, which I must say I found rather unattractive.

And by simplified, I mean that although they bear a passing resemblance to their elder siblings, they don’t boast anywhere near the same complexity. Arguably this is somewhat disappointing from watch-making point of view, however it is great news in terms of making the price point more attainable (relatively speaking of course, it is still a six figure watch after all!)

Speaking of the dial, you will notice it has also been toned down somewhat. The four high-tech bridges that streaked across the dial of the original RM 59-01, which some likened to the claw marks of a beast, have now been reduced down to just two, giving the watch a far less dramatic look.

For the new model, the case dimensions remain unchanged however it is now made from TZP black ceramic, a low-density material constituted of 95% yttrium-stabilised zirconium which is highly scratch resistant. The caseband meanwhile is constructed from NTPT carbon, a material composed of multiple layers of parallel filaments obtained by dividing by dividing carbon fibers. The end result is a hard-wearing, extremely light watch with a dark case that beautifully contrasts with the bright yellow and green of the dial and strap.I

This also means that far more of the movement – the RMUL2 – is visible, which is a good thing because its suspended, skeletonized construction is really quite fascinating to observe in detail. In fact it is possible to hold the Swiss-made Richard Mille men's replica watch up to light and see clean through to the other side – very cool!

Show You The Richard Mille RM 63-01 Dizzy Hands Mens Replica

From time to time, High Quality Replica Watches like to free us from the temporal demands our timepieces can place upon us, because every now and then, we all need to lose track of time. In years gone by, independent replica watchmakers Andreas Strehler and Thomas Prescher created wristreplica watches that told time only on demand – to learn the current time, you had to press a button. In 2011, Hermès gave us Le Temps Suspendu, which kept time until the  press of a button caused time to stop. This year, Richard Mille Mens Replica adds his own creative twist to this genre with a rare round replica watch known as the RM 63-01 Dizzy Hands.

Mille says his new creation draws its inspiration from the first lines of a poem entitled Le Temps, written by Gérard de Nerval, a grand exponent of the French romantic tradition of his day:

Time does not surprise the wise, but of Time the wise laughs, as only he knows how to use it.

The Dizzy Hands keeps time normally, until the pusher in the center of the crown is depressed once. At that point, the sapphire glass dial begins to slowly rotate counterclockwise while the hour hand moves clockwise, both at different speeds. Neither moves quickly, so the dance is a slow one, yet the motion renders the time display, and indeed the position of the dial, quite incorrect. This frees the wearer from the bonds of time, hopefully enabling him to pass the next unmeasured period without a care. When the joyous interval comes to an end, the owner simply depresses the pusher again and the dial and hands assume the positions required to display the current time.

The mechanism powering the RM 63-01 is caliber CRMA3, and it is a completely new movement developed by Richard Mille’s engineers in Les Breuleux. They reinvent principles taken from chronograph design to achieve creative results by separating the hour and minute functions completely from one another.
