Often in watchmaking, there are timepieces that fall in the “practical” category, and then there are watches that exist in the “we made this because we can” category — the Richard Mille RM 25-01 Tourbillon Adventure falls in the later. Supposedly born from the friendship between Richard Mille and Sylvester Stallone, the RM 25-01 is a watch that would fit right at home on the wrist of Rambo.
The robust 55mm watch features a chronograph function, power reserve indicator, a tourbillon, magnetic-shielded movement, titanium/carbon TPT case, and a very appropriate, camo-rubber strap. In terms of “Adventure” features, the watch has ingenious additions like a detachable compass; that is mirrored on the inside and can latch down — much like a hunting case on a pocket watch. It also has a bubble level at the 4 o’clock, and lastly, an emergency compartment at 2 o’clock that holds water-purifying tablets. Priced at $983,000 USD, Richard Mille will only be making 20 examples of the watch, and it will be available for order at Richard Mille flagships worldwide.
