NFL star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. recently flexed his Richard Mille watch during the Browns’ season opener. The watch he wore was reportedly priced at $350K USD. If that price tag wasn’t enough to drop jaws, Richard Mille has just recently introduced a new model in partnership with the 2019 Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix where the watch was just unveiled. Before we head into more details, perhaps the biggest eye-opener for this RM 50-04 model is its price tag — it will set you back $1,063,000 USD.

Limited to only 30 in the world, the Manual Winding Tourbillon Split-Seconds Chronograph Kimi Räikkönen (yes, that is the actual long-winded name of the model) pays tribute to both the driver it’s named after and the Alfa Romeo Racing Team. To be more specific about its construction, it’s well worth noting that the watch’s front and back are crafted from Quartz TPT® — that’s 600 layers of 45-micron thick silicon combined. The material is what gives the piece its alien technology-like design. This RM 50-04 is also lightweight with its titanium and Carbon TPT components. We also have the futuristic torque, function and power reserve indicators as well as a number 7 call out for Räikkönen racing number.

In his own words, the champion driver says, “We in Finland are known for our “guts” and determination. We even have a word for it – sisu. However, in my sport sisu is not enough. I have to rely on high-performance technology and team-work but most of all, though, there has to be sheer passion! Richard Mille has powered his own engine for years with all three of these,– guts, technological prowess and above all fun. That’s why I am more than happy to be at the wheel with the ground-breaking RM 50-04 on my wrist.”
