Richard Mille is set to support the Caribbean host of the brand’s favorite sailing events, Les Voiles de St Barth Richard Mille.

The Haut de Gamme watchmaker, which has sponsored the event since 2010, has created a limited edition run of 80 RM 60-01 Automatic Flyback Chronograph Les Voiles de St Barth and will donate all proceeds from the sale of one of the 80 pieces to a worthy cause in St Barts.

While the race went ahead in 2020, this year’s edition has been cancelled due to new quarantine conditions imposed on the island. As the winner of each event traditionally receives a Richard Mille watch, the brand decided to put its 2021 prize to good use and help local causes, with the funds potentially going towards health facilities or environmental projects.

The watch itself is a 4Hz automatic flyback chronograph with 55 hours of power reserve, 60-minute countdown, second timezone UTC hand, annual calendar and oversized date.

The RMAC2 movement features bridges, plates and a balance cock made of black PVD-coated grade 5 titanium while the 50mm case housing it is a mix of titanium and Carbon TPT components.

The RM 60-01 Automatic Flyback Chronograph Les Voiles de St Barth is out now via Richard Mille, priced $200,000 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, Hublot drops four new limited edition tourbillons in summer shades.
