Richard Mille (Richard Mille) Yohan Blake Tourbillon
The newest member of Richard Mille’s sports series is Yohan Blake Tourbillon RM59-01. Committed to the 2012 London Olympic silver medalist Blake (Blake), paying special attention to right-handed wearers like him.
This piece is designed for runners, and its built-in aerodynamics allows it to withstand all shocks and forces, and adapt to 100-meter sprints at extremely high speeds. This is due to the manual winding tourbillon movement in the watch, which includes four bridges made of corrosion-resistant alloys of aluminum, magnesium, silicon and titanium, and is designed in Jamaican yellow and green. This also represents Blake’s patented “beast pose” gesture, which is known to be displayed by athletes before each competition.
The watch itself is actually very thick between 2 o’clock and 5 o’clock. It is said that this extra thickness prevents the torque limiting crown from rubbing against Blake’s wrist, making him more comfortable when wearing the replica men watch.
The 50mm case adopts a reptile style and is composed of injected carbon nanotubes, which are protected by sapphire crystal glass and an anti-glare coating.
