As consistently, Richard Mille has something absolutely crazy to flaunt on the principal day of SIHH. This year it’s the RM 53-01 made in organization with Argentinian polo player Pablo Mac Donough. The watch promptly resembles an exemplary Mille creation, with the tonneau case in Carbon TPT, the obvious spline screws, and the modern looking openworked development becoming the dominant focal point. This development ends up highlighting a huge tourbillon at six o’clock and to be suspended from the sides of the case by an arrangement of steel links and pulleys. Similarly as with numerous other Mille’s, there’s additionally a lot of less in-your-face tech at work as well, including a high-productivity winding framework, a quick pivoting barrel for more steady performance, and a free-sprung, variable inactivity balance. No doubt, the RM 53-01’s no joke.
The Other Mac Donough Watch
If you’re curious about the RM053, the primary watch Richard Mille made with polo player Pablo Mac Donough, you should look at it. It’s an anomaly in the brand’s list from numerous points of view, while as yet remaining consistent with recognizable qualities and principles.

Why This Watch Matters
There are a couple of different watches to remember when taking a gander at the new RM 53-01. First is the brand’s previous joint effort with Mac Donough, the RM053 , delivered in 2012. It’s one of the more uncommon watches that Richard Mille has delivered, with a case taking after something you may take into fight or to the lower part of the ocean, with two crossing openings for the dial and the tourbillon. This time around, the brand has decided on a more Mille-conventional tonneau case with the development drastically filling the enormous opening. That development draws on innovation appeared in a couple earlier RMs, including the all sapphire RM 56-02 and the Rafael Nadal RM 27-01, explicitly the link suspension system.
I’ll be straightforward here: While I discover Richard Mille observes amazingly fascinating in a vitrine or on a table, there are not many that I would really need to wear ( the unthinkably light Rafael Nadal RM027 being at the first spot on the list). This watch looks in fact insane, from the suspension framework to the development design to the weight decrease measures. I’m a lot of anticipating getting it and grinning as I two or three photographs, yet I feel that is as much time as I’ll require with it.
The development is suspended for the situation and can withstand stuns more than 5,000 Gs.
