Limited to just 50 pieces, the RM 055 All Grey Boutique Edition is the newest iteration of the popular RM 055 Bubba Watson series by Richard Mille. The RM 055 Boutique Edition is available only at select Richard Mille Boutiques in Europe and the Middle East. This watch has an upper bezel created using shot-blasted titanium carbide (TiC), a titanium and carbon alloy with a hardness of 1450 Vickers. TiC was first used by Richard Mille in the creation of the armored case of the Tourbillon RM 053 Pablo Mac Donough which debuted in 2012. Its hardness enables it to withstand extremes and therefore ensures outstanding durability.

The caseband and caseback are made using shot-blasted titanium. The manufacturing process involves shot-blasting the grade 5 titanium case with miniscule glass beads at a low pressure to ensure an even finish and thus creating the ‘all grey’ effect. The manual winding caliber RMUL2 is skeletonized, and made of grade 5 titanium with a PVD- and Titalyt treated baseplate and bridges. According to Mille, this combination provides the whole structure with optimum rigidity and excellent surface flatness and finish, essential aspects for the perfect functioning of the gear train. Originally designed in collaboration with Bubba Watson, one of the most powerful hitters on the PGA Tour, the caliber RMUL2 is capable of withstanding accelerations of over 500-G’s.
Sweet looking watch!
