The latest in Richard Mille’s dive watch series, this RM028 has a rather unusual and eye-catching look to it. The RM028 diver was first presented by Mille in 2010 and now has several models in the collection (all highly limited production), but none are quite like the latest rendition when it comes to looks. The case on this piece has a brown PVD finish and is paired with an orange strap. The bezel also has an orange ring on it and there are orange numerals on the microblasted brown PVD bezel (except for the first 15 minutes which as you can see are displayed in a light blue). Inside the watch are many of the innovative mechanics pioneered by Mille — for example the skeletonized rotor with variable geometry, as I have further illustrated below. Richard Mille has so much that is mechanically interesting and unique about his watches and if you are interested you can read more at http://www.richardmille.com/.
This Brown PVD RM028 is available at Richard Mille retailers and Richard Mille boutiques starting next month. Price will likely be in the $$80,000-$90,000 range. Not sure on production quantity — previous RM028s have seen anywhere from 10 to 100 pieces.
