Richard Mille and Formula 1 Driver Felipe Massa continue their close collaboration
High-end watchmaker and brand Richard Mille brings us two new limited edition models bearing the name of the brand’s Formula 1 “private test driver”. The Felipe Massa RM 004-V2 in an edition of 40 pieces and the Felipe Massa RM 008-V2 limited to 10 pieces. Both watches sport the colours of the Brazilian flag on the inner bezel as well as a red collared crown.
In 2004, Felipe Massa took up the challenge of driving in a Grand Prix race with a Richard Mille tourbillon watch on his wrist, the RM 006 Felipe Massa. This watch was a radical innovation, the first to utilize a carbon nanofiber baseplate. The RM 006 was designed to resist the violent accelerations and vibrations experienced during a Formula 1 Grand Prix race, and its success initiated a series of fine watches dedicated to the Formula 1 high-tech universe. After the RM 006, the RM 009 (29 grams without strap), and the RM 011 LMC editions, the limited runs of the RM 004-V2 and the RM 008-V2 will now take their place manifesting Richard Mille Watches dedication to the world of motor sports.
